In the context of the reactivation of Colombian Oceanographic Data Center, some historians looked for to define an approach to archival method for scientific search (also call archaeology into the oceanographic data management community) and rescue the historical memory of Colombian Pacific oceanographic information, and at the same time, to satisfy the researchers requirements to get historical oceanographic data and information that will allow them to obtain a theoretical base to make different type of studies, like climatic prediction, wave and currents modeling, and investigation about naturals phenomena like El Nino Southern Oscillation that it affects the Colombian Pacific coast. This work is an interdisciplinary effort made from the identification of the antecedents of Colombian marine research institutes and national oceanographic data centres of other countries, as much throughout the American continent as of the European, which have had experience in safeguard the history of the ocean, coasts and insulars areas in the last decades. The definition of this methodology considered the conceptual framework of the oceanographic information and data rescue, the identification of the documentary sources and marine information available into archives and libraries, the measures of documentary conservation that include restoration, digitalization of documents and the normalization of metadata recovered according to the standard recommended by the International Oceanographic Data and Information program.
