Health literacy is the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions. Librarians should improve their health literacy as well as that of their users` in order to help library users make well-informed decisions. In this study, we developed educational programs related to CHI (Consumer Health Information) suitable for Korean public librarians` professional development. We measured the effectiveness of the training after its administration and found areas in which improvement was necessary. As a result, this study found the following effects on public librarians after they completed the training: improved the public librarians` familiarity with CHI-related terms; increased education for users and diversification of resources; diversification and specialization of information sources which librarians used to perform CHI-related services; reduced time for reference services; increased professional knowledge in this area. However, this research represented the first time CHI-related education for public librarians was performed in Korea, and therefore many limitations were present in the education instructor, the diversity of subjects, and the methodology. Development of more advanced CHI-related education programs is required.

Social network analysis was performed on 545 job descriptions in 32 university libraries in Seoul, and drew the job distribution and their relations. Furthermore, for finding the differences according to scale of libraries, this study performed secondary analysis by dividing them two groups. Results show that large scale library show lower density and loose connectivity than small scale library. And while jobs of small scale library were clustered 3 groups, large scale university cluster 4 groups containing 1 technical job and 3 diverse user services. And the jobs that has high specificity, such as catalog or classification, shows high degree centrality in the case of small scale library. Whereas in large scale library they show lower degree centrality, so it can be said that these jobs were performed somewhat independently in large scale libraries.

Based upon the provision of limitation of copyrights, libraries may provide the document delivery service which supplies copies of journal articles and book chapters owned at other libraries by request of users. However, more proactive information service is required as more users want to use the digital delivery of documents published overseas. This study reviews copyright law of Korea and international conventions related to the document delivery service. It then examines foreign cases to see how overseas information centers clear copyrights. Finally this study suggests that copyright clearance methods be adopted to make a proactive information service. Through those methods, a new information service model may be planned, which meets various information needs while protecting copyright.

Scholarly science citation data is typically of large volume and consists of a variety of data. Moreover, the volume of data is increasing more and more. Therefore, there are some requirements to store and manage the data efficiently and Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (KISTI) develops Korea Science Citation Database (KSCD) which manage and serve very large-volume of korea science technique information including citation data. However, current services based on KSCD are not enough for various users. Thus, it is important issue to offer a variety of services using KSCD. For example, if a user searches articles described by a specific author, then a user may want to find not only the articles cited by a certain author but also those articles that study similar topics. However, it is not always easy to provide these services with citation data. Therefore, this paper surveys studies about services using citation data in order to find approaches for better utilizing KSCD. Especially, this paper considers data mining techniques, because data mining is one of the main techniques to extracting semantic information from big data. Therefore, this paper discusses methods for utilizing large volume of KSCD based on data mining technique.
