Author Notations Based on the Structure of the Author Table for Korean Libraries
Lee Jai-chul ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 1, 1970, Pages 1~58
As to the structure of author tables for the Korean libraries using the Korean alphabet Hangul for filing, no other system is understood more relevant to author notations than the analytico-synthetic system. The Korean character consists of syllables respectively dividual into 'consonant+vowel' or 'consonant+vowel+consonant,' with the first element a consonant and the second a vowel. When these elements are synthesized with figure representation, they make an enumerative two-figure table. Individualizing and assigning, therefore, are done without listing many en-tries on the table or looking up notations in ready-made enumerative author tables. We still do not have general agreements in form of entry, reading of the Japanese and Chinese names, transliteration of foreign words, and filing system. What is more, so flexible and hospitable a notation system should be adopted as to meet the anticipated changes. The writer introduces an author notation system that could make 150,000 divisions by combinating figures, thus making it possible to endure changes through readjustments. It is considered effective, convenient, and efficacious for individualization.
A Study of the Relationship Between Economic Backgrounds and Reading Interests of High School Students
Kim Doo-hong ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 1, 1970, Pages 59~75
The study tries to clarify middle and high school students' reading interests in recreational, informative, inspirational, and aesthetic reading areas 1,260 students' reading cards from 7 schools are divided into economically high, middle, and low groups, each of which is subdivided into reading objectives. The writer finds no close relationship between the students' economic status and their reading preferences. However, the study indicates that recreational books are read in the order of higher, middle, and lower economic groups and informative and inspirational books in the reversed order. The writer also finds different preferences between individuals more evident than those between groups, and recommends individualized reading guidance for students.
A Study of the Chuchih
, or 'Proofs of Providence,' with Emphasis on Its Impression and Value
Shim Woo-choon ;

The writer discusses about the value of the two-volume Chuchih
in the Toyo Bunko in terms of its history and contents. The book is an incomplete reprint without preface. However, it has no error in its contents through the three elaborate revisions.

The author shows in the first volume his hypothesis, analysis, and conclusion, of the order of the things in the universe and in the second volume tries to prove the God's existence and Divine Providence. The proofs presented are related to the scientific thoughts of the West in the 17th century.
One Aspect of Library Science in Korea with World Trends of Librarianship
Kim Se-ick ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 1, 1970, Pages 103~132
Last twenty years since the introduction of library science as a new scholarship to Korea are considered as a period of imitation and wander. We are supposed to try relevant changes in library education to settle it down and to keep up with world trends in Korea. This paper discusses development and status quo of curricula in foreign countries and tries to show a guide for the library science field in Korea. The writer makes recommendations for the improvement of curricula for Korean library schools.
The Librarianship and the Related Area Studies
Kim Choong-han ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 1, 1970, Pages 133~146
The writer tries to propose some characteristics of profession and recommend those of librarianship. In this connection, the writer tries to define 'negative' and 'positive' functions of librarianship as a profession. The writer also aims at classifying various disciplines included in library sciencee Library science has to do with such phases as educational aids, storage and retrieval of knowledge and information, and librarianship itself. The title 'Librarian' carries with it the connotation of 'professional' in the sense that professional tasks require a special knowledge and background, that librarians try to maintain quality service to clients, the knowledge and information are produced, developed, and disseminated via librarians, and that librarians are responsible for continuing education. The fact that the present stage of librarianship is generally known to adhere to negative posture and randomness might permit other institutions to replace the library's role.
