A Study on the DOI Structure Using DDC
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 1, 2001, Pages 7~22
The DO1 is an opaque string or dumb number - nothing at all can inferred from the number. However some identifies can include some intelligence in the number itself, which will tell the user subject and meaningful information about the entity that is being identified. Therefore whether the DO1 suffix should be 'dumb' or 'meaningful' is a major issue in DO1 syntax structuring. Although the choice of DO1 Suffix is entirely optional, many DO1 registrants have been used existing IS0 standards such as SICI, ISBN, ISMN, etc. for identification of information resources. It is also important to consider that intelligence in a system of identifiers may be carried out by means of the DO1 structure. It was suggested that there should be an explicit part of the DO1 syntax which declares the meaningful information of the digital objects.
Internet Services in Korean Public Libraries the Status Quo and Perspectives
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 1, 2001, Pages 23~42
The purpose of this study was to obtain descriptive information about public library connectivity and use related to the Internet in Korea. Questionnaire was sent to all of the 364 public libraries in the nation. The data show that, as of the end of 1999,70.9% of the 351 public libraries which answered the questionnaire had some type of connection to the Internet, and 50.4% of them provided public Internet access services. The infrastructure of hardware and telecommunication, use policy for their public access Internet services were analysed. Public librarians were asked to evaluate their public Internet services. Overall the study found that the level of the nation' s public library Internet services were not satisfactory in quality and quantity. It also found that there were some significant disparities among public libraries in metropolitan areas, medium and small sized cities, and rural counties.
A Study on a Design of Effective Websites for Internet Bookshops
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 1, 2001, Pages 43~64
The purpose of this study is to examine the features of Internet bookshops in order to suggest the most effective website model for them. Seven Internet bookshop websites are analyzed. The evaluating criteria includes: interface layout, contents, function aspects. The results show that a suggested model should include various aspects: 1) user-centered menu structure, 2) effective search methodlsubject directory, and 3) various and good quality review.
Design and Evaluation of a Gateway to Faculty Syllabi in Computer Science
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 1, 2001, Pages 65~84
The purpose of this study was to design and evaluate a metadata system for internet-based syllabi in computer science. The study constructed two prototype systems for the experiment. One was constructed using only Dubline Core (DC) elements and the other was a DC-expanded system with additional eight elements that are not the part of DC elements. The thlrty subjects were chosen from those who majored in Computer Science. Two retrieval tasks were assigned to them. One was to find syllabi in which they are' interested and the other was to find relevant course syllabi for a given course title. After the search, they were asked to evaluate the systems in terms of efficiency, accuracy, and their satisfaction of the system. The result of the first experiment indicates that DC-based system performed significantly better in terms of search time and DC-expanded system in terms of satisfaction measure. An additional experiment was conducted to test efficiency of the browsing categories. The interview with subjects was carried out to find any difficulties associated with the current browsing scheme. The subjects expressed much1 satisfaction about assigning a course to multiple browsing categories.
A Scientometric Study SCI Impact Factors of Major Korean Medical Jernals: 1991-1999
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 1, 2001, Pages 85~104
The purpose of the study is to investigate the international standings of Korean medical journals and to provide a concrete journal evaluation data. The SciSearch database was searched for the 7,779 papers published in 8 Korean medical journals between 1989 and 1998. The frequency of citation to each journal was measured for each year, and the journal impact factor was calculated from 1991 to 1999 exactly as it is calculated in the Jour~~lnl Citation Reports (JCR). The Korean-language journals were rarely cited in SCI, even though the journals were of the medical areas where Korean researchers published a great deal of SCI papers. The number of citations to English-language journals started to grow from 1994 and increased rapidly from 1997. The citation interval is getting shorter, resulting in the drastic increases in the impact factors in the recent years. The nine-year averages of impact factors of the journals were distributed between 0.002 and 0.126. The international standings of Korean medical journals are very poor. When the impact factors were compared to those of SCI journals in the same subject category, Korean-language journals fell below the last SCI journals ranked by the impact factor, and the English-language journals were at the bottom among the SCI journals. The impact factors of 3 English-language Korean medical journals were about 2.0 when they became SCI journals in the late 1990s.
A Study on Serials Cancellation and Alternatives to Subscription in the Electronic Age
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 1, 2001, Pages 105~126
Serials subscription prices continue to escalate but university library budgets of those have not grown concurrently at the same rate. In fact, library budgets of serials subscription have decreased as a percentage of total library expenditure. Also titles with little or no use should be cancelled to make room for new serials that might be needed to reflect new research interests or changes in curriculum. This study includes overview of the serials cancellation and substitute solutions for subscriptions in university library. Taking into account costs and coverages, availability of cancelled serials through interlibrary loan is high in general. There is a potential for considerable savings by providing access to low-use titles, and that is a combination of commercial document delivery and pay per view based on e-business could be a viable alternative to subscription in many cases.
