A Study on Analysis of Research Trends about Classification in Korea
Chang, Yun-Mee ; Chung, Yeon-Kyoung ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 1, 2013, Pages 25~44
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.1.025
The purpose of this study was to analyze the trends of Classification Studies in Korea from 205 research articles in five scholarly journals in Library and Information Science during the period 1986-2011. Individual article was analyzed in the aspects of specific research topics, research methodologies, data collection & analysis, and the characteristics of classification research was suggested. The amount of research paper has increased during the period and the focus of the study was on practical use and most of the papers were about new classification schedules or modification of current classification systems. Most of the papers were literature research and comparative research on classification systems by professors or graduate students. Top 9 authors in classification research were professors or lecturers and a few authors were computer science major. Therefore, various research topics, research methodologies and collaborations with other disciplines are necessary for future classification research.
A Study on the Construction Methods for Author Identification System of Research Outcome based on ORCID
Cho, Jane ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 1, 2013, Pages 45~62
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.1.045
Since research articles aren't be fixed in particular system, author name of articles have been handled not by authority control but by unique identifier. While unique identifier has a tendency that moves toward open-transparent global link system, lately ORCID has been initiated. ORCID is not only link diverse existing ID system as a partner, for example, publisher's ID systems, university's research assessment systems, manuscript tracking systems but also let researchers self-claim by themselves to identify their own articles. Though, since ORCID run based on overseas' publications, it is not appropriate to adapt ORCID shortly to Korean researcher's identification. So this study suggests the direction of domestic researcher's identification system by applying ORCID.
A Study on Taoist Literatures Including in Annotated Classified Bibliographies in Joseon Dynasty
Lee, Sang-Yong ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 1, 2013, Pages 63~81
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.1.063
This study analyzed the annotations of Taoist literatures in "Haedong-munheon-chongnok", "Gyujang-chongmok", "Nupango" and "Hongssi-dokseorok", which were annotated classified bibliographies compiled in Joseon Dynasty. Based on the analyses, the study explored the perspectives from which the annotations were written since Taoism was considered to be heretical from a Confucian point of view. With respect to writing the annotations of Taoist literatures, it was general that the annotations were written objectively about Taoism, rather than relying on a Confucian perspective. Yet, Hong Seok Ju, who wrote "Hongssi-dokseorok" clearly expressed his opinions about the pros and cons of Taoism. Overall, it would be well appreciated that the annotated bibliographies in Joseon Dynasty retained objectivity in Taoist literatures regarded as heresy at that time.
Correlation Between Public Library Service User Satisfaction and Loyalty and Moderator Variables
Lee, Seongsin ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 1, 2013, Pages 83~103
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.1.083
According to the results from the recent research in Business field, the correlation between customer satisfaction and customer loyalty is not strong. Based on this understanding, the first purpose of this study was to investigate the correlation between public library service user satisfaction and public library service user loyalty. To achieve this purpose, the study conducted a survey of 240 public library users. The findings of this study are 1) the correlation between 'public library service user satisfaction' and 'public library service user loyalty' exists. However the strength of the correlation is moderate, 2) the correlation between 'public library service user satisfaction' and 'public library service users' intention to use new library services' is the weakest among the variables of 'public library service user loyalty', and 3) the correlation between 'public library service user satisfaction' and 'public library service users' intention to recommend library services to others is the strongest among the variables of 'public library service user loyalty'. The second purpose of this study was to find the moderator variables between public library service user satisfaction and public library service user loyalty. According to the study results, the following moderate variables are found: 1) physical accessibility, 2) lack of diversity in library service, 3) car-parking issues, 4) lack of diversity and recency in collections, and 5) lack of convenience in facilities.
A Study on the Management and Improvement of Library Ordinances in Lower Tier Governments
Joung, Hyuntae ; Jung, Miyeun ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 1, 2013, Pages 105~122
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.1.105
It was examined that library-related ordinances enacted by local governments in nationwide were all 321 cases. Among them, the library management ordinance(185 cases, 57.6%) is the most common, small library ordinance(54 cases, 16.8%), Saemaeul mobile library ordinance(24 cases, 7.5%), reading promotion ordinance(29 cases, 9.0%), other ordinances(29 cases, 9.0%), such as the order was followed. Since 1996, the local government system was carried out in earnest, library ordinances each year continues to increase. Saemaeul mobile library ordinances was enacted primarily in the 1990s, small library ordinances and reading promotion ordinances have been increasing rapidly since 2009. In order to clarify the purpose of the ordinances, the term 'library' should be included in the title. It is suggested that the library-related ordinances in a local government, such as public library ordinance, small library ordinance, Saemaeul mobile library ordinance, and reading promotion ordinance, are better be integrated for consistent implementations of library policies.

DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.1.123
The purpose of this study was to provide practical support methods of the library education and cultural programs for people with physical disabilities through the qualitative investigation. To collect data, focus group and individual interviews were conducted. Fourteen people with physical disabilities and six parents were interviewed. From the qualitative analysis, three themes and thirteen subthemes were emerged: (1) cognition about library, (2) difficulties of using the library, (3) support methods for activating library use. Finally, discussions, implications and future directions of library education and cultural programs for people with physical disabilities were presented based on the results of the study. We expect that this research can serve as a basis for further effort to develop library education and cultural programs suited for the unique needs of people with physical disabilities.
A Study on the Structural Characteristics of Collaborative Network with Small Libraries: Focus on Bucheon Region
Lee, Jeong-Ho ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 1, 2013, Pages 149~169
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.1.149
This exploratory study analyzed the structure of collaborative network among small libraries. The survey was conducted with the small libraries in Bucheon region. In order to analyze the structural features of the network, this study used social network analysis methods. The results of the study indicate that public small libraries has high density networks with other small libraries and performed a central role in the whole network. Private small libraries were, however, isolated in the whole network indicating their weak collaboration with other small libraries.

The purpose of this study for coming up with vitalization methods of small libraries by attracting corporate donations, in order to overcome inferior financial circumstances of small libraries in daily life that play a role community centers in regional communities. For this, a frequency analysis was conducted in order to examine various circumstances and cognitions regarding library donations from 100 corporations that made donations during the past year. Also, a cross-tabulation analysis was studied to identify factors that influence donations.
An Analysis of Literature Trends in Green Library
Ahn, In-Ja ; Kwak, Chul-Wan ; Noh, Younghee ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 1, 2013, Pages 189~205
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.1.189
The purpose of this study is to describe the trends and contents of literature in green library and to suggest the research direction on green library. Earlier studies focus on the green library architecture and necessity, after then green library management studies have proliferated. Green library architecture studies have emphasized on 'energy and atmosphere' and 'indoor environmental quality' based upon 5 categories of LEED evaluation system. Green library management studies have focused on library resources recycling and utilizing energy through effective management of library collection. Based on the analysis of literature, five research directions are suggested, such as the number of libraries in an area, library shelf position and space, library space program, collection ratio for library storage, and user studies.

Seo, SunKyung ; Chung, EunKyung ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 1, 2013, Pages 207~228
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.1.207
Due to the advance of scholarly communication, the field of open access has been studied over the last decade. The purpose of this study is to analyze and demonstrate the field of open access via co-word analysis. The data set was collected from Web of Science citation database during the period from January 1998 to July 2012 using the Topic category. A total of 479 journal articles were retrieved and 8,643 noun keywords were extracted from the titles and abstracts. In order to achieve the purpose of this study, network analysis, clustering analysis and multidimensional scaling mapping were used to examine the domain and the sub-domains of open access field. 18 clusters in the network analysis are recognized and 4 clusters are shown in the map of multidimensional scaling. In addition, the centrality analysis in the weighted networks was used to explore the significant keywords in this field. The results of this study are expected to demonstrate and guide the intellectual structure and new approaches of open access field.
A Study on the Relative Importance of Each Criterion in the E-Journal Consortium Process Using AHP
Park, Sungjae ; Kim, Jayhoon ; Lee, Yong-Gu ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 1, 2013, Pages 229~247
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.1.229
The purpose of this study is to improve the effectiveness of the e-journal process in libraries and information organizations by identifying the relative priority of each criterion in the e-journal consortium. To identify criteria in the process, this study employed a content analysis of previous studies on e-journal and consortium. A total of 73 criteria were found, and these were classified into three categories and 21 sub-categories. Then, the relative weight of each criterion was calculated using an AHP technique. This technique is one of useful tools for collecting experts' opinions. The AHP findings indicated that the cost of the e-journal was the most important criterion in the e-journal consortium. This is followed in priority by users' needs, usage statistics, and others. Using these findings, librarians and information professionals might be able to identify priorities in the e-journal work process, and to improve the effectiveness of the process.
A Study on the Copyright Issues about Performing Arts Records
Lee, Ho-Sin ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 1, 2013, Pages 249~268
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.1.249
This paper investigates the copyright problems faced in the process of collecting Performing Arts Records by the Performing Arts Institutions and the Performing Arts Archives. For this, first, the collected records at the scene of performing arts were classified. Secondly, the copyright problems were judicially analyzed based on the classification drawn. As a result, first, the copyright itself constitutes very complicated copyright systems since performing arts are thought to have characteristics of comprehensive arts, reborn with an artistic work from various fields such as music, stage and costumes. Secondly, the documentaries produced in the theater scene subsequently leads to another copyright problem which are different from one the copyright of the concert itself. Thirdly and lastly, this paper revealed that the copyright issues can be variously constituted according to record type and the substantial production body.
A Study on the Work Types of Chinese Bibliographic Records Based FRBR Model in the National Library of China
Dong, Gui-Cun ; Kim, Jeong-Hyen ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 1, 2013, Pages 269~286
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.1.269
This study analysed work types of Chinese bibliographical records based on FRBR model to identify how many useful data there are in bibliographical records and how much difference in usefulness there is according to themes. For the purposes, the study randomly extracted samples of 2,200 Chinese books with 100 cases of 22 kinds from "Chinese Library Classification" through National Library of China's OPAC, targeting Chinese books collected by the National Library of China to analyse the work types of Chinese bibliographical records and their usefulness in application of the FRBR model according to themes and data types. The results are summarized as follows: Firstly, in applying the FRBR model for Chinese bibliographical records, 18.6% was considered as useful works for which simple work was added to complex work. Secondly, although it is a fact that usefulness is higher as bibliographical relations are more complex, only works by famous people collected in 'Marxism-Leninism'(A) and some classics and modern masterpieces collected in 'Literature'(I) have diverse versions of works such as sequels, revision, reproduction, adaptation, and critical books. However, if criticism, review, explanation and bibliographical introduction are included in specific subjects of 'Military'(E), 'Language and Words'(H), 'Literature'(I) and 'Comprehensive Book'(Z), it was clear that their usefulness is relatively high.
