Large-scaled information extraction plays an important role in advanced information retrieval as well as question answering and summarization. Information extraction can be defined as a process of converting unstructured documents into formalized, tabular information, which consists of named-entity recognition, terminology extraction, coreference resolution and relation extraction. Since all the elementary technologies have been studied independently so far, it is not trivial to integrate all the necessary processes of information extraction due to the diversity of their input/output formation approaches and operating environments. As a result, it is difficult to handle scientific documents to extract both named-entities and technical terms at once. In this study, we define scientific as a set of 10 types of named entities and technical terminologies in a biomedical domain. in order to automatically extract these entities from scientific documents at once, we develop a framework for scientific core entity extraction which embraces all the pivotal language processors, named-entity recognizer, co-reference resolver and terminology extractor. Each module of the integrated system has been evaluated with various corpus as well as KEEC 2009. The system will be utilized for various information service areas such as information retrieval, question-answering(Q&A), document indexing, dictionary construction, and so on.

According to the 2007 Korea library yearbook, 162 out of 589 special libraries are one person libraries which means an individual librarian takes responsibilities of all librarian tasks. Due to its particularity and diversity, however, there is lack of research on special libraries compared to the other libraries and no job analysis for human resources to be effectively managed has been done. This study aims to understand the current status of one person library by investigating its tasks and frequency, importance, difficulty of its duties. This study also suggests plans to improve the job by analyzing its association with affiliated organizations of one person library.
A Study of Metadata Elements for Digital Image Records Management

As the importance and proportion of electronic records increases in the public sector, the necessity for variable types of records management has strengthened. Elements of records management metadata standards, which were provided in 2007 by the National Archives of Korea, focused mainly on text-centered records management standards. Therefore an extension of elements which can represent diverse types of electronic records is needed. In this study, metadata elements focusing on image records are suggested. For this, the characteristics of image records are investigated and the Australian government recordkeeping metadata standard and the PREMIS data dictionary, which have been recently modified, are analyzed. Through this, four elements, format, significant properties, environment, and coverage are suggested to fortify the current records management standard.

Generally, we used to provide ILL to users for overcoming the limited resource and satisfying user`s desires for information. ILL makes library service`s paradigm change from ownership to sharing. K-university Library has been providing Campus inter-library loan as ILL to users for long time and continually trying to improve the service`s quality. This case study is to analysis the performance of campus inter-library loan in the past 9 years. As the related automation system was developed and upgraded, the service requests have been increasing annually. Campus inter-library loan requests were 12% of total book requests in 2001, and then were 75% of total book requests in 2008. The transaction time was reduced until 17% of 2004.

In order to achieve the growth of traditional Chinese medicine, the chinese government has annually released "China Statistical Yearbook of Chinese Medicine" to the world since "State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine of the People`s Republic of China" established in 1988. It is believed that the chinese government intends to secure the early dominance of the global medical market by systematic management of its own medicine infrastructures. Although the statistics of "China Statistical Yearbook of Chinese Medicine" weren`t systematically organized at the beginning, it has becoming richer, more systematic, and more standardized in the data construction and system as time has passed. Furthermore, we can take a look at China`s effort to take the initiative of oriental medicine by expanding investment in several core areas - medicine resources, operation of medical instruments, service, medicine education, medicine science research, and working expenses. This article will show how china has been trying to develop the chinese medicine, focusing on two parts. One is specific analysis of the book "China Statistical Yearbook of Chinese Medicine". It is divided into analysis of its construction system, the degree of data construction, and its statistical system. The other is analysis of annual changes in areas of medicine resources, operation of medical instruments, service, medicine education, medicine science research, and working expenses.

Among biological information, GenBank, provided by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)of the United States, is a representative database on genetic information and is the most widely used by researchers around the world. Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) visits NCBI on a regular basis and downloads the latest version of GenBank to reorganize the information gathered there into a database. This database is provided for Korean researchers of science and technology through the Bio-KRISTAL search engine, developed by KISTI. This study aims to design a service model that links information on papers, patents, and biodiversity and other contents of NDSL, an integrated service on scientific and technological information run by KISTI, with GenBank`s reference and organism fields and to develop a prototype system. For this purpose, this paper explores the possibility of a linkage and convergence service between heterogeneous content by: (a) collecting GenBank data from NCBI`s FTP site; (b) dividing GenBank text files into basic and reference genetic information and restructuring them into a database; (c) extracting article and patent information from the GenBank reference fields to generate new tables; and (d) leveraging data mapping technology to implement a prototype system where GenBank and NDSL data are interlinked and provided.

Existing bibliometric laws have been established on the basis of well defined science journals with a long history. However, the history of technology innovation research in Korea is young and the scope of the research is diverse compared with other fields. The main purpose of this research can be summarized as follows : Can the traditional bibliometric laws be used to explain the young and diverse data derived from technology innovation studies in Korea. Second, we want to compare the explain ability of the power law, compared with the traditional laws in the field. Third, we propose a quasi index related to the well-known impact factor to measure the contribution of a journal or a group of journals to the development of innovation research in Korea. We confirmed Lotka`s and Bradford`s laws which are used to measure the productivity of researchers, but we could not support the validity of Price`s Square Root law as Nicholls (1998) could not. On the citations to journals, Garfield`s laws is not observed. However, the power law fits well the citations to author, journal, article, and book. The estimated parameters between 1.6 and 3.5 are similar to the values in the range of 1.5 and 3 in previous studies. Finally the quasi index shows that the influence of international leading journals on innovation research in Korea is weaker than on innovation studies in the world.

This study is to investigate dissatisfaction behavior of customers who purchase products on the Internet shopping mall and to find customers` dissatisfaction behavior types for effectively responding to that. Managing dissatisfaction behaviors are related to the customer satisfaction. To conduct this study, Call Center data was collected and analysed by qualitative method. The results showed that dissatisfaction of product quality and disappointment have different effects on post--purchase behaviors. Customers who feel more dissatisfaction with product quality showed the aggressive response such as exchange, refund, while customers who feel disappointment are likely to switch the shopping mall or to cancel the order. These results of customers` dissatisfaction behaviors indicate that company has to manage both product quality and the customer`s experience dimension.
