This study investigates minor cultural institutions’approaches to digitalization and how problems in connectionwith digitization processes may be resolved. The methodsused for this study include structured interviews with fiveminor cultural institutions, a semi-structured interview and agroup interview with experts in digitization. The results wereanalyzed through the identification of themes in theempirical material.The results show that there are a number of factors affectingminor institutions’ digitization, for example, the need todigitize complete or parts of collections, staff views ondigitization, financing, national interest in regional heritagecollections and finally, strategic decisions to preserve ormake available the digitized material. The study also showedthat the solution to these problems can be found incollaboration between cultural institutions, improvedcommunication between cultural institutions and theDepartment of Culture as well as cooperation with larger andmore experienced institutions.
