The Design and Development of Linked Data from Authority Data in National Archives of Korea
Park, Ok-Nam ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 2, 2012, Pages 5~25
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.2.005
The purpose of this study is to develop linked data of authority data in national archives of Korea as a cornerstone for linked data cloud of Korea. The study analyzed data structure of authority data as well as a retrieval system. It finally developed linked data based on RDF/OWL, Dublin Core, and SKOS. The study also employed TopBraid ComposerTM as a tool for ontology construction. The visualization of the tool provides users with flexible search and browsing between data as well as access of detail authority data. It complements the search of a current system in terms of flexible linking between records and authority data. The study also suggests future work to publish linked data of archival data set itself and make rich relationships among data in museums, libraries, and other archives.
Applying CONA to FRSAD for Organizing Cultural Works Information
Park, Zi-Young ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 2, 2012, Pages 27~44
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.2.027
This paper provides suggestions for analyzing Cultural Objects Name Authority(CONA) developed by the Getty Trust and applying CONA to Functional Requirements for Subject Authority Data(FRSAD). CONA is linked with the other Getty controlled vocabularies such as AAT, ULAN, and TGN, and can be linked with the library controlled vocabularies, such as LCSH. However, CONA has differences with library models since CONA is based on the art museum or art gallery. Therefore, we need to consider it when we link CONA to library standard models. The results discussed in this study have implications for analyzing CONA which provides access for cultural objects and applying it to the FRSAD, the subject authority model in library fields.
Archival Memory on the Web: Web 2.0 Technologies for Collective Memory
Sinn, Dong-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 2, 2012, Pages 45~68

Archives have directly and indirectly served for memory. What is collected in archives, how it is presented to users, and how users understand and use the documents affects how a given society remembers its past. Some archival scholars see that how users interpret documents from their perspectives and by social interests may play a central role in constructing social memory because memories are often triggered by individual and social concerns of the present time. Therefore, knowing what causes users to seek for a certain materials, how they use those materials and why can offer a clue to learn how archives serve for social memory. In the Web space, the interaction between users and archives/archival materials can be easily observed. Beyond making access simple for users and promoting archival documents using Web technology, archives can serve the broader purpose of memory by skillfully exploiting the characteristics of Web 2.0 and digital cultures in a way to observe how users engage in and contribute to archival contents available on the Web. This study examines the discourses on memory in the archival context, and in particular, how archives can serve as platforms for memory within the new environment of Web 2.0 technologies. It surveys discussions on memory in relation to archives, history, and evidence, focusing on the user and use context as it is represented in the archival literature. This paper discusses how that technology provides features that allow us to see collective memory being constructed in the archives, and presents examples of how the Web 2.0 technology can structure the way users share their memories in building a larger narrative around the archive.

Song, Gi-Ho ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 2, 2012, Pages 69~86
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.2.069
Collaboration between teacher librarians and parents is one of the very important elements for school library management in characteristics of learning communities and expanding its' administration. These partnerships are necessary to relieve stress and risk conditions and improve ego-resilience of students. This study analyzed cases of student guidance within the partnerships between teacher librarians and parents and then inquired into formal or informal communication channels for their partnerships through written interview with 10 teacher librarians. The results of analyses teacher librarians have appreciated the necessity of collaboration with parents, and they have experienced student guidance, career guidance, reader's advisory and balancing acts between classroom teachers and parents. It turns out that reading programs with parents are formal communication channel rather than institutional committee such as School Library Council and Parents' Library-Assisting Volunteers and Parent Association and Training in the school library are informal communication channels. The teacher librarians also provide periodic reading events and training for parents and they utilize the School Homepage and Educational Newsletters as the main ways of public relation. In order to promote students' ego-resilience through their collaboration, parents should involve in School Library Council as an essential way for formal communication. And parents' role in school library management should be expanded from offering helping hands to activities to read book, library instruction, assisting teacher librarians in the Library-Assisted Instruction and production of teaching mediums.

Cho, Chan-Sik ; Rhee, Hey-Young ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 2, 2012, Pages 235~253
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.2.235
The library circulation service, which refers to the lending of library material outside of the library, is a basic and essential service provided by the library. However, changes in the library circulation service are being made according to a more management-oriented operation and the development of information technology. Consequently, the library faces a paradigm shift 'from library-centered service' to 'user-oriented service' and experiences changes in library circulation service due to the growth of library networks. Also, each library, in order to respond to the changes, tries to specialize the library circulation service by utilizing available library resources. In that context, this study, through the case study of the "Chack DanBi" library circulation service of Eunpyeong Public Library, investigates and analyzes the changing library circulation service according to the above perspectives; seeks the meaning of the service; and aims at enhancing our understanding of the library circulation service.

To achieve this, four public libraries in Seoul according to the managing entities were investigated. They consisted of libraries of public corporations, cultural centers, foundations and universities. Minimum service quality level, desired service quality level and perceived service quality was analyzed based on nine-point Lickertis scale. A survey was employed and consisted of twenty-two items. The results showed that current level of service met the minimum level, yet failed to reach their desired service level. The study suggested that public libraries contracting out to private sector need to actively apply users' demands and the changing environment of libraries, and continue to strive to provide public library users with high quality service through efforts of evaluating and improving the services for their users.
