Abstract:

Archives and records management presents a series of requirements to information systems that distinguishes them from content and document management systems. In spite of the often fundamental differences, some of the approaches and functions implemented in the content and document management systems could be useful in archival and records management contexts. This article discusses the usability of semantic wikis in the management of archival information. The discussion is based on a series of development projects conducted in Finland. It appears that a semantic wiki has potential especially in the management and use of digital surrogates. There are some technical and especially major theoretical issues related to the use of semantic wikis in records management. It is concluded, however, that the principles of wiki approach could serve as a useful reference in discussions related to usability, access and rights and practices of participation in the context of archives and records management.
