    Abstract

    This paper has the objective of finding a viable theoretical foundation for Enterprise Information Management (EIM) in World 2.0. The framework of the “Archive-as-Is” is an organization-oriented archival theory. The framework is a declarative model for understanding the archive “as is”, how it has been designed, constructed, processed, manipulated, and managed, and how it has “grown” to be the archive that the organization that generated it, wanted it to be. From the moment of their creation, archives are distortions of reality, only presenting biased images of the past due to the way organizations (and the people) “behave”. Contextualizing (by archivists) will be crucial to “correct” that distortion as much as is possible. The challenge in World 2.0 is to ensure that the organizational archive can be used as a “trusted” resource and be managed in such a way that an organization can survive the challenges of World 2.0. The theoretical framework of the “Archive-as-Is” may be the model that could be used to realize just that.
