An Analysis of Reciprocal Borrowing Programs in the U.S.
Chung, Jin-Soo ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 2, 2010, Pages 5~13
As today's information environment changes rapidly with the development of information technology, users expect a variety of the library services that meet their emerging needs. This paper reports the concept of reciprocal borrowing and analyzes the cases of reciprocal borrowing programs in the US. Particularly, this paper introduces (1) three cases of state-wide library cards such as Georgia's PINES card, Maryland's MPower card, and Michigan's Michi card. (2) Public library systems in the U.S. also are introduced as a type of reciprocal borrowing. Another type of reciprocal borrowing mentioned in this paper was (3) an mutual agreement between and among libraries. The author sought the deeper understanding of reciprocal borrowing by mapping the cases described in this paper into three models of reciprocal borrowing Kwak et al.(2010) suggested. This paper concludes with a few important considerations in implementing reciprocal borrowing services in Korea.

The purpose of this study was to investigate how local governments implement and enforce library policies for their regional libraries to provide benefits to their community residents. To this end, this study analyzed public library polices of regional governments in Korea with their long-term and annual plans. According to the results almost regional governments included plans for public libraries in their long-term plans, however, organizations exclusively responsible for libraries were very rare. Main components of the policy mostly related with establishing public libraries. In addition, creating and supporting a small library, a library of building workforce capacity planning librarians, library cooperation system, whether to target the entire city reading promotion policies were included in the policy.

Kim, Seong-Hee ; Lee, Seung-Min ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 2, 2010, Pages 29~38
In this study, we analyzed the navigation systems in terms of global, local, Ad-hoc Navigation, and support navigation system using the 35 children's library websites. The study showed that the number of menu, retrieval interface, quick links need to be improved. These results can be used as a framework for designing children's library websites.
A Study on the Typological Characteristics of Young Adults Programs in Public Libraries and Its Solutions for Development
Kim, Jong-Sung ; Um, Mi-Jin ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 2, 2010, Pages 39~56
The purpose of this study is to seek the solutions for development of young adults programs in the public libraries in Korea. The reasons for the problems and limitations of the young adults programs are the absence of personnel in charge of young adult service, the shortage in book stock and space, the low participation due to the educational environment pursuing only entrance examination, the poor system in public relations and the cooperation with young adult related organization etc. As the result of seeking solutions for the development of young adults programs in the public libraries based on these problems, followings are required: the establishment of young adults service system, placement of personnel in charge, the development of integrated young adult programs, strengthening of education for librarians in charge, and the establishment of young adult service network.

Park, Hyun-Joo ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 2, 2010, Pages 57~68
This study presents the shape of the study on the users' bad behavior with consideration of the concept and types, antecedents, countermeasures on bad behaviors of library users on the basis of bad behavior theory and the direction of which the study can be applied in the domestic scenes henceforth.
A Study on the Harris's Thought and Classification Scheme
Kim, Jeong-Hyen ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 2, 2010, Pages 69~80
This study analyzed the Harris's philosophical ideas, American library classification in the Harris's era, and relationship to Bacon, Hegel, DDC based on the Harris's classification system. As is generally known so far, Harris himself described to have derived his classification from inverted Baconian arrangement. It is nowhere to be found that Harris reflected on Hegel's philosophical ideas in his scheme. But on this study, Harris was a Hegelian and a leading American exponent of ideas of Hegel at that time. So we can analogize being reflected on Hegelian philosophy in the Harris's scheme and actually the Hegelian basis can be founded for much of Harris's scheme. Also we can find that Harris's scheme springs directly from Bacon and indirectly Johnston's scheme.
A Study for Suggesting Online Reference Resources' Metadata Elements Based on the Users' Perceptions
Noh, Young-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 2, 2010, Pages 81~96
This study aimed to suggest metadata elements for online reference resource systems based on users' perceptions. We surveyed librarians in four types of libraries, asking them indicate the need for each of 17 metadata elements. The survey results were compared to the current data input rates of the system, which has been operating for the past two years. Based on both the respondent data and current data input rates, we suggested that title, description, subject, creator, type, identifier, language, coverage, location, and tag elements must be included in the system as the metadata elements for online reference resources. n addition, the input rates of creator and copyright were 20.20% and 18.30%, respectively, but the respondents answered that these items were needed 82.15% and 82.77%, respectively. Therefore, these two items are necessary as metadata elements. On the other hand, the data input rates of type, source, date, relation, and contribution were less than 3%, but almost 70% of respondents answered that all these items were needed. So further research should be performed to determine whether or not these items are needed for online reference resource systems.
Curriculum Planning for Children's Librarian
Park, Hyun-Ju ; Lee, Sang-Bok ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 2, 2010, Pages 97~110
The purpose of this study was to develop a curriculum model for the professional development of children's librarians at the university level through literature reviews, theoretical studies, survey of children's librarians' needs for their professional development, and investigation of the conditions of operation in the course of library and information sciences. The curriculum consists of five areas: (1) children's librarian, (2) child, (3) materials, (4) service, and (5) library management. There are two tracks: one for refinement in 90 hours, and the other for professional development in 165 hours. Some courses are made up practical activities drawn from theoretical foundations. The courses blend on-line and off-line styles of learning.
A Study of an Instructional Design Strategy for Improving the Collaborative Teaching Between School Librarians and Subject Teachers in Library-Assisted Instruction
Song, Gi-Ho ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 2, 2010, Pages 111~127
This study aims for developing an instructional design strategy to improve collaborative teaching between teacher librarians and subject teachers in library-assisted instruction. Collaborative teaching is an important management activity enhancing teaching role of teacher librarians in their school community. But in the actual condition the level of the library-assisted instruction as its practical strategy is cooperation and subject teachers are leading teaching and learning except for selecting resources. Because library-assisted instruction is resource-based learning, the procedural knowledge of information literacy curricula and topics of subject specific curricula should be designed as a whole. Also, there must be possibilities of reducing trial and error and expanding successes. From these sides, the collaborative design strategy for library-assisted instruction can be planned like 'statement of learning situation-co designing-co teaching-co evaluating'.
A Stakeholder Analysis for Understanding Barriers to Resource Sharing
Shim, Won-Sik ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 2, 2010, Pages 129~143
There is a recognition that traditional resource sharing methods such as interlibrary lending and document delivery are now inadequate to meet user needs in the increasingly networked environment. The current study identifies barriers to resource sharing and provides analysis of stakeholders engaged in resource sharing. Focused interviews with six professional librarians were also carried out to seek out deeper understanding of perceptions of barriers among librarians. Results show that the size of the library was not necessarily result in active resource sharing. There was a wide gap among librarians in terms of their attitudinal and organizational orientations towards resource sharing. Barriers specifically identified in the study include the narrowly defined notion among librarians of what constitutes research and the untested fear of swamping where there is an imbalance of collections. Overall, while resource sharing is recognized as an integral part of library services, it seriously lacks funding and staff. The study recommends earnest efforts to build librarians' community to invigorate resource sharing among libraries.
Comparison of the Users' Assessment about Internet and OPAC Based on Toolbar
Lee, Hyun-Sil ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 2, 2010, Pages 145~157
University library users prefer the internet to OPAC, when they search for information. It is necessary to develop interface of OPAC that is nearly as convenient as the internet. This study provides users with University Library Toolbar which is one of the ways to implement Web 2.0, and proved that OPAC is also a convenient and useful searching tool by offering the toolbar. In addition, the causes of the preferences of the internet sites surveyed for this study and the point shown in the comparison between the internet and OPAC are going to be essential materials to implement more convenient OPAC and Library 2.0.
A Study on Qualitative Improvement in the Information Services of University Libraries Through FISP
Chung, Jin-Sik ; Roh, Yoon-Ju ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 2, 2010, Pages 159~170
A survey was conducted with 155 professors in 23 universities in Seoul. The survey investigated recognition and the present condition of FISP among those professors, the results of which were analyzed in terms of three aspects: recognition of FISP, utility and implementation of FISP, and FISP users' satisfaction and opinions. of professors, FISP users were most frequently using it to write a treatise, while non-FISP users failed to use it because they had no information of its existence. Both FISP and non-FISP users significantly favored implementation of FISP and showed very positive intention of using it.
