An Experimental Study on Ranking Output of Title Word Searching in the Boolean OPAC System
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 7~30
The characteristics of the short document representatives and short queries of OPAC systems need the different ranking algorithms from IR systems. This study tested and analyzed the effectiveness of four sorting schemes and four ranking algorithms and the six effectiveness measurements for the ranked Boolean OPAC systems. The sorting by publication year was better but without significant difference. The cover density ranking was significantly better than the frequency-based ranking of the Fuzzy or DNF models. The simple effectiveness measurement based on the average rank of relevant documents retrieved was as good as the others and better than the precision P.
A Study on Development and Implementation of Website Evaluation Model
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 31~56
The number of websites in Korea is increasing rapidly as demonstrated by more than 510,000websites registered under the ".kr" domain as of the end of December 2000. In order to effectively copewith the deluge of web information and maintain ready access to useful information on the web,utilization and management of web information through websites that have been evaluated and ratedfavorably is becoming increasingly important. As websites now increasingly provide industry-specificinformation, information managers are now finding it essential to meet their specific information needsthrough separation and ranking of useful information from the rest.However, evaluation of industry-specific information requires industry-specific expertise as well asgeneral website evaluation tools. This paper develops a website evaluation model and attempts to rankindustry-specific websites through case studies of previous website evaluation and consultation withexperts in specific industries. Based on the model developed, this paper selects 100 outstanding websitesin 10 areas of construction industry. The research also hypothesizes that, with appropriate modifications,the rating models used for the construction industry can also be applied to other industries for moreefficient information management.e efficient information management.
A Design and Implemention of an Article Union Cataloging System Based on Metadata
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 57~76
As the rapid develoment of internet and information technology, the traditional library has been altered to the digital content service based on the world wide web. This paper proposes a design and implementation of an Artcle Union Catalog System(AUCS) based on metadata. The metadata set for the AUCS consists of twelve Dublin Core elements and one holdings element. The qualifiers of the proposed metadata elements are also represented. The AUCS system has an online cooperated cataloging system using the web interface or the 239.50 protocol, an union cataloging management system, and an integrated information retrieved system service. The integrated search and retrieval service of the AUCS displays not only the summary and detailed bibliographic information, but also the abstract, the table of contents, the digital content, and the copylfax service.
Validity Assessment of Ed-Program & License for Internet IR Specialist
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 77~104
Searching and retrieving information on the Web that define the core-function of Internet IR specialists is one of the activities that practitioners and searchers of LIS fields do exceptionally yell. Various education programs and license examinations for Internet IR specialists have been carried out by many organizations, without consistent monitoring or objective evaluation of those validity and functionality, which community of information professionals requires. This study focused on investigating the current practice of the education and license exam, and identifying problems that hinder the validity of those programs, and alerting the professionals to enhance and expand serious cooperation to keep up with the evolving interests of Internet IR specialists as a great challenge we all(partners, researchers, and policy-makers in government) face.
A Study on the Development of a Practical Morphological Analysis System Based on Word Analysis
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 105~124
The purpose of this study is to develop a Korean word analysis system, which can improve performance of IRS, based on various methods of word analysis. In this study we focused on maximizing the speed of Korean word analysis, modulizing each functional system and analyzing Korean morpheme precisely. The system, developed in this study, implemented optimal algorithm to increase the speed of word analysis and to verify speed and performance of each subsystem. In addition, the numeral analysis processing was achieved to reduce a system burden by avoiding recursive analysis of compound nouns, based on numeral pattern recognition.
A Study of Information Needs of Academic Library Users: With Special Emphasis on Reference Questions
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 125~142
This study attempts to identify users' potential information needs in a medium-sized academic library by analyzing reference questions raised by library users for 64 days from October 10th to December 13th, 2000. A total of 474 reference questions were analysed of which only 10.1% were pure reference questions that dealt with the professional knowledge of reference librarians. 71.0% had nothing to do with professional knowledge, being directional(29.3%), mechanic(23.8%), and library policy related(l7.9%). Improvements in sign system and guiding materials in the library should be made to deliver reference services of good quality to academic library users.
A Study on the Organizing Directory for Internet Directory Search Engines
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 143~164
The purpose of this study is to suggest the guidelines for organizing and maintaining their subject directory search engines which serve effective search results of web documents. The methods of this study are to review and analyze some directory search engines for finding problems of them and review literatures concerned with classification theory and previous studies. As results, this study suggests the guidelines for preparing the systematic subject directory scheme that is adapted to the internet directory search engines related to general andlor special subject fields through using the above guidelines.
A Study on the Design of Interlibrary Loan System Linked with IRS
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 165~186
The purpose of this study is to explore practical methods of interlibrary loan system, linked with information retrieval system. The process and current status of interlibrary loan was investigated and analyzed at medical libraries in this study. In order to find the way of utilizing data from information retrieval and document request at the same time, the author tries to develop a way of linking PubMed, Union Catalog and ILL system. This study shows that hit record of information retrieval was saved in type of MEDLINE, XMLJSGML and reused for document delivery services. It seems to be efficient that the maintenance of Union Catalog was managed by all of member libraries, and data were retrieved at server and client side at once. In addition, it was found that user information can be checked by the IP and ILL system can be used for requested document by the saved result.
A Study on Netiquette and Inappropriate Behavior in Cyberspace
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 187~202
Given the lack of moral consciousness and increase of inappropriate behavior in cyberspace which is part of information society, more emphasis has been laid on netiquette. In this context, this study develops a theoretical background on netiquette, analyzes types of inappropriate behavior in cyberspace, and suggests some recommendations to settle down the sound cyber-culture and information society.
Development of a Clustering Model for Automatic Knowledge Classification
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 203~230
The purpose of this study is to develop a document clustering model for automatic classification of knowledge. Two test collections of newspaper article texts and journal article abstracts are built for the clustering experiment. Various feature reduction criteria as well as term weighting methods are applied to the term sets of the test collections, and cosine and Jaccard coefficients are used as similarity measures. The performances of complete linkage and K-means clustering algorithms are compared using different feature selection methods and various term weights. It was found that complete linkage clustering outperforms K-means algorithm and feature reduction up to almost 10% of the total feature sets does not lower the performance of document clustering to any significant extent.
A Study on the Development of Thesaurus Using Terminological Definitions
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 231~254
As contemporary thesauri have become large and complex, it is increasingly difficult to assess the intended meaning of each one of the terms. Thereby the meaning of many descriptors seems to be very similar, and it is often not possible to distinguish among them and to identify the term correctly. Purpose of this article is to induce definitions of descriptors in thesaurus by specifying the characteristics of each concept, locating it in the domain and providing clear and prescriptive information on the meaning of each descriptor in the form of a standardized terminological definition. In this study, a small prototype thesaurus using definition of term in the field of information industry in Korean Standards has been developed. In this thesaurus definitions are written for each descriptor with the help of a proposed defining model and in accordance with defining rules borrowed from the field of terminology. In addition, elements of analyzed definition have been included in the relation structure of descriptors. It is revealed that terminological definition added to thesaurus may permit extraction of separate items of information from definitions for the representation of knowledge structures and makes it easier to confine the scope of descriptors to be included in thesaurus in a given subject field.
Development of Electoronic Book of Korea Standard
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 255~272
Generally, a paper book that is digitalized or a method of giving information to user in a form of paper book after digitalization is called ebook. Due to the rapid spread of internet and development of digital information technology, ebook has become an important issue globally. Not only can ebook send information efficiently but the price is low and compared to paper books it is more effective in sending information by using technologies like multimedia. However, ebook markets have problems to grow because there are different ebook formats. In this study, we will explain about the development of Electronic Book of Korea Standard(EBKS) to solve the problems. The purpose of EBKS is the exact exchange for ebook contents. To archive this purpose, we define the explict logical structure for documents and recommend metadata for doemetic enviroments and XSL-FO to provide high-quality layout. We expect that the establishment of EBKS will greatly contribute to growth of ebook markets by preventing the duplicable investment for contents and technologies.
A Study on Improving the Organizational Structure for University Libraries with Service Paradigm Shifts
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 273~294
In recent years, changes in the university libraries environment have led to increased emphases on improving or restructuring the organizational structures of university libraries. Technology, trends toward access over ownership, user focus, and restructuring in higher education are some of the major factors contributing to these changes. The users' new information retrieving behavior are emerged from the developments in information technology with new media and from the competitive research environments, and thus this trend has led to the gradual increase of collection arrangement by subjects rather than by forms, particularly from 1995 in Korean universities' libraries. Users especially in university libraries who are frequently seeking information on the specific subject, are going to find a room accoinmodating all forms of information on the subject, that is, one-stop information service. As a result, subject division structure have adopted as a new organizational structure in Korea. Our survey shows 34 out of 73 university libraries in Korea is taking this structure of which collections are arranged by subjects, while the rest of them are operating with a traditional organizational structure by forms focusing on keeping of collection management. In the future, university libraries with traditional organizational structure will be moving towards the subject division structure which is a recommended one by this study.
Extending the MARTIF and TEI for Korean Lexical Entities
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 2, 2001, Pages 295~322
The purpose of this study is to present a scheme to encode all possible lexical entities in dictionaries, glossaries, encyclopedias, and thesaurus, etc. First, it discussed the nature and structure of dictionaries. Second, two current major terminological data encoding schemes, MARTIF and TEI were analyzed in terms of their flexibility for extension to encompass all lexical entities. Third, an integrated microstructure of dictionaries was presented and compared with the MARTIF and TEI for print dictionaries. Then, the need and 17 suggestions for extended MARTIF and TEI formats were addressed with specific cases, which combined with the suggestions from two studies concerning MARTIF and TEI DTD modification for the markup of Korean dictionary entries.
