DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2015.26.4.031
This research was based on the investigation of the awarenesses of librarians of issues regarding the privacy of the users of school libraries. It sought to determine if, by raising the issue of the importance of the need for the protection of the personal information of the users of the school libraries, and the implications of not paying attention to the rules in effect, the awareness regarding the privacy of the users of school libraries would be improved. For this, previous research related to the privacy of the students, the legal basis for the protection of the privacy of the domestic and foreign students, and the types of the infringements upon the protection of their personal information were investigated. A survey was conducted to measure the awareness of issues related to the privacy of the users of the library. The research showed the results as follows: First, the awarenesses regarding the privacy of the users of the school libraries appeared low, and low recognition was also found regarding the awareness of the cases of the infringements upon the privacy of the users of the school libraries; regarding the awareness in relation to the protection of privacy; regarding the seriousness of the privacy problems of the users; and regarding the factors that can encroach upon the privacy of the users. Second, regarding the seriousness felt when the library records of the users of the school libraries are leaked to the outside, 41.6% of the respondents responded by saying "It is serious", and 18.4% responded by saying "It is not serious". Third, as a result of investigating the awareness regarding whether the consent of the person concerned is needed in case a third party requests access to reading the records in the library, 68.5% of the respondent responded "It is needed", and only 10.4% responded "It is not needed". Last, in the investigation into whether the respondents had the experience of being educated as to the rules related to the privacy of the users at a school or an external organization, over 80% of the respondents answered that they did not receive it.
A Study on After-Reading Activity by Types of Multiple Intelligences
Lim, Seong-Gwan ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 26, issue 4, 2015, Pages 65~82
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2015.26.4.065
This study tries to discuss the problems of reading education based on the theory of multiple intelligences and after reading activity. For the theory of multiple intelligences, Dr. Howard Gardner asserted eight types of multiple intelligences under the presupposition the anyone had infinite ability. He analyzed and applied reading education by types of multiple intelligences and proposed a new program for the reading education aiming to evenly promote children`s various intelligences and heighten their creativities. The purpose of the new program is to have children throw away the idea that they should perfect their resultants in reading education time, develop their own strong intelligences through various experiences and processes and complement their lacking abilities. To prove the validity of the program I made FGI (Focus Group Interview) to the sample group consisting of child reading education experts. Analyzing the interview showed that the general idea of the group corresponded to the researcher`s expectation effect. I see that reading education has one-dimensionally developed significance if it enables all the children of the present and the future not to have the oppressive feeling that they should produce masterpieces in reading education but to take pleasure in the activities and improve their own abilities.

Cho, Jane ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 26, issue 4, 2015, Pages 105~121
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2015.26.4.105
PDA model is new collection development method not only corresponding user`s demand, but also expensing acquisition budget effectively. In the PDA model, when the trigger that indicates user`s demand reaches up to treshold, e-book is automatically purchased without librarian`s interrogation. This study examines concept, basic principles, and current condition of operation about PDA and finds a way that could applicate to Korean university library foreign E-book consortium. Current model of university library e-book acquisition pursuit reduction of budget and utility value, but the selected collection is not based on user`s demand. Therefore, it could be considerable to apply PDA or evidence based purchase model to foreign e-book acquisition consortium.

Online education in the field of LIS has continued to spread out in university curricula or with collaborative online programs through consortia among universities. Unlike the traditional online education, however, MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) with the recent advent and advances have risen as a new paradigm in education of the future in that these are massive online learner-centered courses, free and open to any person with no limit on enrollment. With no exception to this phenomenon, the LIS field centered by overseas iSchool universities has been offering MOOCs for core LIS courses. This research conducted a case study of utilizing a part of overseas LIS MOOCs in a core LIS course at domestic University-A, in order to explore the potential for utilizing overseas MOOCs in LIS education. The results of conducting a survey and a focus group interview to students discovered that MOOCs content was interesting and useful and many of them were willing to take other MOOCs in the future, despite some language barriers. Based on these findings, this study suggested the need for establishing educational value, administering methods, ways to motivate students, and designing MOOCs by incorporating the characteristics of the LIS field, as ways to utilize MOOCs in LIS education.

Yi, Yong Jeong ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 26, issue 4, 2015, Pages 283~304
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2015.26.4.283
The purpose of this study was to identify Web accessibility issues of healthcare websites of the Korean government and public agencies by evaluating these websites` accessibility in accordance with the Korean Web Contents Accessibility Guideline. This study conducted both automated and expert testing to assess the accessibility of a total of 27 health-related websites. The results of the assessment which was conducted in two stages indicated that institutions such as the National Hospital and National Rehabilitation Center demonstrated almost no Web accessibility error. In addition, the Korea Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service, the Ministry of Health and Welfare, the Health Services Agency, the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, and the Korea Medical Dispute Mediation and Arbitration Agency attained very high web accessibility. However, the results of an expert evaluation highlighted that there were considerable errors in providing appropriate alternative text, which was not found in the automated test, and the color contrast of the text content did not comply with Web accessibility standard. Therefore, these websites did not support web accessibility for the sight-impaired. Furthermore, the present study found that it was difficult to deliver accurate information to users due to errors in the default language display and markup, and also, issues of skipping repeated content, content linearization, and compliance with keyboard use were considered as challenges that might arise for people with sight, cognitive and mobility impairments with respect to Web accessibility. It is the first study that evaluated accessibility of healthcare websites of the Korean government and public agencies based on the Korean Web Contents Accessibility Guideline. The present study made a contribution to research on Web accessibility by conducting expert testing, which provided a more complete assessment that identified the degree and specific issues of accessibility errors when compared to automated testing.
