Abstract [en]

With the advancements of web technologies, new modes of data collection have arisen and with those new opportunities and challenges for museums’ documentation work. Drawing on experiences from a web survey on swedes’ memories and experiences of military service, conducted by the Swedish Army museum in 2012, the authors’ of this article argue that web surveys constitute a fruitful mode of collecting memories. However, even though there are many benefits there are also potential problems that should be considered in the collection process as well as the use and analysis of the data. The authors discuss the implications of graphic web design and formulation of the questionnaire, as well as different models of recruiting respondents related to questions of representativeness and generalization in the collected data.
