DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2016.27.1.005
This study attempts to suggest an improvement plan of the currently prescribed record classification standard table as the guidance to select and assess the public records of local governments. For this purpose, this study utilized the methodologies of literature review, survey, and experts` assessments. It investigated the current situation on unit tasks and preservation periods targeting major functions of `construction and architecture` in the record management standard table in the 9 provinces, and it also deduced the characteristics and problems of unit task and preservation period by comparing and analyzing the unit task and preservation period utilized in more than 3 provinces. Based on the results from the analysis on the current situation and comparison, this study deduced the new unit tasks and preservation periods. And the evaluation targeting practitioners and expertise was conducted, and then the revised design plan was finally presented 4 medium- function items, 18 small - function items operated in more than 4 provinces, 47 unit task items, which led to the total 69 items. This study can be utilized as a guidance for establishing the record management standard table based on the uniqueness and originality of public record of local governments and the task function and organization of institutions in the future.

DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2016.27.1.027
This study was designed to derive and propose the qualities, qualifications, duties, etc. needed for policy information librarians who work in the policy-related special libraries. To do this, literature related to professional librarians was analyzed comprehensively with respect to qualifications, qualities, duties presented and needed in domestic and international jobs sites. The information derived through this process was developed into a questionnaire and a survey conducted targeting as subjects specialized librarians in related fields. The results indicated that the highest required LIS degree for both policy information librarian and for policy related fields is a Master`s Degree. Additionally in investigating the importance of related career experience required for a policy information librarian, work related to policies reference services appeared to be the most important. On the issue of important qualities required of a policy information librarian, `outstanding policies related data navigation capabilities` was the highest, followed by `knowledge of information policy and knowledge of policy related resources`, `knowledge of the current trends of policies related fields`, and `smooth interpersonal skills.` The survey also indicated that with respect to the duties of the information librarian planning of policy information services had the highest score, followed by the providing of policies information services, and then collection management.
Meta-analysis on the Effect of Information Literacy Instruction
Kim, Seunghee ; Hong, Sehee ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 27, issue 1, 2016, Pages 59~85
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2016.27.1.059
The purpose of this study was to synthesize the effects of the information literacy instruction using meta-analysis. Results using random-effect models were as follows. First, the overall average effect size (ES) of information literacy instruction (Hedges`g) was 0.72, which could be interpreted based on Cohen`s guidelines as moderate to large. Second, the two types of information literacy instruction, demonstrating more than medium ESs, did not show significant differences in their ESs. Third, the ESs of information literacy instruction differed depending on the measuring variables. Fourth, grade, study design and the form of the measurement tool were moderator variables that explain the differences in ESs. In sum, the effects of information literacy instruction, having more than medium effect size, seem quite stable across instruction types and study designs.

Lim, Seong-Gwan ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 27, issue 1, 2016, Pages 87~110
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2016.27.1.087
In Korea, only a small study based on the bibliotherapy program for responsibility promotion of at risk or alienated youth has been performed. The purpose of this proposed study is to further examine the challenges and effects of a group bibliotherapy program on alienated youth to determine the degree of success in terms of "responsibility" and/or positive results. The current research program included a relatively small sample size of 11 young people (2 boys, 9 girls) in the Suwon Youth Center from November to December, 2015. The alienated youth program consisted of 8 sessions in the correct activity center with or having levels of insight, application, and verification measured using the Lee Sang Ro et al. (1989), Developmental Responsibility Examination (Scale of Responsibility). As a result, this study will confirm that the program to raise the level of alienated youth responsibility produces positive effects. These results will provide additional theoretical rationale and implications capable for applying "responsibility" education for alienated youth to the overall field encompassing youth education. Based on this, it will be necessary to extend various identified methods in depth to achieve this overall goal.
A Comparative Analysis on Cardiovascular Research in Korea and the United States
Lim, Ji Young ; Chung, EunKyung ;

DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2016.27.1.111
The purpose of this study is to investigate and compare the intellectual structure of cardiovascular research area in Korea and the United States. For the purpose of this study, a data set was collected; one journal Korean Circulation Journal is in Korea and two journals Circulation, and Circulation Research are in the United States. Based on the frequency of citation counts, 45 authors and 53 authors were selected for author co-citation analysis. By multidimensional scaling, clustering, and factor analyses, the results demonstrate that researchers in both countries commonly tend to work on several, rather than focus on certain sub-areas. In both countries, the core areas are revealed as `cardiovascular disease treatment`, `cardiovascular disease diagnose`, `cardiovascular disease fundamentals`, and `cardiovascular disease preventives`. One of distinctive differences between two is that research in Korea is likely to focus on clinical medicines while research in the United States tends to be on fundamental medicines. While the area of `Disorders of Rhythm` is revealed in Korea, `Pharmacology of the Cardiovascular System` area is found in the United States. In addition, the sub-areas of fundamental medicines such as `Epidemiology of Cardiovascular Disease`, `Biology`, `Biochemistry`, `Physiology` are revealed distinctively in the United States.

Humanities academia and scientific community have been fused together in 21st centurty and it creates new theories and models. Among them, the embodied cognition theory has received attention in several related fields. This study reviews the major metatheories in information user behavior with their limitations. Then, "Life paradigm information behavior model" is suggested as a new theory, which communsurates with new era`s request, introducing the embodied cognition theory and the entropy concept. By overcoming the limitations of individual approach to the information retrieval and user behaviors, we expect the discourse of the new integrated information retrieval paradigm.
A Study of Readers` Responses on Children`s Books about Multiculturalism: Focusing on the Children of Families with Immigration Background
Lim, Yeojoo ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 27, issue 1, 2016, Pages 237~261
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2016.27.1.237
This study analyzed readers` responses of children of families with immigration background on children`s literature that describes similar life experiences with the readers, based on Brooks & Browne`s Culturally Situated Reader Response Theory. Six children between 10 and 16 met the researcher three times each, and read along four different texts about multiculturalism in Korea. The texts include On the Road Together, a picture book, and three short stories in The Black Egg. Participating children showed various ethnic identities - identity as a Korean; identity as a foreigner; identity between a Korean and a foreigner; identity as a child of a multicultural (bicultural) family. The children empathized with the characters or showed their frustrations against racism portrayed in the texts. The four texts used in this study worked as a mirror that reflects each child`s own self, and further allowed the children to contemplate their own identities and speak out about their deepest thoughts and feelings. The children were dissatisfied with the main characters` powerlessness and depressing endings of the stories. They wanted the characters with immigration background to be positive and bright, and expected stories about peaceful relationship between children of families with immigration background and children with non-immigration background.

A Social Approach as a Metatheory to Understand Everyday Information Practices of the Disadvantaged
Koo, Joung Hwa ;
Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science, volume 27, issue 1, 2016, Pages 313~336
DOI : 10.14699/kbiblia.2016.27.1.313
The study reviews theoretical and empirical research literature in information needs, seeking and uses in order to search for the most pertinent metatheories for studying information practices of the disadvantaged. The study examines the salient features and main theories/models of each cognitive, affective and social approach in the user-centered paradigm through analyzing prior information practices studies. While analyzing the main features of each cognitive, affective and social approach, the study points out the limitation of research using the cognitive and affective approaches to fail to theorize the relationship between individuals and complex and dynamic socio-cultural contexts in information practices. As an alternative, the study suggests using the social approach as a pertinent metatheory for understanding information practices of the disadvantaged who are entangled with myriad social contexts and issues. In order to verify the pertinence, the study examines the advantages of the social approach through analyzing both the main models related to everyday information practices under social constructionism and the main findings from information practices of the disadvantaged.
