Dans quelles stipulations archivistes et historiens peuvent-ils exercer leurs métiers ?

L’infléchissement de l. a. recherche universitaire face aux resources léguées par le passé, los angeles découverte de nouveaux gisements d’archives amènent également les historiens à rechercher des approches nouvelles, à proposer des études originales afin de contribuer au progrès général de los angeles connaissance.
