Digitizing phonograph records : A review and comparison of the work being done at the National Library of Sweden and the Record archive of the Swedish Radio (English)
Abstract [en]

This master thesis is an attempt to analyze and compare the work being done to digitize the phonograph record collections of The National Library of Sweden (KB) and the Record archive of the Swedish Radio. Through interviews, official documents and newspaper articles the methods of digitization and the reasoning behind these methods are explored in order to answer the questions of what the purpose and goals of the digitization efforts are, what similarities and differences can be found in the digitization methods of the two archives, how these differences can be explained and how the digital files function as a representation of the analog object. The two archives are found to have a common goal of providing access to their collections through digitization, but the Royal Library has a greater emphasis on digitization as a means of preservation of the cultural heritage. This largely mirrors the overall objectives of the organizations. At present, both archives only digitize on demand, and choose not to scan the record covers. However, KB has a long term goal to digitize the entire collection, with covers. Overall, the Royal Library adhere more closely to archival standards and have better trained personnel. Neither of the archives are found to be fully utilizing the possibilities of digitization as a new way to represent the original objects, but are rather primarily adding a sound file to existing catalogs.
