The Associazione Italiana per la Documentazione Avanzata (AIDA) archive, temporarily stored at the University of Calabria for reorganization purposes, contains scientific and technical-administrative documents from which it is possible to draw information to re-construct the Association's activities and the role that it has played in the evolution of Documentation in Italy. AIDA was founded in 1983 by Paolo Bisogno and a team of researchers at the ISRDS-CNR with the aim of developing a documentary culture of information. The Association's mission was to spread knowledge about Documentation and the documentalist. It promoted the organization of events, training and certification activities. Moreover, it supported the scientific community through the establishment of working and study groups and contributed to the dissemination of information through the journal «AIDAinformazioni». AIDA was present in the national and international information science scene through collaboration with other professional associations.
