A Study on the User Behavior of Korean Defense R&D Researchers
Song, Jong-Ho ; Oh, Dong-Geun ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 2, 2008, Pages 1~25
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.2.001
This study is to investigate the user behavior of defense development and test researchers working for A research institute to provide advanced library services. Based on the prior studies about the subject, survey through questionnaires were conducted, and the data analyzed using SPSS 12.0. Results of the analyses are as follows: The researchers generally gathered information 2 to 3 times per month. The major reason for information gathering was to solve problems and do their tasks. They considered accuracy of information as the most important factor when they gather information. Finding and selecting information sources were the most difficult task for them in retrieving, acquiring and using information. They have most frequently used digital materials (67%), printed materials next (26%), and non-book materials (6%). Internet was both the most frequently used and most satisfied information source for the researchers.

Kim, Sang-Jnu ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 2, 2008, Pages 45~74
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.2.045
The purpose of this study was to promote the understanding of laboratory notebook`s record characteristics through getting a line on the importance of the notebooks which have record, information, communication, and proof functions. To improve the research ethics and cultures, this study was examined and investigated by literature references and survey results. This study analyzed the status of the notebooks in part of laboratory information system of the R&D institutes, paper notebooks for laboratory records management, and the introduction of ELN for digital record. For the notebook`s institutionalization, more review is needed to the possibility of involvement in the conflict, evidential requisite and signature by inspector, the limitation of autonomous policy for the notebook`s operation, the difficulty of preservation for 30 years, the introduction of ELN and utilization for the notebooks. To improve management and institutionalization for the notebooks, it is needed to the notebook`s record for knowledge management and evidential values, support and budget for the notebook`s management department, researcher`s recognition conversion for the notebooks related to the intellectual property and technology transference, the record method train for the notebooks from the university classes, and the introduction of ELN related to the laboratory information management system or project management system.
A Study on the Wireless Internet Service of University Libraries in Korea
Kim, Sung-Won ;

DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.2.075
Korean university libraries has lead the advancement of library service by adopting state-of-art technology for the improvement of information service provision, which therefore contributes to the consolidation of the status of the library as a center of information circulation among related institutions. This paper examines the current conditions of wireless internet service provided by the university libraries. First, it takes `WDL mobile campus consortium`, which is an organized movement with many university libraries involved, and explores their major issues such as wireless internet service environment, platform components, service components and functions, user environment and usage. Finally, this paper makes suggestions for the continuous advancement of the university libraries` wireless services.
A Study on Reconstructing Archival Appraisal Regime of Foreign Countries in Electronic Record Environments : Focusing on Archival Appraisal Strategies in a National Point of Views
Kim, Myoung-Hun ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 2, 2008, Pages 95~130
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.2.095
This article intends to provide a direction for reconstructing the national regime of archival appraisal in electronic record environments. Functional appraisal, which inevitably carries out for appraising electronic records, has defects in aspect of selecting archives important in a national point of views. To do so, this article discusses defects of functional appraisal, and then suggests the necessity of archival appraisal strategies that complements functional appraisal. To investigate this archival appraisal strategies, it analyzes Australia`s Whole-of-Government Functional Analysis, United Kingdom`s Acquisition Policy and Appraisal Policy, Germany`s Cooperative Cross-Archives Appraisal and Canada`s Macro Appraisal. Ultimately, this analysis is able to establish a base of the regime of archival appraisal which will harmonize primary value at current stage with secondary value at non-current stage in a national point of views.
A Foreign Serials Overlap Study for Collaborative Collection Development
Hwang, Hye-Kyong ; Kim, Soon-Young ; Lee, Hye-Jin ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 2, 2008, Pages 131~161
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.2.131
Recently electronic journal articles prevail throughout researchers because of the development of internet and electronic publishing technology. It is caused by limited collection development budget, lack of physical storage space for printed journals in libraries, and the user convenience of web services. But from the view of ownership, electronic journals can be unfavorable to information users or libraries who cannot have the permanent right to access all the subscribed journals. Actually the libraries only have right to access journals for subscription periods in using electronic journals. So the users and libraries are willing to purchase printed journals in spite of high cost. As an basis for collaborative collection development and sharing preservation of Korean libraries for the foreign journals, the data analysis is carried out for the journals collection in terms of regional distribution, overlapping status, and journal subject. And the considerables are discussed for collaborative strategic collection development, which means the reduction of overlapped subscription and maximization of utilization in a national standpoint.
An Empirical Study on the Determinants of Operating Performance of Academic Libraries in Seoul - Focused on Circulation Performance -
Yang, Byung-Hoon ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 2, 2008, Pages 163~184
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.2.163
This research provides an empirical analysis of the academic libraries` operating performance in Seoul, Korea. This study aims to find the key variables and the impacts of each variables on the operating performance of the academic library to attain competitiveness and long-term conditions for enhancing customer satisfaction. Specifically, this research focuses on the library`s circulation service performance. The author try to analyze the relationship between the characteristics of the library (space, number of employees, number of books, budget) and the circulation performance. Korea Libraries Association have published yearly-book on the Korean library`s circumstances and statistics. Yearly-book contains the data about the spaces, number of books, number of workers, the library`s budget scales and other unique elements. This study finds that the circulation performance of books is positively related with the size of physical space, number of books holdings, and budgets (hypothesis 1, 3 and 4 accepted). This study demonstrate that the characteristic elements of academic library can be influential factor of the library performance.

Recently, the frequency and scale of natural disasters such as typhoons, flood, earthquakes, and tidal waves from earthquakes has been increasing. Several nations have recognized that earth observation is essential for protecting the Earth`s environment. However, as the data format from earth observation varies depending on areas, institutes, and countries, sharing and exchange between data is difficult. Thus, we have a metadata standardization scheme suitable for the domestic situation to allow exchange of data between societal benefit areas with reference to principles of data sharing and exchange that are discussed on GEO (Group on Earth Observation). We have also designed metadata schemes required to identify the metadata situation of earth observation data being used for 9 societal benefit areas of GEOSS(Global Earth Observation System of Systems).
