cat | esp | eng

Contents and scope

The INPUT Archive was created in 1994, as a result of the agreement between UPF and INPUT. The Archive has a collection of the programs screened at the annual conferences of INPUT, and documents associated with the organization of these conferences.

This collection is complete from 1994 onwards, stored and available for consulting at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra Poblenou Campus Library, and is a reference tool aimed at the TV professional and the academic communities.

There is also available a database including information about more than 4000 programs screened since 1978, first year of the INPUT conferences.

Sergio Borelli and James Day Documental Collection

The UPF Library also has the personal documental archives in which Sergio Borelli and James Day, founding members of INPUT, kept documentation related to the different conferences and other administrative documentation derived from their management.

The archives have reached UPF thanks to the donation of James Day and Sergio Borelli's daughter, Caterina Borelli.

Who has lent the collection: INPUT

INPUT, a non-profit international organization of public television programme makers and broadcasters, organises an annual conference to discuss and challenge the boundaries of public TV.

Since 1978 INPUT has held these conferences in cities all over the world, presenting new programs selected for their innovative value, their courage in addressing difficult topics or their willingness to explore uncharted TV territory

The University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, keeps and preserve copies of all programmes screened at INPUT conferences since 1994, and some previous.
