Proveniensprincipproblematiken: Hur omorganisationer och förtecknings-principer försvårar för arkivens användare

Abstract [en]

This article describes a study about a specific form of sample preservation in Swedish municipality archives, a study that did not yield the expected results. Appraisal decisions and archival descriptions were collected and analysed in order to find out whether files related to social support had been preserved in accordance with regulations. However, it turned out that the biggest problem was not to find out whether the records in question had been preserved or not, but to locate files from different periods. The difficulties were caused by a long series of reorganisations of the municipality and exacerbated by a minimalist application of the principle of provenance. As a conclusion, process-based archival description combined with a maximalist application of the principle of provenance is recommended for complex organisations such as a municipality.
