An Analysis on the Juvenile Books on Korea and Japan in the WorldCat
Yoon, Cheong-Ok ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 5~23
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.005
The purpose of this study is to analyze the characteristics of juvenile books on Korea and Japan in WorldCat and observe the possibility of diffusing knowledge on each country. The distribution of bibliographic records of books published from 1993 through 2012, and especially the books published in 1997, when the numbers of books on both countries were the closest, were analyzed in detail in terms of language, genre, subject headings, and holding libraries. The result shows much fewer bibliographic records of juvenile books on Korea than those of books on Japan, and their growing gap every year. There were also much fewer holding libraries and copies of books on Korea, published in 1997, compared to books on Japan. The texts were mostly written in Korean and in tones set for very young readers. A serious lack of diversity in subjects and genres with the focus on Korean folklores and anecdotal biographies were also observed. Therefore, there seems to be nothing much interesting to read that would help promote the diffusion of knowledge on Korea through libraries around the world.
An Analytical Approach to One-Person-Library
Chung, Jun-Min ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 25~47
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.025
The cognitive approaches on library and librarianship are being questioned. These are led from what the identity of the librarian is and from what the library is. This revealed that the perception of the library should not be acquired by interpreting its appearances but by interfering its nature. In conclusion, the information service is disclosed virtually as the essence of the library. On realizing the library virtually, even a person could be entitled as the library on the underlying assumption of information service (one-person-library).

A Study on Librarians' Perception of Library User Privacy
Noh, Younghee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 73~96
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.073
This study investigates how librarians view library user privacy. To this end, a four-part survey was conducted: respondents' opinions about the privacy of library users, the degree to which library records violate the users' privacy, the role libraries and librarians fulfill to ensure user privacy protection, and librarians' need for privacy education. Results showed that librarians were very aware of privacy issues, but they perceived that library users' privacy awareness was not high. In particular, they had little knowledge of what library records or which library tasks might have the potential to violate users' privacy. In addition, awareness efforts of librarians to ensure user privacy was very low. On the other hand, the need for library user privacy educational programs was shown to be very high, and the willingness to participate was also relatively high.
Exploring Collaborative Information Behavior in the Group-Based Research Project: Content Analysis of Online Discussion Forum
Lee, Jisu ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 97~117
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.097
This study aimed to explore group members' collaborative information by analyzing the number and the content of text contributions on the online discussion board in the group-based research project. This study explored graduate students' collaborative information behavior, affective approach, and types of collaboration and support needed in the group-based research project based on Kuhlthau's Information Search Process(ISP) Model and Yue and He's Collaborative Information Behavior(CIB) Model. It is expected that the results of this study will be useful for understanding of CIB in the group-based research project and applying information literacy instruction to information user in collaboration.
A Study on Consideration in KCR4 through Testing the Description of Content Types and Media Types of ISBD and RDA
Lee, Mihwa ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 119~137
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.119
This study was to compare the description of content types(content forms) and media types of RDA and ISBD in order to revise GMD of KCR4. Test and survey were conducted as the research methods for comparing content types and media types description of RDA and ISBD. As a result, RDA content types description is better than ISBD in aspects of uniformity and correct rates. Especially, detailed list of content types in RDA could make the resources to be expressed completely, but content forms with adding the content qualification in ISBD could make the resource to be expressed with many errors. Therefore, there were some considerations to describe content types. First, content types terms in RDA need to be specified more. Second, some detailed rules need to be regulated on the combination of content qualification of ISBD. Third, the mapping tables between RDA content types and ISBD content forms need to be revised. Fourth, RDA content types list will be more applicable in KCR4 based on the uniformity and correct rates in the test. This study will contribute to analyze and suggest RDA and ISBD terms list of content types and media types for KCR4.

Lee, Jong Yoon ; Cho, Hyun Yang ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 181~205
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.181
The purpose of this study is to develop a job-stress scale for librarians who work in university libraries. The study was first conducted by analyzing existing representative job-stress scales that are used domestically and internationally. To understand the characteristic of particular job stress that academic librarians have, the in-depth interview among qualitative research methods was selected, and 15 librarians who work at a 4-year system university libraries participated in this study. Based on the results of the questionnaire survey, the reliability and validity were verified. To analyze the validity, exploratory factor analysis was carried out. To extract factors, principal component analysis was used. To extract factors, principal component analysis was used. For the rotation method, a varimax rotation was applied. A tertiary measurement tool with a total of 46 questions for 11 factors was developed after removing measurement questions that were rejected as a result of the analysis. As a result of factor analysis on the tertiary measurement tool, 11 factors were extracted. Those 11 factors include 'peer relation conflict factor(factor 1)', 'superior-subordinate relation conflict factor (factor 2)', 'work compensation evaluation factor(factor 3)', 'emotional labor factor(factor 4)', 'physical environmental factor(factor 5)', 'employment stability(factor 6)', 'job demand factor(psychological) (factor 7)', 'decision-making and responsibility factor(factor 8)', 'work complexity factor(factor 9)', 'work boundary conflict factor(factor 10)', and 'job demand factor(physical)(factor 11)'.
A Study on Collaborative Digital Information Service for Gyeonggi-Do Public Libraries
Song, Jae-Sul ; Shin, Jeong-A ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 207~226
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.207
Although it is about a decade since public libraries started to provide digital information services, lack of expertise for efficient service operation and restrictions related to copyrights have led to failure to obtain remarkable performances in uses. This study intends to analyze operation cases of domestic and overseas collaborative digital information services, as well as the current status of digital information services of libraries in Gyeonggido, thereby developing a collaborative digital information service model among public libraries on the level of local governments. This research then analyzed collaborative digital information service Web sites and surveys. Based on the analysis result, this study presented support of integrated search of possessed electronic information, Web database (DB), DB on original texts of regional records, online reference services, and mobile platforms as functional factors to embody a successful service model. As a system management road map, an eclectic model combining the merits of centralized and decentralized models was found to be more effective than a centralized or decentralized model in consideration of the characteristics of participating organizations.

Jin, Na-Young ; Song, Il-Gie ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 227~250
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.227
Jeongsa-gongshin-nokgwon (定社功臣錄券) is a document issued during the reign of King Taejong. The king appointed the vassals of merit who suppressed the First Rebel of Prince in 1398 as Jeongsa-gongshin (定社功臣) and gave them titles and rewards as described in the Jeongsa-gongshin-nokgwon document. This study explores the reasons and process of the rewards given to the vassals by way of the existing copy of Jeongsa-gongshin-nokgwon. The form and organization of the document were analyzed in detail. The titles given to the vassals were classified into each grade and their characteristics were sought. The content of the document was also analyzed in detail. The result of the study suggested the following. Jeongsa-gongshin-nokgwon is a manuscript and it consists of 3 parts: introduction (卷首), main text (本文), and ending (卷末). Names and titles given to 29 vassals of merit are listed of which 12 vassals were first grade and 17 vassals were second grade. The ranks of first-grade vassals of merit were higher than the ranks of second-grade vassals of merit. In the first-grade vassals of merit, there were relatively more relatives of the king. The rewards and privileges given to them were different, depending on their grade. The content of regulation was also different within the same grade, depending on the person. The formation and names of government officers, who worked in the temporary office in charge of rewards to the vassals of merit (Gongshin-dogam, 功臣都監), were verified by the approval signatures and last names found in Jeongsa-gongshin-nokgwon.
An Analysis of Data Management Policies of Governmental Funding Agencies in the U.S., the U.K., Canada and Australia
Kim, Jihyun ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 251~274
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.251
This study aims to analyze data management policies offered by 15 government funding agencies in the U.S., UK, Canada, and Australia, and to make recommendations for developing data management policies in Korea. For the analysis of data management policies, five criteria were suggested based on literature review as follows: 1) the definition of research data, 2) principles of data management, 3) data management plan, 4) the implementation of data management, 5) legal and ethical issues. It was found that there was no policy that covers all the criteria for the analysis. Several funding agencies, however, commonly dealt with each criteria in their data management policies. Based on the findings from the analysis, this study made the following suggestions: First, data policies provide definitions and types of research data based on the understanding of data creation in the fields of funding interests. Second, data policies include principles of data management applicable to data practices in Korea. Third, data policies implement data management plans to promote responsibility of researchers for managing data. Fourth, data policies specify data management implementations to facilitate and support data sharing practices. Fifth, data policies should minimize legal and ethical challenges in data sharing through the review of the applicability of related laws and regulations and their improvement.
A Comparative Analysis of Classical Data in KCR 4 and CCR 2
Han, Mi-Kyung ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 275~293
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.275
This study conducted comparative analysis of cataloging descriptions and rules in KCR 4 and CCR 2, as follows, for the purpose of seeking understanding of classical materials cataloging rules and networking of oriental historical data cataloging (bibliographical descriptions). First, to compare the general rules, the objects of descriptions and composition of descriptions, recording order, and punctuation and information source of descriptions were analyzed. As a result, KCR 4 is more detailed in terms of author role identifications and information source regulations and CCR2 is more detailed in terms of regulations related to printing and publications and serial publications. Second, to compare the details, the main titles and liability indications, edition details, publication details and format details, and note details. As a result, regarding the description of edition type and publication details, KCR4 has detailed regulations and CCR2 has characteristic summary in terms of note details.

Park, Sang Keun ; Park, Joseph Joo Suk ; Cho, Hyun Yang ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 296~320
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.295
The primary purpose of this study is to understand academic library service as a brand and a set of brand offerings. Based on previous studies, the study has built a classification of three distinctive perceptual aspects of library services; perceptual aspect of the service, experiential aspect of the service, and functional aspect of service. Eleven measurement items and 45 questions that are subject to the items are studied and employed from previous studies, each of the items were allocated through Item Response Theory (IRT) test and cluster analysis to filter in items of substantial contribution to the constructs as well as filtering out less contributable ones. The study shows there are 27 effective items to understand and measure library service as a brand.
A Study on the Retrieval Effectiveness Based on Image Query Types
Kim, Seonghee ; Yi, Keunyoung ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 321~342
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.321
The purpose of this study was to compare and evaluate retrieval effectiveness of three types of image perception using different retrieval methods. Image types included specific, general, and abstract topics. The retrieval method included text only search, query by example (QBE) search, and a hybrid/hybrid search. Thirty-two college students were recruited for searching topics using Google image search system. The search results were compared with One-Way and Two-Way ANOVA. As a result, text search and hybrid search showed advantage when searching for specific and general topics. On the other hand, the QBE search performed better than both the text-only and hybrid search for abstract topics. The results have implications for the implementation of image retrieval systems.
Comparing the Use of Semantic Relations between Tags Versus Latent Semantic Analysis for Speech Summarization
Kim, Hyun-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 343~361
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.343
We proposed and evaluated a tag semantic analysis method in which original tags are expanded and the semantic relations between original or expanded tags are used to extract key sentences from lecture speech transcripts. To do that, we first investigated how useful Flickr tag clusters and WordNet synonyms are for expanding tags and for detecting the semantic relations between tags. Then, to evaluate our proposed method, we compared it with a latent semantic analysis (LSA) method. As a result, we found that Flick tag clusters are more effective than WordNet synonyms and that the F measure mean (0.27) of the tag semantic analysis method is higher than that of LSA method (0.22).

is a great thinker and academic librarian in France who realized the spirit of universal public library in 17C. Based on the experiences of private librarian for 12 years in Italy and public librarian for 20 years in France, he concretized his thought for public library in 'la Biblioth
que Mazarine', which is the essence of the spirit of public library in France. He also realized the importance of librarians as specialists, for the first time, who played important roles in the development of the library community as one of the great thinkers of public library. The purpose of this research is to study 'la Biblioth
que Mazarine' where the spirit of public library had been prospered through the entire life of Gabriel Naud
A Study on Information Literacy in Social Media Age: Focusing on Redefinition, Contents and Media of Information Literacy
Oh, Eui-Kyung ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 385~406
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.385
This study redefines information literacy (IL) and recommends its contents and media (platforms). Redefinition of IL was based on concepts such as 'Information Literacy 2.0', 'Social Context', 'Metaliteracy', 'Transliteracy', 'Social Media Literacy' and related researches. 'Social Relationship', 'Media Convergence', 'Critical and Evaluative Insight on Information' was extracted by major contents of new IL. To determine program methods, mass media's 'ubiquity' was applied to the study. Some social statistics reports proved that ubiquity of social media is quite high. Finally, proposed empirical study of IL using social media by follow-up study.

Han, Jong Yup ; Cha, Sung-Jong ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 47, issue 3, 2013, Pages 407~435
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2013.47.3.407
The purpose of this study is to have the development of special libraries in Korea and produce policy alternatives and current implications as well as to analyze the management evaluation of Korea special libraries in 2011. The evaluation of 39 detailed index scored at 51.8 out of 100. There were five evaluation territory. Among them, the facility environment's score was the highest as 77.3 and manpower was 53.5, library management were 51.0. The information resource and service territory were analyzed under 50 as scored 49.3 and 45.4. Closely look at the detailed index, the highest index was 'user amenity' (96.7) from facility environment and the lowest index was 'participation record of the long-term educational training of library staff' (13.0). This study diagnosed current management of libraries and problem as well as to analyze the result of administration evaluations of special libraries in nation throughout 2012. The institution type of special libraries in Korea is very varied such as central administrative agency, government-funded research institute, local government, and education office in local-affiliated institute, business, private organization, hospital, the press and so on; therefore, the analysis result can be utilize for basic information to provide future special libraries type in order to make differentiated policy making.
