    Abstract PDF
    From the beginning of the enactment and implementation of the Public Records Management Act, there has been a steady discussion on the establishment of local archives. Local archives include not only administrative records of local governments, but also private archives such as containing the lives of residents. Along with the academic discussion, there have been movements for local autonomy and decentralization. Currently, interest and discussion on private archiving are in the historical flow. In addition, private archiving has become a social concern because of the establishment of systems such as the Public Records Management Act and the Information Disclosure Act, the establishment of a digital environment, and the spread of the meaning and value of village community activities. There are several government agencies related to private archiving, and the grounds for performing their work are different, and there are many central administrative agencies to which they belong. Therefore, I propose that the National Archives take the lead and form a ‘Consortium of Private archives Management Institutions’. The organization should promote first, cooperation of collection information and archives, second, coordination of tasks and functions between institutions, and third, establishment of a nationwide private archives management system. Now is our chance. Instead of reacting on an ad hoc basis, respond systematically with a long-term perspective.

  • Environment Model of Relational Archives

    Lee, Yeon Chang | 2021, (69) | pp.63~91 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    If archives cooperate with other archives in similar fields, various outcomes that are not possible when operated individually can be efficiently achieved. If the archive maintains a cooperative relationship between archives at all times and allocates limited resources to priority and essential activities, efficiency improvement can be expected in the operation of individual archives. If an archive tries to coexist, exchange, or cooperate with other archives, the scope and method will be different from the existing business performance. It will be different from the individually operated archive function in many ways, and new business functions that did not exist before are also required. In this study, by applying the environment model of OAIS, try to reconstruct the environment model of the relational archives that includes the partner of cooperation as a member of the archives that affects the operation of the archives.
