ABSTRACT

The study aims to explore the alternatives through case analysis in the UK, which is quickly responding with appraisal policies and guidelines appropriate to the digital age. Through a theoretical study, it was confirmed that the concept of appraisal in the digital age was extended to decisions on which records to be created and acquired, and in this context, that the value of records needed to be determined at the earliest point in their life cycle. Furthermore, the advantages of macro-appraisal methods and the inevitability of expanding appraisal groups were outlined. Based on this discussion, the change in the British public record appraisal policy was discussed from a policy perspective, and the current British public record appraisal system was analyzed. Based on the analysis of various policy statements and guidelines, general appraisal criteria, 60 operation selection policies and appraisal processes were discussed. As a conclusion, this study discusses various alternatives to appraisal policies in the digital age.
