The National Library of Norway and the Norwegian Public Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) are developing a joint digital archive for Norwegian folk music. Based on blueprinting the workflow together with the users, the new semantic web-based cataloging system makes an integrated management of relevant metadata and audiovisual collections possible. The digital archive is based on NRK’s new architecture for broadcast. It takes into account the need for online non-linear dissemination and proper rights management, as well as digital acquisition and long term preservation.
