The model of the organisation

Administratively Saami Culture Archive is a part of Oulu University’s Central Archive, which provides a high archive status and guarantees the preservation of the collection. The Giellagas Institute is responsible for the functions of the archive and makes decisions regarding all use of the material. The Giellagas Institute has the required expertise of Saami Culture and Saami language, which is crucial when dealing with highly culture-sensitive material on indigenous people. The shared responsibility of the Saami Culture Archive offers opportunities to co-operate with other research infrastructures at both national and international levels.
