Archival and document management professionals need appropriate tools, both to incorporate new user profiles and to consolidate the relationship with users in organizations dedicated to document management.
In recent years the world of communication and advertising has rediscovered and updated the power of communicating by telling stories. This is what is known in 21st century jargon as storytelling.
Storytelling is a tool as old as it is effective. Since living in prehistoric caves, humanity has transmitted knowledge through stories. Now it does so through all possible means: films, books, advertisements, exhibitions, television shows, mobile applications ... and will continue to do so in the future with narrative supports that we are not able to imagine.
The most fascinating thing is that the documents preserved in the archives are full of stories that, if well explained, will allow archive professionals to develop successful communication campaigns to make known the historical and documentary legacy of today's society.
