ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to identify useful factors for the curriculum development of the archival program in Korea by analyzing archival graduate programs of the Schools of Library and Information Science in English-speaking Canada. Name and history of the schools, degrees, credits, required and elective courses, practice, research, and faculty of archival programs, and the official guidelines of ACA and SAA are compared by analyzing web sites and literature review. It is found that Canadian LIS schools offer independent archival programs with a separate MAS degree or a specialization. University of British Columbia, the first LIS school that has a separate MAS degree program, provides a systematically developed curriculum. It also reveals that Canadian archival programs are based on their own principles and SAA guidelines because ACA guidelines are out of date. Based upon the analysis of the archival programs in Canada, the current situations of the archival graduate programs in Korea are compared and several suggestions are made for the direction of successful archival education in Korea in the end..
