Journal of Information Management, volume 29, issue 1, 1998, Pages 1~19
With development in computing and networking technologies, national supports and attention for building digital library, which is to overcome the limits of time and location in using information resources, is increasing. To accomplish the main goal of digital library that is to freely share and transfer information on network, the importance of standardization in developing electronic document is increasing. Now several tools to develop electronic document, which will be used in digital library, are developed for electronic document used on WWW. But none of them has absolute advantages to other formats. Those tools, that is, have comparative advantages and disadvantages for making electronic documents. Through reviewing features and analyzing comparative advantage and disadvantage of SGML, HTML, and PDF, which will be used to develop electronic documents in digital libraries, this study focuses on their comparative advantages and disadvantages. With doing it, this study propose relevant type of electronic document formats to the types of information resources.

In order to index documents, a thesaurus which consists of terms and relationships between terms is used. When an index term is selected, retrieval performance in the information retrieval system could be improved by using the relationship between the terms in the thesaurus. Recently, the usage of a thesaurus are extended from information retrieval to language and knowledge engineering, but term relationships in a thesaurus are simply represented in equivalence, hierarchy, and association. Particularly the associative relationship is vague in its definition and range as compared with the other relationships, i.e. equivalence, hierarchy, therefore the terms that are selected through associative relationship aren't well controlled. This study examines the relationships of existing thesauri, especially the types and ranges of associative relationship, and suggests the adequate type of associative relationship.
