Where is the library, or is it an archive? Assessing the impact and implications of archaeological information collections

Isto Huvila

Abstract


Preliminary observations made during the analysis of an interview study of Swedish professionals working with the management of archaeological information are discussed. The paper proposes that three perspectives called library, archive and museum characterise the articulations of informants on what archaeological information is, what is its relevance and impact and how it should be managed and made accessible.

Keywords: digital libraries, digital archives, concepts, impact, archaeology
