En utgrävning i den digitala myllan : En empirisk studie av hur uppdragsarkeologiska verksamheter i Skåne bevarar, arkiverar och tillgängliggör digital dokumentation

Detta är en Master-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för ABM och digitala kulturer

Sammanfattning: This Master’s thesis investigates how organisations engaged in rescue archaeology preserves, files and makes digital documentation available for archaeologists, researchers and the general public. The first question discussed in this thesis is how organisations engaged in rescue archaeology manage their digital documentation material, as seen from the Records Continuum Model, and how it relates to the management, strategies and filing of it. A second aspect concerns how the organisations engaged in rescue archaeology consider accessibility, and what they think of the use of their underlying rescue archaeological material seen from the competitive situation that occurs. A third aspect concerns the conditions existing for the organisations to long-term preserve digital archaeological material seen from the OAIS model, and why this is essential for rescue archaeology. The organisations investigated are Länsstyrelsen in Skåne Län, Regionmuseet in Kristianstad, Malmö museums, Sydsvensk Arkeologi AB, UV Syd and ATA (Antikvarisk-Topografiska arkivet) and the Kulturen museum. Qualitative interviews have been used to be able to retrieve empirical information for this thesis. The interviews were carried out through personal interviews with personnel from the different organisations, and through e-mail correspondence. The results of this thesis show that the rescue archaeological sector is in need of strategies and standards for preserving digital documentation in order to fully meet the organisations will to make the documentation material accessible to the general public, archaeologists and researchers no matter if they are competitors or not. A second result shows that the OAIS model will work as a reference model for the organisations to be able to implement an e-archive and hopefully solve the problems stated above. A third result shows that the archivist will have to become more proactive, in accordance with the Records Continuum Model, and step in to make sure that the documentation will be secured for the future even before it has been created.
