Paper at the ICKM 2018 conference, Vancouver, BC.


There is a broad consensus that better models for assessing the impact of information in the context of information repositories and digital preservation efforts are needed. Rather than proposing new quality measures for the information itself, which has been a common approach in earlier proposals, this text probes into a problem identified in earlier research that in spite of the existence of multiple definitions and standards for information quality, the usefulness of information tends to have multiple problems. The aim, with an empirical focus on archaeological information, is to examine how to take into account the current information production and management practices and the present and anticipated use of these resources as an aspect of the impact and usefulness of information.
