The Trend of Cataloging Rules for Digital Resources
Kim, Jeong-Hyen ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 34, issue 3, 2003, Pages 1~19
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2003.34.3.001
Due to rapid internet supply, the increase of electronic resources including network resources, and the appearance of metadate, there has been a sudden change in cataloguing fields. To deal with rapid changes, the related organizations such as IFLA are organizing the research team and revising rules. This study analyzes current trend of cataloguing digital resources, considering recent matters in regards with the revision of ISBD(ER), AACR2R 2002 edition, MARC 21, Dubin Core, KCR4 etc. This research discusses also the questions of how digital resources are organized; automatic indexing, matadata, and MARC format.

Journal of Information Management, volume 34, issue 3, 2003, Pages 21~39
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2003.34.3.021
This study aims to evaluate the quality of Bibliographic database : The Union Catalog system(UNICAT) and Korean Library Information System Network(KOLIS-NET). The seven criteria(Coverage, Accuracy, Completeness, Currentness, Consistency on the quality of data itself and easy of use, Customer Support on the quality of database service) are used to measure their quality. The purpose of this study was dignose the quality of two bibliographic database mentioned above and analyses the measured result of quality comparatively and to find out the problems of them and also to provide possible suggestion for their improvements.
A Study on the Utility of Library Catalogs in the Digital Environments

With the rapid and broad changes of information ecology human information activity is moving toward a new pattern-networking. Various types of information networks are being constructed over the world, and through the networks various forms and contents of information are being flowed or transferred. Under these circumstances a serious question could arise regarding whether the present cataloging principles and practices are right and appropriate for the so-called `digital network generation of library users`. This study was developed to explore this question. Especially, this study conducted an analysis on the utility of library catalog with an emphasis on the perspectives of library users. As a result, it turned out that the quality of library catalogs produced by Korean universities was in a very low standard. The degree of satisfaction on the quality was very low, particularly among library users. In conclusion, this study made several suggestions on the cataloging policy and practices: both at the national level and the unit library level.
Effects Analysis of Electronic Journal Subscription on Special Library Operation : A Case Study in KIST
Kang, Dae-Shin ; Shin, Yong-Su ; Shin, Mal-Suk ; Yoon, Hyea-Jeong ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 34, issue 3, 2003, Pages 69~85
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2003.34.3.069
This case study analyzed how electronic journal subscription had an effect on special library management including budget, information behavior, library operations, facilities, space et al. in KIST. This study suggests the followings; 1) Since electronic journals has an effect on overall operations of special libraries, draw big pictures not by functions. 2) Though the most method for subscription is consortium, it is necessary to build cooperation network for information sharing and vary cost architecture of information use. 3) Through job analysis, redesign jobs. 4) Reconstruct stacks and facilities. 5) It is necessary paradigm shift that it is more important to use than preserve materials in the special libraries.
A Study on the Ontology Languages and Application Systems for the Semantic Web
Jeong, Do-Heon ;

Continual attempts to accumulate and apply information eventually gave birth to the concept of the "Semantic Web". Thus, the "Semantic Web" can be defined as a product of mankind`s desire to standardize information. At the same time, the term provides "a method that standardizes mankind`s concept of linguistical expression", and can be noted as an effort to combine such methods into a standard web environment that may materialize to form a catalogue. This study introduced RDF schema, ontology languages for the semantic web, and ontology-based systems. The purpose of the study was to construct a system based on the semantic web environment`s ontology by utilizing the ontology schema derived from the facettype Art and Architecture Thesaurus(AAT). The aforementioned ontology schema is based on the Web Ontology Language(OWL), which is being widely considered the standard ontology language for the W3C-centered semantic web environment.
