Cleaning, not surgery

Miriam Peña Pimentel:
"The research travel to Bolivia gave me the opportunity to see and work in a completely different environment. That experience allowed me to focus the research in the changes on techniques according to the ecosystem in which the work had to be done".

"The management of the information from a very old manuscript to a data base implies a change of codes, the researcher has to understand both codes and made the "translation" from one to the other, to preserve as much information as its possible".
