Amidst Guidelines and Practice : A Study of the Digitization Projects at Eight Public Libraries (English)
Abstract [en]

This master’s degree thesis stems from the new possibilities that digitization offers preserving and increased public accessibility of our cultural heritage, but also how a lack of co-ordination and standardization may result in short-term projects and lack of quality. The purpose of this thesis is to examine a selection of public libraries’ digitization projects. The two questions posed are: How does a selection of public libraries conduct their digitization projects concerning a) goals and objectives, b) execution c) what resources they encompass? How well does their work agree with the recommendations that exists for goals, objectives and execution? To answer the questions interviews were conducted with persons in various ways involved with the digitization projects. In addition to the result of the interviews, material from guiding principles and recommendations by a selection of actors within the fields of digitization was used. The study shows first of all how publication of the digitized material, rather than preservation, was the most common goal and objective and that local material was prioritized. The execution, concerning technical aspects, differed somewhat among the participating libraries, and also choices made regarding for example file-format. These differences can partly be explained by different ambitions among the participating libraries but also due to lack of standardization. Furthermore, all libraries, except one, had financed their projects with external contributions.
