    Despite the Public Records Management Act in effect for more than 10 years and the various achievements of 'Records management Innovation' made by the former government, records management in Korea still remains unsatisfactory in many fields. Especially one of the main concerns is about the records centers in the public offices failed to work efficiently. There remains lots of so-called ancient regime elements in the records center system, which causes the lack of stability. Divisions of general affairs in the public offices had played main role in records management for more than 50 years since the establishment of the government, and their role was limited to take over some records created and to manage the poor stack room. According to the Public Records Management Act revised in 2007, data center was renamed to records center and it was obliged to place records center under the office of planning management or the office of administration. But records centers have been nevertheless operated at a very formal level in most public offices. It is the real state of affairs that professional records management system interconnecting records office, records center and archives is not achieved. Why is it? This article is an answer to this question. This article attempt to find out on the inner causes such as structure of records center, records management profession, records management methodology, and above all historical background. In addition, it put stress on the necessity of definite separation between records office and records center and assurance of independent operation of records center for the normalization of the records management system. Improvement of methodology including records management process is also of great importance. And the standardization of records management business of the records center is suggested as one of the main tasks on the basis of the accumulation of 'best practices of records management' in the cooperation with the records management community.

    Abstract PDF
    Ecomuseum which appeared in France in 1968 and widely diffused over the world, is a new type of museum. The purpose of this museum is not to simply possess and exhibit the existing relics, but to discover the locational senses of a territory by in-situ conserving and interpreting its entire natural and cultural heritages, and to plan the participation of its population and the development of its local community. The significance of this museum can be found in the recovery of disappearing collective memories of a territory, the restoration of the cultural identity of its population and the revitalization of a underdeveloped area. As the majority of these museums are fragmented or open air museums, an 'web ecomuseum' which makes the remote offering of informations about whole dispersed heritages and their holistic interpretation possible by digitalizing, recording, conserving, interpreting and utilizing related heritages, is necessary. This paper considers the possibility of web ecomuseum and its constitution contents and methods through the case of Mountain Mudeung area. Especially, in relation to the latter, this paper suggests a plan which consists of selection of own local themes, construction of digital archives, design of web expositions and production of electronic cultural maps.
