Centro TV and Documentaries
Centro is working on building Centro TV as a new standalone multimedia educational center with channels displaying interviews, events, films, and links to the Library and Archives.
“We see the web as a way to democratize information and celebrate our archives,” said Edwin Meléndez, Centro director. “We want to make those materials that are available more accessible to teachers for elementary and high school students as well as college students.”
Richard Unapanta, media production manager, said the media team has been busy working on producing and documenting video content to highlight Centro’s programming. They also use multimedia tools to curate and share the rich content Centro has to offer with a wider audience online.
