A Study on Costs of Digital Preservation
Chung, Hye-Kyung ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 22, issue 1, 2005, Pages 47~64
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2005.22.1.047
To guarantee the long-term access to digital material, digital preservation needs to be systemized, and detailed investigation on cost elements of digital preservation should be done for the continued support of budget. To meet the needs in this area, this paper categorized the digital preservation cost into direct and indirect cost through deriving common elements used in prior research on this issue. For case analysis, two institutions, representing domestic University Library and National Library of Korea under large-scale digitization currently, are selected to analyze the current status of digital preservation and estimate the preservation cost. The case analysis shows the systematic preservation function should be performed to guarantee the long-term access digital material, even though a basic digital preservation is currently conducted. It was projected that the digital preservation cost for the two libraries, accounting for
of digitization cost, respectively, should be injected every year. However, the estimated figures are very conservative, because the cost for estimating the preservation function, such as installing digital repository and producing meta data, was excluded in the estimation. This proves that digital preservation is a synthetic activity linked directly and indirectly to various activities from production to access of digital object and an essential costs that should be considered from the beginning stage of digitization project.
A Study on the Site Selection of Public Libraries Using Analytic Hierarchy Process Technique and Geographic Information System
Park, Sung-Jae ; Lee, Jee-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 22, issue 1, 2005, Pages 65~85
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2005.22.1.065
This study proposes a new site selection model which reflects integrated opinions of several groups and identifies sites through objectivity of selection procedure. The proposed model consists of two parts, Analytic Hierarchy Process(AHP) and Geographic Information(GIS). This model was applied to Seocho-gu in Seoul. First, library site selection criteria were determined through literature study. Hierarchical relationship based on the questionnaire was determined and refined to be suited to Seocho-gu case. A survey was conducted with three groups, namely, library users, librarians, and public worker. A few inconsistent answers to the survey questionnaire were excluded and the relative importance of each criterion was measured. Next, an overlay method was used and the relative importance was used as a weight for selecting candidates. This process excluded the areas where a library was unable to be built, for example, rivers, military areas, other restricted areas by law, etc. and resulted in seventy-five sites. Five groups of candidates were identified according to the similarity of criteria. Finally, four groups, after eliminating one lowly fitted group, were determined.

A Study on the Analysis of AGROVOC for Establishment of Concept Relationships of Ontology
Yoo, Yeong-Jun ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 22, issue 1, 2005, Pages 125~144
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2005.22.1.125
This study uncovered ambiguity and inconsistency of the semantic relationships of the existing thesaurus by analyzing the concept relationships of AGROVOC and proposed the concept relationships of ontology in partially overcoming these limitations. By the results of analyzing the concept relationships, the study proposed conceptual model as most important part of conecept relationships of ontology and semantically developed concept relationship types. These relationships partially can perform inferences and must be useful for information knowledge system based on more exact semantic relationships. Also the study found out new relationship types and they will be useful for extension of the concept relationships of existing thesaurus. And these relationship types showed that they were useful for the existing thesaurus as Legal Thesaurus.

Kim, Pan-Jun ; Chung, Young-Mee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 22, issue 1, 2005, Pages 191~208
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2005.22.1.191
This study utilizes various approaches for new topic detection in the process of assigning and updating descriptors, which is a representation method of the knowledge structure. Particularly in the case of occurring changes on the knowledge structure due to the appearance and development of new topics in specific study areas, new topic detection can be applied to solving the impossibility or limitation of the existing index terms in representing subject concepts. This study confirms that the majority of newly developing topics in information science are closely associated with each other and are simultaneously in the phase of growth and development. Also, this study shows the possibility that the use of candidate descriptor lists generated by new topic detection methods can be an effective tool in assisting indexers. In particular. the provision of candidate descriptor lists to help assignment of appropriate descriptors will contribute to the improvement of the effectiveness and accuracy of indexing.
