    Abstract PDF
    This study aims to propose a model for developing participatory laborarchives as locality ones. First, it proceeded the literature reviews andexpert interviews, so that revealed the needs for participations in buildinglabor archives, participating agents/agencies and the type of participation,especially in industrial labor archives. After examining domestic and foreignlabor archives, the way of participation was analysed. Based on theanalysis the model for developing participatory labor archives in terms ofthe principles, the procedure and the participation methods were proposed.

    Reformation of the Korea’s National Archiving System

    Lee seung Il | 2014, (41) | pp.39~73 | number of Cited : 11
    Abstract PDF
    This study aims to analyze the features and problems of the Korea’snational records archiving system established in 1999, as well as to suggestthe countermeasures. First, in Korea, permanent records are archived by the administration,legislature and judicature separately. However, around the world there arevery few cases where a national archives controls the records of theadministration alone, whereupon there is the need to set up an integratedarchiving system regarding the records of the administration, legislature andjudicature. Second, in Korea, the records archiving system leans too muchtowards the centrally-controlled system, which is urgent to be solved. ‘Record Management Act’ stipulates that all the public records, includingnonpermanent ones, shall be managed by National Archives, wherewithNational Archives is overburdened. Hereat, it may be desirable for NationalArchives to manage very important records that deserve to be archivedpermanently and for Record Center to archive other records, which needsto be made into law.

    A Study on the Appraisal of Research Records in Science and Technology : Focusing on Foreign Cases

    Miyoung Lee | 2014, (41) | pp.75~111 | number of Cited : 8
    Abstract PDF
    With the quantitative growth of research data, the issue of enormouspreservation cost and sharing expansion, the organizations should prioritizethe collections then select the data that are worthy of save. Therefore,today, it is important for the organizations to appraise the continuing valueof produced records. Considering the universities and the public institutions such as governmentfundedresearch institutes as the heavy producer of the data, it becomes arising problem for the records management that it does not go beyond theframework of “administrative records” and “public records”. In this study, I looked into the background of the contention that theresearch records must be managed in a different perspective and checkedthe characteristics of research records in therms of the producers, researchactivities and records. Based on this analysis, I suggested the main issuesand considerations about the subjects, criterias and methods in researchrecords appraisal.

    Semiotic Approaches to New Archival Methodology

    Lee, Young Nam , Min-Ji Jo | 2014, (41) | pp.113~173 | number of Cited : 9
    Abstract PDF
    For the past few years, there has been active seeking of archivalpractices outside of public institutions. For example, there is oral historyarchive which has an actual field of its own, community archive, archivesof everyday life, cultural resources archive, digital archive, and post-modernarchive with its discourse practical character. In this reading, such flow isorganized through everyday paradigm, and examines new archivalmethodology that is suitable for it. Through such critical mind, semiotic approach is taken and the need,direction and alternative of archival methodology is offered. Especially,archival methodology, which can be applied to archives is thoroughlyobserved. Also, the way how sign practices can be executed in the archivalfield is explained through specific examples. Of course, it is clearly stated that this is an instance, and that it is anarchival methodology that can be applied to public institutions. We hopethis would be a discuss that would enable a comprehensive understandingof records.

    The Establishment of Labor Archive and Its New Development Strategy : An Attempt to Build Participatory Archive of the Institute of Labor History in SKHU

    Chongkoo LEE , Lee Jae Seong | 2014, (41) | pp.175~212 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    In 2001 a large amount of labor record have been donated from JeontaeilLabor Archive-Institute to SungKongHoe University(SKHU). Institute of LaborHistory in SKHU was established in the wake of the installation of thelabor archive. Development of oral archive raised the awareness of thevarious relationships between the use and production of labor record. Interviewees of oral testimony expressed dissatisfaction and the role of theresearchers was not sufficiently exhibited. Examining the main cases of Korea union movement history, we canfind contradictions between the use and production of labor recordclearly. Interval of interpretation and memory was too big between theparties of ‘democratic’ union movement in the 1970s. While among theparties who took part in Guro Alliance Strike of 1985, there is a groupthat remains in the “winner” in history on the one hand, but “loser” on theother without any reasonable criterion. Active intervention of the recordusers(researchers) is very limited. Among citizens or workers how will beresolved such “struggle of memory” in due process can not be seen. Thisis one of the reasons why labor archive is not rooted in the region. In this paper, I present a methodological alternatives for the production and use of records through the construction of participatory labor archive. Further, the reconstituted contents of the “documenting locality” strategy bycomplementing the theoretical part of the method of participation. Thestudy of local and locality requires a “scale” dimension that will make upthe identity recognition space, a memory and identity, a social relationshiprather than the dimension of the physical space. Alternative “documentinglocality” strategy will be able to contribute to solve the problems that occurbetween the production and use of the recording in labor archive.

    Control of Records by the Residency-General and Japanese Invasion of Joseon

    Young Hak LEE | 2014, (41) | pp.213~259 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    This paper illustrates the process of Japanese invasion of Joseon. In theDecember of 1905, specifically, Japan established the Residency-General inorder to reform systems of government and to control records. Japan founded the Residency-General to reinforce the internal affairs ofJoseon. Then, they reorganized systems of government using Joseon’sbureaucracy system. The reorganization facilitated control of current andnon-current records. After all, this helped Japan to know the actualcircumstances of Joseon and the invasion of Joseon. To be specific, Japan organized the records at the Kyujanggak, animperial library of the Joseon Dynasty, for understanding historical recordsand dominated Joseon government’s current records for comprehendingvulnerability of Joseon. On the other hand, Japan invaded Joseon byjustifying their actions as ‘administration improvement’ and ‘reformation’. Here are the actual examples. First, the Residency-General dominatedthe Kyujanggak and reorganized historical records which were stored there. It lasted for two years and let Japan comprehend the course of Joseonhistory. Second, the Residency-General collected and arranged currentrecords of Joseon. It was buckled down in the August of 1910, when theGreat Han Empire collapsed. After the fall of the Great Han Empire, the Residency-General transferred government records from the JapaneseGovernment-General of Korea in order to understand the state of Joseon. Last, the Residency-General arranged records on both governmental and theImperial property, then most of them reverted to national property.
