An overview and analysis of commercial document delivery systems
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 15, issue 2, 1998, Pages 7~28
The purpose of this study is to overview and analyze the commercial document delivery systems. to this end, the study first compared the current systems under three headings, that is, non-collection-based systems(Infotrieve, OCLC, UnCover, BIDS, Swets & Zeitlinger, Kyobobook), collection-based systems(EBSCO, ISI, UMI, BLDSC, CISTI, INIST, NCSI, JICST, KINITI), and specialized collection-based systems(Engineering Information Inc., IEEE/IEE, BIOSIS, CAS, NAL, RSC, TWI, ADONIS). Next, the study analyzeed the advantages and disadvantages of each system, based on the four performance criteria : scope of inventory/journal coverage, turnaround time, delivery ost and payment options, reliability and satisfaction rate.
A study of overlatp records of Korean medical papers retrieved from EMBASE, MEDLINE, SCISEARCH: Their extents and characteristics
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 15, issue 2, 1998, Pages 29~46
It is practiced by many Korean medical institutions to give weights to medical papers published n foreign journals covered by major international abstracts and indexes (A&I) in the evaluation of research performance. In an attempt to recommend the databases to be used for the evaluation of KOrean medical research papers, this study measured the extent of overlap records of Korean medical papaers retrieved from the three major medical databases, EMBASE, MEDLINE and SCISEARCH. Korean papers published in foreign journals between 1990 to 1995 were analyzed. It also analyzed the characteristics of journals where these Korean medical papers are published with respect to their subjects, publishing countries and languages. It is found that these is no difference among three databsases as far as the characteristics of journals where Korean medical papers are published are concerned with respect to their subjects, publishing countries and languages. Thus the number of papers retrieved from each database should be the major criterion to recommend the A&I databases to be used in the evalua ion of research performance. If one database must be chosen for the evaluation of Korean medical papers, it is probably the best to utilize SCISEARCH which is the most efficient database for verifying Korean medical papers in foreign journals. If two databases can be used, then EMBASE should be the next choice.
A study on the use of DDC scheme in directory search engine for research information resources on internet
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 15, issue 2, 1998, Pages 47~68
Although the research information resources on Internet are spread out on thousands of computers, it is not always easy to get them on the right time by the right manner. The purpose of this study is to use DDC(Dewey Decimal Classification) scheme in subject-based directory search engine for research information resourcees to aid retrieval on the Internet. For the design of classification code, this study followed 'systematic order' of DDC to arrange subjects from the general o the specific in a logical order, and for the design of classification dictionary, 'Relative Index' of DDC was used to bring together the various aspects of subjects.
A study on modeling of university information system using the soft systems methodology
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 15, issue 2, 1998, Pages 69~88
In real life, the problems that organizations face are often not well packaged: they are frequently complex and complicated, especially when it is concerned about computer network services. The principal aim of the study is to investigate what sort of network sytem will enable uni ersities to utilize the information resources they have and need in an effective and efficient way. Therfore seven stages of the Soft systems methodology were applied to get the optimal model, then networking, maintaining, monitoring and training sytems were developed as the result.
OPAC user studies
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 15, issue 2, 1998, Pages 89~118
The findings of the CLR-OPAC studies and the major OPAC user studies are analyzed and sythesized. They are described, dividing into three categories: characteristics of users, user instruction, and user interface. Data gathering methods, and their strengths and weaknesses are also discussed.
A study on the effective factors of the organizational structure upon the organizational effectiveness of university libraries
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 15, issue 2, 1998, Pages 119~136
The objective of this study is to evaluate the organizational effectiveness of uniersity libraries in Korea. This study models emphasized the situational factors, fundamental factors and types of organiz tional effectiveness. environment, technology, size, strategy, and power were taken as situational factors of organizational structure ; fundamental factors were complexity, formalization, and centralization ; organizational structures were diveded into simple organization, functional organization, departmental organization, subject divisional organization(I), (II). Efficiency, flexibility, information service and satisfaction were taken as effectiveness factors and satisfaction was subdivided into organizational commitment and job satisfaction. In this study, situational factors, fundamental factors and types of organizational structures influence one another, ultimately affect the level of organizational effectiveness. Organizational effectiveness represents no organization of high organizational effectiveness on all levels.
A comparative study of core data elements of bibliographic record in digital library
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 15, issue 2, 1998, Pages 137~162
The purpose of this paper is to present core elements of bibliographic records to effective cataloging a variety of information materials such as monographs, non-book materials, serials, and internet resources. At first, AACR2R bibliographic data elements, the minimal level cataloging, and core records proposed by Progrma for Cooperative Cataloging(PCC) in Library of congress are discussed. After that elements of Core Records, dublin Core, KORMARC, and AACR2R are compared. Upon the results, this study suggests mandatory common core elements and optional core elements for cost-effective cataloging to all kinds of documents including internet resources.
A study of collection evaluation using conspectus methodology
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 15, issue 2, 1998, Pages 163~191
The im of the present study is to introduce and develop the concept and theory of conspectus for the first time in Korea, and to propose a new evaluation model for book collection by actually applying the developed methodology to the collection of a special library dedicated to Biblical Studies. Conspectus is a standardized and objective evaluation method that classifies the main collection according to the division, category, subject, and then gives each collection ots appropriate collection level code by analyzing the classified collection in terms of three different dimensions, which are Current Collection Level(CL), Acquisition Commitment Level(AC), and Collection Goal Level(GL). To evaluate the collection of the sample library, shelflist analysis, list checking, acquisition data in ordering process by their main subject, and survey of its users have been carried out, and all of their results ahve been indicated in terms of eleven collection level codes developed by WLN Conspectus. T e collection of sample library was evaluated as '3cW' for CL, '4W' for AC, and '4W' for GL when the Conspectus methodology was applied for evaluation. This study could be utilized as an collection evaluation model for theological libraries, and become a basis to bring about more active cooperative collection development among related libraries.
