ABSTRACT

Archival objects produced in relation to the activities of public institutions hold the inexpressible symbolism, historical value, and esthetical value as well in that the values of display and reuse of archives materials in the future are high as figures. The revised law of Archives Act in 2007 has provided a foundation for managing the archival objects in every public organization, by also including archival objects into the category of archives produced and registered in relation to their works. Although it could be seen as a reforming will to aim at the differential approach from the past to recognize the archival objects as records and make the managing will documented, it is still in an unprepared state to define the concepts on archival objects and to have methods to systematically manage and preserve them. Thus this paper has researched on the type classification of archival objects and their evaluation, as way of developing the methods for the management system for archival objects. On the premise that it should be preceded by clear definitions of concepts and distinctive understanding of their types first in order to build up the management system for archival objects, definition and type classification of the archival object have been attempted, based on the actual research materials and the current relevant laws. In addition, this study has analyzed the characteristics of selecting archival objects in order to search for which one they should obtain and manage among archival objects produced and reused in relation to the works of public institutions. On the basis of this, the plans for the national selection system and provision of selecting criteria for the subjects of permanent preservation have been suggested in this study.
