A Study on the Resources for Competitive Intelligence
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 13, issue 1, 2002, Pages 5~25
The purpose of this study is to give some motivation about competitive intelligence to Library an Information Science field in Korea. Several issues are introduced such as the concepts and process of competitive intelligence, and using Internet for competitive intelligence. In addition, the resources for competitive intelligence are provided with search strategy. Search results show that there are a few korean materials of competitive intelligence. At the end, the pathfinder of competitive intelligence is given, so that it will be useful for the people who are interested in this subject.
The Development of Citation Indicators of Korean Medical Journals
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 13, issue 1, 2002, Pages 27~41
The study investigated the citation indicators and the citation analysis data developed in the KoMCI(Korean Medical Citation Index) project. With the full understanding of the current level of citation rates of Korean medical journals by Korean medical journals. and of the characteristics and problems associated with the KoMCI citation indicators, it is possible to further develop or modify citation indicators which will better represent the citation patterns of Korean medical journals. The highest impact factor reported in the KoMCI 2000 : Korean Medical Journal Citation Reports, which covered 69 Korean medical journals published in 2000 is 0.424 and the average is 0.182. It is because only 8.5% of references cited in Korean medical journal articles is to the Korean journal articles, The journal self-citation rates are very high (usually higher than 50%) due to the fact that there are only a few Korean journals published in the same subject area. The KoMCI impact factors of two Korean SCI journals for which SCI JCR reported the SCI 2000 impact factors are about 1/3 of the SCI impact factors. It is because SCI is based on the citations received from 5,900 journals whereas KoMCI is from 69 journals.
Collecting of the Competitive Intelligence by using the Internet
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 13, issue 1, 2002, Pages 43~57
Modern society is called as an intelligence society that many companies need information and intelligence as factors for good production. So many knowledge workers want to seek information by himself easily and effectively. As a result of this study, the using search engines in internet is not effective for the competitive intelligence. This thesis suggests some methods for effective searching methods for competitive intelligence. The first method is intensive searching for special site and the second is customized information service and the last is using of the limited function in search engines.
A Usability Study of the Web-based Academic Library Services

The most efficient library service on the web was a book search. 100% of subjects found the answer in 42.2 seconds, while the least efficient library service was journal article search in which 23.1% of subjects found the answer in 271.7 seconds. Subjects were highly satisfied with the book request service on the web since it is the easiest to understand and the most convenient to use.
Strategic Approach to Managing Information(patent) for Utilization of R&D Outcomes
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 13, issue 1, 2002, Pages 77~92
Only requiring research reports or publishing articles as the final obligation of R&D activities is not sufficient to utilize and reproduce the knowledge information. Since a lot of important data have been ignored and missed by the public or private research institutions, it is not easy to manage and utilize R&D outcomes and to develope knowledge-intensive business as we expect. It is important and rather urgent matter that we should reexamine the related regulations/ laws of Intellectual Property and observe the practical problems of data utilization in real settings. This study reviewed recent studies about domestic R&D institutions, current regulations related IP, and some conflicts with the copyright, and then summarized the problems/ solutions of utilizing R&D information as knowledge assets.

Through art historians’ways of studying and theoretical examinations of using art contents, it investigated appropriate data factors derived from something in common between the documentation in art museums and the studies in studies in fine arts, and also presented what kinds and levels of data factors were needed in digitalization of art contents.
The Systematic production of Culture and Arts Statistics in Korea
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 13, issue 1, 2002, Pages 115~132
UNESCO Framework for the Culture Statistics(FCS) is composed of cultural media and cultural activities. It's structure has become a standard and criteria for cultural statistics of the nations in the world. In this paper
Culture and Arts Statistics in Korea
Culture and Arts Statistics of Developed Countries
has been analyzed based with FCS, in the respect of the structure and equality of the statistical items in cultural fields. The former has been published rationally through the steps of structural research, producing items and renew the structure, but the latter hasn't. The latter needs the policy to select the nations and research for the cultural structure to apply for them.

The New Roles and Requirements of Information Specialist in the Area of IT
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 13, issue 1, 2002, Pages 167~182
Rapidly changing information technologies and changes in new information type provide a new turning point in librarian's role and job as an information specialist. A library traditionally processes and manages paper-type information resources. But, with new requirements to library and changes of information sources, a digital library for use, management, and delivery of information came into existence. The appearance of digital library provides new direction for information processing and requires various changes in roles of information specialists for appropriately and quickly providing information and knowledge for users. The developments of information technology related to information and knowledge and environmental changes around library provide information specialist, who have a role in information processing and delivery, with new challenging areas. On the other hand, the traditional library areas can be infringed upon by those factors. With such rapid changes, an information specialist with a major in library and information science makes various efforts to keep their status as an information specialist and performs their role in information siciety. Currently, they partially lead an active role in the areas relating information and knowledge. This paper focuses on information specialist' current status and role in not library areas but new areas related to information technologies, and figures out requirements to take firm position in those areas.

A Study for Enhancing Community-based Services in Public Libraries
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 13, issue 1, 2002, Pages 199~213
The public library as a public institution, funded by the public, is accountable to provide community based services. Those services can be developed through identifying community needs and implementing proper planning process to satisfy the identified needs. Under budget pressure, public libraries have changed their emphasis from the provision of the standardized services to the establishment of specialized services to reflect the differing characteristics of the community and the community members each public library serves. This paper reviews the research in this area since 1970s and suggests guidelines for the enhancement of community based public library services.
A Study on the Information Services for Blind People - Focused on Braille Libraries in Korea -
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 13, issue 1, 2002, Pages 215~230
A braille library undoubtedly changes with a changing information environment. However "changing information service" as a topic couldn't be found among previous researches. That's the reason it felt necessary in this paper to analyze the way service in a braille library changes according to a changing environment. as well as to make clear the meaning and the role a braille library has for blind people. As a first step, a questionnaire aimed at Korean braille libraries was carried out in order to understand changes of library service. Results showed that most changes in braille library service were due to the influence of internet, directly or indirectly. In this connection. the way braille libraries made us of this new tool was analyzed as follows. Firstly braille libraries were found to help a better circulation of information from internet towards blind people. It appeared secondly that internet was also used in order to improve already existing services as well as new services. Thirdly libraries were shown to have developed new services related to internet although these services weren't initially library ones. These new aspects of library service constitute by themselves a proof of the importance of braille libraries, although blind people might in some cases obtain the wished piece of information without them. Therefore braille libraries prove to be remained necessarily even if information environment changes.t changes.
