Dyslexia is an obstacle for reading that should be found and treated in the early stage. Although dyslexia is not a common symptom appeared many people, they are alienated group which the government should pay attention and support. Yet the government of the Republic of Korea has low awareness and interests on dyslexia. This study aims to survey on measuring the awareness of parents, elementary school teachers, kindergarten teachers, and school librarians, who should sensitively distinguish dyslexia among children in its full-swing time, and to find their perception gaps. In order to gain result, this study conducted questionnaire survey targeting parents, elementary school teachers, kindergarten teachers, and school librarians resided in metropolis, small and medium sized cities, and farming and fishing village, with the total number of 623 people, and analyzed their answers using SPSS 20.0 program. The research shows that awareness on dyslexia depends on their jobs, residence, gender, knowledge on dyslexia, and experience in encountering a person in dyslexia.

Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 49, issue 1, 2015, Pages 45~67
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2015.49.1.045
The purpose of this study is to analyse the semantic relations of terms in STNet, a structured terminology dictionary based on author keywords of humanities, social sciences, and art and sport in the Korea Citation Index (KCI) and to describe the procedure for optimizing the relation types and specifying the name of relationships. The results indicate that four logical criteria, such as creating new names for relationships or limitation of typing the relationship by the appearance frequency of same type, consideration of direction of relationship, reflection to accept the existing name of relationships, are required for the optimization of the typing and naming the relationships. We applied these criteria to the relationships in the class "real person" of STNet and the result shows that 1,135 out of 1,743 uncertain relationships such as RT, RT_X or RT_Y are specified and clarified. This rate of optimization with ca. 65% represents the usefulness of the criteria applicable to the cases of database construction and retrieval.

A Study on the Effect of Social Media on Information Sharing
Lee, Seungmin ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 49, issue 1, 2015, Pages 297~317
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2015.49.1.297
Although social media is recognized as a Web service that allows people to share and utilize their own opinion, experience and information, it is also faced with some problems such as indiscreet information creation and sharing, which resulted in the decline of reliability of information. This research statistically analyzed the effect of social media on information sharing. As a result, social media is an efficient information tool that can support information sharing and allow people to get feedback from other people. It also brought a positive effect on the entire information behavior. In contrast, it still has weaknesses in the utilization of information, including the decline of information reliability and excessive creation of inaccurate information. Eventually, social media is an information tool that can support the diversification of information and also incurs the decline of reliability of information.

DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2015.49.1.341
This paper proposes a noble service architecture based on scientific infographic as well as semi-automatic knowledge process for `KISTI`s Scent of Science` database, which has been highly credited as a science journalism service in Korea. Unlike other specialized scientific databases for domain experts and scientists, the database aims at providing comprehensible and intuitive information about various important scientific concepts which may seem not to be easily understandable to general public. In order to construct a knowledge-base from the database, we deeply analyze the traits of the database and then establish a semi-automatic approach to identify and extract various scientific intelligence from its contents. Furthermore, this paper defines a scientific infographic service platform based on the knowledge-base by offering its detailed structure, methods and characteristics, which shows a progressive future direction for science journalism service.

Name Authority Control is useful not only to manage author information but also to gather other names of authors in order to provide access points in libraries and other institutes. The purpose of this study is to find problems through comparing and analyzing Literature Translation Institute of Korea Author Database, Korean name authority records of national libraries in the U. S., Japan and Korea. The results of the study are as follows. First, Literature Translation Institute of Korea Author Database missed some useful information about Korean writers in translated books in other countries. Second, the name authority file of Library of Congress and National Diet Library did not include the variant names, dates of authors` birth and death date, and filled out incorrect variant names with some birth and death dates. Third, English and Chinese character variants of Korean authors were not found in the National Library of Korea. To solve these problems, revisions of Korean author database, open access to National Library of Korea name authority file, and a strong participation of VIAF were suggested.

The efficiency and quality of the social reference sites are being challenged because a large quantity of the questions have not been answered or satisfied for quite a long time. Main goal of this study is to investigate important factors that affect the performance of question triage to relevant answerers in the context of social reference. To achieve the goal, expert finding techniques were used to construct an automated question triage approach to resolve this problem. Furthermore, important factors affecting triage decisions in digital reference were first examined, and extended them to the social reference setting by investigating important factors affecting the performance of automated question triage in the social reference setting. The study was conducted using question-answer pairs collected from Ask Metafilter. For the evaluation, logistic regression analyses were conducted to examine which factors would significantly affect the performance of predicting relevant answerers to questions. The results of the current study have important implications for research and practice in automated question triage for social reference. Furthermore, the results will offer insights into designing user-participatory digital reference systems.
