DOI: 10.14361/9783839457900-008
This paper explores the challenges and potential of the digitization processes of anthropological collections carried out in Argentina. Firstly, it briefly reviews the historical trajectory and implementation of these processes as an alternative to the access, visibility and use of anthropological collections. Subsequently, a historical overview of these processes in Argentina is presented. Taking as an example the initiatives of digitization of anthropological collections and archives carried out by the Laboratorio de Documentación e Investigaciónen Lingüística y Antropología, the Museo de Antropología and the Instituto de Antropología Córdoba, I examine the epistemological and ontological challenges of the digitization processes.
