Abstract

The UNAM’s cultural spaces and assets have seen constant growth in order to better fulfil the University’s commitment to artistic and cultural activities. A special collaboration was established between the cultural area and the librarianship in order to develop a project that would simultaneously facilitate the retrieval of information regarding cultural spaces and infrastructure, record the University’s cultural heritage and carry out the scheduling of artistic and cultural activities. The Project was developed via the action research method: plan, act, observe/collect, reflect/review. These activities are carried out in cultural spaces expressly intended for this purpose, as well as in the different campuses and dependencies that make up this immense university. Due to the advances of the Project, a database has been created, gathering the necessary data to consult and recover the cultural resources the University possesses, enabling the University to program activities and make full use of the cultural infrastructure’s capacity. Once the basic structure of the data to be organised had been established, the Object-Oriented Analysis and Design methodology was implemented in order to obtain a meta-structure of analysis relevant to the development of systems, with the Entities, Attributes and Relationships. International standards were adhered to throughout both the survey and certification of information.
