Baek, Ji-Won ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 4, 2012, Pages 5~24
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.4.005
The aim of this study is 1) to analyse the historical development and current condition of the subject based classification(SBC), 2) to clarify the function and to categorize the specific kind of SBC, for its conceptualization and the development plan. For this purpose, almost 30 cases, for the period 1937 through now, were analyzed concerning their terms used in the names and the specific kinds as SBC. In addition, the analysis was made regarding how the SBC fulfill the selected main functions as a classificatory scheme and how SBC is inter-related with the other knowledge organization systems(KOS) such as classification and subject heading. Based on the above analysis, the conclusion addressed that SBC could be defined in consideration of the detailed function, type, information environment, and interconnection among the KOS, and suggested the future development plan of SBC as a classification scheme.
A Study on the Metadata Authority Description Schema for the Interoperability of Authority Data
Lee, Hyewon ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 4, 2012, Pages 25~44
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.4.025
This study analyzed the current condition of authority control, introduced the MADS(Metadata Authority Description Schema) for authority data. MADS supports encoding an authority description for a agent(person, organization), event, term(topic, temporal entity, genre, geographic entity, hierarchical geographic entity, occupation) and defines main elements, subelements, and attributes using the XML schema language. Lastly, using the MADS's characteristics, this study proposed the effective use plans of interoperability of authority data.
A Study on the Roles of Academic Libraries for Open Access Journal Publishing: Focusing on the Academic Libraries Participated in COPE
Joung, Kyoung-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 4, 2012, Pages 45~69
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.4.045
This paper examined the roles of academic libraries in open access journal publishing in terms of monetary supports for publication. As a result, many academic libraries have participated in the cooperative programs such as COPE(Compact for Open-Access Publishing Equity) and
(The Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics) for authors to publish their research in open access journals. Also, 13 academic libraries in North America have set up the campus-based open access author funds individually. Most of academic libraries in participating COPE did not fund for research that have been published in the hybrid open access journals. In addition to publication funds, academic libraries provided authors or scholarly societies with such services as copyright negotiation, technological supports of the publication process, and the dissemination of open access publications.

Kim, Sungjin ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 4, 2012, Pages 71~91
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.4.071
As the smartphone market has expanded and university students in their twenties account for the largest portion of the market, university libraries need to provide mobile library services to keep up with students' growing demand in mobile services. The purpose of this study is to analyze the status and trends of mobile services in Korean university libraries. This study investigated mobile services of 434 university libraries in Korea and 114 ones which are members of ARL during the months of September and November in 2012. As a result, this study found that university libraries in Korea were offering 55 mobile Web and 29 mobile application services with 11.2 and 10.7 contents respectively. In addition, on the basis of the identified current problems, this study suggested further steps for developing and improving mobile services in Korean university libraries.
Wiki Usage of LIS Undergraduates for Collaborative Learning
Park, Sung Jae ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 4, 2012, Pages 93~108
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.4.093
The purpose of this study is to find any contradictions which arise with the use of Wiki in the classroom, and to address such contradictions in order to promote learning among LIS students. This study employed a multi-methodology, including Wiki usage analysis, and interviews with 12 students who participated in an LIS class. Observations revealed that group projects are common in academic classes. Interviewees agreed that their performance through collaborative efforts was higher than that through individually performed activities. However, there were no pre-experiences with Wiki in learning and task-oriented cooperation which gave rise to a controversy. In addition, even though a new technology, as a more advanced form, was suggested, students cooperated with their peers according to their tradition without using the recommended new technology. Therefore, students should be taught about Wiki usage and experience the effective learning which is available to them through collaboration with their peers. Additionally, LIS curriculum should incorporate relationship-oriented activities using Web 2.0 applications with the expectation of enhanced learning among students.

Oh, Sun Young ; Chung, Yeon-Kyoung ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 4, 2012, Pages 141~160
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.4.141
National libraries have an obligation to meet the information needs of users by collecting as many various materials as possible. As legal deposit accounts for the highest percentage of the collection building methods of national libraries, they are trying to encourage the legal deposit of the publishers. However, the rate of legal deposit for the most publishers are pretty low. Therefore, in this study, the improvement plans of legal deposit system for the purpose of helping legal deposit of national libraries improve smoothly has been investigated by identifying the problems with the legal deposit system that publishers had and by suggesting the matters that should be improved based on the recognition of legal deposit by publishers. The plans for the revitalization of legal deposit for the publishers are as follows: promoting factors of legal deposit systems such as scope, deadline, compensation, fine and legal deposit libraries, simplification of legal deposit procedures, set-up of automated online system for legal deposit and strengthening of the method for promoting and educating the legal deposit.
A Reflective Inquiry of the Qualification System and Jobs for the Teacher Librarian in Korea
Song, Gi-Ho ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 4, 2012, Pages 161~180
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.4.161
The international standard for the school library suggests that school librarians qualified for librarian and teacher should run the school library. And library assistants should support the teacher librarian to carry out a role as a teacher. Despite the difference of requirements, librarians without teachers' license are under the human resources for school library administration. Furthermore, the job description between the school librarian and librarian is not well-defined in Korea. The different requirements in the library standards and the school library related laws have led to weaken professionalism and social status of librarianship. The condition that teacher librarians are not in the school library have brought the pressure to overcome imperfect functions of the school library and unfairness of educational services. In order to solve these problems, it is necessary to strengthen teacher librarians' qualification system to improve their identity as educational subject specialist librarians. We ought to also build proper foundations of social recognition about librarianship through classifying the types of human resources in the school library into the teacher librarian, library paraprofessional and volunteers. Especially we should hold the job analysis based on administrator, teacher, service, leader, collaboration, and partner.

DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.4.369
This research analyzed the type of major research and support services provided by libraries in academic institutions. The research also investigated the awareness of users using the research and support services. We found that the awareness was influenced by users' major and status. In particular, prior usage of the services had statistically significant result depending on users' major and status. On the other hand, the rank of faculty members or the year of study for students were found to not have a significant influence on the general perception of the research support services. We also found that researchers require the support services in every stages of their study. In addition, the preference of training method and research guidance for such services differed by users' major.

Noh, Younghee ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 4, 2012, Pages 391~414
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.4.391
Despite the growth in public concern about health information, the ratio of users who can search for accurate and reliable health information sources has been found to be quite low. Public libraries, as the best contact point to general users, must provide training programs for improving health literacy so that users will have the ability to search and analyze health information, judge the accuracy and reliability of resources, and make informed health-related decisions. This study developed a health information literacy education program suitable for Korean public library users. The effectiveness of the training was measured after administering the program, and necessary improvements were identified. As a result, this study found the education program had the following effects: improved public library users' familiarity with CHI-related terms, improved users' ability to find CHI-related information resources on the Internet, and significantly improved knowledge about health-related websites and information sources. In addition, users expressed interest in seminars on a variety of health information sources in the public library and asked that CHI-related education be included in the library's regular programming. However, this research represented the first time CHI-related education for public library users was performed in Korea, and therefore many limitations were present in the education instructor, the diversity of subjects, and the methodology. Development of more advanced CHI-related education programs for users is still required.

Choi, Youngsil ; Rieh, Hae-Young ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 4, 2012, Pages 457~477
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.4.457
As the cases of merging and cooperation of archives and libraries increase abroad, research and discussions about integration of complex information services among information centers, such as archives, libraries and museums started to emerge. In a similar vein, the need for integrated cultural information centers are suggested in Korea as the museums encounter the need for expansion of contents, and libraries try to diversify their functions, yet regional public archives has not been established. In this context, the concept of 'Larchiveum(libraries + archives + museums)' was proposed as an alternative that integrates and provides various information functions and resources, and research related to this started to emerge. At present, however, the Larchiveum has not been realized, the specific pathway to realize this kind of institution need to be discussed. This study analyzes the functional characteristics and elements of archives, libraries and museums, and based on these, the functional requirements of the larchiveum are drawn, and are reflected on the Larchiveum's functional planning for space planning in this study.

Choi, Sanghee ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 23, issue 4, 2012, Pages 479~496
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2012.23.4.479
English is an important tool of information literacy in terms of global information sharing environment. This impacts readers advisory services of public libraries in many ways. In order to identify status of English reading programs in public libraries, this paper investigated 50 public librarries' services for non-English speakers in California, which has long history serving readers advisory services to them. As a result, it is suggested that public libraries have to play a key role to help adult users to be competent in English with English reading programs. Public libraries also need to support families to build English reading environment at home to expand reading activities in libraries. In addition, reading habit in mother tongue is also important for English reading ability, so public libraries consider to build a bridge between them to provide effective English reading programs.
