Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 40, issue 1, 2006, Pages 13~37
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2006.40.1.013
Using Grounded Theory. the present study was to discover structure and process of pregnant women's information seeking experience through identifying concepts and relationships of the experience. In-depth interviews were conducted with 16 Participants selected by theoretical sampling. The findings were : 1) Pregnant womens' information seeking was caused by Acceptance of Pregnancy . 2) The phenomenon of information seeking was for Maintaining Normalcy to Pregnancy(MNP), 3) MNP occurred in connection with Perceived Anxiety and Desire to Know 4) Action/interaction Strategies to MNP were related to the Awareness of Ways Acquiring Information. Previous Knowledge. Self-Regulation, and Information Access Environment. 5) Action/interaction Strategies to MNP were Seeking Diagnostic Data of Antenatal Care. Seeking Standard Knowledge. Seeking Experience. and Seeking Emotional Support. 6) As consequences of taking strategies, pregnant women were experienced in Sufficient. or Insufficient. 7) A three-stage process of information seeking was discovered : Comparing, Contextualising, Making sure. 8) In terms of change of information needs during pregnancy, a four-phasic process was discovered. Acceptance Phase. Adjusted Phase, Focusing Phase, and Transitional Phase. Based upon these results. it needs to generate a substantive theory contributed to holistically explain and predict pregnant women's information seeking behavior.

With the developments in the areas of IT and internet, the portal sites have provided a variety of services. The explosive growth of portal sites based on IR services has a great influence on information services and types of information provided typically by libraries. Because of various and useful information services, information users consider portal sites as a more useful information resource. With the user's changes in information resource the portal sites can be a threatening competitor to libraries as a information resource. To deal successfully environmental changes around libraries. IR agency service can be best solution. IR agency service is a sort of more advanced and expanded information services for information users who can not connect to internet or has no skill on IT area. In this paper, information users' opinion on their internet using behavior and IR agency service was collected and analyzed. Based on the result of survey. this paper proposes how to provide IR agency service and its expecting effect for libraries, especially public libraries.

Kim, Ji-Hun ; Kim, Tae-Soo ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 40, issue 1, 2006, Pages 293~314
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2006.40.1.293
To maintain consistency of terms in information retrieval process, it is necessary to present the meaning of terms definitely in thesaurus. Therefore, most of thesauri has presented meaning of terms through basic relationships or scope notes. But. thesaurus including standardized definitions in contents and form has been proposed lately. This study was performed to make standardized definitions and extract relationships in contents of defining models. Also, expanded thesaurus was constructed being integrated and replaced standardized definitions and extracted relationships into the existing thesaurus. As the result. this study has shown a possibility for further development of thesaurus.
An Experimental Study on the Effectiveness of Education for Information Literacy
Lee, Jung-Yeoun ; Choi, Eun-Ju ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 40, issue 1, 2006, Pages 315~334
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2006.40.1.315
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of education for information literacy by measuring information literacy of selected experimental group and controlled group from university students. Information literacy of each group was measured through structured questionnaires before and after taking the instruction course. The result showed there was a significant difference between two groups after the instruction. and the effectiveness of information literacy showed especially high in the area of information ethics and information analysis. It was also revealed that the education for information literacy is not affected by basic environmental factors at all. Also. students taken the course showed strong self-confidence and positive recognition in information literacy and library use, thus proved that education of information literacy is highly effective both in cognitive and attitudinal side for university students as a liberal arts course.
