    Affects in and of Archives : Focused on 4.16 Memory Storage

    Lee, Kyong Rae | 2022, (74) | pp.5~43 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This study aims to explore the ‘affective value’ of records. Traditionally, records have been evaluated as having evidence value, information value, and artificial value. However, the ‘affective turn’ in the humanities and social sciences, which began in the 1990s, calls for discussion on the affective value of records. The overseas archive academia is in full swing discussing the emotional value of records after the ‘affective turn’. However, there is no emotional discussion on records in the domestic archive academia. This study first conducts theoretical discussions to overcome these domestic limitations and explore the emotional value of archives in earnest. Following the theoretical discussion, a specific case will be dealt with next. As a representative storage of affect, which records the pain, sadness, and condolences of the domestic disaster era, this study investigates the record management case of the 4.16 Memory Storage. The Ferry Sewol disaster, which provided a dramatic opportunity to witness the unexpected ripple effect of affect in Korea, and the 4.16 Memory Storage as a recording activity, can be seen as a representative example of affective recording of the pain and sadness of survivors of the trauma incident. It will capture the differentiation of affet recording, which is different from the record management practice, and demonstrate empirically how this differentiation is implemented from collection to evaluation and service through the ‘4.16 Memory Storage’.

    The Counter-memory and a Historical Discourse of Reproduced Records in the Apartheid Period : Focusing on 『Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life』

    Lee, Hyerin | 2022, (74) | pp.45~78 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    South Africa implemented apartheid from 1948 to 1994. The main content of this policy was to classify races such as whites, Indians, mixed-race people, and blacks, and to limit all social activities, including residence, personal property ownership, and economic activities, depending on the class. All races except white people were discriminated against and suppressed for having different skin colors. South African citizens resisted the government’s indiscriminate violence, and public opinion criticizing them expanded beyond the local community to various parts of the world. One of the things that made this possible was photographs detailing the scene of the violence. Foreign journalists who captured popular oppression as well as photographers from South Africa were immersed in recording the lives of those who were marginalized and suffered on an individual level. If they had not been willing to inform the reality and did not actually record it as a photo, many people would not have known the horrors of the situation caused by racial discrimination. Therefore, this paper focuses on Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureau of Everyday Life, which captures various aspects of apartheid and displays related records, and examines the aspects of racism committed in South Africa described in the photo. The exhibition covers the period from 1948 when apartheid began until 1995, when Nelson Mandela was elected president and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission was launched to correct the wrong view of history. Many of the photos on display were taken by Peter Magubane, Ian Berry, David Goldblatt, and Santu Mofoken, a collection of museums, art galleries and media, including various archives. The photographs on display are primarily the work of photographers. It is both a photographic work and a media that proves South Africa’s past since the 1960s, but it has been mainly dealt with in the field of photography and art history rather than from a historical or archival point of view. However, the photos have characteristics as records, and the contextual information contained in them is characterized by being able to look back on history from various perspectives. Therefore, it is very important to expand in the previously studied area to examine the time from various perspectives and interpret it anew. The photographs presented in the exhibition prove and describe events and people that are not included in South Africa’s official records. This is significant in that it incorporates socially marginalized people and events into historical gaps through ordinary people’s memories and personal records, and is reproduced in various media to strengthen and spread the context of record production.

    A Study on Classification & Description of Art Archives : Focused on “The Art Archives, Seoul Museum of Art”

    Kim Ji Ah | 2022, (74) | pp.79~117 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    In recent years, the term “art archives” has become increasingly popular, with the growing use of archives in exhibitions and program planning within domestic cultural and arts institutions. The need for art archives has been raised for reasons such as establishing the identity of art and culture and providing basic resources for academic research; however, they are now being recognized as a direct resource and service for users. Accordingly, research has also been conducted on the values, policies, and management practices of art archives in the archiving field. Nevertheless, there is a lack of research on management methodologies that can be applied to institutions that manage art archives. In particular, for the efficient use of art archives, classification, organization, and systematic management of descriptive areas must be preceded. But, There are different methods of managing art archives depending on the type of collection, the management institution, and the characteristics of the collection resources, which, in turn, makes it difficult to apply a consistent methodology for classification and description. Based on actual cases from The Art Archives, Seoul Museum of Art, this study examined the types and categories of arts, and presented the establishment of a classification system and archival description rules.

    A Study on Application of Archival Information Services Based on Metaverse

    Kim, Hyunjin , YIM JIN HEE | 2022, (74) | pp.119~153 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Metaverse combines the real and virtual worlds to create a world where all experiences and activities in the real world are possible even in the virtual world without time and space constraints. Currently, metaverse technology is expanding and converging into the realms of society, economy, and culture. In particular, the MZ generation, the main user base, is engaged in various cultural activities such as games, contents, culture, exhibitions, and performances in the metaverse world. Archives, one of the cultural institutions, should provide a new type of service by fusion of Archival information services with metaverse technology so that the MZ generation can know the value and meaning of archives. This will arouse the interest of the MZ generation, which will naturally increase the awareness of the archives, increase visits and use, and will serve as an opportunity to expand the user base. Therefore, in this study, the concept, type, and characteristics of each service were examined, and the representative metaverse platform for each service was selected and a platform utilization plan suitable for Archival information services such as exhibition, experience, and publicity was proposed. In addition, by using ‘Spatial’, a blockchain- based social metaverse platform, to directly produce exhibition contents, we want to check the considerations suggested, the production process, and the advantages of the metaverse exhibition.

    Comparison of Web Crawler Performance for Web Record Management

    Chang Jinho , Kwon Hyuksang , Lee Kyumo and 1 other persons | 2022, (74) | pp.155~186 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    As of 2022, the number of Internet sites for public institutions registered on the ‘Government 24’ website ( of the Ministry of the Interior and Safety is 17,000. The direct transfer takes a lot of human and material resources and time between the records-producing institution and the records-management institution that manages websites as records. In addition, it is practically difficult for records management institutions to migrate and operate various software and application technologies required to run each website. A method of automatically collecting websites from a remote location using web crawler software is used domestically and abroad to overcome these practical limitations. This study compared the performance of the web crawler required to collect and manage public Internet websites as records remotely. The most suitable web crawler was selected through a step-by-step review of several web crawlers from previous studies and other literature. Several public agency websites were applied to compare the actual performance of the crawlers in the evaluation process. The study provides empirical and specific performance comparison information for organizations that need to choose a web crawler.

    A Study on the Improvement of Administrative Information Data Set Operation of Private Universities

    Kim, Hyunjung , Bea, Sung-Jung | 2022, (74) | pp.187~222 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The aim of this study was to analyze the operation status of administrative information datasets of private universities and present improvement plans. For the system of private universities, the generation, correction, and deletion of functions, development types, and data were analyzed politically. As a result of the analysis, it has one or more administrative information systems and uses the academic management system in common, and the system is often developed on its own through the university’s infrastructure, and data is deleted by the person in charge, but the regulations are not clear. To solve these problems, it was proposed to revise the EA portal to properly investigate the current status of the administrative information system of private universities, manage records centering on systems without data correction, and revise internal regulations to conduct education.
