Today, most archives provide recording services through social media; however, their effectiveness is very low. This study aimed to analyze the causes of insufficient social media recording service, focusing on Gyeongnam Archives and Seoul Metropolitan Archives, which are permanent records management institutions and local government archives, and design ways to create synergy by mutual growth with classical recording service. Through literature research, the characteristics and mechanisms of each social medium were identified, and the institutions' current status of social media operations and internal documents were reviewed to analyze the common problems. An in-depth analysis was conducted by interviewing the person in charge of recording services at each institution. In addition, a plan that can be applied to archives was proposed by reviewing the cases of social media operations of domestic-related institutions and overseas archives. Based on this, a new recording service process was established, strategic operation plans for each social medium were proposed, and a plan to mutually grow with the existing recording service was designed.
According to the amendment of the Enforcement Decree of the Public Records Management Act in 2020, an administrative information dataset record management plan will be enacted, and the National Archives of Korea plans to establish an integrated administrative information dataset management system to support it. However, there is no specific service plan that considers the characteristics of the datasets and the Management Reference Table. Therefore, this paper compared and analyzed the current status of dataset services at 14 domestic and foreign public data portals and archives websites, derived implications, and proposed 6 service plans applicable to the integrated administrative information dataset management system. This study's results will lead to utilizing the administrative datasets and the activation of services.
Currently, an implementation plan of administrative information dataset record management has been prepared; however, analyzing the specificity of various administrative information systems and preparing a reasonable level of management reference table by applying about 1.3% (EA portal registration system: 16,199, consulting system: 214) has its limitations. This study started by recognizing the importance of the records management environment in administrative information datasets. Based on the described information, the current records management environment was analyzed by dividing the six areas of the management reference table of the picture archiving and communication system (PACS) into three groups. Thus, a systematic environmental improvement model was proposed, enhancing the effectiveness of dataset records management in the field. Although there is a limitation in analyzing one of the dataset records management environments of various institutions, it is intended to help broaden the horizons of records management research.
Many Korean schools are in danger of closure because of a decreasing school-age population, and cases of consolidation of educational institutions in the local community are on the rise. A number of educational records, particularly educational administrative artifacts (hereafter “Edu Artifacts”), are accordingly in danger of disappearing. Despite their historical, cultural, and educational value, systematic management is far from satisfactory. This study thus examines the characteristics of Edu Artifacts from the archival and cultural heritage perspectives and compares standard records management system, special type records management system, and historical manuscripts management system, which are currently used in public institutions, to see what is required to manage them effectively. By analyzing the Edu Artifacts possession status and management system of J University of Education, This study intends to verify the research outcome’s effectiveness by presenting the essential functions of the management system of Edu Artifacts and the corresponding menu structure.
This study selected four institutions, namely the National Archives of Korea, the National Library of Korea, the National Institute of Korean History, and the Institute for Military History, that have collected the foreign records about Korea, providing web services for users. A total of 163,874 records were collected from these institutions to analyze the topics of the records, which resulted in a proposed topic map with 7 facets as top levels. This study suggests an integrated and visualized tool using a topic map to improve the searching service of foreign records about Korea from Korean institutions, especially the US records related to Korea.
Through this study, the following proposals were made to secure the operability of local governments’ records management systems (RMSs). First, for the stable operation and maintenance of RMS, establishing a noninterruptible system with regular operation support is necessary. Second, improving the maintenance quality above a certain level by establishing an integrated RMS maintenance system is imperative. Third, systematically managing the RMS infrastructure compatibility list should be vital to provide clear standards for maintaining local governments’ RMS structure.
