You, Beom-Jong ; Lee, Hyung-Jin ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 15, issue 2, 2004, Pages 27~48
Research and development projects in Research and development projects in Korea are ineffectively conducted due to the lack of a system for effectively planning, conducting and disseminating the result of the research projects. In this study, we have designed a framework for system that can be used in the planning and managing stage of National R & D information to guarantee standardization and extendability of the information. A national R & D technology information portal system for managing the distributed national R & D information on a single database is suggested based on this framework for the construction of a more effective information support system and the dissemination of national R & D information between researchers.
An Analysis of the Present Publishing Media: Focusing on Data Development and Distribution
Kim, Jeong-Suk ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 15, issue 2, 2004, Pages 49~70
This study is to analyze the present publishing media in order to grasp the trend of data development and distribution. For this, I analyze the present tendency, concentrating indices of diagram, dividing into traditional book and e-book. It also discusses the viewpoint extracted from the problems related to the data development and distribution of publishing media. Traditional books and e-books have been expending to add newly updated convergence media in digital media era in which internet represents. I discuss these changes to convergence media for the realization of 'ubiquitous' mean the evolution to transmit propagational elements from proper character of traditional book. By the same token, I examine prospect of increasing digital publishing media and other problems before distribution.

A Study on Academic Library User's Information Literacy
Yoo, Jae-Ok ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 15, issue 2, 2004, Pages 241~254
This study reviews academic library users' information needs, use behaviors, and information literacy by examining previous literature related to academic library use study. The information academic library users want most is information about how to use library such as a circulation policy. Only about 10% of library users' information needs requires reference librarian's professional knowledge and skills. The sign and information system of the library should be improved and revised in order to reduce the redundant how-to questions. When academic library users attempt to do subject searches through online library system, they experience difficulties to find the right menu on the library's interface. The study recommends that special efforts should be made for user education for utilizing research information since user's information utilizing ability is unexpectedly low.
