    A Study on the User Acceptance and Change upon Exhibitions of National Archives

    Min-Ji Jo | 2018, (57) | pp.5~33 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    Records, especially the authentic records the nation secured, have an ontological feature of proof that is able to persuade the current present of the past present, and inherent in it is faith that originates from fundamental objectivity. Therefore the image of silence that such strictness of records creates realizes the detonation of specific memories through the act of visual exhibition. This research started from the notion that records achieve social vitality and return through its exhibition, as well as the critical awareness that it ‘re-mediate’ the past and memory through interactions with image. The reason for viewing the archival exhibition as the subject of user analyzation is that in the process where exhibition sorts and arranges records, it is the tool and mediation that most distinctly exposes the identity of the archives. Hence, this research first analyzes national archives, particularly the exhibition of “presidential” records, which is in the center of memory conflict, in the viewpoint of the cultural practice of memory. Afterwards, it discusses empirical research and results on how users accept and resist the meaning of the exhibition through actual surveys of users after their viewing of an exhibition.

    Jeongmin Choi , Kim Youseung | 2018, (57) | pp.35~73 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This study aims to elucidate the implications for 20 years of the establishment of the information disclosure law by analyzing contents of the public regulations of 50 states of the United States. For the purpose, it looks at the general outline of the open meetings law of the 50 states, including the requirements and procedure of the advance notification of the meeting, and the protest procedure and penalties for the violation of the law. As a result of analysis, under the law, public meetings should announce their schedule and agenda in advance, and minutes of meetings and recording of meetings should be accessible to citizens. Furthermore, a person who violates the law for opening meetings could be fined or imprisoned. The implications for the establishment of the Open Meetings Act in Korea are as follows: First, the open meeting system starts with the appropriate period and method of advance notice of meeting holding. Second, the substantive contents of the advance notification guarantee the effectiveness of the meeting disclosure system. Third, the method and subject of advance notification should be as wide and diverse as possible. Fourth, all decisions of the meeting that violate the law are null and void. Fifth, a system should be set up so that any citizen could easily raise objections to the violation of the law. Sixth, the person who violates the law should be held responsible. Lastly, citizen access to minutes, recordings as well as comprehensive meeting minutes writing including attendees, agendas, and ballots should be guaranteed.

    Analysis of Production Status of the 2017 Record

    Ji-Tae Park , Sungkyum Kim , Hwang, Jung-won | 2018, (57) | pp.113~136 | number of Cited : 3
    Abstract PDF
    Records management refers to a series of activities to achieve the goal of securing transparency in administration and safely preserving and utilizing records. Each process of record management is largely divided into production, preservation and management stage. The reporting system of record production has an important fuction that serves as a bridge between production stage and preservation and management stage. It was established after the enactment of the Act on Records Management of Public Agencies in 1999, to grasp the state of production and management of records of various organizations. Since then the National Archives of Korea(NAK) has been able to rather actively understand the situation of records and acquire them than simply collect them. The Act, which was revised in 2006, regulates electronically automated reporting methods in which the production reporting datas are generated in the record creation system and transferred to the record management system. Despite improvements in the system, electronic reporting methods are being used in part. The 713 public institutions have submitted reports of record production to the NAK in 2017, and this study analyses them of only 47 central administrative agencies, including departments, offices, agencies, and committees. Their reports have 15 forms which consist of production statistics and inventories of 7 types of records including general records, survey, research, review, minutes, shorthand, audiovisual records, secret records, government publications. This suggests implications for improving the reporting system of record production.

    The Records Managers and Archivists Interview of  Records Production Report

    Hwang, Jin-hyun | 2018, (57) | pp.137~163 | number of Cited : 5
    Abstract PDF
    Records management begins at the time of production of the record. Public institutions need control methods and policies to ensure that records are produced and managed properly. Korea introduced the Records production report from the point of time when the Public Records Management Act was enacted to control the records from the production date. However, the Records production report is not operating for that purpose, so records managers and archivists are raising uselessness. In addition, there are differences over whether to keep the system or not, even within the National Archives of Korea. Therefore, the reasons for the existence of this policy, problems in operation, and opinions on alternatives were summarized through interviews with records managers and archivists.

    Archival Symposium for Rethinking Archives

    Lee, Young Nam | 2018, (57) | pp.165~234 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    Archival symposium was a time when men thought thoroughly about what archives were, and to carefully record such thoughts. In the time of archival symposium, I observed the people archiving. To bring out a thought for a man was a physical action that moves his own desire, language, emotion and senses simultaneously. In philosophy thought is not merely a logical and cognitive act. Thought is a physical act that includes logical thinking, feeling, emotion, will, and on. When there is a emotional change in the body, an idea about that change forms. Emotional change acts as a force that increases, decreases, accelerate and hinder the body’s abilities. However, there were no suggestions for philosophical concepts from the start. Love is not taught by someone. At some point without oneself knowing we start love and really experience with our bodies what love is, and in this repeat love and undergo all these emotions. Would not the overall story of life be as such. It is different from building a car in a factory. When the archival symposium starts, we asked you to think about what archives are, and to record with such thoughts as reference. Archival symposium is still a proper noun. With the wish for it to become a general term, I report on the process and meaning of archival experiment that is the archival symposium.

    Functional Status and Development Direction of Standard Records Management System

    Yu, Young Moon | 2018, (57) | pp.235~279 | number of Cited : 6
    Abstract PDF
    Electronic records produced by central administrative agencies are transferred to the National Archives of Korea. In the absence of defects or errors in electronic records, it is a proof that the government’s electronic records management system is operating normally. Various problems have been found in this process, and there still remain problems to be solved. At the heart of it is a standard records management system, which has been continuously improved. In this paper, I introduce the functional improvement of the record management functions of the standard records management system. Among them, the important matters describe the background and reason for the improvement. In addition, the direction of development of the standard records management system was examined in terms of recognition conversion of recordkeepers, strengthen collaboration between recordkeepers and developers, improving records management metadata quality, linking related systems, automating records management, and IT environment change.
