Abstract

The goal of the present study is to identify the topic trend in the field of library and information science in Korea. To this end, we collected titles and abstracts of the papers published in four major journals such as Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, Journal of Korean Library and Information Science Society, and Journal of the Korean BIBLIA Society for library and Information Science during 1970 and 2012. After that, we applied the well-received topic modeling technique, Latent Dirichlet Allocation(LDA), to the collected data sets. The research findings of the study are as follows: 1) Comparison of the extracted topics by LDA with the subject headings of library and information science shows that there are several distinct sub-research domains strongly tied with the field. Those include library and society in the domain of “introduction to library and information science,” professionalism, library and information policy in the domain of “library system,” library evaluation in the domain of “library management,” collection development and management, information service in the domain of “library service,” services by library type, user training/information literacy, service evaluation, classification/cataloging/meta-data in the domain of “document organization,” bibliometrics/digital libraries/user study/internet/expert system/information retrieval/information system in the domain of “information science,” antique documents in the domain of “bibliography,” books/publications in the domain of “publication,” and archival study. The results indicate that among these sub-domains, information science and library services are two most focused domains. Second, we observe that there is the growing trend in the research topics such as service and evaluation by library type, internet, and meta-data, but the research topics such as book, classification, and cataloging reveal the declining trend. Third, analysis by journal show that in Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, information science related topics appear more frequently than library science related topics whereas library science related topics are more popular in the other three journals studied in this paper.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify differences between KCI and Naver Scholar as citation analysis tools. Four subcategories in the humanities category were selected as the subject of study. The recall of Naver Scholar was 64%(2,227 times) and the KCI's was 77%(2,665 times). There were some differences in the results at the individual article level or the subcategory level, but the gaps were not significant. Therefore, researchers who analyze citations are urged to use both databases because neither of them are complete, but supplementary to each other.

Abstract

It was difficult for user to identify e-books due to some problems such as duplicable bibliographic records and inconsistent descriptive cataloging when cataloging the bibliographic records of the e-book packages in OPAC. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to find the applicable methods of the provider neutral e-book(e-monograph) MARC record guideline for the standardization of the bibliographic records of the provider supplied e-book package. Through the literature reviews and homepage analysis of 15 university libraries in domestic, the theoretical background on cataloging e-book, the descriptive cataloging of e-book, the provider-neutral e-monograph MARC record guideline as new standard for e-book, and the libraries practices of cataloging bibliographic records of the e-book package were inquired. Based on these analysis, it was to suggest applicable methods of provider neutral e-book(e-monograph) MARC record guideline for the standardization of the bibliographic records of domestic e-book packages in aspect of cataloging rule, KORMARC, and neutral bibliographic records. This study will contribute to build FRBRization of the e-books in OPAC as finding the guideline for the standardization of the bibliographic records of the e-book packages for both providers and libraries.

Abstract

This study compared the everyday-life information behaviors of urban and rural adolescents to suggest ways that school library information services can better meet the information needs of each of these groups. It focused its comparison not only on the everyday-life information-seeking behaviors but also on kinds of information grounds and barriers forming information grounds. Two qualitative methods, written activity logs and semi-structured in-depth interviews, were used to examine everyday-life information behaviors of adolescents. It is expected that the proposed strategies will be used in planning actual school library information services for urban or rural youths.

Abstract

This study extracted quality control factors for invigorating Institutional Repository operations, and re-extracted key quality control factors with significant influence among them. Furthermore, this study developed an operating model reflecting an improvement scheme of these key quality control factors, and estimated how much effective the operating model was to the user. As a result of inspecting satisfaction for IR operating model and the general system, it has been found that librarians’ satisfaction for them is higher than that of the general user. Korea’s universities prefer a proxy submission mode by librarians to a self-archiving submission mode by writers. Therefore, based on the operation model developed by this study, it is suggested that Institutional Repository operation can be actively invigorated with librarians of these universities as central players.

Abstract

This study analyzed the process of multimedia services and indexed the core quality characteristics through the tools employed in ‘Define’ and ‘Measure’ steps of the 6 Sigma DMAIC methodology. To achieve the goal, as a case study of ‘S’ University Central Library, first, brainstorming technique was used to tap the librarians, second, interview with the half-time student workers, third, user’s opinion on homepage was analyzed and lastly, the interview with the users. This study also drew some potential causal factors which would likely to affect the multimedia service using Process Map and C&E Diagram. Those factors were prioritized using X-Y matrix and Pareto Chart. This study revealed 14 factors affecting multimedia services: ‘presence/absence of the persons who are in charge of selection’, ‘cycle of selection materials’, ‘presence/absence of seperated multimedia room’, ‘materials arrangement method’, ‘notification of popular materials’, ‘notification of documents arrivals’, ‘methods of noticing new arrivals’, ‘methods of ordering materials’, ‘cycle of checking order status’, ‘types of persons requesting materials’, ‘methods of requesting materials’, ‘checking of the status of the returned materials’, ‘methods of noticing materials in housed’, and ‘methods of ways to return overdue materials’.

Abstract

This study pointed the factors affecting the number of articles and citations in material science which is the most active publishing disciplinary in South Korea. This was conducted by gathering the information on SCIE which had been published by 449 Korean professors in material science from 2006 to 2010. One of the results was that the professors who had published more papers received more citations than those who did not, reconfirming former studies abroad. It was observed that the factors majors impacting on the number of papers may be their academic positions, educational backgrounds (particularly undergraduates), and places of work. The number of citations was affected by the authors’ undergraduate and their locations of the work. This study suggested a need for more supports on basic researches by universities and funding bodies and an amendment of performance measures to include the number of citations.

Abstract

This study aims to propose a lifecycle cost model for electronic records & archival management. For this purpose, the study identified cost elements based on analysing public records & archival management activities and proposed cost factors for management by applying data gathered from records centers & archives. The study employed various methods: desk research, activity analysis, a cost information survey and interviews with experts in digital preservation, and records/archival management. The study made the first step to the cost studies in electronic records management in Korea. It is expected to update the CoMMPER model and redefine activities of electronic records management. Further case studies based on the model is required.

Abstract

Since information scientists have begun trying to quantify significant research trends in scientific publications, ‘-metrics’ research such as ‘bibliometrics’, ‘scientometrics’, ‘informetrics’, ‘webometrics’, and ‘citation analysis’ have been identified as crucial areas of information science. To illustrate the dynamic research activities in these areas, this study investigated the major contributors of ‘-metrics’ research for the last decade at three levels: nations, institutions, and documents. ‘-metrics’ literature of this study was obtained from the Science Citation Index for the years 2001-2011. In this analysis, we used Pathfinder network, PNNC algorithm, PageRank and several indicators based on h-index. In terms of international collaborations, USA and England were identified as major countries. At the institutional level, Katholieke University, Leuven and the University of Amsterdam in Europe and Indiana University and the Office of Naval Research in the USA have led co-research projects in informetrics areas. At the document level, Hirsch’s h-index paper and Ingwersen’s web impact factor paper were identified as the most influential work by two methods: PageRank and single paper h-index.

Abstract

As topics of researchers become diverse horizontally or vertically, academic libraries have difficulties to identify the dynamic change of researchers' needs for academic publications. This research aims to illustrate the topic areas of researchers in a department of university by analyzing bibliographies of their publications. First, researchers' publications were used to discover the topic areas where the researchers had published. Second, the cited publications in those papers were analysed to identify the expanded topic areas of these researchers. Finally, highly cited journals were analyzed by network analysis method. The major finding is that the importance of topic areas by the number of journals was not necessarily proportional to that by the number of papers. Researchers have a tendency to use many papers in a small number of journals in a certain topic area. Furthermore, the importance of topic areas discovered by researchers' publications was not the same as that discovered by researchers' citations.

Abstract

Public information has been collected in various fields with huge costs in order to serve public purposes such as public agencies' policy-making. However, the collected public information has been overlooked as silos. In korea, many attempts have been made to open the public information to the public only to result in limited extent, where OpenAPI data is being presented by some agencies. Recently, at the national level, the LOD(Linking Open Data) project has built the national DB, initiating the ground on which the linked data will be based for their active availability. This study has outlined overall problems in earlier projects which have built up national linking systems based on linked data for public data use. A possible solution has been proposed with a real experience of having set up an existing national DB of Korean public agencies.

Abstract

This study identified topic shifts and patterns over time by analyzing an enormous amount of Twitter data whose characteristics are high accessibility and briefness. First, we extracted keywords for a certain product and used them for representing the topic network allows for intuitive understanding of keywords associated with topics by nodes and edges by co-word analysis. We conducted temporal analysis of term co-occurrence as well as topic modeling to examine the results of network analysis. In addition, the results of comparing topic shifts on Twitter with the corresponding retrieval results from newspapers confirm that Twitter makes immediate responses to news media and spreads the negative issues out quickly. Our findings may suggest that companies utilize the proposed technique to identify public’s negative opinions as quickly as possible and to apply for the timely decision making and effective responses to their customers.
