On January 10, 2017, part of the Grup Excursionista i Esportiu Gironí (GEiEG) documentary archive was deposited at the Girona Municipal Archives. The collection was primarily made up of the complete collection of the organization’s newsletters, published since 1920; the posters of the activities organized, and photos of the different sections of the Group, in addition to a couple summaries and videos. The conference is focused on describing the tasks associated with the organization, description and diffusion of these documents at the AMGi. These have resulted in, most recently, the cataloging, digitizing and website publication of the posters and newsletters; the selection, documenting and digitizing of photographs, in addition to reinstalling the documentation on display cases and on material that is adequate according to its size and format.
