Inauguración de la Biblioteca Digital de la International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI)

Hace unos días, el Comité Ejecutivo de la Comisión Internacional para la Instrucción Matemática (ICMI en sus siglas inglesas) anunció la inauguración de su Biblioteca Digital. Cuál es el contenido de esta Biblioteca y cuál es su interés para la comunidad educativa matemática  es el objetivo de esta entrada.

El proyecto trata de hacer accesible online todos los documentos relativos a ICMI y a sus actividades, incluyendo materiales tan importantes como los libros de los llamados ICMI Study o las Actas de los Congresos Internacionales de Educación Matemática (ICME en sus siglas inglesas), que se celebran cada cuatro años alternándose con los ICM.

Este proyecto llevaba gestándose unos cuantos años, y, finalmente, en 2007 se le dio un nuevo ímpetu, en el contexto del Programa de Digitalización de la Unión Matemática Internacional (IMU) y de su Committee on Electronic Information and Communication (CEIC).

El material accessible en la ICMI Digital Library incluirá, entre otras cosas,

•    Los números del ICMI Bulletin,
•    Los números de L’Enseignement Mathématique
•    Las Actas de los congresos de ICME,
•    Los volúmenes resultantes de los ICMI Studies,
•    Actas de los congresos regionales de ICMI.

Entre los libros que se ofrecen está uno singular: las Actas del congreso organizado en 2000 por ICMI y la Universidad de Ginebra para celebrar el centenario de la revista L’Enseignement Mathématique, el órgano oficial de ICMI desde que se creara esta organización en 1908.

Para dar cuenta del enorme valor de este instrumento que ICMI va a poner en juego basta hacer un repaso a los títulos de los Estudios ICMI publicados hasta el momento y que en breve estarán accesibles en Open Access en esta Biblioteca Digital:

ICMI Study Volumes (NISS)

Los cinco primeros fueron publicados por la Cambridge University Press en la colección ICMI Study Series.

Desde el sexto, fueron apareciendo en la colección New ICMI Studies Series (NISS), haciendo de editores los correspondientes Presidente y Secretario General de ICMI en cada ocasión. Los primeros volúmenes, desde 1993, fueron publicados por Kluwer Academic Publishers. Tras la fusión con Kluwer en 2004, es ahora Springer la casa editora.
