Abstract [en]

The idea to write this two years master's thesis in Library-and information science came to me at work at the

Royal Palace in Stockholm, where I daily answer questions on such topics as history and art. In order to deepen

my knowledge and get answers to my questions, I thought it would be interesting to look at my work place as a

domain and thus examine its information supply. The thesis therefore consists of a domain analysis of the

Royal Collections, a department of the Royal Court. The study is limited in time from 1996 to 2012. The

Collections can be seen as tasked with a double function within the Court, to support the Head of State in his

efforts to represent the country and to preserve and display the royal heritage. The King himself has stated that

as many as possible should be able to enjoy the royal heritage and to get an experience of Swedish history as a

result of a visit to the royal palaces.

I have chosen three of eleven methods Hjørland presents as possible to carry out a domain analysis as my

method. These are the historical studies of information exchange, epistemological and critical studies and

studies of structures and institutions in scientific communication. Firstly I describe the Royal Collections

history of information exchange to understand how it is organised today. From an epistemological, critical

study I believe that one can discern a specificity of feminist views on sex in part of the Royal Collections

exhibition catalogs. I also describe the structures that includes the Royal Collections includes and find that they

often are old ones which may be due to the royal family's high position in society . My suggestions for

improving the domains information exchange for the future is to make their collections available om the

Internet. This is a two years master's thesis.
