초록

이 연구에서는 우리나라의 인문학자들이 최근 학술정보환경의 급격한 변화에 직면하여 연구를 수행하는 과정에서 현재 어떤 정보자원을 이용하고 중요하다고 여기며, 앞으로 오년 동안 이용 빈도의 변화를 어떻게 전망하는지 살펴보았다. 이 연구의 목적은 인문학자들의 정보자원 이용행태의 현상과 변화에 관한 전망을 포괄적으로 분석하고, 이를 근거로 대학도서관들이 어떤 서비스를 제공할 수 있는 방안을 제안하는 것이다. 이 연구를 위해 스물다섯 개 대학 소속 인문학 분야 교수 중 799명을 표본으로 확정한 후, 2007년 11월부터 2008년 1월 사이 우편 서베이를 실시하여, 모두 132개의 분석 가능한 설문을 수집하였다. 서베이 응답자들은 대체로 연구와 교육에 균등한 시간을 배분하며, 대부분 단독연구를 수행하는 독자적 연구행태를 보였다. 책과 인쇄학술지(심사)로 대표되는 전통적 자원의 현재 이용 빈도 및 중요성의 인식도가 절대적으로 높았으나, 전자원문, 전자학술지 등 텍스트 형태의 전자자원에 대한 의존도 또한 높았고, 향후 오년 동안 그 이용 빈도는 상당히 증가할 것으로 전망하였다. 인문학자들 가운데 신진연구자, 중견연구자 및 최고경력자 집단 사이에 정보자원의 이용 행태 면에서 다소 차이점이 있는 것으로 보였다. 대학도서관은 인문학자들을 위해 (1) 보다 적극적인 “아웃리치(Outreach)” 수행, (2) 인쇄 및 전자자원 장서의 균형적 구성 및 우선순위 결정, (3) 전통적 정보자원을 위한 정보리터러시 교육의 적절한 수행, (4) 전자자원 이용 행태의 현황 및 변화 추이의 지속적 모니터링 및 교육 시행, 그리고 (5) 적절한 물리적 공간으로서 역할 확인이 필요함을 강조하였다.

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the use of information resources of the humanities scholars in Korea and suggest the strategic planning of academic library and information services to serve their needs. To collect data, a mail survey was conducted during the period of November 2007 through January 2008. Out of 799 humanities scholars sampled from 25 universities, 132 responded with the completion rate of 16%. Major findings in this study are as follows: First, the majority of the humanities scholars distribute their time equally to research and education, and conduct independent research. Second, they still largely depend on print resources, including scholarly journals, books, and manuscripts for getting information, while using some online information resource mostly in text such as electronic documents and journals. They expect that the frequency of using such print resources would not decline much, but the use of online resources could definitely increase in the next five years. Some variances in the behavior were observed among the groups of scholars according to their research experiences. It is suggested that academic libraries (1) conduct more active outreach, (2) prioritize between traditional and electronic resources, (3) plan information literacy education for traditional resources.
