Yu Hae-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 33, issue 1, 1999, Pages 5~22
This research aimed at the investigation of the effectiveness of bibliotherapy for depressed older adults 65 years of age and older, The efficacy between interactive bibliotherapy and reading bibliotherapy was also compared and analysed. For implementing the research, 22 subjects, aged 65 or over. were recruited from the community on a volunteer basis to Participate in a bibliotherapy program. Initial screening of potential participants was conducted by testing the measurement of depression. Experiment results were analyzed via t-ananlysis(SD, P, T) and
between and within ANOVA calculated by SPSS program. The results of the analyses supported hypotheses 1, 2, and 3, focusing the efficacy of interactive bibliotherapy as well as reading bibliotherapy. The analysis of hypothesis 4 was revealed that the effectiveness of interactive bibliotherapy was superior to that of reading bibliotherapy in the score of BDI and HRSD, while there was no statistical significance in the score of DAS.

Kang Sook-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 33, issue 1, 1999, Pages 23~48
The purposes of this study were to define the current status of information infrastructures and electronic information retrieval systems in university libraries in Korea, to assess the impact of information technology on library collection development in Korea universities, and to determine the relationship between electronic information retrieval service and library collection development. Data was collected by a mail survey. Questionnaires were mail in December, 1997 to all 134 4-year university libraries. Approximately 78 percent of the questionnaires was returned. The data taken from the survey instruments were analyzed with the analysis of variance(ANOVA) test of SAS program.

Yoo Kil-Ho ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 33, issue 1, 1999, Pages 49~65
The purpose of this study was to examine the impacts of individual factors, such as demographic characteristics, personality types and cognitive styles, on job satisfaction of university librarians. The study further investigated the relationships and interaction effects among those factors. Three independent variables examined were demographic characteristics (sex, age, year at work, and position), personality types (Type A and Type B), and cognitive styles (Held-dependence and Held-independence). The dependent varilable was the level of job satisfaction. five factors that affect the level of job satisfaction were the nature of work, salary level promotion practices, supervision style, and the relationships with co-wokers. The number of subjects participated in the study was 166 university librarians working in Pusan area. The SPSSWIN package was used for statistical analysis.
Modeling the Citation Environment Factors Influencing Citation Motivations
Kim Kap-Seon ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 33, issue 1, 1999, Pages 67~86
It needs to be considered that citing is net a static process but a dynamic process which is to produce to reproduce and to distribute knowledge by the interaction between societies surrounding the citer. This study begins by briefly acknowledging that citation is a universal practice in terms of establishing citer's own basis of research on the basis of the relation to previous studies and persuadeing potential citer to cite his/her research product. This study, however, is a preliminary attempt to examine the premise that although citing is a unversal practice. but citer motivations can be influenced by various citation environmental contexts surrounding the citer. This study presented general citation motivations derived from previous studies: (1) substantial motivations - conceptional and methodological citations 2) persuasive motivations - positive, applied, and negative citations, (3) perfunctory motivations - perfunctory and bibliographic citations, and (4) social relation motivations - personal connections and knowledge familiarity citations. In addition, this study identified citation environment factors affecting these citation motivations: (1) citer and documentation factor, (2) social and cultural environment, (3) information environment, and (4) international knowledge system environment. Each citation environment factor presented should be interpreted not as a separate factor, but rather as a close interrelation among these environment factors, Finally, the model of the citation environment factors developed in this study was discussed in the aspects of the relationship between citation motivations and their citation environment factors. This study suggested that further research should be conducted in order to examine these relationships more empirically and citation should be considered as a social product reflecting the interaction between citer and various citation environments.
A Study on the MARC Format for Classification Data
Oh Dong-Geun ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 33, issue 1, 1999, Pages 87~111
This article investigates the functions, needs, and developments of the MARC format for classification data. and recommends the development for the KORMARC format for classification data. It ae analyzes the record structure, content designation and the content of it mainly based on USMARC format. Structure and content designation are almost same with those of the bibliographic and authority formats. The data fields divided into functional blocks based on their functions. Record contents of the data in the fixed-length fields include more elements on the classification numbers, including type of number, classification validity, standard or optional number, synthesized number. Variable fields can be grouped into several blocks, inducing those for numbers and codes: for classification numbers and terms; for references and tracings; for notes fields: for index terms fields, and for number building fields. Data in each fields of this format have the same contents with those in other related fields as soon as possible. This article analyzes the content in each data fields in detail.
A Study on the Elements of Indexing and Abstracting on the World Wide Web
Choi Jae-Hwang ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 33, issue 1, 1999, Pages 113~128
Although traditional printed materials m indexed and abstracted by human beings with tools like thesaurus or controlled vocabulary, information resources on World Wide Web(WWW) are automatically indexed and abstracted without human beings efforts. It would be useful to investigate what major differences are in processes and in elements of indexing and abstracting between traditional printed materials and information resources on WWW. After discussing how WWW search engines work, six major WWW search engines were chosen for this study. Then, 17 indexing elements, 11 abstracting elements, and 2 meta elements were examined. Overall trends and issues for the future development of indexing and abstracting on WWW are also discussed.
A Comparative Study on a General Culture concerning Subject Specialist Librarianship
Kang Mia Hye ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 33, issue 1, 1999, Pages 129~144
The purpose of this research is to compare the opinions of three different groups - subject specialist librarians(group I) . students of department programs(group II) and students of college programs(group III) - as to whether these groups have a different way of thinking from each other concerning a general culture for subject specialist librarianship. Questionnaire are carried out for this research and the responses analyzed to draw a conclusion. Major findings are as follows: 1) The subject specialist librarianship to be important to all three groups and a desirable academic career of group I shows a tendency to have both B.A. degree in the subjet field and M.A. degree in library & information science,
of group II and
of group III appear to be belonging to either minor or double major programs, 2) the 37-45 major credits to be ideal to group I & III, and 46-55 group II, 3) a knowledge in 'Computer' and 'English' is mostly demanded to all three groups as the general culture for subject apecialist librarianship, 4) theoretical courses to be very important to group I and technical courses to group II & III, 5) the collection and access of library materials to be regarded to all three groups as an important role for future librarians.
The Relationship between Primary and Secondary Literature
Oh Dong-Woo ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 33, issue 1, 1999, Pages 145~160
The literature may be divided into two broad categories : primary and secondary literature. Primary literature comprises documents which contain the full text of the author's work. On the other hand secondary literature, such as indexes, abstracts, bibliographies reviews and surveys, provides signposts to the primary literature. This paper intended to examine and analyze the relationship between primary and secondary literature through the previous research and the theory, and the actual study which compared it with the lists of journals in three secondary literatures: Library and Information Science Abstracts(LISA). 1998; Library Literature (LL), 1998; Information Science Abstracts (ISA), 1998. Some of the problem involved in the study of journal overlap and coverage patterns of secondary services are discussed. Conclusions are drawn about the impact on library and information science selection policies and organization of library collections.
