This talk results from research carried out by the author for her Graduate Certificate in Preservation and Management of the Science and Health Cultural Heritage, at Fundação Oswaldo Cruz – Fiocruz. It discusses the "incorporation” and "disincorporation” of archival documents, proposed by Fiocruz institutional policies: Política de Preservação e Gestão de Acervos Culturais das Ciências e da Saúde and Programa de Incorporação de Acervos. The talk discusses the need of balance between objective and subjective criteria in the assessment of archival documents. It also stresses the importance of the trans-disciplinary research as an alternative to this duality, as well as the significance of the stakeholder to this discussion. This research is now being applied to the evaluation of the state of conservation of a collection of photographic documents that was initially separated to be discarded. After this evaluation, the author will propose a further assessment that considers the institutional guidelines as well as the opinion of the non-conservation technical staff of our institution.
