A Clustering Technique Using Association Rules for The Library and Information Science Terminology
Seung, Hyon-Woo ; Park, Mi-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 37, issue 2, 2003, Pages 89~105
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2003.37.2.089
In this paper, an effective method for clustering terminologies extracted from text is proposed, in order to develope a search engine to extract relevant information from large web documents. To prevent frequency of the meaningless association rules among general terminologies, only useful association rules among terminologies are produced using database tables which consist of domain-specific terminologies. Such association rules are produced by applying the Apriori algorithm after forming transaction units from groups of association rules in a document. A group of association rules produced from a terminology forms in a cluster.
Quality Evaluation of Library Catalogs: with an Emphasis on `Utility`
Rho, Jee-Hyun ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 37, issue 2, 2003, Pages 107~134

A Comparative Study on Metadata Formats of Digital Contents
Cho, Yoon-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 37, issue 2, 2003, Pages 135~152

With the rapid growth of the Internet, digital contents have increased in a geometric progression and the types also became much varied. In order to make it easier to identify and search digital contents on the Internet, which is basically a distributed network environment, it is essential to organize and manage metadata. In this study, we have comparatively analyzed the data elements of the meta data formats currently approached from different aspects in diverse fields, so as to provide basic materials for securing interoperability of the meta data formats. We selected Dublin Core, Semantic Header, MARC, IAFA Templates, and TEI Header as the general metadata formats of digital contents used widely in all areas, and we carried out comparisons and analyses based on the literature.

A hyperlink on academic World Wide Web has started to be recognized as a form of collaborative communication network connecting individual researchers and research groups and expanding their collaboration relations by making possible easy and direct online contact among people or groups anywhere in the world. This paper describes the structure of academic hyperlinks embedded in universities` Web sites hosted at the 10 Asian countries and further, examines the association between the structure of the hyperlink network and collaborative communication pattern among those countries based on their frequency of co-authoring articles. This research found that the number of inter-hyperlinks among universities` Web sites was significantly correlated with the frequency of co-authored articles across the 10 countries.
A Study on the Preparation for Collaborative Digital Reference Service in Korea University Libraries
Kim, Hwi-Chool ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 37, issue 2, 2003, Pages 169~186
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2003.37.2.169
Most of the university libraries in Korea provide digital reference service(DRS), but the use of DRS is very low. The low usage of DRS seems to result from the lack of subject librarians, of staff, of public relations, and of managers` enthusiastic attitude and understanding of DRS. It is difficult to solve these problems because of the poor circumstances in universities. The collaborative digital reference service(CDRS) is a solution to these problems. Not only CDRS costs little but also can provide reference services in many different subject areas. Though subject specialist librarian, user-friendly system interface, system programs and administrative supports are necessary to implement CDRS, the education and training of the subject specialist librarians is the most important work to be done in the university library situation in Korea.

Roh, Jeong-Ran ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 37, issue 2, 2003, Pages 343~364

The importance of Knowledge Management (KM) can be easily recognized in many diverse aspects of the theory studies and in KM`s efforts to help implement the government`s policy to innovate corporation management. The core of KM is to improve the circulation of knowledge by generation, accumulation, sharing, utilization and acquisition by learning. The improvement of knowledge circulation would result in high quality and quantity of intellectual assets in corporations and make decision-making more efficient. This, too, is the operational philosophy of the special libraries. The primary objective of this study is to promote KM by presenting KM methodology and by explaining a theoretical background and cases, based on the existing special libraries. I cite an example of a case wherein merging intellectual assets and human resources activated the company culture. The reference service system, which is the core of the special library, was used in this merging.
