A Study on Selection of the SCI in Domestic Journals
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 7~28
The purpose of this study is to investigate the selection mechanism of the Science Citation Index(SCI) in domestic journals. Analysis has been carried out specially on the \"Journal of the Korean Nuclear Society\", which is a leading journal in the nuclear field in Korea. It is published in English and meets the basic standards of technical journal, however, does not meet the SCI selection criteria in many aspects. Major problems are; 1) Small number of research institutes and universities submit articles to the journal. 2) The impact factor is 0.097, far less than 0.764, the average value of SCI, and the rate of self-citation approaches only to 50%. 3) The journal is not distributed to the libraries in universities and research institutes that have nuclear engineering programs in foreign countries. 4) It does not have editor from international communities, only domestic editors serve for the journal. The study made recommendations for ways to be selected by SCI and utilization of this study for selection criteria of SCI.
Cost-based Optimization of Extended Boolean Queries
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 29~40
In this paper, we suggest a query optimization algorithm to select the optimal processing method of an extended boolean query on inverted files. There can be a lot of methods for processing an extended boolean query according to the processing sequence oh the keywords con tamed in the query, In this sense, the problem of optimizing an extended boolean query it essentially that of optimizing the keyword sequence in the query. In this paper, we show that the problem is basically analogous to the problem of finding the optimal join order in database query optimization, and apply the ideas in the area to the problem solving. We establish the cost model for processing an extended boolean query and develop an algorithm to filled the optimal keyword-processing sequence based on the concept of keyword rank using the keyword selectivity and the access costs of inverted file. We prove that the method selected by the optimization algorithm is really optimum, and show, through experiments, that the optimal method is superior to the others in performance We believe that the suggested optimization algorithm will contribute to the significant enhancement of the information retrieval performance.
A Study on Effective Knowledge Contents Management under the Digital Library System
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 41~62
Effective resource management in the digital library should be implemented for the whole accessible sources on the network including multimedia one such as image files other than texts which focus on books. Contents management can be resource management of digital library in terms of wide scope, moreover, it\`s main function is to provide effectively tailor-made knowledge contents for users\` diversified objective of information usage. In this study, I examined main factors for more effective and advanced knowledge management including web resources under the current digital environment. First of all, I described closely several types of conceptualization and trails regarding more effective contents management and came up with advanced user-centered contents management system, i.e., user factors, intermediary factors, and finally service ones.
A Study on the Design of the Knowledge Management System for Medical Information Services in a Public Library
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 63~86
Consumer health information is receiving more attention than ever before. This growing attention can be linked to the Internet and to people seeking more information on health topics. The purpose of this study is to suggest a design of the Knowledge management system for medical information services in a public library. As theoretical backgrounds, it discusses the issues regarding to the medical information services in a public library, knowledge management and knowledge management system. After that, 12 medical information sites are analyzed then the planning and the main menu of a medical information site for a public library are described. Finally, the model of the knowledge management system for a public library with 5 sub-systems are suggested: 1) knowledge creation system, 2) technology support system, 3) training system, 4) community service system, 5) knowledge sharing and network system. This system based on knowledge management will help provide the users high quality of medical information.
Principles of Design for Hybrid Information Service Model
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 87~114
A hybrid information environment can be described as one where an appropriate range of heterogeneous information services is presented to the user in a consistent and integrated way via a single interface. The purpose of this study is to suggest a need of hybrid information services through understanding of the hybrid information environment and hybrid library. Additionally, this study deal with basic concepts of design for a hybrid information service model and address a number of hybrid library projects based on these concepts, such as Agora, BUILDER, HealdLine, HyLife, and MALIBU. Finally, this study survey generic a model of hybrid library and suggest basic principles for building of hybrid information service model, such as integration, seamlessness, authentication, interconnectivity, and personalization of information seeking process environment.
An Evaulation of University Sites in Korea Based on Information Architecture Criteria
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 115~138
The purpose of this study is to provide general principles to be used in designing university websites from the perspective of information architecture. Quantitative and qualitative evaluation criteria of web sites were developed based on information architecture principles. The students taking IA class were directly involved in constructing the evaluation criteria and they can be classified into four categories: 1) information organization; 2) navigation system; 3) labeling system; and searching system. These criteria were employed in evaluating twenty randomly selected university websites in Korea. General principles to be used in designing university websites were developed based on the findings of the study. They are composed of four major components in designing: 1) systematic information organization; 2) flexible navigation system; 3) consistent labeling system; and 4) efficient searching system.
A Study on Archiving and Perpetual Access for Electronic Journals
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 139~158
In the print world libraries have served as the archival repository for journals that they owned. In the age of digital information, however, with the licensing of electronic journals libraries purchase access to journal contents rather than paying for ownership. Libraries note the potential benefits of electronic journals, but also quake at the thought of inaccessible electronic journal contents caused by lack of preservation, changing technology, or publisher requirements. It is real that libraries have not yet stepped in to create archives of the electronic journals they are purchasing. In the digital environments, publishers, libraries, and other information providers are not the independent units that we used to be. It will take us all working together to solve the problem of preserving access to electronic journals. Thus, it is reasonable that a national library would be charge of making a comprehensive archiving policy on electronic journals, and that cooperative agreements of local libraries can help divide responsibility for different subject areas or materials.
A Text Summarization Model Based on Sentence Clustering
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 159~178
This paper presents an automatic text summarization model which selects representative sentences from sentence clusters to create a summary. Summary generation experiments were performed on two sets of test documents after learning the optimum environment from a training set. Centroid clustering method turned out to be the most effective in clustering sentences, and sentence weight was found more effective than the similarity value between sentence and cluster centroid vectors in selecting a representative sentence from each cluster. The result of experiments also proves that inverse sentence weight as well as title word weight for terms and location weight for sentences are effective in improving the performance of summarization.
A Study on Usability of Interface Metaphors in the Information Retrieval Systems
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 179~202
In information system research. there has been a strong interest in developing the user-centered interface. Interface metaphors have been regarded as a user friendly device of the information retrieval systems. This study is to discover overall opinions about metaphors and to evaluate the usability of metaphors used in the homepages and retrieval interfaces of academic and public libraries. It is found that some metaphors cause users to confuse because they are similar each others or don\`t have unique meaning and because some have weak relationship between texts and images of metaphors. It is necessary to develop a metaphor model suitable for the a specific interface. This study proposes to develop functional metaphors which can help users easily understand how to operate and remember the procedures, and which are based in user\`s knowledge and experiences. The organizational metaphors of a virtual community also will be considered as a new type of retrieval interfaces.
The Development of the Prototype for Electronic Journal
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 203~218
The prototype of electronic journal is proposed on the notion of functional properties of internet or web. Additionally, the methodology for the friendly relationship between print oriented journal and electronic one is also suggested. The electronic journal is consisted of 6 menus, administration area, community service, what\`s up & current papers. category service, searching and extend retrieval service. And the electronic journal is designed not only on the succession of the attributes of printed journal, but also on tole emphasis of its electrical properties. But at the end of document, it is mentioned that in the near future all the information service related media or mechanisms will be synthesized and uniquely evolved on the succession of those properties.
B2B eMarketplace for Library Materials Acquisition
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 219~238
This paper is proposed next generation digital library models which based on the understanding of changes in digital library and business paradigm. The models which were proposed at the paper are applied electronic commerce technologies to digital libraries. The logical model was developed in the area of library material acquisition to participate various related agents during acquisition processes into single eMarketplace. The paper was developed detailed eMarketplace logical model to integrate and transact library material acquisition process.
Comparative Analysis on the Evaluation Indicators of Academic Libraries
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 239~264
The aim of this study is to compare and analyse the evaluation or performance indicators for academic libraries suggested at domestic and foreign. For the study, evaluation indicators of the various evaluation models(IFLA, ISO, ALA/ACRL, LA, HEFCE, CERLIM, JUAA, UNICOOP. KLA) was analysized. Evaluation or performance indicators should shed light on inputs and outputs of resource, levels of demand and satisfaction, the library effectiveness, and operating efficiency. There is a great deal of work going on at present, but as yet there is no greed set of indicators that can be across all academic libraries. Therefore, new evaluation indicators for physical and electronic libraries should be developed.
A Study on the User Cognitive Styles in the Web-based OPAC System Evaluation
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 265~284
The aim of this study was to discover the correlation between users cognitive style and their attitude towards evaluating the system. Postgraduate students cognitive styles were defined as Verbaliser/Imager and Wholist/Analytic, and the functionality and ease of learning features of a Web-based OPAC(Online Public Access Catalogue) system were evaluated using a combined evaluation methods: interviews for the preliminary survey, a questionnaire far the central data collection, and a psychometric approach for the judgement of students cognitive style using Ridings CSA(Cognitive Style Assessment) tool. Forty-four postgraduate student volunteers responded and data was analysed using SPSS(Statistical Package for Social Science) for Windows. The statistical analysis of each feature of the evaluation, the correlation between the variables, and the features were explored using Pearsons correlation coefficients(r). In exploring the effects of the cognitive styles of individuals, this study has failed to reveal a significant (P < 0.05) correlations in the interactive Web-based OPACs evaluation. It could be said that the contribution of cognitive styles to evaluating Web-based OPACs is likely to be weaker than that of non-cognitive (or demographic) variables.
A study on the Classification Schemes of Internet Resources for Industry
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 18, issue 3, 2001, Pages 285~309
The industry information grows faster than any other information resources in the Internet age. Unfortunately, however, there is no consensus on the standard of the classification among the information providers of the industry fields. This may a problematic issue not only in building a continuous and systematic development of the industry information, but also in the use of the information among the users. This study aims to propose a well-structured and/or an efficient classification scheme for the industry information to help the users with easy to retrieve the Internet resources. To do this, we analyzed the subject classification scheme of the domestic industry information on the web sites, which is largely adopted the \"Korean Standard for the Industry Classification\". In addition, we suggested the principle of the subject classification and their hierarchial structure derived from the analysis of the knowledge and document classification scheme. As a result, it was suggested an optimized industry classification scheme based on the analysis of the validity test of classification item measured by the quantitative analysis of the industry information, which it currently accessible through the Internet.
