ABSTRACT

This study aims to propose task areas which have to be discussed for reforming of the Public Records and Archives Act in Korea. For drawing the task areas, it analysed the pending issues mainly presented in the policy forums co-hosted by Korean Society of Archival Studies and Korean Association of Records Managers and Archivists, and examined researches providing tasks of revising of the law or rebuilding public records policies related in digital records management. The 4 task areas were identified, which were the exhaustive documentation of the public agencies’ activities, the reexamination of the appraisal systems for public records and archives, the transition into the 2nd generation-digital records management, and the redefinition of roles and responsibilities of the records/archival institutions. Then it placed the issues into the 4 areas, and proposed some suggestions for further discussions in each tasks. Reminding that the task areas proposed in this study are not comprehensive, further suggestions and arguments will be expected for reforming the Public Records and Archives Act.
