Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 22, issue 1, 2011, Pages 47~77
Due to the growth of people's use of the Internet as well as interests in health, people's needs of health information have rapidly increased in public libraries. Nevertheless, there are few studies in Korea about users' needs for health information and services that public libraries can offer to support these user groups. In the current study, a comprehensive literature review was conducted in order to understand the role of public libraries and librarians in serving users with health information and to identify the types of consumer health information(CHI) services available to users in public libraries. As for the CHI services that public libraries can offer for users, the current study emphasizes and discusses the directions and guidelines for improving the following six approaches: 1) CHI collection and information resource building, 2) CHI reference services, 3) CHI user education and training program development, 4) CHI services for minority/disability/cultural diversity groups of users, 5) CHI outreach program development, and 6) CHI network development with medical libraries, academic libraries, hospital, and medical institutions and associations. Although most of the discussion in the current study centers on cases and services provided in the United States or other countries, findings would be used to inform the importance of CHI services in public libraries, and to design and develop CHI services in Korea.

Hahn, Mahn-Soung ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 22, issue 1, 2011, Pages 117~133
This research looks into the theory and practice of interconnections that exist between information literacy instruction(ILI) and writing instruction to gain further insights related to the development and forming of Korean ILI program. First of all, as evidenced by the ambiguity and various concepts that are possessed by the information literacy, this paper clearly indicates that the ILI cannot be achieved with a standardized set of guidelines across the board. And then, after investigating into the theories which deal mainly with the relativity to writing amongst the various ILI programs, this paper introduces precedents of Utah University, USA and Windsor University, Canada which have carried out writing instruction by actually connecting it with the ILI. Finally, this paper sounds out the possibility of connections or cooperation between writing and ILI within the scope of the Korean situation and suggests alternatives.

Appraising the Interface Features of Web Search Engines Based on User-defined Relevance Criteria
Kim, Yang-Woo ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 22, issue 1, 2011, Pages 247~262
Although research has shown a significant amount of work identifying various dimensions of relevance along with exhaustive lists of relevance criteria, there seem to have been less effort to apply the findings to improve actual systems design. Based on this assumption, this paper investigates to what extent those relevance criteria have been incorporated into the interface features of major commercial Web search engines, suggesting what can/should be done more. Before stepping into the actual system features, this paper compares recent relevance research in Information Science with other human factor studies both in Information Science and its neighboring discipline (HCI), as an attempt to identify studies that are conceptually similar to the relevance research, but not named as such way. Similarities and differences between these studies are presented. Recommendations suggested to support applicable interface features include: 1) further personalization of interface designs; 2) author-supplied meta tags for the Web contents; and 3) extensions of beyond-topical representations based on link structure.
