Human Resource Management, Knowledge Sharing, and Organizational Performance in a Local Government
Lee, Hyang-Soo ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 29, issue 3, 2012, Pages 7~29
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2012.29.3.007
In this study, we analyzed the effects of how Human resource management affects the knowledge sharing that facilitates organizational performance. Human resource management has received very little attention in the study of knowledge management. However, main drivers of knowledge activities are individual members of an organization and thus knowledge management strategies should be discussed in relation with human resource management. The results show that human resource management was significantly positively related to knowledge sharing, and the relationship between human resource management and organizational performance was partially mediated by knowledge sharing. Lessons and implications of this study for management leadership are presented.

The proliferation of mobile and tablet PC has been collapsing down geographic boundaries. Accordingly, the global cultural and artistic activities and public cultural content exchange have been enlarged. With the spread of Web 2.0, users can easily access a variety of cultural contents. However, each local government develops applicable technical and cultural content service on their own without consulting any best practices or standards. In addition, unlike traditional contents services mobile content services should take into account the characteristics of the environment. It is also necessary to provide personalized contents in a timely manner. In order to accelerate the future mobile environment, this study presents a mobile web service practice that was developed based on the current state for mobile services and a cultural contents derived from standards and effective deployment of the service plan focusing on the case of "The Encyclopedia of Korean Local Culture".

Kim, Ji-Hyun ; Lee, Jung-A ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 29, issue 3, 2012, Pages 61~77
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2012.29.3.061
This study investigated what web users share on a health website and how the demographic characteristics of users reflect health information sharing behavior. By using a content analysis method, this study analyzed 1,042 randomly chosen messages in the discussion board of a health website. The results revealed that the health website users emotionally supported other users, provided health information, and built relationships between them. Two third of the health website users shared his/her thoughts or feelings about ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) on the health website and one fourth of the health website users connected with others who had ALS. A half of the users actively provided information as a direct response to a question. No significant differences were discerned with regard to total posting frequency by age and gender effect. However, the male users in the 50s answered questions to others more actively and tried to manage their life better than the other age groups.
A Study on the Use of Book Numbers in the National Libraries and Regional Central Libraries in Korea
Chung, Yeon-Kyoung ; Chang, Yun-Mee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 29, issue 3, 2012, Pages 79~97
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2012.29.3.079
The purpose of this study was to investigate the current status of assigning book numbers and the perceptions of librarians who assign the book numbers at two National Libraries, nine Regional Central Libraries and Jeongdok Public Library in Korea. Based upon the analysis, a better method to assign book numbers for the libraries was suggested. The most serious problem was the length of the book numbers due to the duplication of book numbers and lack of intuitiveness. Therefore, this study suggested a user-oriented way of assigning book numbers based upon combining the name of the author and the year of the publication.

DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2012.29.3.099
This study analyzed scientists information behaviors when they engage in solving specific research problems in various situations throughout the entire scientific R&D lifecycle process. In-depth interviews with a total of 24 scientists were conducted in their research laboratories, the scientists' everyday workplace and the contexts of scientific research. The theoretical and methodological frameworks employed for this study were Dervin's Sense-making, Savolainen's Everyday Life Information Seeking, and Engestrom's Activity Theory. The findings of this study informed context-specific research and information behaviors of the scientists in the 14 sub stages of the five-stage of R&D lifecycle. Specifically, the study revealed the research objectives and related information behaviors (e.g., information needs, information seeking, information sources and channels, information barriers, etc.) to achieve the objectives at each sub-stage. The study results provided essential information to re-design the information services and strategies that accommodate the scientific R&D lifecycle.

Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 29, issue 3, 2012, Pages 145~167
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2012.29.3.145
The purpose of this study is to examine the causal relationships among self-efficacy, perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, perceived playfulness, and reuse intention of SNS. The results of data analysis by structured equation model(SEM) indicate that self-efficacy significantly influences individual's perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness and perceived playfulness. Both perceived playfulness and perceived ease of use affects perceived usefulness on SNS. Individual's self-efficacy, perceived playfulness and perceived usefulness affect reuse intention of SNS. Based on the results, the theoretical and practical implications of this study are discussed.
Influences of Enneagram Personality Types on OPAC Searching and Satisfaction

Libraries are founded to ensure the intellectual freedom of citizens, and citizens have the right to confidentiality regarding their needs, information access, and information use. Protecting users' privacy is critical to safeguarding their freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and freedom of assembly. Libraries and librarians should seriously concern themselves with their users' privacy because protecting this privacy is part of their most important mission, and, in doing so, users can truly enjoy their intellectual freedom. This study extensively investigated and analyzed the possibility of privacy invasion that may occur in libraries. As a result, cases of potential invasion of privacy in libraries were summarized in the following three categories: violations occurring in the process of national or law agencies' enforcement operations; violations occurring in the process of routine library services such as circulation, reference, online searching etc.; and violations occurring by outsourcing library services.
A Study on the Analysis of College Student's Information Problem Solving Process in Team Project Activities
Bae, Kyung-Jae ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 29, issue 3, 2012, Pages 215~234
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2012.29.3.215
Recently, the importance of team based learning has emerged as the method for conducting the constructivist learning theory. College students, however, have the low preference toward team projects. Thus, this research suggested that the information literacy education should be designed to overcome the problems in team project activities after analyzing the college students' information problem solving process. The in-depth interviews were conducted twice with 10 subjects. As a result, the main problems during team project activities were task definition, judgement on relevant information, evaluation of result and process, absence of accountability and synthesis. The recommendations for information literacy course are as follows: introduction to different types of information sources, support for communication problems between team members, education of credibility judgment on information and criteria for evaluating the results.
The Future We Make Together: Cultural Heritage Institutions in the Era of Digital Convergence
Lee, So-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 29, issue 3, 2012, Pages 235~256
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2012.29.3.235
Libraries, archives and museums share the common mission of collecting and providing access to cultural heritage for the use of both current and future generations. Although the evolution of these cultural heritage institutions have taken place separately, distinguishing publications, records and 3-dimensional objects, it is expected that the pervasive digital environment will not allow the distinction remain effective for long. The present study aims at exploring commonalities and differences of the cultural heritage institutions and illuminating the necessities and possibilities of collaboration among them.

As the electronic medical records systems (EMRs) are introduced into the hospitals in Korea and the needs of chief stakehoders of medical records are changed, the environments related to creating and managing medical records has been changed dynamically. At this moment it might be meaningful to examine medical records based on records management principles rather than information management principles. The purpose of this paper is to apply the KS X ISO 1549 standards, which covers the principles of records management, to hospital medical records management and assess the current quality of medical records management, and define a few tasks of improvement for hospitals. To achieve this goal, this study has performed following activities: Firstly, principles that could be applied to medical records management were prepared for each record management steps described in the standards, such as capture, registration, classification, storage, access, trace and disposition, and 22 principles were selected from those 7 steps of the record management. Secondly, the Y hospital, which is affiliated with a medical school in Seoul, was chosen to evaluate the current situation regarding medical records management. The department head of the medical records management team in Y hospital was interviewed and the present status was evaluated according to each principle. Thirdly, tasks for improvement were suggested, in such stages as access, trace and disposition. With this study as a cornerstone, useful implications are expected to be gathered from future studies that apply standards for metadata of records, management systems for records, and record management systems to medical record management in hospitals.
