    Abstract PDF
    Digital records management is one whole system in which many social and technical elements are interacting. To maintain the trustworthiness, the repository needs periodical audit and certification. Thus, individual electronic records management agency needs toolkit that can be used to self-evaluate their trustworthiness continuously, and self-assess their atmosphere and system to recognize deficiencies. The purpose of this study is development of self-certification toolkit for repositories, which synthesized and analysed such four international standard and best practices as OAIS Reference Model(ISO 14721), TRAC, DRAMBORA, and the assessment report conducted and published by TNA/UKDA, as well as MoReq2 and current national laws and standards. As this paper describes and demonstrate the development process and the framework of this self-certification toolkit, other electronic records management agencies could follow the process and develop their own toolkit reflecting their situation, and utilize the self-assessment results in-house. As a result of this research, 12 areas for assessment were set, which include (organizational) operation management, classification system and master data management, acquisition, registration and description, storage and preservation, disposal, services, providing finding aids, system management, access control and security, monitoring/audit trail/statistics, and risk management. In each 12 area, the process map or functional charts were drawn and business functions were analyzed, and 54 'evaluation criteria', consisted of main business functional unit in each area were drawn. Under each 'evaluation criteria', 208 'specific evaluation criteria', which supposed to be implementable, measurable, and provable for self-evaluation in each area, were drawn. The audit and certification toolkit developed by this research could be used by digital repositories to conduct periodical self-assessment of the organization, which would be used to supplement any found deficiencies and be used to reflect the organizational development strategy.

    A Verification Strategy for the Origin of Electronic Records

    Byoungho Song | 2010, (25) | pp.47~89 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    The target of managing electronic records should be the trusted record services to the end-users. The natural characteristics of electronic records yields the drawback in the authenticity aspect and in the integrity aspect, and current standards and methodologies have beed developed to treat this drawback. However the authenticity and the integrity concepts is hardly separated each other and too completed, so alternative "source" concept is introduced and a verification strategy for the origin of electronic records is discussed in this paper. According to this concept, current standards and methodologies may be criticized for the negligence of necessary information organizing/verification, the doubtful long-term verification, and the missing counter-strategy for the verification-failed records. To solve this, needed facters for origin verification is described, new preservation format divided into temporally-fluctuating (variable) part and immutable (fixed) part is proposed, and a strategy to prevent, avoidance, and detection/recovery important records is suggested.

    A Study on Data Adjustment and Quality Enhancement Method for Public Administrative Dataset Records in the Transfer Process - Based on the Experiences of Datawarehouses' ETT

    Yim, Jin-Hee , 조은희 | 2010, (25) | pp.91~129 | number of Cited : 13
    Abstract PDF
    As it grows more heavily reliant on information system, researchers seek for various ways to manage and utilize of dataset records which is accumulated in public information system. It might be needed to adjust date and enhance the quality of public administrative dataset records during transferring to archive system or sharing server. The purpose of this paper is presenting data adjustment and quality enhancement methods for public administrative dataset records, and it refers to ETT procedure and method of construction of datawarehouses. It suggests seven typical examples and processing method of data adjustment and quality enhancement, which are (1) verification of quantity and data domain (2) code conversion for a consistent code value (3) making component with combinded information (4) making a decision of precision of date data (5) standardization of data (6) comment information about code value (7) capturing of metadata. It should be reviewed during dataset record transfer. This paper made Data adjustment and quality enhancement requirements for dataset record transfer, and it could be used as data quality requirement of administrative information system which produces dataset.

    A Study on the Legislation of 'The Records Management Innovation Road-map'

    Park, Mi-ae | 2010, (25) | pp.132~196 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    The Records Management Act was established by the result of the National Archive reformism in 1999. However, it could not have brought high-quality changes of recording management since recording management innovation was not continuously achieved. On the other hand, in 2006 the Records Management Act was completely revised as a part of recording management innovation. The records management innovation road map is created as an agenda in order to accommodate difficulties we face in the process of the records management reformism and to establish a norm in accord with international standards, a redesign of records management process and a development of records management system so that it can react quickly to rapidly changing situations on records management paradigms. The organization of the Records Management Act was revised by compensating the defect and applying in international standards. This is due to the fact that it is the highest priority assignment to be able to help promote those sorts of innovation to provide an institutional strategy. 'The National Records Management Advancement Strategy' of National Archives in 2009 seems to be an extension of the recording management Innovation road map. Nonetheless, this strategy cannot be considered a strategy of the consecutive national records management reform since it reflects the basis of the existing policy without any assessment with respect to the records management innovation. Government-level talks on records management innovation should be regarded so as to establish a national policy on records management and to be consistent in carrying out the policy. This research focuses on how the records management innovation road map is reflected in the Records Management Act in 2006 and how international standards are applied in the act in the national records management regime and current records management system. Furthermore, several challenges will be illustrated to overcome a limit of the Records Management Act in the process.

    A Study on freedom of information in the Government 2.0 era

    Kim Youseung | 2010, (25) | pp.197~232 | number of Cited : 15
    Abstract PDF
    The concept of Government 2.0 is spreading rapidly in many countries and is fundamentally changing existing freedom of information system which has passively responded to information demands. This study aims at discussing possible strategies for a new freedom of information system that is based on the Government 2.0 notion which presents revolutional approaches to public sector information's creation, management, and usage. For the purpose of the study, precedence studies and researches about both freedom of information system and Government 2.0 are analyzed. Furthermore, mutual relationships between them are discussed. Through this discussion, social and economic benefits from freedom of information systems which are based on Government 2.0 are explored. As a case study, services in the US, the UK, and Australia which are recognised as a feasible plan to set up Government 2.0 are analyzed. Their three common characteristics― revaluating public sector information's reuse, establishing exclusive agencies, and providing raw data―are discussed. Then, various mashup services which use services' raw data are also studied. Issues related to the freedom of information system in South Korea are examined. As a result, a policy framework for establishing Government 2.0 based freedom of Information system is discussed in terms of three aspects, law, technology and organization.
