Balisages is Enssib’s new online research journal: it publishes two annual issues in French and aims to reach an international readership by accepting material for publication in English.

Balisages is at the intersection of information, communication and library sciences, as well as an open anthropology (in the sense of a glance and not a discipline) of knowledge. A field that must therefore be mapped between digital and semiotic markers (« balises » in French), to promote or stimulate innovative intelligence on issues that affect both the document and the data, paper and digital as well as the forces that affect them.

Les objets nativement numériques : transformations et nouveaux enjeux documentaires ?

Sous la direction de Benoît Epron, Nathalie Pinède et Agnieszka Tona

Ce premier dossier de la revue Balisages explore la confrontation entre objets nativement numériques - hybrides, structurellement instables, complexes, dynamiques - et logiques documentaires (collecte, description, classification, partage, diffusion, conservation et archivage). L’objectif de ce dossier est donc de mettre en évidence les permanences et renouvellements à l’œuvre dans cette confrontation.

Les six textes réunis contribuent ainsi à esquisser quelques grandes lignes des dynamiques à l’œuvre dans les approches documentaires autour de ces objets nativement numériques, composites et fluides, entre balisages traditionnels, nécessaires adaptations et innovations socionumériques.

Born-digital objects: transformations and new documentary challenges?

This first issue of the journal Balisages explores the confrontation between natively digital objects - hybrid, structurally unstable, complex, dynamic - and documentary logics (collection, description, classification, sharing, dissemination, conservation and archiving). The aim of this dossier is therefore to highlight the permanence and renewal at work in this confrontation.
The six texts brought together contribute to sketch out some broad outlines of the dynamics at work in documentary approaches to these natively digital, composite and fluid objects, between traditional markers, necessary adaptations and socio-digital innovations.
