Collection Summary

Digitalarkivet (Digital Archives) is the Norwegian National Archives' channel for publication of digitised archive material in the form of images, transcribed texts and databases. The publication includes archive material both from electronic sources and traditional paper sources, that are either digitised from an original or a microfilm. The digitised material is processed in the National Archives (Riksarkivet), the regional state archives (statsarkivene) or in our digitising units. Some of the material is also produced through external co-operation. The Regional State Archives of Bergen is responsible for the daily management of Digitalarkivet, as well as being chief editor of the internet site.

Digitalarkivet invites external institutions, organisations and private persons to publish digitised archive material on the internet site. Contributors will get their material published in Digitalpensjonatet (Digital Inn), in which free storage and publication technology, are offered. The guests at Digitalpensjonatet hold the rights to their submitted material and are also responsible for the quality of the digitised material.
