Abstract [en]

Project documentations, minutes of meeting, emergency plans, and inspection reports are all examples of records, recorded information. One key characteristic of records is preservation, records may be preserved for long time. There is a changeover from paper based records to electronic records in many organizations. Electronic records are part of computerbased information systems and need to be handled automatically following archival requirements to remain trustworthiness during preservation. The ISO definition of record is abstract and give limited support in understanding what a record is on operational level. Knowledge valuable for practitoners involved in design and development of information systems. The aim of this paper is to identify different classes of records, and identify categories of characteristics or variables for these records, i.e. make records operational. This paper is based on a qualitative case study performed at four different organizations. Empirical data was collected from multiple sources in order to understand records. More than 100 different records were identified, which together made ten classes of records. The classes together with the characteristics resulted in an object oriented based diagram, a visualization of the analysis of the empirical data.
