    Kim, Song-yi , Young Hak LEE | 2017, (51) | pp.5~44 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    The institution, which was temporarily run, has not registered and has neglected records due to its temporality. In this regard, many related experts have pointed out their risk of loss. Therefore, the objective of this study is to analyze the problems of the temporary institution’s records management system by investigating the current situation, and to suggest solutions, thereby arousing the necessity of managing the records produced by dissolved agencies. To specifically review this, first, this paper analyzes the records management system of abolished institutions, focusing on the working environment, related laws, and guidelines. Moreover, it indicates the problem with regard to the effectiveness of legal systems, the lack of professionalism and infrastructure for records management services in temporary agencies, and National Archives of Korea’s passive response. With regard to these problems, there are some solutions presented such as the complementation of related laws and guidelines, the strengthening of professionalism in relevant agencies in relation to managing records properly, and the establishment of cooperative networks between related institutions.

    Ju Hyun Mi , YIM JIN HEE | 2017, (51) | pp.45~87 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    In recent years, there were some who have conducted research on deriving the social and historical meanings of records through the analysis of specific records collections. This trend is an attempt to pay attention to human actions in the society and to read the society again through the records created by such actions. In this study, I derive various meanings and values of these records through the analysis of the “Laos Renewable Energy Support Activities” collection. Moreover, I study how the collection was reconstructed by the Human and Memory Archives. The “Laos Renewable Energy Support Activities” is the personal record of the donor who led the project, and contains the process and results of the project. Through this collection, I was able to look at the life of the donor as a foreign aid activist in Laos and realized his values. Furthermore, through the business process record, I was able to discover the implications of climate change response overseas aid projects. In addition, I was able to look at the culture and environment of Laos through the eyes of the donor who has been residing there for a long time.

    SONG NARA , Lee, Sung Min , Yong Kim and 1 other persons | 2017, (51) | pp.89~132 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    The presidential records reflect the era of the times, and it has valuable evidence to support the administrative transparency and accountability of government operations. People’s interest in the presidential records increased in response to its recent leak. The presidential archives were moved to Sejong in line with its desire to provide public-friendly services. This study will help users access the archives and utilize archiving information. The Ministry of Education introduced the free learning semester, which all middle schools have began conducting since 2016. The free learning semester provides an environment where education can be provided by external organizations. As middle school students are still unfamiliar with archives, the free learning semester provides a good environment for accessing archives and records. Although it serves as an opportunity to publicize archives, existing related studies are insufficient. This study aims to develop the free learning semester program using the presidential archives and records for middle school students during the free learning semester based on the analysis of the domestic and foreign archives education program. This study shows a development of the education program using presidential archives and records through literature research, domestic and foreign case analysis, and expert interview. First, through literature research, this research understood the definition of the free learning semester as well as its types. In addition, this research identified the four types of the free learning semester education program that can be linked to the presidential archives. Second, through website analysis and the information disclosure system, this research investigated domestic and foreign cases of the education program. A total of 46 education programs of institutions were analyzed, focusing on student-led education programs in the foreign archives as well as the education programs of the free learning semester in domestic libraries and archives. Third, based on these results, This study proposed four types of free learning semester education programs using the presidential archives and records, and provided concrete examples.

    Jung-eun Lee , Gang, Juyeon , KIMEUNSIL and 1 other persons | 2017, (51) | pp.133~173 | number of Cited : 6
    Abstract PDF
    The records and archives center provide a variety of archival information services in an effort to get closer to the public. However, there are still some problems with regard to the lack of awareness of records and archives. In order to activate the use of archives, it is necessary to understand the users of archives. Given the problems, this study aims to investigate the awareness of records and archives in university students who are potential users of archives as well as to suggest methods to activate the use of records and archives reflecting the characteristics of university students’ awareness. As such, this study surveyed 182 university students at J university. The questionnaire items referred to Market & Opinion Research International (MORI) (2003) as a part of the projects conducted by the Museums Libraries Archives Council (MLA) and Cho’s study (2008). The questionnaire items consisted of four major areas: awareness of records and archives, experience with records and archives or reasons of not using them, requirements for the use of archives by potential users, and efficient method of promoting archives. As a result of the survey, most of the university students are indifferent to records. However, they recognized that it is highly important to manage records that are related to historical values and archives that are relevant to information values. In addition, they showed a positive intention to use the archives in the future; thus, it is highly likely for them to be converted into active users through appropriate services. Based on the results, this study proposed important considerations for activating the use of the archives to university students, and suggested methods to activate the archives in terms of user education, program development, and user segmentation.

    A Preliminary Study on Event Archives

    LIM JI HOON , Hyo-Jung Oh , Kim Soojung | 2017, (51) | pp.175~208 | number of Cited : 7
    Abstract PDF
    This study aims to establish the definition of “event archive,” which collects and manages records that focus on a specific event, in order to present a new perspective onto the collection and management of private records. As such, this study defines “event archive” and then identifies its characteristics by comparing it with community archives and locality archives. An event archive consists of person, spatiality, and temporality. As it puts an emphasis on temporality in particular, this study suggests a spiral model, which grafts person and spatiality onto a time axis. Moreover, this study suggests three considerations for the construction of an event archive. First, it presents different construction methods for different types of event archives depending on the time an event occurred. Second, it suggests records collection and management areas considering the three components of an event archive—person, spatiality, and temporality. Third, it supports a digital archive for an event archive to become an open archive.

    Factors Influencing Awareness of Records Management on the Republic of Korea Army: Records Management Systems and Organizational Culture

    Kim, Taekyoun , GIYEONG KIM | 2017, (51) | pp.209~233 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    This paper aims to determine how the Republic of Korea Army (ROKA) records management system affects practitioners’ understanding of the importance of records management. The levels of awareness of records management, which is based on ISO 15489, are set as dependent variables, whereas the ROKA’s records management system factors are set as independent variables based on the standardized elements of ISO 30301 (Management System for Records). The relationship between these variables is then statistically examined using a sample (N = 251) surveyed with record management practitioners in the ROKA. The results show that operational factors had a positive effect only on the purposes and benefits of records management. Based on the results, it is suggested that the development of an expertise-based and value-oriented policy and education is necessary to improve practitioners’ understanding of record management.

    The Records and Archives as the Conceptual Constructs and Sunglihak World View of Joseon Dynasty

    Meung-Hoan Noh | 2017, (51) | pp.235~278 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    Then, why was the system so thorough and strict? How could that be possible? I approached this question by explaining the task of the Joseon Dynasty for the construction of a Confucian community based on Sunglihak. Sunglihak meant the metaphysics of human nature and universe order, or the rule of heaven. The people who opened the Joseon Dynasty aimed at constructing a Confucian community based on propriety as the principle of the society. The records and archives played an administrative function, for example, controlling royal power, as well as the role of constructing a national community identity based on Sunglihak. This kind of records and records management practices of the Joseon Dynasty can be seen as conceptual construction and conceptual constructs, although they were physical entities in reality. They reflected the Sunglihak value system as, in the words of Michel Focault, an “episteme” and played a social role based on it. In particular, I explained it in light of the constructivism of Sunglihak and the semiosis concept of Charles Sanders Peirce.

    Abstract PDF
    This study aims to identify issues with regard to practicing the current Korean Archives Law and, by doing so, to boost a community-wide discussion for revising it. Five researchers collaboratively interviewed five groups of stake-holders. Each group was consisted of practitioners in central government agencies, provincial governments, and educational district offices, as well as instructors of archival education programs. To uncover diverse issues from various perspectives, the interview was initiated by a common question: “Do you have any idea in terms of revising the current law?” After all interview sessions were completed, the researchers discussed among themselves and established a framework for analysis. The study is expected to provide a starting point for the Korean archival community to reinvent the law so that the archival culture and practice in Korea could open a new era.

    Methodological Research Trend Analysis of Records and Archives in Korea(1): Focused on Surveys and Experiments

    Soyeon Lee | 2017, (51) | pp.307~336 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    The present study aims at encouraging discussion on research paradigms as well as research methodologies of records and archives studies. Reviewing research paradigms, defined by Guba and Lincoln based on basic beliefs, leads to the suggestion that the discipline needs to reach to a certain degree of consensus on ontological, epistemological, and methodological premises in order to inform and guide future research. To make the argument, the present study reviews all research papers published in two major journals: the Korean Journal of Archival Studies and Journal of Korean Society of Archives and Records Management, from 2007 to 2016. It then identifies 80 research papers from positivistic research and reviews 32 papers, which collected data through surveys and experiments.

    A Study of the Appraisal and Selection of Labor Records: Focusing on the Agency of Employment and Labor

    kwak geon hong | 2017, (51) | pp.337~375 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    The Agency of Employment and Labor produces various records that are related to labor history subject while performing its functions such as labor supervision. Some valuable records were discarded even if they are worthy enough to be researched from a historical perspective. Thus, this article contributes to classifying the main subjects and the main agents of an action in view of macrohistory and microhistory. Some examples of the records that require prolonged preservation were also presented by each issue. Furthermore, this article proposes a dramatic improvement of the records schedule. It also presents other issues as the foundation of the valuation standard based on the subject including the conversion of the strategy of archival appraisal, and selection that combines the function and the subject.
