The four sub use cases illustrate scenarios where an end-user wants to find information in a database. It also included access to EDRM-systems which have been archived as a whole (i.e. technically as a database). The main difference between the “pure database” and the EDRM-system is that the latter usually includes much more binary content (i.e. unstructured documents and records). Therefore also the size of the archived EDRM-system is usually much larger and poses additional scalability issues.

The sub use cases are based on the experiences with the Sofia tool at the Danish National Archives (in use since 2008). It is assumed that the database is wrapped in the SIARD format and has been loaded into a standard RDBMS.

The focus is on search in data, but user-friendly navigation is also important and has to be taken into account when making requirements and designing the system.

Saving, exporting and printing functionality should also be available. However, if data are restricted there is a need for preventing access to these functionalities.
