There are three closely related academic disciplines at the Division of ALM: Archival Studies, Information Studies and Museology. The three disciplines collaborate within the research group Information Practices: Communication, Culture and Society. The disciplines have a cultural sciences character and research has mainly two themes:
Practices: Research on the social and cultural practices that relate to information, culture and documents. The focus is here on people's activities in everyday situations. This may include evaluation of credibility of information, work with research data or cultural heritage uses.
Institutions: Research on institutions preferably (but not exclusively) archives, libraries and museums which convey and in some cases produce information and culture. This research is linked to a culture and information policy tradition.
The division has a PhD program in Information Studies.
