Economic Value of Technological Information : An Application of Contingent Valuation
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 17, issue 2, 2000, Pages 7~18
In this paper, we have tried to evaluate the economic value of technological information. Toward this aim, we have adopted the newly emerging method of contingent valuation which capitalizes on the direct survey through users. The estimated result indicates the strong support for the public activities to provide and diffuse technological information. We also tried to shed light on the implications of the research finding for government technology policy.

A Study on the Reorganization of the Knowledge Classification Scheme
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 17, issue 2, 2000, Pages 37~66
This study attempts to reorganize the knowledge classification system for the research fields and majors in education by designing a new classification schedule. Content analysis of the majors and curriculums in the universities and major areas of the academic professors in Korea, and the comparison with the various headings in several classification systems for research fields were carried out. Based upon the comparison with library classification systems and reviews and opinions of subject specialists in major disciplines, finally, a knowledge classification system composed of three parts - schedules, tables and a relative index - was presented. The proposed classification scheme was tested for classifying the research projects listed in the 1998 catalog of the academic research funded by Korea Research Foundation. Also, several ways for developing a more useful knowledge classification scheme to organize disciplinary information effectively and to encourage interdisciplinary research were suggested.
A Study on Integrated Access to Electronic Journals through a Single Interface
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 17, issue 2, 2000, Pages 67~83
The tremendous growth in electronic journals made it clear that access would be one of the biggest issues confronting libraries seeking to adopt them. While users must be given the freedom to move seamlessly between electronic and paper journals, the most of university libraries in Korea have not provided a single point access to these yet. This study offers opportunities to improve the convenience which permits integrated access to the thousands of electronic and paper ones. It is suggested that the integrated catalog can be an appropriate solution that allows the one-stop shopping approach to library's entire collection.
A Study on the Characteristics of Meta Search Engines
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 17, issue 2, 2000, Pages 85~100
Meta search engines have been used as the first engine because they let users several search engines at once for their queries and give them the search results. The purpose of this study is to examine the features and functions of 17 meta search engines in order that it helps users select and execute effective searches on meta search engines. Each selected engine is analyzed based on the criteria evaluating both meta search engines and general search engines. The results show that each meta search engine has its own characteristics while there are common features among them. It is expected that the results of this study will help users utilize meta search engines and provide meta search engine designer basic ideas.
A Study on the University Accreditation Program and the Changes in the University Library Resources
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 17, issue 2, 2000, Pages 101~118
This study examines the university accreditation program and its effect on the resources in the accredited libraries, by using library statistics published in 1990-1999. The results indicate the accreditation may effect on the increase in library seat numbers, building spaces, library holdings, and budgets which included in the evaluation criteria, and the slight decrease in library personnel which is not. It suggests library professionals to be more involved in the accreditaion process to improve the present evaluation criteria and assessment methods.
A Study on Added-Term Relationship of Thesaurus
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 17, issue 2, 2000, Pages 119~138
The purpose of this study is to present solutions to expanding added-term relations which will fit new information retrieval environment. This report reviews standards for ISO 2788 and ANSI/NISO Z 39.19, and compares and analyzes 20 thesaurus added-term relations currently used to find out problems and limitations. Based on findings of the study, this report suggests how to expand thesaurus added-term relations to accomodate changes in information retrieval environment. In order to solve those problems, this report presents solutions to expanding added-term relationships as follows: First, definition was separated from scope note and scope note is categorized by type. Second, principles for the use of qualifiers are presented. Third, principles for expanding of descriptor term information are presented.
A Log Analysis Study of an Online Catalog User Interface
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 17, issue 2, 2000, Pages 139~153
This article focuses on a transaction log analysis of the DISCOVER online catalog user interface at Duksung Women's University Library. The results show that the most preferred access point is the title field with rate of 59.2%. The least used access point is the author field with rate of 11.6%. Keyword searching covers only about 16% of all access points used. General failure rate of searching is 13.9% with the highest failure rate of 19.8% in the subject field and the lowest failure rate of 10.9% in author field.
A Study on STI Database Construction on Demand
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 17, issue 2, 2000, Pages 155~170
In this research, several ways of creating effective STI(Scientific ＆ Technological Information) databases were suggested. We put emphasis on the selection of input data, while on the other was handled, such factors as standardization for data entry, data entry system, etc.. In order to decide priority of target data, the status of document delivery service was analyzed. The result shows that conference proceedings were given priority to academic journals. In case of journals, ranking in the number of documents requested at KORDIC (Korea R＆D Information Center) and 16 Specialized Information Centers was compared with the ranking in citation frequency and impact factor, appeared at SCI.
The Implementation of Electronic Commerce Catalog Using cXML
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 17, issue 2, 2000, Pages 171~188
This study is to implement electronic catalog that is necessary for Web-based electronic commerce and one of many application areas in digital libraries technologies. According to development to digitize various type of paper documents that are used at electronic commerce.

We investigate the appropriate design and implementation of an Inductive Learning Alogrithm with a Neural Network in order to solve both inconsistent indexing and incomplete query problems on the web. Specifically, the proposed system based queries and documents in the field of Mathematics shows how inductive learning method and neural networks can apply to information retreival. Also, this study examines all of parameters of the neural networks -- the number of node in input and output, hidden layer size and learning parameters etc. -- which are significant in determining how well the neural network will converge.
A Comparative Effectiveness and Development Study of Library Automation Systems for the Digital Library Era
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 17, issue 2, 2000, Pages 207~229
The lack of an understanding of the characteristics of a specific user group in computer-based information systems in libraries hinders library and information science professionals in grasping users' needs and making the best decisions when designing, acquiring, and managing information systems. The objective of this study was to provide information on the characteristics of specific user groups such as male ＆ female student groups. undergraduate ＆ graduate ones, Sciences and Humanities majored ones etc. This study also provides system developers (vendor) and adopters with users' needs and the merits or demerits of a specific system on the basis of students' evaluation. For the purpose, questionnaire was prepared and administered to Korean college students in the city of Taegu, Korea and adjacent area. One hundred and seventeen usable questionnaires were obtained and analyzed. These were analyzed using descriptive, inferential statistics. and SPSS software. The major findings of this study are: (1) Gender of the students affects the preference for the type of OPAC system selected more than that of academic level of study, age, and academic major; (2) The domestic in-house OPAC systems in Korea affect the user preference of system much more than that of foreign package ones; (3) System designers should prepare and use professional terms or abbreviations for system users more carefully, and explain them in detail; (4) Most of users preferred package OPAC systems to in-house ones, and preferred GUI systems to Telnet-based ones. Also, there was a significant difference between them. Conclusions are drawn from the findings in this paper, and recommendations are proposed when designing, adopting, or managing a new system. Topics for future studies on the characteristics of OPAC systems and their user are also suggested.
