ABM-skrift (ABM Publications)
The Norwegian Archive, Library and Museum Authority (ABM-utvikling) was
established on 1st January, 2003 following the merger of the Norwegian
Directorate for Public Libraries, the Norwegian Museum Authority, and the
National Office for Research Documentation, Academic and Special Libraries.
ABM-utvikling is an advisory and executive organisation for the Ministry of
Culture and Church Affairs on the specialist fields of archives, libraries
It is the task of ABM-utvikling to carry out active strategic development
work for the co-ordination, rationalization, and strengthening of the
archive, library and museum sector.
The aim is to put the constituent sectors and individual institutions in a
better position to solve the tasks that relate to their specialist subjects
and to find ways of meeting the new challenges presented by society.
ABM-utvikling participates in all of the tasks that involve the archives,
libraries and museums, but it also works across the boundaries of the
specialist fields and handles cross-ministerial joint initiatives relating
to the archive, library and museum sector.
ABM-skrift (ABM Publications) is a series of publications containing subject
related articles of relevance to the whole archive, library and museum
