ABSTRACT

After introducing the Industrial Trainee System in 1993, the population of immigrants coming to Korean have increased rapidly and over 2 million immigrants are living in Korea in 2017. In this situation, libraries are responsible for collecting, organizing, preserving and disseminating various records related to immigrants living in local communities but it is hard to find these kind of libraries in Korea. So, this study is trying to investigate the characteristics of multicultural archives established by libraries in other countries. To do this, 9 multicultural archives in U.S. and Canada were analyzed in terms of participating institutions and supporting institutions, types of records, digitizing and file formats, digital collection management systems and metadata schemas. At last, some suggestions were proposed to improve the function of libraries as a local multicultural archives.
