VICENTINI JORENTE, Maria José  and  KAHN, Karen. Stories of life as a museum fact treated by the design of the Information in the digital curatorship in the Museu da Pessoa. Biblios [online]. 2019, n.75, pp.16-27. ISSN 1562-4730.

The article is based on research that seeks to verify the role of Information Design in the Digital Curation of Museu da Pessoa in Web 2.0, and the objective is to reflect on its museological fact, life stories. In times of extended custody, Museu da Pessoa stands out as a dynamic, interactive and collaborative memorial system. Planned in and for Digital Curation, Information Design facilitates the indexing of informational content as well as the graphic organization of such content, both top-down and bottom-up, so that subjects not only recognize life stories as an object, but also recognize them as human beings who are active in the information process, reinforcing identity links through Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The need to acknowledge new means and strategies for Digital Curation in museum institutions in the scope of Information Science justifies this article with which we expect to enhance the understanding of the Museum as a model for the preservation and interaction with life stories, autobiographical narratives, understood in this context as cultural goods and memory heritage. As a result of the study, it is verified that, through its methodologies and in convergence with Information Science, Information Design creates a simulacrum of online, flowing and ubiquitous museum in addition to the conditions for Digital Curation (top -down) aiming at the representation and preservation of digital cultural objects, as well as their access to the institution's information agents and bottom-up users, interactively, in the Web 2.0.
