Byun, Woo-Yeoul ; Lee, Byeong-Ki ; Song, Gi-Ho ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 2, 2013, Pages 31~47
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.2.031
The purpose of this study is to develop a measurement tool for self-image of the teacher librarian by semantic differential meaning scale and to analyse the correlation between their self-image and individual characteristics. This study suggests that the teacher librarians have regarded themselves as friendly, planned, sensitive and cooperative persons as well as persons with discernment. On the other hand, there are some negative self-images such as partial, poor and uninfluential persons plus disregarder and a reserved persons. The educational career of teacher librarians` background has influence on evaluation area of the self-image. This result shows that senior teacher librarians` role performance as a adviser or a leader is very important. So mediator role of KLA and KSLA has to be reinforced to beat the exchange and collaboration between the senior and the junior teacher librarians. It is necessary to appoint the teacher librarians obligatorily in oder to feel their professional security and sense of achievement, also to appreciate expertise of them through role clarification among the human resources of the school library.
Progress and Activation Strategies of Information Service in the School Library
Song, Gi-Ho ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 2, 2013, Pages 49~69
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.2.049
The purpose of this study is to analyze status of information service and to suggest its activation strategies after establishing its category in the school library. As a result of establishing scope and contents of information service, materials of information offering and guide are converged on reading education and information literacy curriculum integrated subjects. But the arrival rate of information service is very low like 48.2% under the 2012 Korean Libraries` Management Evaluation. It is especially poor to raise self resilience and school participation of students with information service involved in the affective domain such as readers` advisory service and bibliotherapy. In order to activate its information service, there is an urgent need for systems improvement in placement of the teacher librarian. It is also necessary to reinforce the status of information literacy instruction under the nation-level curriculum and continuous base expansion as a core information service of the school library. Service development for readers` advisory service and bibliotherapy is also needed to contribute to solving problem and stress situation of the student. The school library has to make an effort to connect its information service with local communities for the school community.

A Study on the Hangul Banggakbon Novels in the Harvard-Yenching Library
Lee, Hye-Eun ; Yoo, Choon-Dong ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 2, 2013, Pages 113~128
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.2.113
This study targets ten titles of Hangul banggakbon novels in the Harvard Yenching Library to examine the bibliography, system, and characteristics. Among the ten titles, gyeongpanbon Guunmong, Leehaeryongjeon, Chunhyangjeon, Janggyeongjeon, two titles of Sodaeseongjeon, Honggildongjeon, anseongpanbon Yangpungunjeon, and two titles of wanpanbon Hwaryongdo have been found in Korea, too. However, gyeongpanbon Chunhyangjeon, 30 jangbon of Hyogyosingan(孝橋新刊), and wanpanbon Hwaryongdo seogyeseopobon are the ones that can be hardly found in Korea, and the library has possessed it there so far. With the two titles of Hangul banggakbon novels, it will be needed to reexamine the aspects of publishing Hangul banggakbon novels afterwards. Hangul banggakbon novels that Harvard-Yenching Library has now are mostly the ones that can be easily found in Korea, too. It is because the data started to be collected from the 1950`s. In comparison with the materials in England, Russia, or Japan in the early 1890`s, there are no rare books that cannot be found in Korea. The reason for this may be found from this.

The libraries of local councils contribute to realize democracy and promote national interests and the welfare of the people, by supporting democratic legislation activities and congressional politics of the local councilors. This study analyzes the libraries of local councils at 17 regional local governments, and it confirms that there are various deviations in their library services such as material acquisitions and legislative information services by regional groups. On the basis of that analysis, the study summarizes the ways for improving the service qualities of the libraries of local councils as follows. First, it is necessary to organize the institute for national council materials. Second, the cooperative network systems should be constructed to share council publications. Third, the provisions related the copyright law and the national assembly library act have to be modified. Fourth, the libraries of local councils share their own materials focusing on digital publications. Fifth, the National Assembly Library expands their legislative information services to the libraries of local councils.

DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.2.151
The purpose of this study was to perform research on the development of core course textbooks in the LIS field. The process of textbook development proposed in this study can also be a useful reference for developing the textbooks for other, non-core courses. The textbook development procedure used was as follows; 1) investigating and analyzing the main textbooks of LIS core courses domestically and abroad, 2) deriving optimal curriculum content from job analysis results, 3) gathering comment and feedback from professors teaching core courses, 4) proposing a final, three-tiered table of contents for an optimal textbook. The textbook table of contents proposed as a result of this research relates to the core subjects of: Introduction to Library and Information Science, Information Services, Library Management, Information Organization, Information Retrieval, and Library Fieldwork. We suggested chapter and section levels for all subjects, and list all of the details that should be dealt with in each section; instructors are then able to select from these options at their discretion.
A Study on the Comparative Analysis of the Description Rules of ISBD and KCR4
Lee, Mihwa ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 2, 2013, Pages 185~203
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.2.185
This study was to suggest the new rules for revision of KCR4 by comparing between ISBD consolidated edition and KCR4. The study methods was to compare the rules in each element after mapping the description elements in each area of ISBD and KCR4. Resultingly, first, content forms and media types must be included for describing resource types. Second, it is needed for rules about the common title and the dependent title. Third, it is needed for rules about "parallel" such as parallel title, parallel other title information, parallel statement of responsibility relating to title, parallel edition statement, parallel statement of responsibility relating to edition, parallel numbering system, parallel place of publication, production and distribution, et. al. Fourth, the rules about material or type of resource specific area must be regulated in terms of the contents of the resource. Fifth, the home country principle must be not applied in describing the place of publication, production and distribution for the consistency. Sixth, it is needed to regulate the extent, other physical details, dimensions, and accompanying material statement for all materials instead of the material description according to material types. Seventh, rule number of notes must be agreed to number of main rules. Eighth, it is needed for detailed rules about resource identifier. This study might be contributed to revise the KCR4.

Academic libraries are trying to develop fully mobile web sites and mobile applications so that users can access to their services even using mobile devices. As the mobilization trends of library services increase in quantity, we need to more focus on what mobile services users want, ultimately for the growth with quality. This study seeks to explore users` needs and uses of mobile library services and then suggests solutions for improving the mobile services in academic libraries. This study conducted on and off-line surveys with 608 students from two universities, which have provided active mobile services with both a mobile web site and an application. The questionnaire was designed to elicit information on respondents` frequency of mobile library visit, the purpose of visit, the reason to use/not use, how to access to the services, the preferred types of the services, satisfaction and dissatisfaction factors, and urgently needed improvements. Based on the findings, this study discussed strategies to improve the quality of mobile services and to increase in users` visit.

Current Usage and Proliferation of Library 2.0 from User Viewpoint: Focusing on Folksonomy
Kim, Sungwon ; Kim, Jeongwoo ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 24, issue 2, 2013, Pages 269~288
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2013.24.2.269
The development of IT (information technology) has brought about many types of new services, and the traditional sectors such as libraries and information management fields have actively applied new technology to improve the quality of their services. Many of these newly developed services are described under the term `Web 2.0`, in the sense they are next-generation forms of services, and this coinage is duplicated in the term `Library 2.0`, specifically referring to the library services equipped with Web 2.0 technology. Active acceptance of advanced IT to library services is very important to enhance the value and role of library in this rapidly changing information environment. So far, libraries in Korea and abroad have already been putting a lot of efforts and resources to develop and provide technically advanced services. Despite these efforts, it is found that some of these new services have failed to attract users` attention and interest, resulting in the low rates of usage. This study, therefore, reviews current state of the "Folksonomy" based services provided in Korean college libraries as a type of Library 2.0 services, and assess their usage rates. The result of this evaluation is then used to develop a guideline to improve and mobilize the use of such services.
