The aim of this one year master thesis in archival science was to arrange and catalogue two similar school archives at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, using two different types of methods; the traditional Swedish common archive schedule and the modern process oriented method. The result was then discussed based on the ability of the two types of archive lists to enable information retrieval and to reflect the activities of the school.
This work will show that there is a signicant difference in how these two methods for catalogueing archival records manage to reflect the activities of each school. The process-oriented method focuses on the activities when constructing the archive list, while the Swedish common archive schedule base the archive list on stipulated headings. As for each method's ability to enable information retrieval, the study shows that both the process oriented method and the traditional method face the question of how much metadata is to much, when presenting a record from an information retrieval point of view. This thesis concludes that although process-oriented method more clearly reflects the activities of the organisation behind the records, there is still no standardised way of presenting the information in an easily accessible way. Also, there is much to do before archives will be considered a part of the daily document management, and not closed , dust filled institutions.
