Provenance: Crossing Boundaries
provenance, archives management, computer science
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
Through examining the concept of provenance and its use in several communities, including archives management, computer science, rare book cataloging and archaeology, this paper presents an expanded view of provenance. For end-users, provenance covers the whole life cycle of records, from creation and evolution to acquisition, processing, preservation and access. During each stage of this life cycle, both the sociopolitical context and technical details fall within the scope of provenance.
