A Content Analysis of Journal Articles Using the Language Network Analysis Methods
Lee, Soo-Sang ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 31, issue 4, 2014, Pages 49~68
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2014.31.4.049
The purpose of this study is to perform content analysis of research articles using the language network analysis method in Korea and catch the basic point of the language network analysis method. Six analytical categories are used for content analysis: types of language text, methods of keyword selection, methods of forming co-occurrence relation, methods of constructing network, network analytic tools and indexes. From the results of content analysis, this study found out various features as follows. The major types of language text are research articles and interview texts. The keywords were selected from words which are extracted from text content. To form co-occurrence relation between keywords, there use the co-occurrence count. The constructed networks are multiple-type networks rather than single-type ones. The network analytic tools such as NetMiner, UCINET/NetDraw, NodeXL, Pajek are used. The major analytic indexes are including density, centralities, sub-networks, etc. These features can be used to form the basis of the language network analysis method.

Noh, Younghee ; Choi, Won-Tae ; Yun, Dayoung ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 31, issue 4, 2014, Pages 69~102
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2014.31.4.069
In this study, we propose an approach of building a portal site that can offer integrated services for textbook through special libraries For this purpose, we analyzed previous related studies and investigated textbook portal construction sites domestically and abroad. Based on this research, we developed survey questions and conducted a survey targeting users of textbook libraries. As a result, the following projects are required for creating a textbook library: a comprehensive list of textbooks and other content construction, digitization projects of library holdings, collection and delivery of various textbook-related reference books, building a textbook database by topic, collecting and providing textbook-related research publications, a cooperation network with textbook-related organizations, and active promotion of portal sites.
A Study on Structural Relationship Among Perceived Interactivity and User Related Variables in Health Information Websites
Nam, Jaewoo ; Park, Taeyoun ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 31, issue 4, 2014, Pages 103~131
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2014.31.4.103
This study analyzed the effect of perceived interactivity in health information websites on users. First, this study analyzed the effect of users' individual characteristics on the perceived interactivity. As a result, hypochondriasis had a negative relationship with perceived interactivity, and health literacy had a positive relationship with it. On the other hand, although the perceived interactivity had a positive effect on users' attitudes toward health information websites and expected outcomes, it did not have an effect on continuous usage intention. However, their attitudes and perceived outcomes had a positive influence on continuous usage intention and at the same time mediated the perceived interactivity. Eventually, the perceived interactivity had an effect on continuous usage intention of health information websites by the medium of other positively related variables.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the librarians' perceptions of the customized bibliographic instructions (CBI) at four-year academic libraries in Korea. The study also examined instruction librarians' perceptions of the obstacles and the factors associated with the effective adoption and delivery of the CBI. This study conducted both a survey research method and an in depth-interview. The findings of the study revealed the librarians' perception of the obstacles and facilitators in adopting and operating the CBI, which suggests useful strategies to apply in delivering the CBI in academic libraries.
An Analysis of Related Movie Information Using The Co-Word Method
Choi, Sanghee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 31, issue 4, 2014, Pages 161~178
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2014.31.4.161
Recently, many information services allow users to collaborate to produce and use information. Sharing information is also important for users who have similar taste or interest. As various channels are available for users to share their experiences and knowledge, users' data have also been accumulated within the information services. This study collected movie lists made by users of IMDB service. Co-word analysis and ego-centered network analysis were adapted to discover relevant information for users who chose a specific movie. Three factors of movies including movie title, director and genre were used to present related movie information. Movie title is an effective feature to present related movies with various aspects such as theme or characters and the popularity of directors affects on identifying related directors. Genre is not useful to find related movies due to the complexity in the topic of a movie.

Joung, Kyounghee ; Lee, Ho-Sin ; Choi, Sanghee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 31, issue 4, 2014, Pages 179~200
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2014.31.4.179
This study investigated the present situation of the use of cinematographic works and the problems of copyright. Surveys were conducted in public and university libraries for these. Also, content analyses were conducted to make sense of copyright problems in libraries. As a result, this study found that problems of copyright had occurred in various aspects related to public performance, lending, digitization and internet services according to the diversity of facilities for watching cinematographic works and library services. Also, the librarians' questions to the copyright were very various from the primary level to specific level. This study suggested that regular courses of study in library schools need to be opened to primitive understanding to copyright law and occupational training programs for librarians need to be opened to complementary education as revisions of copyright law. This study also suggested that the online Q&A services need to be started for librarians who have detailed copyright problems.
Factors Influencing Research Collaboration in the Field of Informetrics
Nam, Eunkyung ; Park, Ji-Hong ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 31, issue 4, 2014, Pages 201~227
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2014.31.4.201
The collaboration is becoming ever more widespread in scientific research. Unlike collaboration in other areas such as in a company, research collaboration has an unique feature that it is reflected by scholars' characteristics. Based on previous studies on research collaboration, five major factors are identified. We propose five hypotheses from them and examine these by using both in-person questionnaire survey and relational bibliometric analysis. The survey analysis informs individual choice factors and the bibliometric analysis informs collective consequence factors. The results of this study may have implications for science policies and digital collaboration services.
A Study of the Changes in University Library Space and their Assessment Strategies
Chang, Yunkeum ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 31, issue 4, 2014, Pages 229~248

University libraries have been attempting to reorganize their space through new building construction and remodeling to cope with the rapid changes in information and communication technologies and university environment. These changes seem to reflect the need for the shift of the university library functions toward the facilitator role of enabling continuous learning and research through space reorganization beyond the traditional supporter role of preserving and supplying library materials and providing learning space and services to university members. Despite all these changes of university library space functions, however, their assessment has been still limited to the library users' satisfaction and usage changes before and after library building renovation or new construction, calling for the need to develop proper measurement tools for evaluating the library functions as learning commons that reflect university vision and goals. Therefore, this study intends to analyze the trend of space reorganization practices in university libraries and the studies of evaluating its effect, in order to develop tools to evaluate the effectiveness of space reorganization and to provide basic data for future space reorganization and assessment strategies.

In South Korea, systems related to the provision of public data were recently implemented. As a result, policy changes have been made that are headed in the direction of actively providing open access to data held by public institutions, such as government agencies and local municipalities. The purpose of the open I will be divided into two broad. To ensure the transparency of government operations, and is intended to satisfy the right to know the people. The other one is to create national interest by utilizing the public data as one country endowment assets. In this study, we analyze the open situation of public data, were presented the improvement measures. Range of research, the public data that local government owns, to determine to have a central information and other limitations and characteristics, Seoul the beginning to the seventeen regional support municipality 228 that you have held for city districts were census. According to the research results, local governments, themselves produced, is a relatively reluctant to disclosure and understanding of the list of public data that are holdings. According to the research results, local governments, themselves produced, is a relatively reluctant to disclosure and understanding of the list of public data that are holdings, also emphasizes the conservative value than take advantage of value have had. Therefore, it was determined that there is a need to resolve several issues through disclosure via a linked data format as a strategy to increase the openness and utilization of local public data.
