ABSTRACT

The National September 11 Memorial is the institution that collects, assesses, arranges, uses, exhibits, and preserves collections related to the terror attack on September 11, 2001 (9/11), and the explosion incident at the World Trade Center (WTC) on February 26, 1996. After the 9/11 incident, various groups, including the LMDC and the PANYNJ, have participated in the establishment of this organization. Since its initial establishment, the necessity for memorial institutions and detailed characteristics had been discussed in meetings to gather citizens’ opinions. Furthermore, the enactment of the 9/11 Memorial Act has secured the institution’s stable operation and management. To properly manage disaster-related collections, a just agreement among the citizens and the government should be made to arrive at rational decision-making. This instution can provide answers regarding those ways. Moreover, managing disaster-related collections should be discussed as an important means of remembering, preserving memories, educating, revealing the truth, and preparing academic information and sources. As a result, collaborative governance in records management after a disaster is expected.
