ABM Resurs: connecting galleries, libraries, museums and archives in Sweden
ABM Resurs is a joint platform funded by the Västernorrland County Museum, the County Library of Västernorrland and the Regional State Archives of National Archives.
The nature of ABM Resurs allows for a lot of experimentation and joint projects with institutions which do not have resources or in-house specialists to undertake the whole project work. We cooperate with similar regional platforms and interconnect people whenever there is scope and benefits to work together.
ABM Resurs has a profile of working with digital projects, digitising, and digital infrastructure. During the past decade we have been involved in many European projects such as MICHAEL, Athena, EuropeanaLocal and we are currently cooperating on Europeana Inside, Culture Cloud and LoCloud. This has made us very experienced in mapping of metadata, transport protocols, database convertion, etc.
Our Interest in LoCloud relates to the public affairs of the GLAM sector, which has the objective of being open for the civil society’s interest in digitised cultural heritage. For ABM Resurs this means gathering digitised images, films, recordings, photos and archival objects and to be a reference point on the internet for the history of our region. A regional cloud utility gives individuals and small societies a chance to store and publish their content, and to relate it to other content within a wider context.
