    Kim Myoung-hun | 2021, (68) | pp.5~39 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    In this study, the origin of the record continuum theory was analyzed in conjunction with the record management situation in Australia after the mid-20th century and record lifecycle model. For an in-depth understanding of the record continuum theory, it is necessary to consider the background and process of its formation, and to analyze the lifecycle model itself in terms of a theoretical system built with reflections on the lifecycle model. To this end, first of all, with the aim of analyzing the historical background of the formation of the record continuum theory, the background and process that led to intensive illumination of the US lifecycle model in the process of seeking an independent public records management system in Australia in the 1950s were reviewed. Then, the meaning and limitations of the lifecycle model were considered along with the background of the formation. In order to examine the main contents, significance, and limitations of the lifecycle model, it is necessary to analyze the circumstances under which it was formed. Based on this analysis, finally, the problems associated with the application of the lifecycle model in Australia’s new record creation environment, as well as the factors that were the origin of the newly born record continuum theory were examined.

    Abstract PDF
    In order to analyze big data, documents should be converted to a open standard format to increase machine readability. It also need natural language processing tools. This study focused on the background of intelligent document processing and the status of research in the public sector, and predicted the changes in work that intelligent document processing would bring. This study noted the changes that intelligent document processing would bring to the archival work, and also considered changes in the role of archivist and their required competencies. Changes in archival work could be anticipated across a wide range of Records Management work and Archives Management work. In particular, it was expected to have a significant impact on the automation of repetitive archival tasks or the description and utilization of records. This study proposed the need to prepare new archival work procedures, methods, and necessary competencies in response to these change in archival work.

    A Study on the Current State and Improvement Plans for the Information Disclosure System of Metropolitan Police Agencies : Focusing on Busan Metropolitan Police Agency

    Hyunjung Kim , Kim Soojung | 2021, (68) | pp.73~105 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The aim of this study was to investigate the current state of operation of information disclosure system in Busan Metropolitan Police Agency and to suggest recommendations for improvement. To achieve this goal, this study quantitatively analyzed the data on information disclosure claims (2010~2020.6), appeal cases (2010~2020.6), the disclosure rate of original documents (2014~2019) and so on. Furthermore, it examined how and how much information is announced in advance through the agency’s homepage and the information disclosure portal site. Results show that the agency has various problems regarding information disclosure including the high rate of transferring information to other institutions, the low disclosure rate of original documents, the high rate of information released publicly only after an administrative appeal, a small number of information announced in advance, and a not user-friendly website. To solve these problems, this study proposes providing accurate information about the scope of information the agency and other related institutions own, expanding the disclosure of original documents, discovering more information to announce in advance, and enhancing the usability of the website.

    Things unknown before being recorded

    Lee, Kyung-Hee , Kim Iek Han | 2021, (68) | pp.107~150 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Representation of an entity starts with recognition of its existence, and recording is mutually circular in that it acts as a means to enable the recognition of the existence. No record is left on an unrecognized entity, record is distorted if any, and the distorted reproduction represents the entity, reinforcing its invisibility. Spivak describes those who cannot speak on their own and cannot be represented as subaltern. This paper examines public record, the media and research records of female restaurant workers, identifies the subaltern characteristics and limitations of their records, and suggests the points to be considered and specific roles required for recording the subalterns. If it is possible to increase the possibility of representation by completely recording a person as an entity that contains the times and society, the accountability of the record to provide an account will extend beyond institutions to the times and society, and individuals and community will be established as political subjects.

    A Study on ‘the Ecological Archive’ in the Anthropocene

    Lee, Kyong Rae | 2021, (68) | pp.205~241 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This article explores how to incorporate the topic of the global environmental crisis called the “anthropocene” into archives studies and connect it to ecological practical reasons. In order to encourage discussion of archival studies, which puts the environmental crisis at a kind of archive constant value, this study seeks to examine the possibility of a quality shift in archival studies based on ecology. This article aims to go beyond the pragmatism of preparing improvements to eco-friendly record management, which is recently claimed by the “Green Archive” in Western archival studies. It calls for a new concept called ‘ecological archive’, which theoretically combines a more archives-based and ecological paradigm, and its epistemological transformation. Specifically, the ecological approach of archives is first discovered in the discussion of archival studies and at the same time, through the “ecological turn” of archives emphasized by recent anthropocene discourses, the concept of “ecological archive” emphasized by this article is embodied. This study uses ‘ecological archive’ as a universal and theoretical framework for archives as a basic concept for building ecological ‘living’ archives. In other words, for the construction of ecological archives, we reinterpret and extend so-called democratic values for archives, i.e., post-custodianship, community archives, and archives of emotions. Finally, the records of foot-and-mouth disease killing burial sites, an important site and example of the anthropocene tragedy, exemplifies the methodology of the actual application of ecological living archives. The case analysis aims to seek a new qualitative shift in record management that adapts to global ecological transformation, while also emphasizing the documentation by archival activism in ecological field practices jointly organized by archivists and citizens.

    A Pre-study on Roh Hoe-chan Archives

    Ju, Hyun Mi | 2021, (68) | pp.243~279 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Rep. Roh Hoe-chan is a representative politician in Korean progressive politics. From the labor movement to the workers’ political organization movement, they devoted themselves to the movement to build a progressive party. As a member of the 17th, 19th, and 20th National Assembly, he carried out legislative activities. The record he left is the record of the political power of workers, the record of the progressive party, and the record of a politician who suffers and practices. Also, as the son of a displaced person, as a student activist suffering from the restoration period, it is also a record of a human being of cultural literacy who played the cello. Archivist’s basic research is expected to play a role in creating a virtuous cycle of archive management by structuring the archive and presenting various access points to various users, allowing more diverse research and use in the future.
