Lee, Eung-Bong ; Lu, Bum-Jong ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 34, issue 4, 2000, Pages 49~67
The purpose of this study is to suggest knowledge-based digital library model that is applicable in korea university library. This paper provides brief accounts of research and development trends of digital library in referring some major digital library projects that are in progress, or just completed. There follows a suggestion of eight essential modules for knowledge-based digital library system, that are infrastructure development of dissertation presentation and database construction, management and service of collections, infrastructure construction of journal service, development of unified viewer, database conversion, distributed & integrated retrieval system, cyber campus(private work space), and database connection.
An Analysis of User Needs for User-Centered Information Retrieval System Design of University Library
Noh, Jin-Goo ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 34, issue 4, 2000, Pages 69~95
The purpose of this study is to derive system design factors and to analyze user needs of university library for design of user-centered information retrieval system. The result of this study can be summarized as follows: First, the concept of 'users-centered' in digital environment where the supporting role of intermediaries is growing bigger than before in the interaction with remote information retrieval system can be defined as the new concept of 'expansion of knowledge'. Second, 6 kinds of system design factors derived for user-centered information retrieval system design of the university libraries. Third, The user needs that examined and analyzed through the questionnaires made by user-centered approach according to the design factors should be considered for system design.
A Study on the Organizational Culture of University Libraries
Yoon, Hye-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 34, issue 4, 2000, Pages 97~121
This study attempts to identify a profile of the university library's overall organizational culture and to analyze the difference of the organizational culture according to library's characteristics(size, location, control and unit). A questionnaire that is based on the competing values framework is used to survey staff in university library. In conclusion, the highest score is in the internal process quadrant(39.92), toward consolidation and continuity, but emphasizing control aimed at stability. And the weakest in the overall culture profile is the open systems quadrant(13.27) which may indicate that external support and resource acquisition are not strong measures of effectiveness to the staff. Research on university library organizational culture using both qualitative and quantitative method needs to be further considered. Furthermore, the strategy in library organizational culture for library administrator to manage human resources efficiently needs to be developed.
Qualitative Study on Organizational Culture of an Academic Library: A Case Study of New Millennium Library
Lee, So-Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 34, issue 4, 2000, Pages 123~142
The purpose of this study is to explore the culture of an academic library, fictitiously titled the New Millennium Library(NML). The study employed various research methods: pilot interviews with academic library workers, field observation at NML, a value survey conducted among NML workers and structured interviews with selected volunteers fromthe pool of survey respondents.

Dissemination Policy of Digital Geographic Information to Improve User Accessibility
Seol, Mun-Won ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 34, issue 4, 2000, Pages 143~160
The primary purpose of the present study is two-fold: i) to analyze the level of understanding and perception of stakeholders on the dissemination policy of digital geographic information and ii) to explore the policy direction to enhance the user accessibility based upon stakeholder analysis. The study is composed of descriptive analysis with extensive literature review and empirical analysis. The empirical analysis employs qualitative method as well as quantitative one, articulating perception of stakeholders in a comparative manner and suggesting policy directions. Based on the interview and the survey results, the study proposes the overall directions of dissemination policy to facilitate the efficient use of digital geographic information.
Part-Worth Estimation of the University Library Factors By Conjoint Analysis
Park, Il-Jong ; Shin, Sang-Heun ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 34, issue 4, 2000, Pages 161~174
In this conjoint analysis, the objectives of the research are to derive structural part-worth level estimations by the conjoint factors and individual levels from the university library functional factors. The major findings of this study are; (1) The level of temperature of the library is statistically the most important one for the research samples, and (2) Facility factors and its levels as well as operation factors and its levels are statistically shown as less important variables.
