On 15 and 16 December, À la recherche... was held, an activity that is part of the 50th anniversary of EINA, the aim of which included the contribution of documentary material to extend and complete the collection of the EINA historical archive. Basically, the aim was to collect work by former students or other documents relating to the school’s learning, teaching or activities.

As well as the documentary aim, the day had a festive air of reunion. The success of the participation in it was made evident with the presence of dozens of teachers and former students, 37 of whom contributed documents.

Among the materials loaned, currently being digitised, there are 918 photographs in different formats (paper, negatives and slides), as well as another block relating to course work, class notes or academic administration documents (course plans, subject programmes, student cards, etc.), comprised of an approximate total of 3,000 images. It is predicted that the process to digitise all of this material will be completed by the end of February.
