Research Trends in Archival Appraisal Science in Korea: Retrospect and Prospect
Choi, Jae Hee ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 1, 2011, Pages 7~22
This paper surveyed the research trends in archival appraisal science in Korea. All 33 articles from 4 relevant academic journals articles were analysed on the basis of quantitative measurement and thematic sorting. The number of the articles by the record managers or archivists working at the public bodies has especially decreased for some time past. A distinguishing feature was a decline in interest in the present appraisal system and methodology. Correspondence between practice and academic theory be required for the future development in archival appraisal.
A Study on the Improvement of Record and Archives Training in the National Archives of Korea
Si, Kwisun ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 1, 2011, Pages 23~45
In most countries, the national archives and universities operate educational programs and training courses for present and future records managers and archivists. In Korea, records management and archival training has been provided by the National Archives of Korea(NAK) and multiple graduate programs in archival studies. Records management and archival training programs in the NAK affect directly on the quality of the records and archives management in the public agencies and further on the records and archives management in general. In this paper, I presented a general overview of the records management and archival training programs in the NAK which focus on continuing professional education for the records managers in the public agencies. While presenting some key issues in the training programs, I also suggested some solutions and alternatives for the improvement and expansion of the training programs of the NAK. I suggested an expansion and diversification of the scope and contents of the training programs which would include training of records creators in the public sector and records managers and archivists in the private sector.

Kim, You-Seung ; Jeon, Jin-Han ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 1, 2011, Pages 47~66
An exclusive monopoly on public sector information has been faced with dramatic changes. The movement of Government 2.0, which is described as meeting of Web 2.0 technologies and public services, provides a new paradigm for public information services, and spreads rapidly into many western countries. However, due to the absence of domestic Government 2.0 cases, our academic discussion on Government 2.0 ends up in the introduction of oversea cases and in a theoretical diagnosis. In the context, this study focuses on the first two cases of Government 2.0 in South Korea; Gwacheon Parliament's 'Local Parliament 2.0' and Seoul Metropolitan Office of Education's 'Seoul Education 2.0' along with theoretical debates on concepts of public sector information and Government 2.0. The case study reveals the role of Freedom of Information Center not only as a think tank, but also a policy coordinator for implementing Government 2.0 movements. As a conclusion, the study presents elements for public sector information services and proposes a planning model of Government 2.0.

Woo, Jee-Won ; Lee, Young-Hak ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 1, 2011, Pages 67~92
With the movement for complete liquidation of the part history began during participatory government, a special law for the liquidation of the past history was enacted and committees related to the past history have been established. Works related to the past history has relatively smoothly progressed even if there have been many obstacles, but as the duration for the special law reached its final point, committees related the past history came to the fork of a road. This study reflects on this reality and focuses on measures for application of the records collected by committees related to the past history and in this way, establish and selected the record information contents was established and selected. The users of the information was classified into professors, students, and history researchers and Committee for the Inspection of Damages by Compulsory Mobilization under Japanese Imperialism, Committee for the Inspection of Japan Collaborators, and Truth and Reconciliation Commission were selected for the committees related to the past history to establish the contents.
Analysis and Utilization of Search Terms in Archival Web Sites: A Case Study of Korean Presidential Archives
Rieh, Hae-Young ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 1, 2011, Pages 93~112
This study investigated whether search terms analysis of archival Web sites could be utilized effectively for archival information services. The focus was on designing a methodology which brings the search terms analysis and development of archival information services closer, especially for the contents services. The data were collected from the Presidential Archives because it can be characterized as a public archives as well as subject archives. It also tends to draw interests from a broad range of general public. The analysis was conducted with respect to three dimensions: (1) general search terms; (2) names of individual president; (3) subject categories of search terms. The results of search terms analysis have a number of practical implications for developing archival information services including contents services, decision on the menu of the Web sites, exhibition, and education.
Records/Archives Management and Professionalism: Exclusive Privileges in Exchange of Professional Commitments
Lee, So-Yeon ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 1, 2011, Pages 113~138
Records and archives community was forced to face the essence of and social values of its professionalism. The purpose of the present study lies in providing a broader and fundamental perspective to shed lights on professionalism in records and archives management by reviewing previous studies on professionalism and professions. It reviews key concepts from the professionalism literature and scrutinized professional commitments and exclusive privileges, which are two sides of the same coin. Fundamental issues involved in records and archives profession are also taken into account, including the relationship between theory and practice as well as between professional ethics and professional association.
A Study on the Creation and Maintenance of Laboratory Notebooks in Scientific Laboratories of a University
Kim, Jihyun ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 1, 2011, Pages 139~159
This study investigated the perceived significance of laboratory(lab) notebooks and the creation and maintenance of them from the perspectives of graduate students and professors in science fields. Semi-structured interviews of three professors and four graduate students were conducted. The interviewees were from three university laboratories of physics, chemistry and biological science. While professors perceived administrative continuity to be a reason for creating lab notebooks, students valued lab notebooks as a memory, and emphasized learning professional knowledge and skills through the recordkeeping practice. Students understood the ownership of lab notebooks and professors wanted to keep lab notebooks until they retire. Interviewees focused more on the content of lab notebooks rather than the form and the structure. They were also not willing to adopt an electronic lab notebook system. Students learned how to create lab notebooks through a course, their current or former academic advisors, seniors in the lab or well-written sample lab notebooks. In particular, students have learned how to create lab notebooks within their laboratories, which are considered to be communities of practice. In this sense, professors responsible for managing laboratories play an important part in teaching students the recordkeeping practice. University archives should also be more concerned with managing and preserving lab notebooks created from their universities.
A Study on Benefits of Digital Preservation of Research Data

A Proposal of a Quality Model for Cultural Heritage Archive Portals
Heo, Misook ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 1, 2011, Pages 231~252
User needs and their usage motivations are critical components of web portal success, yet limited studies have been conducted with the constituents of good cultural heritage archive portals from the user perspective. This study proposes a quality assessment model from the user perspective. To overcome the intrinsic biases, the triangulation approach was chosen for building a research model. The proposed research model adapts three existing web portal quality models: service quality model, data quality model, and technology acceptance model. A 99-item instrument is suggested to investigate the proposed model. In the next phase of research, the instrument will be tested for its construct validity, and the research model will be empirically tested.
Development in the Means of Transportation of Busan in the Modern Age and Its Records: Focused on Trains and Trams
Kim, Dong-Chul ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 1, 2011, Pages 253~271
The modern age is such an era of time and space compressed. The central axis having compressed the time of the modern Busan city was the very trains and trams. The development of the means of modern transportation, such as trans and trams, came to change the time-space characteristics of cities in the modern age. Through trains and trams regarded as symbols of modern cities, this study attempted to find the localities of Busan as a modern city. The development of the modern Busan city was actually based on modernity and colonial exploitation. Documents of localities provide data to read humans' local-related experiences. 'Documenting localities' related to the means of modern transportation is a work process to read the localities of Busan in the modern age. Through this process, it is possible to understand how means of transportation can be correlated with a local community, local residents' daily lives and spatial change. Overall, this study is such a small attempt for this concern.
As an Open Port, Busan Port and Related Records
Song, Jung-Sook ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 1, 2011, Pages 273~298
The Treaty of Friendship, Commerce and Navigation between the Chosun dynasty and Japan and the United States of America etc. began signing procedures from Feb. 1876. Thus, Busan port became an open port to foreign vessels in 1876. This has resulted in Busan port becoming the greatest port in Korea. This study explored records which were made by the Chosun dynasty and Japan on the opening and development of Busan port. The results are as follows ; According to making treaties between the Chosun dynasty and foreign countries, Chosun dynasty gradually opened a door to the international community. Various institutions were established in and around Busan port by Chosun and Japan. For example, maritime customs, a court of justice, police station by the Chosun side, a Japanese consulate, the Board of Trade for Japan etc by the Japan side. Records made by or related to these institutions and on the development of the Busan port during the open-port period and the Japanese colonial period were preserved at the Kyujanggak Institute for Korean Studies, the National Institute of Korean History, and the Busan Metropolitan Simin Municipal Library.
The Study on the Archives Held in Railroad Stations in Busan
Lee, Ju-Yeon ; Kim, Hee-Young ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 11, issue 1, 2011, Pages 299~326
This paper surveyed records and archives which the railroad stations in Busan possesses and illustrated the status of them. Also we examined whether records and archives of railroad stations contain the memories of localities or not. We visited 17 railroad stations in Busan and we found that 1) the archives in railroad station are fugitive archives 2) the records or archives are classified into five categories, 'station's history', 'report on station-adjacent area', 'report of drive and transport', 'photos', and 'other materials' 3) the volume of such archives in 17 stations are different because of disposal or missing 4) Each archives in same category have same form. Especially the descriptions and images in 'station's history', 'report on station-adjacent area' represent much to memories of locality, but we also must examine the public records, private records related railroad station in Busan for documenting localities. To bridge the gap we suggest to collect oral records by relevant persons.
