An Analysis on Current Research Funding and Open Access Status for Science and Technology Articles Published by S University Faculties
Shin, Eun-Ja ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 41, issue 4, 2010, Pages 1~21
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2010.41.4.001
To identify current status of research funding and open access, this study analyzed the data available in science and technology articles had been published by S university`s faculty members. The study showed that 71% of the articles funded by their universities or other research sponsors, whereas very few of articles have been self-archived for open access. So, government-sponsored research outputs could not be found in search engine Google Scholar. In developed countries, researchers who have received grants by the public or private sponsors should not only publish articles on scholarly journals but also deposit their digital research outputs in the repositories. Therefore, it is advisable for Korea research sponsors to strengthen and carry out open access mandate related laws. It is very important for universities as well as for their faculties that published articles` impact can be maximized by enabling open access. So, universities may as well construct their repositories and collect the contents with enthusiasm.

The needs for independent `lifelong learning` is on the rise for the individuals living in today`s fast-paced society. As a result, the significance of `information literacy` as the core requirement for lifelong learning has become widely recognized. Some countries have even established standards for information literacy at the national level, and introduced programs to improve the overall level of information literacy in the school curriculum. In Korea, various studies have been done to identify the importance of information literacy, and also there are increasing offerings of information literacy programs in regular curriculum. Based on the result of self-efficiency assessment by the students who attended the information literacy courses, this study tries to examine the effects of those programs. It consequently confirms that these curriculums resulted in improvement of the information literacy of the students, and also provide some suggestions and guidelines for the design of the curriculum for information based on the findings.

Augmented reality technology was invented for military purposes at the beginning. But the development of wireless and location based technology in 2000s makes AR services reach the age of innovation. Especially, it attracts attention as a media which enriches our perception. There is a potential that it can extend the virtual information in the real world from optical sense to auditory, tactile, and olfactory sense. This study proposed the interactive information service system and method based on AR. To do it, technical background on AR was analyzed and a method to apply the technology was examined. Especially, as a eco service, this study proposed new information service using 2D bar code in a library for user need and convenience in ubiquitous environment. The proposed service system can optimize practical utilization of information resources in virtual and real reality as consolidating analog and digital resources in a library.

DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2010.41.4.069
Libraries are encountering hostile conditions around journal licensing such as limited budget, the high price of packages, and vendor-led negotiation. They need to collect and analyze usage data of electronic journals to develop electronic journal collection appropriate for their own circumstances. The purpose of this study is to suggest an practical guideline for librarians` analysis of electronic journal usage statistics. For this, the study reviewed related previous studies and examined current state on usage statistics provided from COUNTER release 3 compliant vendors. Finally this study proposed five core statistics including full-text article request per journal, journal using rate, price per full-text article request, most use group, and low use group, and further discussed how to use them effectively for the electronic journal management.

Kim, Sang-Jun ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 41, issue 4, 2010, Pages 93~118
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2010.41.4.093
This study was aimed to establish a workable strategies to operate KESLI consortium reliably. To encourage the research purposes, it was mainly investigated international literature on current challenges for the e-journals consortium in comparison with the domestic implications. Major issues and challenges are divided to six items by scholarly communication changes and e-journals percentage increase, a big deal for a contract -based consortium pricing model in vogue, a consortium of the price hikes and making budget difficulties, use the standard statistics by the results of the use, archiving and archive security uncertainty, and contracts public availability of such external conditions. As a result, the international challenges of E-journals consortium was similar to KESLI, but the depth of information and research on domestic was weaker than the international research. To see more research and a rational perception based on scientific evidence and alternatives that enable KESLI working in the field was needed to be.

Methodist church materials are classified with three types, centered on the organizations manufacturing and holding materials such as 1) `materials of the Methodist headquarter` governing all of the Methodist churches in Korea, 2) `materials of theological seminary libraries` holding academic study books related to theology, and 3) `materials manufactured in individual churches`. In this manner, the Methodist church materials imply homogeneity in theme, but the materials have identity from each other, because organizations are different each other, too. By a characteristic of each organizations, to use Methodist church document done a director of each organization is demanded collaboration between the material departments of each organizations, this study intends to analysis material department operation status of three Methodist church organizations. As a result of analysis, it is necessary to perform the prior tasks, such as reconstructing organization to accomplish an original function of the Methodist headquarter, developing operation regulation classified with the Methodist church group, and constructing material management system.

It`s getting popularized to collect information connecting web sites with massive information through the internet and advanced search engines. Users can handle digital materials like E-book wherever the internet is available and they will demand digital information increasingly. This study analyzes literature investigation, statistics analyses of the attached library of Kyushu University, drawings and field investigation to suggest a new model of a library which handles traditional paper-formed materials and digital-formed materials at one place with growing importance of digital materials. It results that a library performs a important role like a learning space and functions as a sociocultural communication space. Also it shows that it is required to basically reinvestigate the role of `space` in the library with a great importance of digital materials. In the hybrid library combined with subjects and reorganized at one place, One-stop services like library materials and manpower can be provided for users staying at the same area.

This study aims to suggest the basis and criterion for the data deletion guideline to make the information systems effective and reduce the cost of system management. To make a frame of the guideline, we researched the laws and policies of USA, UK and Australia and the domestic laws and regulations related with the deletion of records. From this paper research, we prepared the draft guideline and gathered the opinion about it. Through this research and survey, we produced out the guideline including the criteria, the process and the way of data deletion. Adopting the guideline to a sample organization, we couldn`t find any problem in deleting the unused data.

This study shows evaluation of how much OASIS meets "the korean web content accessibility guidelines" and analysis of some of the accessibility problems and their solutions in OASIS(Oriental Medicine Advanced Searching Integrated System) which is the only web site that offers papers and project information related to Traditional Medicine in Korea. The evaluation criteria to determine if OASIS is accessible is classified into four sub items; Perceivable - if information and user interface components is presentable to users in ways they can perceive, Operable - if user interface components and navigation are operable, Understandable - if information and the operation of user interface are understandable, Robust - if content is robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies. Based on the measured results, OASIS has just been redesigned and implemented in more accessible and effective way. OASIS that improves web accessibility for the disabled is expected to help them study oriental medicine more easily and conveniently by providing equal access and equal opportunity to use the web.

Scholarly information has increased tremendously according to the development of IT, especially the Internet. However, simultaneously, people have to spend more time and exert more effort because of information overload. There have been many research efforts in the field of expert systems, data mining, and information retrieval, concerning a system that recommends user-expected information items through presumption. Recently, the hybrid system combining a content-based recommendation system and collaborative filtering or combining recommendation systems in other domains has been developed. In this paper we resolved the problem of the current recommendation system and suggested a new system combining collaborative filtering and Naive Bayes Classification. In this way, we resolved the over-specialization problem through collaborative filtering and lack of assessment information or recommendation of new contents through Naive Bayes Classification. For verification, we applied the new model in NDSL`s paper service of KISTI, especially papers from journals about Sitology and Electronics, and witnessed high satisfaction from 4 experimental participants.
