Economic Impact of Government Archives
Yakel, Elizabeth ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 12, issue 3, 2012, Pages 155~176
Economic impact analyses have not been widely conducted in archives. This article reports on a two parallel surveys in the US and Canada to assess the economic impact of government archives (state, provincial, territorial, county, and municipal). The surveys utilize indirect measures of economic impact. Responses from 2,534 people in 66 archives were analyzed. Findings indicate that archives were the primary reason that respondents visited an area and that visitors exhibit specific patterns of visiting the archives in conjunction with other cultural organizations in an area. Furthermore, while many respondents used local eateries, fewer rented lodgings or spent money on theater or sporting events. As a result, the archives participating in this survey did have a modest impact on local economies. The article concludes by discussing three major questions about the evaluation of the economic impact of archives which were raised by the findings: 1) Are indirect measures the most appropriate means of assessing economic impact in archives or should archives employ direct measures as used by public libraries? 2) How should government archives formulate their value proposition and should those value propositions focus on other aspects of archives' impact, such as the social impact, to demonstrate archives' important role in society? and 3) Since visitors exhibited distinct visitation patterns, should archives work more with these other aligned organizations and work on larger forms of collective impact that benefit the entire cultural heritage sector in an area?

Rieh, Hae-Young ;
Journal of Records Management & Archives Society of Korea, volume 12, issue 3, 2012, Pages 177~201
This study investigated the status of information services in records and archives centers using the Web to survey and by interviewing archivists and professionals. Services offered are not various, but some actives services including offering records via SNS and provising exibitions using records are offered. Many of the requested records are for evidence and reference for works, and the finding aids are limited in their functions. Also, the barriers in offering services were mostly due to the fact that the duties of managing records are mostly performed by one profession, and they have not enough time to provide services with the lack of manpower. Also the arrangement and description level is not enough and the records systems have limitations including lack of search functions. For better services, improvement of the systems and the supplement of manpower is considered to be most urgent.
