Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 25~40
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2010.27.1.025
The purpose of this study is to analyze the usage pattern between each academic database through social network analysis, and to support the academic database for users`s needs. For this purpose, we have extracted log data to construct the academic database networks in the proxy server of K university library and have analyzed the usage pattern among each research area and among each social position. Our results indicate that the specialized academic database for the research area has more cohesion than the generalized academic database in the full-time professors` network and the doctoral students` network, and the density, degree centrality and degree centralization of the full-time professors` network and the doctoral students` network are higher than those of the other social position networks.
A Study on the Application of LibraryThing Folksonomy Tags through the Analysis of Elements related with Work
Kim, Dong-Suk ; Chung, Yeon-Kyoung ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 41~60
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2010.27.1.041
This study aims to analyze the properties of the tags used in the fiction genre, the structural aspect of the patterns and the contents of the tags by utilizing LibraryThing, where the tags are assigned in work units of FRBR. A comparative analysis was conducted in terms of the level of association between the descriptive terms in bibliography and LCSH terms. The study also examined the sources of the tags not included in the bibliographic descriptions or LCSHs, what aspects of work they represented, and the terms used as tags in relation to the work. By restricting the study to a single genre, a number of tags that reflected the characteristics of fiction (three elements of the fiction which are theme, plot, style and three elements of the fiction composition which are character, event, setting) were extracted. This study finds out the role of the tag making up the taxonomy and proposes a new direction for the tagging system by demonstrating the possibility of using tags as facets in information organization and retrieval.

Kim, Eun-Hee ; Chung, Young-Mee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 61~77
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2010.27.1.061
Blogs are now one of the major information resources on the web. The purpose of this study is to enhance the performance of blog retrieval by means of user assigned tags and trackback information. To this end, retrieval experiments were performed with a dataset of 4,908 blog pages together with their associated trackback URLs. In the experiments, text terms, user tags, and network centrality values based on trackbacks were variously combined as retrieval features. The experimental results showed that employing user tags and network centrality values as retrieval features in addition to text words could improve the performance of blog retrieval.

Nam, Tae-Woo ; Kim, Eun-Choo ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 79~102
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2010.27.1.079
In Korea, more than half of medical libraries are small.sized hospital libraries operated under the single.librarian system, and it is keenly required to establish collection management policies for exchanging resources with other libraries and maintaining consistency. however, it is rare to set up their collection management policies on the web among the domestic medical libraries. Thus, this study purposed to survey cases of collection management policies in domestic and foreign medical libraries and to provide basic information and ideas for Korean medical libraries that are preparing collection management policies. As long as core requirements are satisfied, collection management policies do not have a way. Thus, this case study is expected to provide useful ideas to medical libraries developing their collection management policies. For this purpose, we selected 12 survey items based on previous studies, and investigated one domestic and five foreign medical libraries, and analyzed collected data. Based on the results of analyzing the cases, we suggested 12 guidelines.
Analysis of Factors Influencing Patent Citations
Yoo, Jae-Bok ; Chung, Young-Mee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 103~118
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2010.27.1.103
Recently, the valuation of patented technology has been greatly emphasized, and patent citation has been accepted as a very useful index of this technology. In this study, we performed correlation analyses between the patent citation counts and 17 explanatory variables of morphological, technological, and conceptual factors with a test dataset of U.S. patents in five subject fields. Seven variables having 5% or more standardized variances(
) with patent citation counts were identified; number of pages, number of claims, reference-average-citation rate, patent increase/decrease rate, strength of bibliographic coupling, co-citation counts and document similarity. The result of the ANOVA test shows that the mean values of these variables vary among most subject fields.
A Study on the Customer Perceptions of Service Quality for Library E-Service: Based on Zeithaml & Bitner`s Model
Lee, Seong-Sin ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 119~136
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2010.27.1.119
The purpose of this study is to suggest a revised model for library e-service quality research based on Zeithaml & Bitner`s model. To achieve this purpose, this study reviews the previous literature related to the study of service quality and e-service. According to the study results, `physical quality` is the most important factor which influences on the customer perceptions of library e-service quality. Furthermore, this study suggests eight service quality dimensions of `physical quality` for library e-service. In addition, customer`s personal factors and previous experiences with similar services can be regarded as important factors which influence on the `physical quality` of library e-service.
A Study on Implementation of Library Course Pages
Lee, Mi-Hwa ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 137~163
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2010.27.1.137
Library course pages are an integrated service providing both course management information and library resources as one gateway to strengthen university libraries` information services. It is possible to associate course management system and library resources, and to provide course-specific information rather than library interface with various searching gateways. In the case of foreign university libraries, library course pages have been developed more effectively and variously for university`s environment and characteristics, and have been built for all the courses in a university by system processing, not manually. In foreign libraries, there are many sophisticated, dynamic, database-driven house-developed and vendor-developed systems for library course pages than hand coded HTML pages. But in Korea, there is a lack of awareness of the importance of library course pages among librarians, and the programs of library course pages have not yet been developed. Therefore, this study is to build the model for library course pages using literature reviews and case studies. Then, this study could also lay the foundation for effective library services and the system development of library course pages.
A Study on the Evaluation of the Law School Libraries
Kim, Won-Man ; Lee, Jee-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 165~183
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2010.27.1.165
This study investigated factors and issues for law school library evaluation. Also, this study suggested the roles and guidelines for law school libraries to perform its own role and function. To carry out the research, surveys were conducted with the law librarians. Then surveys were conducted to investigate law school students` demands and behaviors. Especially this study evaluated law libraries which were not carried out independently and professionally until now and meaningful as it thoroughly investigated users` demands and behavior with law school libraries and function and roles of law librarians. To facilitate law school library services and functions, quality of the collections, librarians` role, and users` needs should be considered as well as buildings and physical facilities. Particularly, users` needs assessment and librarians` opinion survey will be imperative in implementing evaluation.
Study on Strategies for Improving Application of Archived Data: Focused on International and Domestic Journal Articles
Jung, Young-Im ; Choi, Ho-Nam ; Choi, Seon-Heui ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 185~206

Since core scholarly journals have been digitalized, demands on the perpetual access and long-term preservation of subscribed digital information resources by libraries are increasing. Various institutions and organizations have performed the preservation activities of digital scholarly resources for the purpose of responding those demands. This paper illustrates the National Digital Archive(NDA) system proposed and developed by KISTI and discusses on the NDA strategies which aim to improve the usability of archived journal articles. In addition, NDA strategies of KISTI have been compared with those of international researches and the economic validity of NDA has been verified by analyzing NPV, BCR and IRR. Legal system for improving the application of the archived data should be studied next and high value-added data services have been suggested as our future studies in the final section.
A Study on the Open Access Policy to Public Funded Research Articles
Joung, Kyoung-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 207~227
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2010.27.1.207
This paper studied on the open access to public funded research articles in Korea. The 18% of articles published in the journals of the Korea Research Foundation was the output of research that received public fund. The field of engineering science had the most number of public funded articles and the most frequently supported funding agency was the KRF. But most of the public funded articles in Korea has been serviced through the commercial DBs, whereas the small number of articles serviced freely through the Korea Research Memory and NTIS. This paper proposed that the KRF will have to develop the open access policy focus on the engineering science.
Analysis on Online Research Guides of University Libraries
Choi, Sang-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 229~248
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2010.27.1.229
Research has taken priority of many activities in universities and it has eventually brought the heat on research support services of libraries to meet high expectation of university researchers. To identify the major content areas and service methods of research guides serviced through digital libraries of universities, this study investigated research guides of 60 university libraries in North America and Korea. As a result, 13 categories for research guide contents were identified and 5 crucial areas for the contents development were suggested. It also analyzed providing methods of online research guides and communicating methods between librarians and users. Librarians were identified as the prime human resource to develope and manage research guides, which will play an important role in expanding diversity of librarians` roles in the future.
A Study on the Evaluation Methods of Research Institution: Based on the h-index and its Variants
Park, Ji-Yeon ; Kim, Jung-Eun ; Min, Yoon-Kyung ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 249~267
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2010.27.1.249
The h-index is a new tool for measuring research outputs based on citation and many variants of h-index have been proposed to improve the weaknesses of h-index. The h-index and its variants can be applied to institutional evaluation in three different ways. We worked out 447 practical cases of professors from 10 business schools and examined h-index and its variants. And then we compared three evaluation methods of research institution based on the h-index and its variants.
A Study on Journal Impact Measurement with Hirsch-type Indices
Kim, Pan-Jun ; Lee, Jae-Yun ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 269~287

The journal impact factor(JIF) of the Thomson Reuters(ISI) has been widely used to assess the impact of journal as well as its quality. However, the JIF contains its critical limitation, in which it does not measure the impact of journal but the average impact of articles in journal. Besides significant number of problems of the JIF has been noticed. Furthermore, given the limited coverage of domestic citation index database in comparison to those of international citation index, it is necessary to apply a more appropriate index with a high level of discriminating power. This study, therefore, aims to introduce some practical methods to measure the impact of domestic journals by using the Hirsch-type indices. As the Hirsch-type indices has been often used for overcoming the limitations of the JIF in worldwide, we hope that our research outcome offers an effective alternative to gauge the impact of journals more accurately. Consequently, using the variations of the h-index(
-index) or the sum of issue level(issue based h-index, issue based f-index), we argue that it would improve the discrimination capacity of the Hirsch-type indices significantly and that we can measure the impact of domestic journals more clearly.
A Study on the Accreditation of LIS Master`s Programs in ALA
Nam, Tae-Woo ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 27, issue 1, 2010, Pages 289~319
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2010.27.1.289
The Council of the ALA has designated Committee on Accreditation to be responsible for the execution of the accreditation program of the ALA and to development and formulate standards of education for graduate programs of library and information studies leading to master`s degree. The vast majority of employers require an ALA-accredited master`s degree for professional positions in the field of library and information science; therefore, graduating from an ALA-accredited program enhances your career mobility and provides greater flexibility in the types of jobs for which you qualify. ALA-accredited master`s programs can be found at colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico.
