Cho, Chul-Hyun ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 26, issue 1, 2015, Pages 135~170
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2015.26.1.135
This study aimed to investigate the transition of academic libraries` jobs by developing a model based on a shift of library generations including Library 1.0, Library 2.0, and Library 3.0 corresponding to the shift of web generations and to explore generational characteristics of library duties as well. The research used three phases of procedure: literature review about different library generations; job analyses for academic libraries in South Korea and the U.S.A.; the Delphi technique in tree sequential order. The research findings were as follows. First of all, there were 170 duties that continued from Library 1.0 to Library 3.0. There were 58 duties which continued from Library 2.0 to Library 3.0 whereas three duties that continued from Library 1.0 to Library 2.0. In addition, three distinctive duties existed only in Library 1.0 whereas one unique duty was only in Library 2.0. Library 3.0 generated 25 new duties. Secondly, considering general characteristics which cover specific parts of individual duties, there was a significant increase in importance, difficulty, and frequency of library administration throughout the three generations. In terms of importance, difficulty, and frequency of collection development and management, there was a significant increase only from Library 2.0 to Library 3.0. Considering information organization, there was a significant decrease in importance from Library 1.0 to Library 2.0. In addition, there was a significant decrease in frequency and there was no significant difference in difficulty throughout the three generations. In the case of information service, while there was a significant increase in importance among three generations, there was a significant increase in difficulty only from Library 1.0 to Library 2.0. However, there was no generational difference in frequency. With the respect of information system development and management, there was a significant increase in importance and frequency throughout the three generations, but there was no significant difference in difficulty among three generations.

Cho, Su-Yeon ; Park, Sung-Jin ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 26, issue 1, 2015, Pages 171~198
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2015.26.1.171
This study used social discourse analysis and analyzed social discourse on library reflected in media, social media, interview and diary of persons concerned, particularly focusing on controversy over whether `The Forest of Wisdom` should be called a `library`. The study analyzed a three-dimensional framework, including media report that eventually developed a social `discourse event`, social media surrounding this issue, and interview with persons in the library community and publishing industry regarding discourse. This study draws a conclusion that `The Forest of Wisdom` rather led social discourse over the role of library especially when traditional library is faced with new demands for discourse and changes. It is meaningful in that this issue provided an opportunity for library and the publishing industry to think over and develop ways for autonomous discourse that seeks their true value.
An Investigation on Image Needs and Contexts in Image Search Failure
Chung, EunKyung ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 26, issue 1, 2015, Pages 199~215
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2015.26.1.199
As a way of identifying users` image needs for improved effectiveness of image search, there have been recent research approaches to examine contextual factors in image needs with multiple perspectives. In this line of research, this study examined a total of 70 unsuccessful image searches for the purpose of investigating users` image needs. In order to achieve the purpose of this study, in particular, the characteristics of image needs, contextual factors on image needs, and image queries were investigated. The findings of this study demonstrated that information needs from the failed image searches are categorized primarily into specific and general/nameable categories. More importantly, these information needs are embedded with multiple contextual factors, primarily, task purpose and use purpose. With an analysis of detailed use purposes for image, illustration use was found most in this data set. For query analysis, the type of unique/refined image query was revealed primarily. As the results of this study were found similar to the findings of previous studies, it is possible to characterize the image needs from the failed image searches. In addition, the findings of this study are expected to be useful to the design and service of image retrieval.
Inferring Undiscovered Public Knowledge by Using Text Mining Analysis and Main Path Analysis: The Case of the Gene-Protein `brings_about` Chains of Pancreatic Cancer
Ahn, Hyerim ; Song, Min ; Heo, Go Eun ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 26, issue 1, 2015, Pages 217~231
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2015.26.1.217
This study aims to infer the gene-protein `brings_about` chains of pancreatic cancer which were referred to in the pancreatic cancer related researches by constructing the gene-protein interaction network of pancreatic cancer. The chains can help us uncover publicly unknown knowledge that would develop as empirical studies for investigating the cause of pancreatic cancer. In this study, we applied a novel approach that grafts text mining and the main path analysis into Swanson`s ABC model for expanding intermediate concepts to multi-levels and extracting the most significant path. We carried out text mining analysis on the full texts of the pancreatic cancer research papers published during the last ten-year period and extracted the gene-protein entities and relations. The `brings_about` network was established with bio relations represented by bio verbs. We also applied main path analysis to the network. We found the main direct `brings_about` path of pancreatic cancer which includes 14 nodes and 13 arcs. 9 arcs were confirmed as the actual relations emerged on the related researches while the other 4 arcs were arisen in the network transformation process for main path analysis. We believe that our approach to combining text mining analysis with main path analysis can be a useful tool for inferring undiscovered knowledge in the situation where either a starting or an ending point is unknown.

Lee, Eunjung ; Kim, Giyeong ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 26, issue 1, 2015, Pages 233~257
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2015.26.1.233
The aim of this study is to analyze the impact of step-by-step educational comic book behavior of the elementary school students and their reading levels on their learning competencies. To this end, qualitative research with focus group and deep interviews was conducted with students on different reading levels. During their repetitive reading activities, the students tended to use various educational comics within the same subjects area on their corresponding reading levels. Such behavior led the students to further read other books than comics in the similar subjects areas, and by doing so, the books acted as an important reference to the students` class materials. It was found that the students` such behavior has positive impact on the improvement of their learning competencies. It is hoped that this study will be supportive to develop self-study methods and effective reading guidance plans by improving the usage of educational comics.
