Hi, Aitziber, 

Have you tried Overview? I have only played a little bit with it, but it seems to be a useful tool for managing huge volumes of docs. It also allows you to search through the content of the docs and add tags to them. There is a free tutorial available at Poynter's News University (http://www.newsu.org/node/346317).

Let me know if it helps.

> The productive conference will be held August 27-29th, 2015 in the City of
> Buenos Aires, Argentina.
> *Hacks/Hackers BA Media Party* is the most ambitious media hand-on event in

> The Media Party is organized by Hacks/Hackers Buenos Aires

> network that brings together journalists and programmers; this organization
> in Buenos Aires has now reached 3,800 members, and it is the biggest

> and Knight Fellows from the International Center For Journalists.
> In the three past years, the Media Party brought together more than a
> thousand people, positioning the event as the largest of its kind ever to
> be held in Latin America. Apart of the keynotes, we hosted more than 40
> parallel workshops, and a closing hackathon helped projects to scale and to

> This year?s event will follow a similar format. During the first two days,
> participants will attend to talks led by international experts during the
> mornings, to learn about tools and work being done in the field. The
> afternoons will feature learning by doing workshops on data journalism,
> citizen journalism, utility news, revenue streams, open data applications,

> working to develop innovative proposals generated within the community.
> Innovative projects across the region will converge during three days in
> Buenos Aires.

> Knight Foundation, Knight Mozilla Open News, International Center For
> Journalists, Mozilla Foundation, AMI, HIVOS and the World Bank Institute,
