Three tons of mini-computers: 40 years with computers in the service at the university – A documentation of the work process (English)
Abstract [en]

Uppsala University has a number of cultural institutions including Museum Gustavianum. As a cultural institution the museum’s assignment is to care for, preserve and mediate the University's heritage.

It is through cooperation with the institutions and students that they mediate the cultural heritage by way of, public exhibitions, theme days and by keeping the collections open to researchers and students.

The purpose of this thesis is to document and present the work process that lies behind the temporary exhibition “Three tons of mini-computers: 40 years with computers in the service of the university” at the Museum Gustavianum.

The documentation and the work process with the exhibition were done during three months in the spring of 2012. The gathering of the empirical material has been done through qualitative methods such as participation, observation and interviews. In addition to my own, experiences and notes, I have also had access to the museums notes, budgets, operational plans, exhibition sketches, funding applications and e-mail regarding the exhibition.

Working with this exhibition I have come to the conclusion that those involved must be explicit as regards the details of the work process and time schedule. I have found that there is perhaps a need for more meetings to insure and ease the work process. Finally I think that it would be good to create texts that could be used more flexible.
