Folkloristic terms



An archive signature refers to the archive catalogue. The signature is unique for each archive folder. In the Norwegian Folklore Archive, it is structured as follows: NFS collector, the number of the folder. The signature NFS Frimannslund 2, for example, refers to the second folder in the collection after Rigmor Frimannslund. In the Ethno-Folkloristic Archive, the signature is structured in the same way. EFA Hannaas 5 thus refers to folder five in the collection after Hannaas. In the Norwegian Ethnological Research, the collection is organized according to the questionnaire numbers. The individual questionnaire responses are also registered with a unique accession number, that is, a unique serial number assigned when they were received by the archive.
