Acquisitions and Use of CD-ROMs at Public Libraries
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 35, issue 4, 2001, Pages 5~23
The purpose of this research is to survey the current status of CD-ROM acquisitions and use at public libraries. For this purpose, the questionnaires prepared to examine the information environments, CD-ROM acquisitions and use as well as the future plans for CD-ROM use were sent to seven public libraries in Daegu. This paper consists of the introduction, the characteristics and trends of CD-ROM publications, the present status of CD-ROM publishing in Korea, and the analyses of acquisitions and use of CD-ROMs at public libraries. It is intended to find out if there is any relationship between CD-ROM publishing and CD-ROM use at public libraries. It concludes that the CD-ROM collections of public libraries are related to the publishing of CD-ROM, but the use of CD-ROMs cannot be claimed to reflect the publishing. Some interpretations and recommendations for the results are suggested.
A Study on the Application of Registration Data to the Description of the Records and Archives
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 35, issue 4, 2001, Pages 25~50
The purpose of this study Is to investigate the possibility and the limit of the application of the registration data to the description of records and archives by analyzing of the elements in the registration of records prescribed in the Record and Archives Management Act of Korea. Registration data provides the descriptive information of records at item or file levels. And also the registration data makes an important role of providing the primary descriptive information for progressively describing the series and group level of archives by archivist, which eventually conform the principle of the multi-level description. Therefore the registration of records is one of the management process of records which makes records to be a manageable objects. In addition to that the registration of records is the first level in building the multi-level description of records and archives.
A Study on the Development of Continuing Education to Enhance the Specialization of Librarians
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 35, issue 4, 2001, Pages 51~77
The purpose of this study is to took for systematic, effective ways of providing continuing education for incumbent librarians in order that they could be more specialized in their profession. For the purpose, this research performed pervious literature reach and then a questionnaire survey for the librarians to determine their service periods and opinions, requirements and suggestions about continuing education as above and the current status of the education. The result of the study can be described as below. First, few incumbent librarians generally participate in continuing education. The participation, if any, is different in degree according to types of the librarian's library and task. Second, continuing education provided by responsible agencies is seen negative in value, but relatively positive in validity. it is agreed that the education is not easy to be provided due to a lack of time. Third, individual incumbent librarians are little devoted to continuing education, although the devotion is somewhat different according to the type of library. Fourth, an absolute majority of the librarians want the establishment of an authorities exclusively assuming continuing education service and the provision of informal continuing education related to computer during their working hours or vacation period. Fifth, the librarians under survey suggests that it is necessary for the development of continuing education to establish an exclusively responsible authorities as mentioned before and a system for evaluating each of agencies providing continuing education service, implement relevant, specific programs, introduce incentives for those librarians who receive the education and thereon make studies, help and promote librarians to be trained abroad, apply new ways of continuous education and extend the range of such educational process.
Adaptations and Expansions of DDC for Korean Libraries

Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 35, issue 4, 2001, Pages 97~122
This empirical study investigated the effect of choice of record field(s) upon which to search on retrieval performance for a large operational bibliographic database. The query terms used in the study were identified algorithmically from each target set in four different ways: (1) controlled terms derived from index term frequency weights, (2) uncontrolled terms derived from index term frequency weights. (3) controlled terms derived from inverse document frequency weights, and (4) uncontrolled terms based on universe document frequency weights. Su potable choices of record field were recognised. Using INSPEC terminology, these were the fields: (1) Abstract. (2) 'Anywhere'(i.e., ail fields). (3) Descriptors. (4) Identifiers, (5) 'Subject'(i.e., 'Descriptors' plus Identifiers'). and (6) Title. The study was undertaken in an operational web-based IR environment using the INSPEC bibliographic database. The retrieval performances were evaluated using D measure (bivariate in Recall and Precision). The main findings were that: (1) there exist significant differences in search performance arising from choice of field, using 'mean performance measure' as the criterion statistic; (2) the rankings of field-choices for each of these performance measures is sensitive to the choice of query : and (3) the optimal choice of field for the D-measure is Title.
Using the Library Mailing List for Reference/Information Services
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 35, issue 4, 2001, Pages 123~139
Describes the impact of electronic communication media on communications among reference librarians and explores the usabilities of the mailing list as an efficient means of reference services. Out of messages made to the library mailing list over the one-year period of the study, 594 postings dealing with reference questions were examined. The types of questions and the rate of responses were analyzed and some limitations to the implementation of the malling list on answering the reference questions were discussed.
A Study of Designing the Automatic Information Retrieval System based on Natural Language
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 35, issue 4, 2001, Pages 141~160
This study is to develop a new system for conducting the information retrieval automatically. The system in this study is programmed by Delphi 4.0(PASCAL) and consists of automatic indexing, clustering technique, establishing and expressing term hierarchic relation, and automatic information retrieval technique. Thus this browser system can automatically control all the processes of information searching such as representation, generation and extension of queries and construction of searching strategy and feedback searching.
Authority Control in the Digital Age: A Study of japanese Journal Titles and Corporate Names in the OPACs in Korea
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 35, issue 4, 2001, Pages 161~175
The purpose of this study is to examine how the titles and corporate names of Japanese scholarly journals are treated, and how well the authority control is implemented to assist the access with various names and forms of names to the OPACS. Without the help of either references or internal links among those names and forms of names in the DBs, users are likely to fail in getting the right results. In this study, the cataloging records for serials from the National Assembly Library, KISTI, Yonsei University and the KERIS were examined, and the comparison was made with the records from the NACIS-WebCat of the National Institute of Informatics in Japan. Major findings include (1) the lack of consistency in applying cataloging rules, (2) the lack of proper authority control in treating corporate names, and (3) the lack of references or links among names and variant forms of names. The overall improvement of cataloging practices and application of authority control is strongly recommended for enabling users to access better to those DBs of interest.

A Study on the Development of Digital Library Pathfinders for Fashion Marketing Fields
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 35, issue 4, 2001, Pages 217~238
As an exploratory study, the purpose of this study was twofold. First, to show the process for developing a pathfinder with for assessing how the end users analyze a pathfinder ("a usability test"). Second, to provide a pathfinder for fashion marketing fields. Organised especially for students of the Fashion Graduate School in Dongduk Women's University, this pathfinder included books, periodicals, Internet web sites, online stores, brands, and apparel organizations. Participants in the test evaluated the pathfinder with medium to high grade in terms of contents, classification, and quantity of resources. In particular, they acknowledged the usefulness of a pathfinder. The results could provide helpful guidelines for the design of pathfinders. In addition, this publication provides additional information that focuses on fashion marketing fields.
