    Min-Ji Jo , Lee, Young Nam | 2017, (53) | pp.5~43 | number of Cited : 6
    Abstract PDF
    This article adapts the democratic approach to the National Archives System. We must now search for a new archival landscape. Authors are agreeing that democracy is a basic principle for the new national archives model. This research looks into the direction of reform of the national record organizations in terms of individuality, integrity, and professionalism. It is, the fact that there are discussions rising on the need to reform the national records organization in the recent perspective of democracy. Democracy is a system that takes responsibility of even the results. This article describes all the discussions on what the best model for national archives system could be. In this social regulation, the archives carry out a noble mission of accountability. The discussion that suggests a clear perspective of democracy must be taken in to notice. Authors try to represent the voices of records managers. They also argue that records managers are the common wealth for our society. The national archives system is now the signature for the moral identity of national ruling powers. We argue that the new archives model should be derived from the point of the Candle Revolution.

    Documenting Contemporary ‘Counter-memories’: Focused on the Yongsan Tragedy

    Lee, Kyong Rae , Lee, Kwang Suk | 2017, (53) | pp.45~77 | number of Cited : 14
    Abstract PDF
    This study intends to rehabilitate the memories of the social other which have been gradually forgotten in the social events overloaded with the undemocratic violence in South Korea today. This study explores a case of Yongsan Tragedy in 2009 among the most tragic events. It notes the autonomous ways in which activist artists would like to memorize the socio-historical events anew despite the emptiness of public records. In other words, this study considers the Yongsan case to be significant that a group of the public, artists, grassroots activists, religion men got together in solidarity so as to create the contested narratives countering dominant memories and thus to signify the records written by the civil society. Among others, activist artists had documented the unofficial counter-memories of socially alienated peoples in terms of planning a series of artistic events such as opening some gallery exhibitions and performance events, issuing a volume of work books, comics and photographies, online broadcasting, and directing some documentaries. Especially, this paper tends to note the documentation of on-site activist artists to record the counter-memories against social oblivion. By doing so, it finally suggests how we could document the Yongsan Tragedy both to search out the archival implications of today’s art activism and to insert those artistic records into the commonly shared counter-memories in a more inclusive way.

    The Nature of Personal Papers and Documentation Strategies for Personal Archives

    Oh, Myungjin | 2017, (53) | pp.79~117 | number of Cited : 7
    Abstract PDF
    Personal records have both general characteristics as “records” and unique characteristics granted by the context of “personal.” This study was conceived by a need to focus on those unique characteristics of personal records and examine them specifically to determine various methods for personal records management. In an effort to identify the characteristics of personal records, the study made an attempt at two different approaches. First, it examined the unique characteristics of personal records that were approachable in the production context of personal records and the process of records management with a focus on the ISO 15489: 2016 standard, which offers the most fundamental principles of records management, and the literature researches on personal records. It then reviewed theories related to “personality,” one of man's unique traits, and its applicability to personal records management. In addition, the investigator examined personal characteristics with a focus on personality in the group of actual personal records housed at records management agencies in the nation and checked their influences on records management. The unique characteristics of personal records should be the base of understanding of and strategies for objects to be collected in the documentation activities. That first requires efforts to discover the characteristics of personal records across diverse dimensions, and it should be employed as the core of documentation strategies for personal records.

    Jang Hyo Jeong , Kim Soojung | 2017, (53) | pp.161~200 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This study aims to examine the current status of school archives and suggest improvements. To do that, in-depth interviews were conducted with seven principals of schools in J city, which participated in the School Archives Project initiated by 'J' Office of Education, and a record manager in charge of the project. The interviews consist of four parts: 1) perceptions about the overall project, 2) acquisition of historical manuscripts of the schools, 3) arrangement and preservation of the historical manuscripts, and 4) services in the school archives. The results found that the principals had difficulties in managing the archives by themselves and requested continual financial and human resource support from the J Office of Education. This study suggests the future direction of the School Archives Project as well as recommendations for improving the current status of manuscript management in the schools.

    A Study on the Functional Design of Classification Management System of Public Organizations

    Oh, Jin Kwan | 2017, (53) | pp.201~228 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    Recently, public organizations have been improving the classification in order to introduce records management reference table in accordance with the act on the management of public archives. However, there is no system to mount the revised records management reference table, and there is a problem in usability. The purpose of this study is to design a system function to manage the classification which is the foundation of records management for public organizations. In order to design the function, interviews with the records management specialists of the five public organizations were conducted. Based on this, we have designed a multi-classification system registration function, a hierarchical structure setting function of records, and a record management standard management function.

    A Study on Current Status and Improvement Tasks of Records Classification in Government-funded Research Institutes

    Miyoung Lee | 2017, (53) | pp.229~259 | number of Cited : 5
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to find out the level of the classification system of the government-funded research institutes and to search the future direction of the classification scheme of these research institutes. As a result of analyzing the classification system and regulations of the 23 government-funded research institutes, it is found that the regulations of the records management of most institutions are basically based on other regulations before Public Records Act. In addition, there are not many institutions in which the record production system that reflects the Public Records Act is introduced, and the production and classification of the records are performed separately, and the classification scheme in which the organization classification and the functional classification are mixed is often used only as a reference tool for setting retention period. To overcome this situation, it is necessary to improve the regulation, classification scheme and system. The revision of the law at the national level and establishment of records management regulations at the institutional level should be made. A special classification scheme for 'research' which is a core function of the research institute should be designed and this classification scheme must be applied from the registration stage of records. The fact that the record management obligation is ignored and the production records are not properly managed is to deny the value of the research field records by themselves. I hope that the records management of government-funded research institutes will be moved in place as soon as possible and practical issues will be communicated to academia and good ideas for better development will be returned to the field of practice.
