ABSTRACT

This study aims to examine the current status of school archives and suggest improvements. To do that, in-depth interviews were conducted with seven principals of schools in J city, which participated in the School Archives Project initiated by 'J' Office of Education, and a record manager in charge of the project. The interviews consist of four parts: 1) perceptions about the overall project, 2) acquisition of historical manuscripts of the schools, 3) arrangement and preservation of the historical manuscripts, and 4) services in the school archives. The results found that the principals had difficulties in managing the archives by themselves and requested continual financial and human resource support from the J Office of Education. This study suggests the future direction of the School Archives Project as well as recommendations for improving the current status of manuscript management in the schools.
