A Study on the Components of Library Services for Applying Universal Design
Kim, Bo-Il ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 3, 2010, Pages 5~16
Libraries should offer their services to all users including those who find difficult to access knowledge information without any obstacles or discrimination. Therefore, this study, aiming at providing library services to all users by applying 'Universal Design' to libraries, extracted and presented five components in library services: universal convenience, which allows all users to use libraries; safety of services, which offers safety in library use; user-orientedness, which offers user-oriented library services; user request, which allows library services reflecting the needs of users; and economic feasibility of the services, which provide efficient and economic library services. The proposed five components will play the foundational role in implementing universal design on libraries so that all users can use library services.
A study on the Evaluation of Reading Ability for the Literature Reading of Korean College Students: the Freshmen of A University
Lee, Jong-Moon ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 3, 2010, Pages 17~27
This study aimed to identify the problems of college students in reading the literature and on the basis of the identified problems, to suggest the approaches to solve the problems. To this end, time required for reading passages, reading patterns, understanding, memory and reading habits and attitudes were analyzed with the freshmen in A university. In accordance with the analysis results, 58% of subjects was good and 42% was not sufficient on the basis of the averages in Scholastic Aptitude Test. Second, 77% of subjects had the good patterns but 23% showed certain problems in reading patterns. Third, 69% and 67% of subjects illustrated good results in the analysis on understanding and memory, respectively. However, 31% and 33% were evaluated as being on the general level or requiring efforts in the analysis on understanding and memory, respectively. Next, according to the analysis on reading habits and attitudes, 77% had no problems but 23% required improvement. For solving the problems identified through the analysis, it is recommended to develop the scientific and standardized evaluation tools for evaluating the reading ability of college students. Second, it is necessary to evaluate the reading ability, habit and attitude during the screening process for admission or after admission. Finally, it is required to operate the Fundamental Academic Ability Learning Center(tentative name) to improve the ability of students who show the insufficient results in evaluation.

A Study on Improving Information Literacy of Marriage Immigrants through the Analysis of Marriage Immigrants Gatekeepers
Lee, Yong-Jae ; Cho, Yong-Wan ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 3, 2010, Pages 57~75
The purpose of this study was to examine the level of information literacy of the marriage immigrant gatekeepers in Korea. To do this, 51 gatekeepers who live in Busan and Gyeongnam Province were surveyed and the result was compared with the result of another study that was conducted regarding 189 ordinary marriage immigrants living in Busan and Gyeongnam Province in 2009 and used the same survey instrument. As a result, the level of information literacy of the gatekeepers was superior to that of the ordinary marriage immigrants. Also, 14 gatekeepers were interviewed to investigate how they had higher level of information literacy than that of ordinary marriage immigrants. Through analysis of the interviews, "information use environments of the mother country" didn't support their information literacy, but "higher education level", "Korean language skills and bilingual/multilingual abilities", "experiences of information literacy education", "information-friendly home environment", "positive attitude toward life and active social participation" and "active utilization of several information service providers and media" could be the backgrounds of higher information literacy of the marriage immigrant gatekeepers. At the end of this study, some suggestions are made for improving the information literacy of the ordinary marriage immigrants.
Developing a Faceted Classification Scheme Integrated with a Thesaurus for Literature
Park, Zi-Young ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 3, 2010, Pages 77~89
The purpose of this study is to develop a faceted classification scheme linked with a thesaurus(FCT) to more effectively organize documents according to subject, by transforming the current Korean Decimal Classification system(KDC) into a faceted classification scheme and linking it with Korea’s National Library Subject Headings. This combination should represent complex subjects more clearly, allow users to change citation order, and facilitate the addition of new subjects to the KDC scheme. Furthermore, by linking a thesaurus to the classification scheme, it is possible to share facets and expand the conceptual level of headings through the thesaurus descriptors.
A Study on the Services of Senior Programs in Public Libraries: Compared with the Senior Programs in Senior Welfare Centers
Lee, Myeong-Hee ; Kim, Mi-Cho ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 3, 2010, Pages 91~107
This study was conducted to grasp senior education programs with the purpose of providing senior education services and researching program development of public libraries for elderly population of an aging society. Senior education programs provided by 33 Senior Welfare Centers and 41 public libraries in Seoul were compared in terms of, 6 subjects such as health, literacy/education, information education, death preparation education, hobbies and employment/volunteer. The Senior Welfare Center provided much more senior programs, whereas the public libraries appeared that the number of institutions participating in senior services was very few, and the program provision for elderly population appeared to be extremely insufficient. A specific course schedule of the program of 'making of a happiness map' of death preparation education, which is one theme among them, was developed.

Noh, Dong-Jo ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 3, 2010, Pages 139~149
This study determines the implementation status of the improvement being made to Korean university libraries. An e-mail survey was conducted targeting 24 Korean university libraries. Conclusions after analysing the responses of the survey were as follows:(1) 24 university libraries implemented 88 different methods of operating their libraries. In other words each library implemented an average 3.67 different methods operating.(2) Twelve universities initiated their improvement schemes in 2008, ten universities initiated their improvement schemes in 2007, nine universities initiated their improvement schemes in 2005, eight universities initiated their improvement schemes in 2010 and seven universities initiated their improvement schemes in 2009. Most university libraries implemented their improvement after 2005.(3) Most university libraries improvement schemes entailed online tours, special events, personal customized services, and SMS services. We noted that online reference services such as the Wiki Service, Twitter, Facebook, Cyworld were not initiated.
A Study of a Semantic Web Driven Architecture in Information Retrieval: Developing an Exploratory Discovery Model Using Ontology and Social Tagging
Cho, Myung-Dae ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 21, issue 3, 2010, Pages 151~163
It is necessary, due to changes in the information environment, to investigate problems in existing information retrieval systems. Ontologies and social tagging, which are a relatively new means of information organization, enable exploratory discovery of information. These two connect a thought of a user with the thoughts of numerous other people on the Internet. With these connection chains through the interactions, users are foraging information actively and exploratively. Thus, the purpose of this study is, through qualitative research methods, to identify numerous discovery facilitators provided by ontologies and social tagging, and to create an exploratory discovery model based on them. The results show that there are three uppermost categories in which 5, 4 and 4 subcategories are enumerated respectively. The first category, 'Browsing and Monitoring,' has 5 sub categories: Noticing the Needs, Being Aware, Perceiving, Stopping, and Examining a Resource. The second category, Actively Participating, has 4 categories: Constructing Meaning, Social Bookmarking and Tagging, Sharing on Social Networking, Specifying the Original Needs. The third category, Actively Extends Thinking, also has 4 categories: Social Learning, Emerging Fortuitous Discovery, Creative Thinking, Enhancing Problem Solving Abilities. This model could contribute to the design of information systems, which enhance the ability of exploratory discovery.
