    Abstract PDF
    Trust in government agencies is closely related to accountability. The key strategy to increase public accountability is to document the processes and outcomes of their key tasks and policies adequately. The purpose of this study is to suggest a redesign of the records appraisal policy to enhance the accountability of government agencies. Applying the newly introduced concept of appraisal in ISO 15489-1: 2016, the relationship between accountability and appraisal is articulated and the problems of records appraisal systems in terms of accountability are analyzed. Based on this analysis, it suggests the principles for reforming the appraisal policies well as the redesign of the current disposition authorities as a key tool for appraisal, and the introduction of records disposal freeze system.

    A Study on the Records Management for the National Assembly Members

    Kim Janghwan | 2018, (55) | pp.39~71 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to examine the reality of the records management of the National Assembly members and suggest a desirable alternative. Until the Public Records Management Act was enacted in 1999, the level of the records management in the National Assembly was not beyond that of the document management in both the administration and the legislature. Rather, the National Assembly has maintained a records management tradition that systematically manages the minutes and bills since the Constitutional Assembly. After the Act was legislated in 2000, the National Assembly Records Management Regulation was enacted and enforced, and the Archives was established in the form of a subsidiary organ of the Secretariat of the National Assembly, even though its establishment is not obligatory. In addition, for the first time, an archivist was assigned as a records and archives researcher in Korea, whose role is to respond quickly in accordance with the records schedule of the National Assembly, making its service faster than that of the administration. However, the power of the records management of the National Assembly Archives at the time of the Secretariat of the National Assembly was greatly reduced, so the revision of the regulations in accordance with the revised Act in 2007 was not completed until 2011. In the case of the National Assembly, the direct influence of the executive branch was insignificant. As the National Assembly had little direct influence on the administration, it had little positive influence on records management innovation under Roh Moo-Hyun Administration. Even within the National Assembly, the records management observed by its members is insignificant both in practice and in theory. As the National Assembly members are excluded from the Act, there is no legal basis to enforce a records management method upon them. In this study, we analyze the records management problem of the National Assembly members, which mainly concerns the National Assembly records management plan established in the National Archives. Moreover, this study proposes three kinds of records management methods for the National Assembly members, namely, the legislation and revision of regulations, the records management consulting of the National Assembly members, and the transfer of the dataset of administrative information systems and websites.

    A Study on the Characteristics and Value of Andy Warhol’s Archive, <Time Capsule>

    Lee, Hyerin , Ju-Seok Park | 2018, (55) | pp.73~96 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Andy Warhol’s “Time Capsule” is an individual’s daily record, but it can also be evaluated as an artwork. Andy Warhol kept most of his items in boxes until his death in 1974. Warhol’s personal records contained receipts, invitations, memos, letters, voice tapes, newspapers, magazines, fan letters, mails, and exhibit materials. Andy Warhol’s act of collecting items was continuous and repetitive, giving others a deeper insight into the artist’s life. Warhol constantly recorded daily repetitive behaviors such as the people he met, a list of books he bought, and movies he had watched as a record producer. In addition, occasionally, he was in the position of an archivist, collecting and organizing others’ records. As such, he expressed his passion for recording his surroundings. His intentionally produced or collected records contain valuable information, not only of himself but also of the people surrounding him. His personal records show that it is the material that enables people to understand and appreciate his relationship with contemporary artists, as well as the artist’s education and the conditions during his time.

    A Study on Strategic Management Model of National Defense Records Centers

    Kang, Jin Young | 2018, (55) | pp.97~133 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    A total of 133 defense records centers exist in the country, and checking their common problems, as well as the inherent problems and strategies of individual archives, is necessary to solve them. The Strategic Management Model of the defense records centers is a tool developed to check the archives’ operational problems and solve them strategically. The researchers tried to help the military records centers in checking the problems and obtaining the strategic judgment of the commander to improve their work process. This study proposes the use of the model in individual defense records centers that establish midand long-term development plans with policy agencies, such as the Ministry of National Defense, to establish a records management policy and improve the said records centers. Based on literature studies, 67 items were developed in seven areas, reflecting the characteristics of experts’ verification, statistical analysis, and defense records centers. This study also proposes the improvement of the records centers’ strategy by citing cases that exhibit the use of the strategic operation model by the Ministry of National Defense.

    A Preliminary Study on Business Archives in Korea

    Nam, Jaewoo , Kim Janghwan | 2018, (55) | pp.135~163 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    Business is the key component of a capitalist system, and, recently, archives management in businesses has been emphasized to secure the transparency of business administration. However, until now, almost 20 years since archival studies were introduced in South Korea, there is a noticeably low interest in archives management. Archival studies in academic circles are still insufficient, and the level of archives management in the field of business practices is very low. For example, no academic discussions have been conducted on the concept and characteristics of business archives, as well as the suitability of the use of such terms. Thus, this study aims to prepare the basic foothold of business archives management studies in the future, examining the concept of “business archives.” For this purpose, this study would diagnose the present situations and help readers understand theoretical discussions by introducing actual cases of business archives management.

    Kim Iek Han | 2018, (55) | pp.165~208 | number of Cited : 8
    Abstract PDF
    This paper will address why records management innovation needs to be considered and sought again in 2017 when Korea’s new government was inaugurated, and it suggests the direction and strategies of the innovation. Now is time to inherit the innovative spirit of Roh’s Participatory Government based on new methods and contents with immanent criticism. This paper proposes the innovation for the “records management by everyone,” where everyone involved needs to participate in and proceed with the innovation for the sake of democracy. Not just government offices but also corporations and even ordinary people need to participate in the process of records management and share the results. Records management is necessary and required in places where democracy is practiced, where historical events occur, and where technologies are continuously innovated around the world. This paper proposes 12 strategies and 35 tasks in 6 sectors where records management is required at present. In addition, it also suggests a methodological innovation for using the latest technologies, communicating with every entity, and governing decision-making.

    Utilization of Archives in Research on Modern Korean History : Centered on the 1970s

    kwak geon hong | 2018, (55) | pp.209~233 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This article analyzes the cited archives in the research on modern Korean history in the 1970s. The research contains the condition of the citation and the categorization of cited archives by types and topics. The utilization of the archives was insufficient among the entire records, and the citation method was inconsistent. An analysis of archives utilization related to research on modern history should be systematic. The archives should build a database according to archival appraisal and selection, records collection, and archives recollection. Providing the records for the research on modern Korean history is also necessary.

    A study of Establishment and Acquisition for Disaster Collections on The National September 11 Memorial & Museum

    Jung, Hye-ji , Seunghwi Lee | 2018, (55) | pp.235~273 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    The National September 11 Memorial is the institution that collects, assesses, arranges, uses, exhibits, and preserves collections related to the terror attack on September 11, 2001 (9/11), and the explosion incident at the World Trade Center (WTC) on February 26, 1996. After the 9/11 incident, various groups, including the LMDC and the PANYNJ, have participated in the establishment of this organization. Since its initial establishment, the necessity for memorial institutions and detailed characteristics had been discussed in meetings to gather citizens’ opinions. Furthermore, the enactment of the 9/11 Memorial Act has secured the institution’s stable operation and management. To properly manage disaster-related collections, a just agreement among the citizens and the government should be made to arrive at rational decision-making. This instution can provide answers regarding those ways. Moreover, managing disaster-related collections should be discussed as an important means of remembering, preserving memories, educating, revealing the truth, and preparing academic information and sources. As a result, collaborative governance in records management after a disaster is expected.

    A Study on the Improvement Legal System for Next-generation Records Management

    LEE JINRYONG , Ju Hyun Mi , YIM JIN HEE | 2018, (55) | pp.275~305 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    The advent of e-government following the information revolution has affected public records systems. Records management should now be changed into an environment for establishing a national records management system based on the Internet of things (IoT), cloud, big data, and mobile (ICBM), and it is time to make a fresh start toward a next-generation records management system that responds to changes in the environment. Ultimately, it is time for a records management system that ensures a proper way of dealing with new environmental changes. It has been nearly 20 years since the Public Records Management Act was enacted in 1999, and its complete amendment was made in 2006 so that electronic records could be efficiently managed. When recompliance management needs to be rechecked, a full redesign is required to enable the current legal system to respond to the new circumstances in the present day. Therefore, this study is intended to suggest ways to improve the new records management legal system as the environment changes over the next generation and lay the legal groundwork for innovation in the national records management system.

    A Study on the Open Meeting System : Focused on the Central Administrative Organization Designated Meeting

    Choi, Jeong-Min , Kim Youseung | 2018, (55) | pp.307~334 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    This study analyzes the status of the designated administrative meetings of the central administrative agencies, including the number of meetings, the presence of written minutes, and the form of minutes. The implications based on the analysis are as follows. First, there were meetings that were not held, and written meetings were held. The standards for determining the designated meetings should be established. Second, when only a written meeting was held, the minutes were not made because these were not written separately. A written meeting can be held, if it is necessary. However, there is still a need to keep a detailed record similar to minutes in such cases. Third, among the minute types, a written record of the points of the meeting is preferred. Even if the meeting is closed for proper reasons, making a transcript and a record in addition to writing the points must be settled. Finally, specific standards for the procedures and reasons why meetings and minutes should be closed should be established. It is necessary to change the paradigm from the viewpoint of production and management to the viewpoint of disclosure and sharing through the improvement of standards and procedures related to designated meetings and designated meeting minutes.
