A Study on Information Architecture for Mobile Library Websites
Kim, Seong-Hee ; Nam, Jae-Woo ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 42, issue 1, 2011, Pages 1~23
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2011.42.1.001
In this study, we analyzed the academic library websites in terms of information structure, navigation, and labeling system. The study showed that the information structure was linear. In analyzing 8 library sites, we found many common top-level categories but ultimately, the number of main menu ranged from 4 to 15 categories. Also, the results showed that the sites used a sub-domain such as mobile, or just m to keep it short. It seemed to keep the mobile site part of the library site without creating confusion. Finally, Labeling in some mobile sites was not clear and consistent.

DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2011.42.1.025
This study aims to identify the core life-cycle elements for archiving digital content through analyzing the existing digital content life-cycle models and suggest the remedies for management the digital content of KISTI after a comparative study. As a result, the 10 core life-cycle categories consisted of 31 small elements were defined. Furthermore, the recommendations that digital content archiving should be set as a critical mission and archiving policy should be prepared in KISTI were proved.
Author Graph Generation based on Author Disambiguation
Kang, In-Su ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 42, issue 1, 2011, Pages 47~62
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2011.42.1.047
While an ideal author graph should have its nodes to represent authors, automatically-generated author graphs mostly use author names as their nodes due to the difficulty of resolving author names into individuals. However, employing author names as nodes of author graphs merges namesakes, otherwise separate nodes in the author graph, into the same node, which may distort the characteristics of the author graph. This study proposes an algorithm which resolves author ambiguities based on co-authorship and then yields an author graph consisting of not author name nodes but author nodes. Scientific collaboration relationship this algorithm depends on tends to produce the clustering results which minimize the over-clustering error at the expense of the under-clustering error. In experiments, the algorithm is applied to the real citation records where Korean namesakes occur, and the results are discussed.
A Study on Integration of Internal Information Retrieval Systems using Mashup; National Institute of Korean History Information Systems
Lee, Hye-Won ; Yoon, So-Young ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 42, issue 1, 2011, Pages 63~83
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2011.42.1.063
Mashup service provides results by query in real time and responds to users` request in dynamic. In terms of size, each of NIKH(National Institute of Korean History)`s internal Information Systems is equal to individual library system. As adapting mashup for information convergence with external resources, it was accepted for internal integrated search in the same context. This study designated NIKH OpenAPI and proposed metadata format for internal integrated search of historical contents.
Seeking Alternative Models and Research Trends for Big Deals in the Electronic Journal Consortium
Kim, Sang-Jun ; Kim, Jeong-Hwan ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 42, issue 1, 2011, Pages 85~111
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2011.42.1.085
The purpose of this study was to seek a workable alternative to replace a big deal related to the journal budget for the maintenance of academic libraries with the largest issue on the E-journal consortium. The contents of this study was to present it. It had examined the current situation, strengths, weaknesses and corresponding to replace the big deal contract. After reviewing the literature, we looked into the alternative activities for the big deal such as open access-based, usage-based, consortium improvement-based, publishers lead, and other models. As a result, the `consortium cost reapportion model` was an alternative for the KESLI. The alternative was in the short term for cost division format, but long-term oriented for a consortium single(bloc) payment type or national licence model. The model was based on the data from the last year. It had evaluated download the PDF and HTML documents, but the three times weighting more than others, and the rest of 14 factors of 0.5 to 5 out of 100 total score. The total amount negotiated by national units 10, 20 and 30 grades for the final step was allocated to the participating library on the KESLI consortium.
A Study on the Functional Requirement of Subject Authority Data for Subject Authority Control
Park, Zi-Young ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 42, issue 1, 2011, Pages 113~135
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2011.42.1.113
The final report of the Functional Requirement of Subject Authority Data(FRSAD), the 3rd report of the FRBR family model, is announced by IFLA in June, 2010. This model represents the international trends of subject authority control and suggests a direction to the future subject authority record suitable for the FRBR system. Therefore aims of this study are to analysis the FRSAD model in context of the FRBR family and apply the model to the subject headings and bibliographic records of Korean National Library. For these aims, we analyse the model focused on the entities, attributes, and relationships between entities. From this analysis, we have found the openness of the FRSAD, which does not force a certain entity types and has focus on the conceptual aspects of the entity not only the form of the headings. Moreover, we suggest examples by applying the FRSAD frame and facets of the FAST to the Headings of the NLSH and related KORMARC fields. The scope of this study is the additional entities of the FRBR groups, so personal names, corporate names, family names and titles are not included. As a result, it is necessary to determine the criteria for the types of thema and to apply the types consistently in bibliographic records. A follow up research will be needed to suggest more detailed examples.
A Study on the Factors Influencing Information Sharing in the Social Network Services
Shin, Ho-Kyoung ; Shin, Ji-Myoung ; Lee, Ho ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 42, issue 1, 2011, Pages 137~156
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2011.42.1.137
In this paper, our goal is to examine the factors of user`s satisfaction and information sharing in Social Network Services(SNS). Based on the theoretical framework like attachment theory and self-presentation theory, we develop and test a theoretical model, propose hypotheses and analyze the effects of emotional attachment and self-presentation on the satisfaction and information sharing of SNS users. For this research, questionnaire survey was conducted with literature study and the PLS(Partial Least Square) was used to analyze the measurement model and hypotheses testing. The PLS analysis results indicate that emotional attachment affects SNS users` satisfaction and information sharing. Further, information sharing is influenced by self-presentation of SNS users. Practical implications of these findings and future research implications are also discussed.
