Title: Standardization of Archival Description in Korea: Examining the Understanding, Adoption, and Implementation of ISAD(G)
Abstract: This study attempts to understand the standardization of ISAD(G)--International Standard of Archival Description (General) -- from a cultural as well as technical perspective. While several studies have been conducted on the implementation of the ISAD(G) in Western countries, the Asian national and local experiences of the standard remain relatively unexplored. Using Korea as a case study, this study aims to explore how the international standard (the ISAD(G)) impacts local practice in the non-Western countries, how the Western archival paradigm embedded in the ISAD(G) standard reinforced Western archival practice within non-Western societies, and how non-Western societies re-appropriate the archival practice in the course of adopting the standard. To explore the adoption of the standard, this researcher employs a combination of historical text analysis, a crosswalk analysis of metadata, and ethnographic research analysis.
