The purpose of my one master's theses was to do a cataloging assignment at the archive of the the Swedish Parliamentary Archive. Because of the relative small amount of documents in the archives given I did two, both of them belonging to the administrative body the Riksdag Administration. The first was the records of the Parliamentary library and the second was the registry of the incoming records in the Riksdag Administration.I used comparative studies of the work process and method used when cataloging the two archives. The result was that depending on the status of the archive the work process and method used differs. In the case of the Parliamentary library the amount of records was smaller than the registry and yet it took a longer time to catalogue it due to the archives state. There were a lot of decisions to be made concerning the placing of the documents in the cataloging structure, what documents that were to be discarded, how to do with the inner order of the documents while the registry was already organized an no documents had to be discarded. Common factors for them was the question of Respect the fonds and their belonging to the Riksdag administration. The result was that although there could be problems in the future with finding the documents belonging to the archives it's hard finding an alternative since the fonds is the Riksdag administration and the documents produced by its different units should belong to the same fonds. And to create new archives every time a unit changes name would in itself lead to difficulties finding the documents in the future. My one concern though, is the name of the fonds "Riksdagsförvaltningen med föregångare" (The Riksdag Administration with predecessors) is a bit misguiding and should be changed to "Riksdagsförvaltningen och dess föregångare Riksdagens förvaltningskontor" (The Riksdags administration and its predecessor the Riksdag administrations office") in the purpose of better searchability in the future.
