    A Historical Approach to the Development of Democracy and the Archival Society in Korea

    오항녕 | 2005, (11) | pp.15~40 | number of Cited : 10
    Abstract PDF
    ‘Governance’ is a subject that is widely discussed these days in the government and the academic world. I think that the new concept, ‘governance’, is a strategy to develop the democracy of the society in its institutional and functional aspects. When we are going to discuss about governance, public records and their relationships, without understanding the meaning of ‘public’ in Korea, we cannot expect to discuss the matter precisely. It is said that Korean public service sectors are awash with authoritarianism and unreasonableness, and that they are at the center of seething corruption and bribe scandals. It is the legacy that the regimes adopted in the aftermath of the Japanese colonial rule for 35 years. The colonial legacy included not simply the practice of the Japanese colony, but also people who had collaborated the Japanese. The American military government and Rhee, Sung-Man regime also appointed the same officials to government posts. As was the same case in other areas including economy, press, education, politics, law, etc. In this point of view, “Righting historical wrongs”, a controversial issue now in Korea, aims at establishing the right relationships between an individual and the public, and eventually laying the foundation of democracy for future generation, a procedure of achieving good governance. Apparently, Korea has made progress in developing democracy, as well as

    Quality Criteria for Measuring Authenticity, Reliability, Integrity and Usability of Records

    Seol, Moon-won | 2005, (11) | pp.41~90 | number of Cited : 14
    Abstract PDF
    Good records management is essential for good governance in modern democratic society. Though the records management institutions and policies in Korea were improved rapidly since the enactment of Public Records Management Act in 1999, the newly introduced records systems for administrative organizations including the New Electronic Data Management System(NEDMS) and Electronic Records Management Systems for Records Centers(ERMS/RC) have many problems in terms of ensuring the quality of records. The purpose of this study aimed to suggest quality criteria for measuring authenticity, reliability, integrity and usability of electronic records based on the international standards and guidelines such as ISO 15489, InterPARES project and BS ISO 15489 guidelines. The present study began with defining concepts and structure of records as evidence of activities. And it analysed four characteristics such as authenticity, reliability, integrity and usability of records by comparing various definitions in diplomatics and archival science literatures, and some projects reports. Finally it suggested the quality criteria for measuring authenticity, reliability, integrity and usability of records, and methods for maintaining them in each process of creation, maintenance and preservation.

    A Study on Appraisal in Electronic Records Environment

    김명훈 | 2005, (11) | pp.91~122 | number of Cited : 9
    Abstract PDF
    Appraisal is a basic archival function that analyzes values of records and determines the eventual disposal of records based upon their archival values. In electronic records environment, however, appraisal is different from traditional appraisal system that mainly is based on paper records. Since electronic records don't have physical entity and strongly depend on computer technologies, archivists fall into various dilemma in appraisal of electronic records. Moreover, because creation environment of electronic records is remarkably complex and diversified, appraisal of electronic records cannot be done until the later stages of the life cycle of the records. In Korea, appraisal system is founded on the Tables of Transaction for Records Scheduling through which disposal activities of all records are definite in a concrete form. However, there are little institutional infrastructures associated with appraisal of electronic records. Therefore this paper will intend to analyze characteristic features about appraisal of electronic records as a preliminary study for establishing appraisal system of electronic records in Korea. For this purpose, I have firstly compared creation environment of electronic records with traditional creation environment mainly based on paper records, and analyzed differences between appraisal of electronic records and traditional appraisal system based on paper records in view of recordness of electronic record. then I have examined functional appraisal that focuses on functions and activities in which the records are created and used, and discussed about main issues in relation to establishing appraisal system of electronic records.

    Records and History - the Relations of Records, Historical Material and Historical Theory in the Historical Narrative

    전명혁 | 2005, (11) | pp.123~143 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    In this essay I considered the relations of records and history, namely the process on the selection and choice from the records to the archives and the historical materials and in the process the role on the archivists and historians and difference and the relation of the facts and theory in the history. Archival science posits that an archives is the whole of the documents made or received in the course of purposeful activity, and of the relationships among those documents. Archival theory posits that it is the primary function of the archivists to maintain unbroken, continuing custody of societal archives, and to protect their integrity by keeping them physically and intellectually uncorrupted. The ultimate purpose of archival endeavors is to hand down to the next generations a reliable, trustworthy, and complete testimony of societal actions so that they can constitute sources of, and foundations for, future decision making.However, historical science searches for the truth in the historical facts, explains the cause and origin of the matters and reflects on th knowledge about the why and how the events happened. And history is firmly rooted on the philosophy. The goal of historian is analysing the nature of meaning of past in the society and tracing up the change and process of the transition. Archival science means historical source studies and other related disciplines. On the other hand archival management is the principle of respect for original order and the importance of original forms and conditions. Thus the relations between archival science and archives management are not one-sided but mutual. Archival science and historical studies, archivists and historians need to link more closely in order to hand down the contemporary memorial, the common memorial of mankind to the future.
