A Research Program for Studying LAMs and Community in the Digital Age
The paper outlines a research effort into the changing representations, policies, strategies, activities, and practices of libraries, archives, and museums (LAMs) in the digital age. Comprehensive social changes including big slow-moving processes, such as aging populations, global migration, technological change, and environmental change, expose communities and LAM institutions to vulnerabilities. How do the institutions handle vulnerabilities, how do they become more resilient, and how do they contribute to building the resilience of their local communities?

Viken Valvåg, Steffen (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2012-01-30)MapReduce has become a widely employed programming model for large-scale data-intensive computations. Traditional MapReduce engines employ dynamic routing of data as a core mechanism for fault tolerance and load balancing. An alternative mechanism is static routing, which reduces the need to store temporary copies of intermediate data, but requires a tighter coupling between the components for ...
Thomassen, Sigurd (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-12-14)Due to the large increase of image data in animal surveillance, an effective and efficient way of labeling said data is required.
