    Kim Youseung | 2019, (62) | pp.5~39 | number of Cited : 5
    Abstract PDF
    The study aims to explore the alternatives through case analysis in the UK, which is quickly responding with appraisal policies and guidelines appropriate to the digital age. Through a theoretical study, it was confirmed that the concept of appraisal in the digital age was extended to decisions on which records to be created and acquired, and in this context, that the value of records needed to be determined at the earliest point in their life cycle. Furthermore, the advantages of macro-appraisal methods and the inevitability of expanding appraisal groups were outlined. Based on this discussion, the change in the British public record appraisal policy was discussed from a policy perspective, and the current British public record appraisal system was analyzed. Based on the analysis of various policy statements and guidelines, general appraisal criteria, 60 operation selection policies and appraisal processes were discussed. As a conclusion, this study discusses various alternatives to appraisal policies in the digital age.

    Seol, Moon-won , Park, In-seon | 2019, (62) | pp.41~75 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Although we expect the Records Freezing system to be introduced through the revision of the Public Records Management Act, the system alone has limitations in preventing illegal disposal of records. If some records have already been destroyed illegally, the agency should identify the reason and prepare corrective action and improvement measures to prevent the repetition of such a wrongful disposal. The purpose of this study is to analyze the NARA’s inspection program for unauthorized disposal based on the “Records Management Oversight and Reporting Program” and to find implications for improving the control system of public records disposal. NARA’s program is particularly effective in the prevention and post-processing of unauthorized disposal. In this study, firstly, the federal records management oversight and reporting program in the United States was investigated in the legal system. Secondly, the status of NARA’s control of unauthorized disposal cases was reviewed and a case of SEC’s MUI records was analyzed for showing the systematic procedure of NARA’s inspection. Finally, we have summed up the implications of this program for improving NAK’s control system of illegal disposal of public records.

    Shin, Won Boo , Byungjoo Chu , Lim, Sin Young | 2019, (62) | pp.77~107 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    There have been constant requests for urgently recruiting professionals in the archives to establish archival management systems by reflecting public institutional feature as well as reinforcing expertise and independence of them. However, it is true that some even adequate professional manpower haven’t been secured at each level of public institutions due to ambiguous standards for the placement of professionals in the field of records management followed by the current [Public Records Management Act]. Thereupon, this study is to create records management task model for the archival management institutions with the workload of records management induced by the model, and to present reasonable scale of workforce to deal with the assignment. Moreover, here is shown which professional staff should be allocated for better efficiency and systems to carry out the task of records management in each relevant institution.

    A Case Study on Nara Repository’s Archival Culture Programs and Developmental Directions

    Kim, Mi Jeoung | 2019, (62) | pp.109~138 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Since the opening of the Nara Archives in 2008, we have been operating the Archival Culture Programs. Before the Presidential Archive’s relocation to Sejong, the Presidential Archives and the Nara Archives jointly operated the Archival Culture Programs. The Archival Culture Programs is operated not only by the National Archives, but also by Administration Archives, History Archives, and Presidential Archives. The operation frequency, planning, and composition are slightly different depending on the institution. Here, I would like to find out the current status of Programs composition and contents operated by Seongnam Nara Archives, and suggest the direction of the Archival Cultural Programs of the archive that should be pursued in the future based on the analysis of the existing operation status.

    Abstract PDF
    Today, the archives strive to move towards more open and hospitable spaces for its users and to provide differentiated services based on detailed user needs and behavior for their own survival and development. Building services for children is especially vital in changing public awareness and expanding the customer base. Therefore this study aims to present fundamental data required for improving exhibit services by understanding children users’ perceptions and needs. For such purposes, this study examines the cases of both domestic and overseas exhibit services of presidential archives. Also, the study included the surveys of children and parents who have accompanied children visiting the presidential archive and experiencing the exhibit services. This study is meaningful in that it conducted the evaluation of archival exhibit services in the perspective of the children users. In addition, the analysis of children’s satisfactions and needs can contribute to the spread of archival culture and the revitalization of children users’ visitations.

    The Facets of Photographic Records on Korea in Modern Era

    Ju-Seok Park | 2019, (62) | pp.225~258 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Since the opening of Joseon in 1876, the photographic records of the late Joseon Dynasty and the period of the Korean Empire exist more than expected, considering the technological level and the social situations at that time. Photographs related to Korea can be distributed in various forms, such as illustrations of books printed to introduce Korea to Western society, plates of graphic journalism like newspapers or magazines, vintage prints, photo-postcards, stereo-photographs, card-type photographs, and lantern slides. There are still a great deal left in various archives of the Europe, America, Japan and Korea. According to related researchers, Korean-related photographs taken between 1863 and 1910, since Koreans were first photographed, were at least 3,000 to 4,000 cuts and the photo postcards issued was 25,000. It is said that most of them exist. This paper categorizes two ways of producing and distributing photographic records related to Korea, which were early modern times. The subjects of the photographs are clearly Korea or Koreans, but most of the producers of these photographs were Westerners and Japanese, who were imperial servants of imperialism. In the case of photography, there is a great possibility of distortion of the facts depending on the needs or perspectives of the producers. In order to correct the distortion, not only the contents of the photograph but also the intention of the producer, the production and the communication status should be grasped. This is because the problem of reading photograph records accurately and fairly in an age where there is no real experience is the cornerstone for understanding modern Korea correctly and broadly studying the Modern History of Korea.
