Interpretation of the term Accessibility at Värmland Archives (English)
This survey examines how a regional archive, Värmland Archives, interprets and works from the departure point of national cultural accessibility goal ”Everyone should have the opportunity to participate in cultural life”. And it is also a comporative study of discourse regarding accessibility between Värmland Archives and some other actors in the archival cultural system.
Critical discourse analysis, according to Norman Fairclough, is used as a theory method. A discourse analysis is made on empirical data based on document study and qualitative research interviews.
My conclusion is that if the term Accessibility is seen as a focal point the accessibility discourse in the documents of Värmland Archives and of the other actors studied can not be clearly discerned. Värmland Archives´s interpretation of terms regarding accessibility analyzed in the survey, varies among the staff regarding how the archives and its services should be accessible, and what accessibility means in the context of the archives. Several different discourses are used and compete as free-flowing signifiers of accessibility interpretation and the order of discourse at Värmland Archives. The other actors´ discourse regarding Accessibility generally means that the cultural and cultural life should be accessible, transparent and usable for “all” people with a democratic perspective of everyone´s right to information and participation in society.
