Course content

The course addresses recent issues of digitalisation and society with relevance to records management, archives and collections management. The course provides an overview of important new digital challenges and possible solutions that can also help to develop and strengthen the archives and museums' democracy- and rule-of-law-related roles. These include issues such as cloud storage, big data, service-oriented architecture and data security. Examples of data representation of large amounts of data in scalable systems are reviewed, e.g. storage, representation of images, multimedia, large amounts of text, documents or data.
The course can be replaced, alone or in conjunction with LBAS 3001, by other courses from one of the following NTNU faculties: the Faculty of Humanities, the Faculty of Social and Educational Sciences and the Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering. The courses LBAS 3001 and 3002 can also be replaced by examinations in subjects of similar scope (30 ECTS credits) from exchange abroad.
