Lee, So-Yeon ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 1, 2008, Pages 1~25

As scholarly information environment rapidly changes, library consortia for electronic journal licensing come to require strategies to better address service needs of member institutions as well as to take parts in more progressive initiatives. This study aims to develop a more future-oriented and progressive business model for electronic journal licensing consortia. The model is based on three pillars: strategies for responding to immediate needs; long-term strategies for leading change; and organizational infrastructure.

Electronic information, especially e-journals took their position as core resources in current scholarly communication. However, the publishing and pricing structure of e-journal licensing process have not yet succeeded to be reorganized in accord with newly changed electronic scholarly communication environment. That resulted in a lot of challenges scholarly communication now faced. This study aimed to analyze key issues regarding big deal, pricing, licensing, archiving, copyright and public access by conducting comprehensive literature review and examining movements of world wide scholarly institutes and alliances. And then this study eventually purposed to draw some strategies which domestic libraries and consortia should take in order to lead current changes in scholarly communication.

Increasing researcher's demand on electronic journals as the most important research resource, libraries have made effort to develop electronic journals efficiently with cooperating through consortium. However, Korean electronic journal consortium are leaded by representatives and e-journal contents providers rather than library members. KESLI has the largest members in Korean libraries consortium and is needed to identify the key issues of KESLI consortia by these stakeholders. This study suggests to develop a future business model for KESLI analyzing KESLI stakeholder's expectation and needs by focused group interview.

Park, Hyun-Young ; Nam, Tae-Woo ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 1, 2008, Pages 83~108
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.1.083
This thesis investigated disabled students' actual status of applying for university libraries. This thesis investigated how many times the university disabled students utilized the libraries, if facilities, apparatuses, materials, and regular employees were operated properly, and if they were established actually on the target at thirty private university libraries located at Seoul and Gyeonggi regions in operation of specially screening the objective students for special education in 2008. The investigation found that the general operation level of university libraries for disabled students were less than "medium"(average 2.38). As for utilization ratio, the most university students responded that "they didn't utilize libraries so many times(60%)". As for the response ratio of university library facilities and services, the most university students responded, "very insufficient", 99 items(32.27%), and the least university students responded, "very excellent", 28 items(7.0%). On the other hand, as for the analysis of each field, building facilities, in all of the items, were established more than "medium"(average 3.26), but material preparation level(average 1.8 point), employee education for softly supporting disabled students, and library utilization education on the target at disabled students(average 1.87) were less than "insufficient". Especially, the field of service was "insufficient level"(average 2.48), and standard deviation was more than 1.4. Manpower stationing and material delivery services have the biggest standard deviation between universities. So, this investigation found that university libraries reformed access to facilities a lot, but that its level of fundamental policy for library, such as materials, manpower, and the education on utilization, were in insufficient level.

Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 1, 2008, Pages 109~129
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.1.109
This study was prepared for the purpose of suggesting the reasonable method of library management by reflecting it to the library acquisition and collection development through the user survey and analysis of an academic library. The 97,164 circulation records of C-academic library which were occurred between March 2006 and February 2007 were used, and sixteen subjects by five user groups ((1)undergraduate, (2)graduate students, (3)faculties(professors), (4)staffs, and (5)the other users) were surveyed for the study. The subject and the number of publication lapse year were categorized in this study. The non-parametric method and correlation coefficient were used for the analysis of subject part after the use factor and the number of publication lapse year were crossed by their status. Also, the same methods by use factor were used for the analysis of the number of year part.

Yook, Sang-Ok ; Kang, Jin-Baik ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 1, 2008, Pages 131~149
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.1.131
The purpose of this study is to suggest faculty status for academic librarians in Korea. This will assure the efficient use of academic librarians as human resources for university libraries. To do this, this study reviewed precedent literaturer. Also, the study looked at qualified academic librarians that could be endowed faculty status. Questionnaires were performed and opinions between professor groups and librarian groups were compared. On every question, the two groups responded positively although there were some differences in agreement level on the above questions. Endowing faculty status to academic librarians, who work in university libraries, acts as a motivation, will help to increase the ability of librarians, and increase service quality. This will eventually contribute developing better education and research.

DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.1.177
This research focused on the major determinants for the technology roadmap utilization of the R&D project after the adoption of the technology roadmap in the R&D intensive organization. The study was performed based on both theoretical study and qualitative case study approaches. The results of this study are summarized as in cases where the R&D project team has higher organizational capability - specifically, relation and research capability, even more technology roadmap is used. In terms of the needs of times, this study regarding the technology roadmap utilization is anticipated to be a good reference for the R&D-oriented organizations and technology-related studies in coming years.

CrossRef provides a various queries(OpenAPIs) which can be used for DOI & meta data lookup. CrossRef encourages publishers and library societies to develop diverse system by using the queries. In this thesis, CrossRef's queries are analyzed and DOI Lookup API which could automatically lookup the DOI by various methods was developed. I proposed that how institutions having their own meta data can use the developed API.
