Improving Faceted Navigation Using the KDC Tables for the Korean Bibliography
Park, Zi-Young ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 1, 2012, Pages 47~63
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.1.047
The purpose of this study is to improve the faceted navigation function of next-generation library catalogs(NGC) using the tables in a classification scheme. Because the tables provide forms or contents of materials systematically, faceted navigation based on the tables can be as effective as faceted navigation based on language, publishing date, or class-level subject facet. Therefore, class numbers based on the Korean Decimal Classification (KDC) were examined and the characteristics of schedules and tables were analyzed. As a result, suggestions to improve faceted navigation was provided. Moreover, the method using the tables does not need additional resources to derive facets because the facet analysis process is always carried out in the classification process.

The Concept of the Context-Aware Computing and Its Application to the Library Information Services
Lee, Jeong-Mee ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 1, 2012, Pages 179~194
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.1.179
This study explored the concept of context-aware computing and its application to the library and information services. Context-aware computing represents mobile computing techniques which gather, analyze user`s contextual information and provide appropriate information services for the specific user. The idea was proposed in the late 90`s but it was not widely available to the public because of the technology limitation. Recent technology development made context-aware computing possible to apply to our everyday-life information seeking using smart phone and showed the usefulness of its application. This study introduced the concept of context-aware computing with some examples of it, and finally tried to propose some of its applications to the library and information services.
