Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 22, issue 4, 2011, Pages 5~19
The purpose of this study is to identify possible needs for system improvements and reflect them on the operation and development of the system as a result of the usability assessment of an information site in science and technology. For this study, a variety of data collection techniques, including search logs, interviews, and think-alouds, were used. The search log data was processed to quantify four evaluation aspects, which were the effectiveness, efficiency, satisfaction, and errors. The verbal data collected by think-alouds and post-interviews were used to identify possible needs of enhancement in a qualitative analysis. The comparison of the usability before and after the system enhancement revealed an increase of 15 points for effectiveness, 35 seconds decrease in efficiency, 5 points increase in satisfaction, and 1.1 errors decreased, implying an overall improvement of the usability of the current system.

Park, Myung-Kyu ; Lee, Ji-Won ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 22, issue 4, 2011, Pages 133~144
To measure the state of instructional programs in school libraries revitalized by the MEST project, teacher-librarians who are members of a provincial library education research committee were asked to respond to a survey and phone interview. The results illustrate that both teacher-librarians and classroom teachers lack a comprehensive understanding of information literacy(IL), and that information literacy instruction(ILI) was implemented in less than half of the surveyed schools. Even in those schools where ILI was implemented, the curriculum was underdeveloped, frequently consisting of little more than basic library orientation programs. The lack of understanding regarding ILI by classroom teachers was specified as a major barrier.

Evaluation of University Library Efficiency Using Data Envelopment Analysis
Jung, Young-Mi ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 22, issue 4, 2011, Pages 301~315
DEA(Data Envelopment Analysis) is useful to measure the relative efficiency of organizational units where the presence of multiple inputs and outputs. This study applied DEA-CCR and DEA-BCC to evaluate the technical, pure technical, and scale efficiency of 29 university libraries. The input variables were number of books, print edition expenses, building space, staff, number of seats. As output variables we estimated: reader visits, number of borrowed items, number of visitors. It was found out that number of libraries with 100% relative efficiency among 29 libraries were 13. Also the results shows that main reason of inefficiency was from scale rather than from pure technical. Many inefficient libraries were operations of increasing return to scale.

Journal PageRank Calculation in the Korean Science Citation Database
Lee, Jae-Yun ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 22, issue 4, 2011, Pages 361~379
This paper aims to propose the most appropriate method for calculating the journal PageRank in a domestic citation database. Korean journals show relatively high journal self-citation ratios and have many outgoing citations to external journals which are not included in the domestic citation database. Because the PageRank algorithm requires recursive calculation to converge, those two characteristics of domestic citation databases must be accounted for in order to measure the citation impact of Korean journals. Therefore, two PageRank calculation methods and four formulas for self-citation adjustment have been examined and tested for KSCD journals. The results of the correlation analysis and regression analysis show that the SCImago Journal Rank formula with the cr2 type self-citation adjustment method seems to be a more appropriate way to measure the relative impact of domestic journals in the Korean Science Citation Database.
