Dr. Revel presents the history and the main features of the actual physical multimedia and visual archive with its eight tabs on the Ateneo website since 2011. She then considers several directions for future collections, long lasting conservation, and research programs related to the multifaceted artistic expressions of an intangible heritage in the Philippines. She adds that with a new immersion in the ecosystem of the Web, important issues in making choices need to be taken into consideration since an archive is alive only, and only if, it transforms and enriches itself.
