Cataloguing

M.A. (Master of Arts) Johanna Edgren’s work deals with cataloguing in KAVI’s department of the Radio and Television Archive. While in the university Edgren majored in Literature with studies in Information Science as well. “Radio and Television Archive was formed in 2008, and I came along quite soon after the start in year 2010. Before that I had been a full-time mother, worked in libraries and done archival work for the Rakennustaiteen seura.

At KAVI I catalogue television and radio materials which are mostly digital. I work with two in-house databases, Ritva and Tenho. My work demands content description skills and accuracy as well as information search abilities. IT knowhow is also a must. I enjoy our great working atmosphere and our organization’s mission appeals to me. Preserving our cultural heritage is important to me and that’s why I’m happy to work here. Practical things work fine as well, and I especially appreciate the flexible working hours.”
