Creating Archival Knowledge in a Digital World

Seminar 22-23 November 2018 at Lund University with the National Archives of Sweden and Malmö City Archives.

Archivists have always worked towards making records searchable and understandable in order to facilitate knowledge. During the last 30 years, several international standards have emerged, enabling national and international archival search databases. Can the archivists, by making good metadata, do more to strengthen democratic society and if so, what should we do more of?

Are the archivists doing the right thing? Will the metadata that we focus on be relevant for the users? If so, for which users? How do the needs change when the archival records are being born digital? What is the challenge when the records reach the internet and are exposed to all kinds of knowledge seekers? How should the archivists think to optimize the use of the records in different contexts to facilitate the use of archival records in a digital world?

We are proud to present

We are proud to present a seminar where the metadata issues are addressed in its diversity. It is a vital question and one of the most difficult in archival science today.

  • Dr Börje Justrell, former IT Director at the National Archives of Sweden, was one of the pioneers in the field of adapting archives for a digital age and has studied and worked with applying metadata standards in EU and in Sweden.
  • Professor Anne Gilliland, from UCLA has for many years studied recordkeeping and archival systems in an international context. In her research she focuses on accountability, equity, social justice and rights, especially human rights.
  • Director Jaana Kilkki, National Archives of Finland has been involved with the development of archival description and recordkeeping metadata in Finland since the publication of ISAD(G) standard, and as a former member of the ICA EGAD-group studied the Records in Context conceptual model for archival description from a Finnish view point.
  • Dr Ann-Sofie Klareld, from Lund University and Mid Sweden University has studied ongoing changes of recordkeeping responsibilities that occur in the public administration, alongside the development of digital work processes and e-government.
