Reusable archeology. On making museum collections available for research

We want to investigate what the researchers are missing? How can we enrich existing databases with content and relationships that make them available for research? In collaboration with Dalarna's Museum, we want to develop a working model for how digital accessibility can be developed in relation to researchers as the primary target group.

The aim is to develop a working model for how the digital infrastructures used by museums can be enriched with content in relation to the research community as a target group. How the material becomes searchable and accessible with information on how to access it and with an information structure that enables comparisons with other data, in accordance with the FAIR principles regarding open science and data management.
