Arvidson, Allan; Persson, Krister; Mannerheim, Johan
This paper describes the Kulturarw3 Project, a project of the Royal Library of Sweden to test methods of collecting, preserving, and providing access to Swedish electronic documents that are accessible on the World Wide Web in such a way that they can be regarded as published. The first section discusses issues related to collecting electronic documents, including how to collect them, what to collect, the collection strategy, and problems. The second section provides data on the number of Swedish documents on the Web. The third section addresses accessing the material through "surfing" and free-text search. The fourth section covers the preservation of digital information, and the fifth section considers legal issues related to the legal deposit of electronically published material. Contact information for the Kulturarw3 Project, the Royal Library, and the authors is provided. (MES)
