A Study of School program in the Case of Library and Information Science in Korea
Koo Bon-young ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 30, issue 2, 1996, Pages 3~50
At present, Korean universities and colleges are confronted with a strong challenge, within and without, demanding a drastic change or innovation of university education. Discussion on the propulsion of the School Program is now under way as one of the means to reform the university education With such a background in mind, we have considered what should be the desirable course of Library and Information Science in Korea. We have considered the characteristic features and roles of library and information professionals to cope with the now approaching information society and the changing conditons of educational environment We have collected the pros and cons among professors of tile School Program, and investigated the curricula of the three universities which are at present practicing the School Program. Of the 139 professors to whom we have sent the questionnaries,
responded, of which the pros were 42 and the cons were 45. The model plan for the School Program is 'departmental school program'
, which purports to adopt 'departmental school program', with the curricula and material resources being utilized in common, or to adopt joint-appointment system with the common utilization of teaching materials and the introduction of a limited dual major system. The argument against introduction the School Program was that because of the peculiar nature of the discipline itself, Library and Information Science can not be merged with any other discipline.

Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 30, issue 2, 1996, Pages 51~86
The primary purpose of this study is to verify the difference of behavioural characteristics between the subject specialists and professional searchers in searching full-text databases. The major findings and conclusions from this study are summarized as follows. Analyses of Search questions(the degree of understanding with search questions, the degree of difficulty in selecting terms, and the degree of expectation of search results), search processes(the number of search terms used, the number of Boolean operators and qualifiers used, the number of documents browsed and the search time(the connecting time, time to spend per one output document, time to spend per one relevant output document) and search results(the searching efficiency(the number of relevant documents, the ,recall ratio and the precision ratio), the search cost(the total search cost. the search cost per one output document and the search cost per one relevant output document) and the degree of satisfaction with search results) are significantly different between the subject specialists and professional searchers in searching full-text databases

The purpose of this study is to identify what fields are used to decide how to proceed to the next screen and what factors affect the selection of the fields used on the online catalog system. The initial search option chosen by the users differed statistically according to the type of online catalog system used and the type of query. However, the type of user did not affect the choices of the initial search option. On the citation list screen, the title field was the most frequently used to move to the citation screen. On the citation screen, also, the title field was the most frequently used for confirming a retrieved citation.
An Empirical Study on the Effectiveness of the Exhibits in University Libraries

Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 30, issue 2, 1996, Pages 107~125
The exhibit programs of library are considered an effective and imporant mechanism to satisfy the demand for information of library users and to innovate a library image. Accordingly, the purpose of this paper is to investigate their recognitions as to how librarians and library users think of the effectiveness of the exhibition programs and as to how the programs exert an influence upon libraries. For research methodology, this research is randomly questionnaired to 360 library users and 90 librarians in July 1995. The collected data is analyzed by such statistical methods as frequency, crosstabs, T test and annova. The analysis shows that there are interesting research findings as follw; 1. The exhibition programs are appeared to be effective for education of library users. 2. The programs are appeared to be effective for increased use of library materials. 3. The programs are appeared to be effective for public relations. 4. The programs are appeared to be effective for collection development. 5. They are revealed to have academic values like academic articles. In sum, among the opinions of librarians, they indicate that the programs are very important in activating the functions of library. Therefore, university libraries should lavishly support the exhibition programs with enough budget and exhibition planners to manage.

Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 30, issue 2, 1996, Pages 127~148
The purpose of this study is to assert the fact that School Library Media Center(SLMC) is the most important body which influences the whole process of loaming in school and at the same time it functions as a very essential infrastructure of acquiring loaming in the society. The writer analysed the studies on learning outcomes across a range of educational conditions and settings. She found that loaming outcomes are influenced positively by the educational conditions and settings that accomodate the student diversity and individualization, and loaming materials for their individual needs. It means that the outcomes of effective teaming are influenced by using teaming materials of individual student guided by teachers and teacher librarians. In case, school education furnishes desirable programs of SLMC and use it properly, students canhave enough experiences what and how they learn by using library materials during their school days. As school days are in their early days of their lifetime, they are easy to carry their way of loaming with them even after they finish school. The members of society who are accustomed to use library materials during their school days will have loaming needs for their better life. The writer wants to call it the loaming needs of society that school produces. A teaming society is composed of two factors One is the loaming needs of the people and the other is the environment to meet them. SLMC produces loaming needs, and it meets to the needs of student learning. Consequently it can be said SLMC is the infrastructure for loaming society. The author pointed out that the Educational Reformation Draft of current Government does not mention about learning materials prerequisite to enhance student loaming outcomes, especially in relation to their creativity. She concluded educators of every level of school including government officials in charge of education have to think and do something about reformation of School Library Media Center for the fulfillment of the goal of Korean Educational Reformation Draft announced by the Educational Reformation Committee Draft announced by the Educational Reformation Committee May 31, 1995.

Hong-sii Tokso-rok (홍씨독서록 or Hong's Annotated Bibliography of Korean and Chinise Book) is the only work on the history of Korean bibliographies that has the introductory notes to each class, that is description of the origin of subject fields, transition, and characteristics at the beginning of each class. This paper is aimed to examine the outline of the introductory description of class, to analyze the Four Category Classification System(사부분류법) devised by Hong Sok-chu, and to explain how the classes of Four Category Classification are set and ordered. This paper shows several characteristics in the idea of Hong's classification system. There characteristics were discovered by analyzing the content of each introduction of classes. The characteristics ale as follows First, classes are organize and arranged from the substantial problem to nonsubstantial ones. In other words, the greater the distance of the class from the substantial problem of Confucianism, the farther the order of the class will be found from the substantial problem. The order of classes is set by how the class is closed to the substantial problem in the same hierarchy. This principle is strictly applied to the Hong's classification system. Second, on the basis of democratic thought, he del·eloped the classification system. In other words, when he set up the priority of classes, he put emphasis on the democratism as a guideline. The organization of classes belong to the catagories of history (Sa-bu, 사부) and philosophy(Cha-bu, 자부) showed the application of this principle. Conclusively, this paper found that Hong did not randomly arrange the class older, but he set the class order with objective reasons and logic when he set the class order of arrangement.

The lack of an understanding of the characteristics and searching abilities of a specific user group in computer-based information systems in libraries hinders library and information science professionals in making the best decisions when designing, acquiring, and managing information systems. The objective of this study was to provide information on the characteristics and searching abilities of specific groups such as Korean college students & ones who study abroad, male & female, undergraduate & graduate students, etc. This study also has focused on the methods of loaming to use OPACs and non-user study. Questionnaire was administered to both Korean college students in the city of Taegu, Korea and students who study abroad in the state of Texas, US.A. 345 usable questionnaires were obtained and analyzed. These were analyzed using descriptive, inferential statistics, multiple correlation, and SPSS software. The. major findings of this study are: (1) There was a significant difference among specific student user groups except undergraduate and artiste-athlete students in the distribution of their knowledge about how to use OPACs: (2) There was a significant difference among specific groups in the means of their knowledge: (3) There was no significant difference among un. groups in the distribution of loaming method to use OPAC systems : (4) The correlation between the number of searching methods that the respondents knew in using OPACS and the amount of using computers (0.6635) is comparatively higher than my other correlation to the searching methods. Also, years of experience using computers, frequencies of computer use, and frequencies of OPAC use are comparatively higher than frequencies of library use and frequencies of manual card catalog un: (5) Frequencies of manual card catalog use have low negative correlations with the number of searching methods that the respondents knew in using OPACs: (6) Frequencies of manual card catalog use have little if any negative negative with OPAC and computer use. Conclusions are drawn from the findings in this paper, and recommendations an proposed when designing, adopting, or managing a new system. Topics fur future studies on the characteristics of OPAC systems and their use are also suggested.
