CNVLD launches its media archive

The Cambodian National Volleyball League (Disabled) has launched its own online print media archive to give a historical perspective to its notable achievements since 1999.

The PDF-formatted archive, which contains more than 800 scanned media documents highlighting CNVLD’s milestones, is categorised by three main icons: volleyball, volleyball World Cup and wheelchair racing.

The listings are also arranged in chronological order by language in three sections: English, Khmer and International.

The CNVLD treasure trove includes media accounts of the organisation receiving the United Nations Best Practices Award in 2006 and the Cambodian national standing volleyball team achieving its current No 2 world ranking behind Germany.

“It will expand to include the recent establishment of Cambodia’s first women’s wheelchair basketball program,” CNVLD secretary-general Chris Minko told the Post yesterday.

“The CNVLD Online Print Media Archive represents a valuable tool for researchers, academics, students and practitioners of sports and development, and will continue to be updated.’’

Meanwhile, the organisation has expressed its appreciation for the work of  Ray Walker, from Australia, in the preparation of the archive.

The CNVLD online archive can be accessed at www.standupcambodia.net/media/international.html
