Implementation of an ILL Request System Using Z39.50 Extended Services
Chung Young-Mee ; Oh Jung-Sun ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 32, issue 1, 1998, Pages 7~26
In this study, an ILL request system was implemented using Z39.50 item order extended service. ILL requests in this system are initiated by users through a gateway acting as a Z39.50 origin for searching remote catalog databases. When users initiate a request while searching OPACs of other libraries, an extended service request PDU for item order is first sent to the home library which subsequently generates an ILL protocol message to be sent to the target library. This approach enables users to request an item online while searching. and at the same time allows the home library to retain control over the ILL transaction.
Current Status and Trends in Library and Information Services in USA
Kim Suk-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 32, issue 1, 1998, Pages 27~43
This article examines the current status and future trends in library and information services in USA, with particular emphasis on the library automation system, library cooperation, Internet andinformation services, activities of information services organizations. Client/server computing and integrated Web-based technology make it possible for libraries to build a new generation of automated library systems, and digital libraries project is the highest priority. As a cooperative effort among libraries, they formed consortia such as ARL/AAU on the national level. and CIC on the regional level, and GALILEO, LLN, OhioLink, Texshare, VIVA, ILLINET on the state level information netwok. The Internet and the World Wide Web have a huge impact, so American libraries are developing new skills to provide value-added information services using Internet resources. Lastly, recent information activities of the LC, NAL, NLM, ERIC, NTIS are described.
A Study on Demand for Multimedia Database of Specialized Information

Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 32, issue 1, 1998, Pages 45~67
The tendency of multimedia services and market of specialized information is currently much debated issur in our country. Nevertheless, the systematic investigation of demand for multimedea database is nowadays nowhere to be found. The purpose of this study is to gain a general overview of market and demand of service relating to multimedea database. At first, various definitions of multimedia, multimedia content, and multimedia database are analysed and evaluated from the point of technical and practical views. For the study on the demand for multimedia database of specialized information, database catalogue of DPCK 1997 and multimedia database on internet are analysed. After that the results of expert survey to estimate an accurate tendency of multimedia services in Korea are analysed.

Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 32, issue 1, 1998, Pages 69~96
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the quality of OPAC user interface in academic library setting, particularly on the basis of the user group's information searching behavior. Both survey and experimental methods were used for data collection. For the survey, 52 graduate students with various academic background were selected, and 8 out of 52 were chosen for the retrieval experiments using the SOLARS of the Seoul National University. The findings of this study suggest that both (unction and design of the SOLARS user interface should be improved to become a more user-friendly OPAC system.
A Study of Wise Sayings Related to Reading
Lee Man-Soo ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 32, issue 1, 1998, Pages 97~128
Recognizing the importance of reading, and with one motivation being to encourage an upright reading culture, 138 Wise Sayings related to reading by Western leaders were investigated and analyzed according to their country of origin and content as well as the nationalities and occupations, achievements and activities, and the periods of activity of he people who said them. In Wise Sayings related to reading, there are connotations of reading's significance
and so on, and the expressions vary according to the speakers' occupations. Many of the speakers of wise sayings related to reading were from the powerful and culturally-developed countries of England(36), France(17) and the United states(15), and among 168 occupations, many were engaged in literature(97), philosophy(20), and politics(13) In the field of literature in particular, poets(24), writers(24), and novelists(19) comprised about
of the total. In terms of the periods of activity, the 19th-20th century with
and the 19th century with
of the total.
A Study on the Feasibility of Full-Text Information Retrieval System Based on Document Content Structure
Lee Byeong-Ki ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 32, issue 1, 1998, Pages 129~154
In these days the online full-text database are increasing, but conventional full-text information retrieval system has been proved with high recall ratio and low precision ratio. One of the disadvantages of full-text IR system is that it is not designed to reflect the user's information need it is due to the fact that full-text IR system has been designed based on physical and logical structure of document without considering the content of document. Therefore, the purpose of the study examined feasibility of document content structure in full-text IR system by resolving such disadvantages of conventional system. 180 Journal articles have been analyzed to find common structure of document content and finally general model of the structure of journal articles were developed. The result shows that have relation to between user's cogntive schema structure, user's information need and contents structure of document. Thus it is concluded that full-text IR system need to be designed by using document content structure in order to meet user's information need more effectively.
The Correlation between Library Users' Fields of Study and the Use of Translated Works in University Libraries
Lee Hyun-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 32, issue 1, 1998, Pages 155~167
In the climate of increasing calls for academic assessment, the author undertook a study to ascertain availability of original texts and their translations in the academic library. The object of this study is to compare the use frequency of original texts by academic major of users in the university libraries. To achieve this object, the author collected the data stored in 3 Korean university library online systems from September 10th to 30th, 1995 and tested the hypotheses by using the Minitab statistical package. Libraries with multilingual collection and automated systems will find the methodology Presented here Particularly valuable.
A Comparative Study of Printed versus Digital Index and Abstract Users' Behaviour Patterns
Hoang Gum-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 32, issue 1, 1998, Pages 169~187
The primary purpose of this study is to compare printed index and abstract user's behaviours with digital index and abstract user's behaviours, and to verify of structured characteristics of a printed index and abstract. The major findings are as follows: (1) When the research topic is not specified enough, users tend to rely on printed indexes and abstracts search, whereas they utilize digital form in order to do retrospective search in the stage of research when the topic is determined. (2) Printed index and abstract users are expecting small number of literatures in search, whereas digital index and abstract users are expecting large number of literatures to be found The former are more satisfied with the result of search than the latter. (3) Digital index and abstract users experience more search failure than printed Index and abstract users. When they fail to find wanted materials, both users turn to the other form of indexes and abstracts. (4) Printed index and abstract users shows significantly less knowledge on online searching than digital index and abstract users.
