Digitization of images in two Swedish museums (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to describe digitization of images in two Swedish museums. We want to examine their reasons to digitalize; the administrative and organizational aspects of their work and how they handle the problems of preservation and access to the digitalized images. These problems will be examined through our main questions: Why do the museums choose to digitize their image collections? How are their work organized in terms of staff and economical matters? What kind of software do they use, and which technical solutions do they choose? Which preservation and access strategies for ensuring long-term preservation and access of the digital images do the museums work with? How do the museums select material for digitization? How do they handle the matter of discarding of materials? The study was conducted both by reading text material and interviewing personnel at the two museums. The museums’ main reasons for digitization seem to be to protect fragile materials from deterioration and provide greater access to the collections. In securing long-term preservation and access, the need for well educated staff members tends to be great, but it is not always prioritized in all of the professions in the museums. Policies are needed to ensure both digital preservation and access but also selection for digitization and discarding of materials. The institutions are well aware of the problems and the need for policies and strategies, but not all of them have yet begun to develop a policy.
