Classification of archives

Organizing and registering of valuable records is an important task. The international community of archival institutions has agreed to follow a common standard for archival description. This standard can also be helpful for individuals in their own handling of personal papers and other archival material.

International Standard Archival Description - General (ISAD-G)

On the website of the International Council on Archives the standard for archival description is presented.

"Allment arkivskjema" - ISAD-G in Norway

In Norway ISAD-G has been translated and adapted to the context and needs in this country. The website of the National Archives has issued a presentation of the standard.

Jeg valgte MHS og er svært fornøyd med både studiemiljøet, fagene og ikke minst de interessante studieturene.
