There is a strong correlation between library resources and research productivity, as measured by publications and researcher honors. Therefore, first-class information resources of the academic and research libraries are essential to a productive research infrastructure in Korea. The principal aim of this paper is to develop a structure and framework of KORLIN (Korean Research Library Network) for providing seamless access to the analogue and digital information resources of university and research libraries from workstations of researchers.

Kim Young-Gi ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 39, issue 1, 2005, Pages 45~58
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2005.39.1.045
This Paper is a comparative study of feature selection methods for Korean web documents clustering. First, we focused on how the term feature and the co-link of web documents affect clustering performance. We clustered web documents by native term feature, co-link and both, and compared the output results with the originally allocated category. And we selected term features for each category using
, Information Gain (IG), and Mutual Information (MI) from training documents, and applied these features to other experimental documents. In addition we suggested a new method named Max Feature Selection, which selects terms that have the maximum count for a category in each experimental document, and applied
(or MI or IG) values to each term instead of term frequency of documents, and clustered them. In the results,
shows a better performance than IG or MI, but the difference appears to be slight. But when we applied the Max Feature Selection Method, the clustering Performance improved notably. Max Feature Selection is a simple but effective means of feature space reduction and shows powerful performance for Korean web document clustering.

In the era of knowledge and information society, specialists with a specific concentration are more appreciated than broad knowledge. Therefore, it is a growing trend that universities and departments restructure their vision and plans to foster specialized professionals. While responding to the needs of working libraries and adhering to the basic educational goals, the Programs of the library and information science sector should be flexible to the external changes. In this sense, each university should develop customized curriculum based on its related policies, resources, and surrounding circumstances, with an emphasis on specialization over standardization. This paper discusses how to build specialized education programs in line with specific environments that each university is surrounded with, and by doing so, raise information professionals with specialized concentrations.

The Impact of the Bunko Movement on School Library in Japan
Kwon Eun-Kyung ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 39, issue 1, 2005, Pages 105~126
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2005.39.1.105
This paper investigates the Bunko, the center of Japanese children`s reading movement, and its impact on the development of Japanese school library. Paper is consisted by two parts , one subject is the programs and the law made by government which is related to either the school library or children`s reading, the other is Bunko movements initiated by citizen mostly mothers who wish to improve their children`s reading environment. The Bunko movements started in 1960`s and motivate the establishment of public libraries in 1970`s, and it has triggered activating the school library after early 1990`s. By analyzing the relationships of the two subjects it can be concluded that they are tightly connected each other by emphasizing the function of school library not as a teaching-learning center but as a reading facility. It makes difficult for the Japanese school library to establish the most important function of supporting curriculum.

Ko Seong-Soon ; Kang Hye-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 39, issue 1, 2005, Pages 127~145
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2005.39.1.127
Today we are preparing to accept the ubiquitous library age. This article will serve to define the concepts of the hybrid library, the gateway library and the ubiquitous library which hold the advanced concepts of the digital library. It will review the main projects about them in order to portray what the future libraries will be like and how they can be developed. In particular, the eLib program of the hybrid library, the gateway projects by Harvard University and Penn State University, and the ubiquitous library projects in Carnegie Melon University and Maryland University will be surveyed, through which the characteristics of the information services being operated by the ubiquitous libraries will be scanned.
South Korean Universal Service and Korean Reunification: A Policy Analysis
Jeong Bun-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 39, issue 1, 2005, Pages 147~166
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2005.39.1.147
The purpose of this study is to redefine the concept and scope of universal service and to develop universal service policy of South Korea for Korean reunification. The basic assumption of this study is that well developed universal service may contribute to the eventual reunification by ensuring equal access to information resources for the two peoples. The theoretical foundation of this study includes social capital and diffusion of innovations theory. This study uses policy analysis as both data collection and data analysis, more specifically qualitative policy analysis with triangulation for improving credibility. Data for the analysis were collected through legislation, other policy documents, and major agreements between North and South Korea related to informatization and unification. This study, identified the major characteristics of universal service and explored the current universal service in South Korea by analyzing major poicy instruments of South Korea. In addition, this study presented a great possibility of cooperating in telecommunication policy and telecommunication infrastructure. Consequently, this study proposed policy recommendations in five areas: 1) redefining the scope of universal service, 2) developing a unified telecommunication infrastructure, 3) developing policy instruments, 4) restructuring government organizations, and 5) creating a participatory universal service model for Korean reunification.

A Study on the Adoption of the FRBR Model
Lee Sung-Sook ; Kim Tae-Soo ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 39, issue 1, 2005, Pages 195~220
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2005.39.1.195
This study examines the concept of the FRBR model of IFLA, which stratifies the bibliographic relationships between related works and bibliographic records and effectively links them, as well as the problems occurring in the applied cases. Moreover, it modifies the FRBR model by accepting the excluding perspectives of main entry heading and introducing ISTC as a linking device of the related work. This study examines the validity of the M-FRBR model by applying it to Korean literature, resettles the data elements of MODS based on the M-FRBR model. and realizes a bibliographic system based on the modified record format.
Efficiency in the Provision of Library Services Using Data Envelopment Analysis
Kim Sun-Ae ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 39, issue 1, 2005, Pages 221~239
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2005.39.1.221
This Paper assesses the relative efficiency of public library services by examining the relationship between library inputs and library outputs in library systems. Using Data Envelopment Analysis, this study derives efficiency scores in the provision of library services for 21 public libraries in Seoul. The data are survey observations for 2002. We employ total holdings, total serials, and total acquisitions as inputs, and total circulations and reader visits as outputs. The result shows that the subject libraries operate at just
efficiency, i.e., inputs could be reduced by one-three without sacrificing output if all libraries were as efficient as the benchmark 4 identified by DEA. Too many total collections are the main source of inefficiency.

This study examines web query types and topics submitted to Naver during one year period by analyzing query logs and click logs. Query logs capture queries users submitted to the system, and click logs consist of documents users clicked and viewed. This study presents a methodology to classify query types and topics. A method for click log analysis is also suggested. When classified by query types, there are more site search queries than content search queries. Queries about computer/internet. entertainment, shopping. game, education rank hightest. The implications for system designers and web content providers are discussed.
A Study on Friends of Libraries Groups: Libraries Need Friends
Kim Young-Seok ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 39, issue 1, 2005, Pages 279~294
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2005.39.1.279
This study aims to examine and analyze the operations and activities of Friends of Libraries groups in foreign countries. Friends of Libraries are groups of people who are voluntarily associated in order to assist libraries in their work. They have been involved with various libraries in many countries for almost a century. They support libraries by raising funds, working as volunteers, performing P.R. activities, operating political campaigns and being involved in the community. Nowadays. Friends groups are considered more important than at any time in their history because they provide such diverse support. Thus, new groups are being established in many countries. This study suggests that the establishment of Friends groups could improve library operations and services in Korea.
