ABSTRACT

This study aims to establish the definition of “event archive,” which collects and manages records that focus on a specific event, in order to present a new perspective onto the collection and management of private records. As such, this study defines “event archive” and then identifies its characteristics by comparing it with community archives and locality archives. An event archive consists of person, spatiality, and temporality. As it puts an emphasis on temporality in particular, this study suggests a spiral model, which grafts person and spatiality onto a time axis. Moreover, this study suggests three considerations for the construction of an event archive. First, it presents different construction methods for different types of event archives depending on the time an event occurred. Second, it suggests records collection and management areas considering the three components of an event archive—person, spatiality, and temporality. Third, it supports a digital archive for an event archive to become an open archive.
