Combining Faceted Classification and Concept Search: A Pilot Study
Yang, Kiduk ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 48, issue 4, 2014, Pages 5~23
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2014.48.4.005
This study reports the first step in the Classification-based Search and Knowledge Discovery (CSKD) project, which aims to combine information organization and retrieval approaches for building digital library applications. In this study, we explored the generation and application of a faceted vocabulary as a potential mechanism to enhance knowledge discovery. The faceted vocabulary construction process revealed some heuristics that can be refined in follow-up studies to further automate the creation of faceted classification structure, while our concept search application demonstrated the utility and potential of integrating classification-based approach with retrieval-based approach. Integration of text- and classification-based methods as outlined in this paper combines the strengths of two vastly different approaches to information discovery by constructing and utilizing a flexible information organization scheme from an existing classification structure.

Lee, Yong Jae ; Kim, Kyoung Doc ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 48, issue 4, 2014, Pages 25~50
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2014.48.4.025
The purpose of this study is to analyze academic research trends of the library management in Korea. Especially, this study focused on research trend analysis according to the sub categories of library management. For this purpose, this study analyzed a total of 359 papers of library and information science from 2004 to 2013 at the four academic journals of the National Research Foundation of Korea. As a result, it was found that the sub field which showed the highest performance was `general management` and following sub fields were `measurement and evaluation`, `human resource management`, `building and facility`, `policy and system.` However, there has been relatively less performance in the sub fields like `marketing`, `organization management`, `budget management`.
An Alternative for the Enrichment of Information Literacy Instruction as a General Education
Han, Mahn-Soung ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 48, issue 4, 2014, Pages 51~70
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2014.48.4.051
The major aim of this study is to discuss the possibility whether the merging of Information Literacy and rhetoric will be able to have essential elements for being a general education subject in universities. The characteristic of rhetorical information literacy (RIL) is organized as follows. Situated literacy using heuristic method, process oriented literacy attaching importance to research, and literacy relevant to ubiquitous environment. So, it is argued that rhetorical information literate citizenry is essential for a modern democratic society. As the information literacy instruction program can be various, for example, technology oriented instruction is needed to be compared. For the practical execution of the RILI program, `asking situated questions to discover problem`, `selecting and writing review of meta study books`, and `writing visiting report of library`, and `instruction of information ethics for democratic citizens` have been proposed.
A Study on Influence Factors of the Task Performance with Utilizing SNS by School Librarians
Byeon, Hoi-Kyun ; Cho, Hyun-Yang ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 48, issue 4, 2014, Pages 71~90
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2014.48.4.071
This study aims at examining the ways which a school librarian uses SNS when performing tasks and the use of SNS with the features of the task and the organizational system run by one person affect task performance. In this study, for objective explanation of the interrelation among a librarian`s tasks and the use of SNS and performance, the model of a Librarian`s Task-SNS Technology Fit was suggested through the combination of the Technology Acceptance Model and the Task-Technology Fit. Based on the result of the survey analysis, their utilization of SNS is not just limited to personal taste nor interferes with their work. Rather, it enhances task performance owing to the characteristics of the tasks or the organization such as the organizational system run by one person.
Construction of Social Metadata Framework for Organizing Social Tags
Lee, Seungmin ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 48, issue 4, 2014, Pages 91~113
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2014.48.4.091
Although social metadata has strengths in creating amount of user-contributed resource descriptions, its function is limited because of its non-systematic characteristics. This research proposed an alternative approach to semantic organization of social metadata. It analyzed the semantics of tags created in LibraryThing in order to provide bibliographic categories for describing information resources. Social information Architecture is adopted in generating the bibliographic categories so that social metadata framework can be constructed. This framework can provide the conceptual foundations for semantically organizing social metadata and is expected to be applied to the existing approaches to automatically organize social metadata.

DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2014.48.4.173
Cultural programs in public libraries are on the rise in Korea. In this regard, this study attempts to investigate the current situation and limitations of cultural programs in public libraries in Busan metro area. This paper also suggests future strategies in order to improve the quality of such programs and to cope with changes of user demands and future trends. Data were collected from 29 public libraries in Busan Metro area. Supplementary data were also collected through qualitative interviews and brain-storming discussions with public librarians who are in charge of cultural programs in public libraries. Cases from other countries were also analyzed in terms that they might be adopted for cultural programs in public libraries in Korea.
A Study on the Transition from the Library`s Copyright Compensation Regime to the Orphan Works Regime
Joung, Kyounghee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 48, issue 4, 2014, Pages 193~214
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2014.48.4.193
Thise study focuses on the direction to the revisions of copyright law in Korea, so that orphan works in libraries can be used more widely on the Internet. In particular, this study analyzes the problems of the provisions 31 and 50 in the copyright law related to the mass digitations of orphan works in libraries. This study also reviews the Directive 2012/28/EU, 3 orphan works bills in USA, and provisions related to the orphan works in The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform(ERR) Act 2013 in UK. Finally this study suggests the 3 directions to support mass digitations of orphan works in libraries. First, digitized orphan works in libraries are to be made a transmission to the public on the Internet; Second, compensation and approval fees are not required or minimized; and third, libraries have to stop the use of the orphan works if copyright owners require. If not, libraries have to negotiate with the copyright owners about the fees necessary.
A Study on the Concept of Literacy in Library and Information Science and in Public Library Services
Song, Kyeong-Jin ; Cha, Mikyeong ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 48, issue 4, 2014, Pages 215~240
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2014.48.4.215
The purpose of this study is to examine for redefining the concept of literacy in Library and Information Science research field and in public library services. For the purpose, literature review, bibliometric analysis and case study were conducted. Based on the results, this study proposed the concept of literacy as "a comprehensive ability to use a medium, information and knowledge for solving the problems people faces in order to understand particular subjects or situations they are in" and the concept of literacy service as "the services or programs offered by public libraries in order to develop their patrons` literacies." This research also suggests four new literacy service concepts for public library services: early literacy service, adult literacy service, digital literacy service, information literacy service.
An Analysis on the Unified Policy of the Administrative System for the Public Library: Focusing on the First and the Second Comprehensive Library Advancement Plan
Cha, Sung-Jong ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 48, issue 4, 2014, Pages 241~266
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2014.48.4.241
The purpose of this study is to investigate the importance and validity of the unified policy of the administrative system for the public library through the analysis and evaluation of the outcomes and plans about the policy on the first and second Comprehensive Library Advancement Plan. In addition, this study seeks to the strategies for the public library administrative system unification by reviewing the issue details of the unification strategies. The first Comprehensive Library Advancement Plan was found to be just proclamatory without concrete and practical results through its performance analysis. The policy tasks were evaluated to lack in feasibility and specificity in the second Comprehensive Library Advancement Plan which was performed on a group of library professionals. Policy decision to determine who would be responsible for the unification into the local government was found to be valid by the results of previous research findings, policy evaluation by experts and in-depth interview survey for field practitioners. Substantial and detailed action-oriented strategy rather than bluffing and macro policy is necessary for the unification of the library administrative system. It is because we have found there exist significant issues in terms of unified approach, structure of the organization, personnel transfer and grade adjustment, property transfer, etc. through the analysis.

Han, Sang-Woo ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 48, issue 4, 2014, Pages 267~295
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2014.48.4.267
The purpose of this study is to analyze empirically relationships between learners` psychological factors, knowledge sourcing behavior and knowledge utilization outcomes and to analyze the mediation effect of social learning and relationships among learners. Another purpose is to understand learners` attitude on social learning and knowledge sourcing behavior. The main results of this study are as follows: First, regression results on relationships among learners` psychological factors, knowledge sourcing behavior, knowledge utilization outcomes show that learners` self-efficacy has a positive effect on social learning activity participation, and goal orientation has a positive influence on group knowledge sourcing and social learning activity participation. Users` experiences of social media has a positive effect on group knowledge sourcing, social learning activity participation and social learning interaction. From a knowledge utilization perspective, published knowledge sourcing positively affects knowledge reuse, knowledge application and knowledge innovation. Dyadic knowledge sourcing has positive influence on knowledge reuse. Group knowledge sourcing affects positively knowledge application and knowledge innovation. Second, social learning activity participation factor has full mediation effect on relationship between learners` goal orientation and group knowledge sourcing, and the relationship between users` experiences of social media and group knowledge sourcing. A relationship among members factor has full mediation effect on the relationship between published knowledge sourcing and knowledge reuse, and relationship between published knowledge sourcing and knowledge innovation. Third, the results of in-depth interview show that learners trust and easily collect knowledge from social network services in general. Also, they get a variety of idea for solving information problem from interaction among members in social learning community.
A Study on a Conceptual Taxonomy of Author Keywords of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Art and Sport in the Korea Citation Index (KCI) by Analysis of its Meaning and Lexical Morpheme
Ko, Young Man ; Kim, Bee-Yeon ; Min, Hye-Ryoung ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 48, issue 4, 2014, Pages 297~322
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2014.48.4.297
The purpose of this study is to analyse the meaning and lexical morpheme of author keywords of humanities, social sciences, and art and sport in the Korea Ciation Index (KCI) and to propose a conceptual taxonomy of the author keywords. Four top-level concept categories such as `Substance, Abstraction, General/Common, and Object` are replaced by seven more concrete categories such as `object, action/function, property, theory/method, format/framework, general/common, and Instance`. In the middle and lower-level concept categories, the hierarchical structure is simplified and the unbalance of term distribution is reduced by creating, subdivision, integration, elimination, and movement of the categories. The result of the test based on the STNet shows that the replaced taxonomy of concept categories has the effects of making the term allocation more balanced and properties of terms more detailed.

The Librarian`s Emotional Labor at the University Libraries: Focusing on the Relationship among Supervisor`S Emotional Intelligence, Social Support and Library Service Level
Min, Sook Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 48, issue 4, 2014, Pages 345~376
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2014.48.4.345
This study examined (1) what effect emotional labor has on an university library, focusing on (2) the relationship among a supervisor`s emotional intelligence, the extent of social support and the level of library service on job performance. The survey period took place from 14 Oct. to 4 Nov. 2013. 533 librarians at 13 public and 28 private university libraries were included in the survey. Of the 533 surveys distributed, 529 were returned and used in the final analysis. SPSS Win 21.0 was used for statistical analysis, factor analysis, regression analysis and differential analysis. The survey also shows that a librarian`s emotional labor affects emotional intelligence of supervisor, social support and library service level positively. This finding is not the case for the employees in the general service industry. Because the librarian is professional and manages stress better than general employees. This research suggest the following practical measures. Educational programs for librarian`s emotional intelligence should be planned in order to improve library service.
