Abstract

This study aims to understand the research landscape of South Korea using the data of 2020 Google Scholar Metrics. To achieve the goal, we constructed and analyzed four types of networks including the university collaboration network, the keyword co-occurrence network, the journal citation network, and the discipline citation network. Through the analysis of the university collaboration network, we found major universities such as Seoul National University, Keimyung University, and Sungkyunkwan University that have led collaborative research. Job related keywords such as job change intention and job satisfaction have been frequently studied with other keywords. Through the analysis of the journal citation network, we found multiple journals such as The Journal of the Korea Contents Association, Korean Journal of Sociology, and Korean Journal of Culture and Social Issues that have been widely cited by the other journals and influenced them. Finally, Education, Business administration, and Social welfare were identified as the top influential disciplines that have influenced other disciplines through the knowledge diffusion. The study is the first of its kind to use the data of Google Scholar Metrics and conduct a stepwise network analysis (e.g., keyword, journal, and discipline) to broadly understand the research landscape of South Korea. Our results can be used by government agencies and universities to develop effective strategies of promoting university collaboration and interdisciplinary research.

Abstract

This study attempted to discover the problems related to the increasing book disposal trend within academic libraries by analyzing the disposal status over ten years and interviews with the librarians. The analysis utilized Korea Education and Research Information Service provided disposal information from 2010 to 2019. The academic libraries with more than 2 million books had disposed of the most number of books. This trend led to a distinctive decrease in the books’ duplicate copies in terms of the collection composition. The librarians from the organizations, which conducted disposal more than three times and one massive removal within ten years, revealed in the interviews that they discarded many valuable duplicate books. They discussed the importance of digitizing high-value resources and also the limitation imposed by the copyright law. In conclusion, this study pointed out that book disposal can cause changes in the collection composition in the long run and suggested that academic libraries pay attention to these changes. The study also suggested evaluating the discarded books’ values to guide the digitization efforts and count the number of books to include digital book use rights.

Abstract

Volunteers in public libraries are recognized only as internal manpower, so their sustainability and effectiveness are limited because the motivation for volunteering is hardly considered. This study aims to explore the motivation for volunteering in public libraries and the factors to continuation of the volunteering, and to analyze how these factors affect volunteer satisfaction and marketing intentions. To this end, the variables in this studies including satisfaction and motivation was defined operationally based on the related research and a pilot study with several in-depth interviews. A questionnaire survey was executed with the defined variables and the survey data were analyzed statistically. The results showed that the factors of emotional and psychological motivation influenced the satisfaction and marketing intention rather than the managerial factors such as remuneration. The results indicate the need for a change in volunteer management to a relationship-oriented management method. This study is meaningful in that it expands the value of volunteers in public libraries from as managerial to as marketing resources for public libraries.

Abstract

In most countries, public libraries play a role as a knowledge and information hub for local communities, a complex cultural space, and a third place for meetings and communication. Among the work of public libraries for this purpose, the key point is systematic collection development, and the established collection is essential for all knowledge and information services. In particular, local representative libraries must perform legal duties as a comprehensive knowledge information center for metropolitan governments, and develop, preserve, and service specialized collections that are difficult for other public libraries. Therefore, we analyzed the development cases of specialized collections of public libraries in large cities in foreign countries and local representative libraries in Korea, surveyed the degree of awareness of specialized collections for employees of public libraries and the cultural to geography in Gyeongbuk region. Based on the background information, this study proposed the development plan and establishment strategy of the Gyeongbuk Library specialized collection, which was named “Gyeongbuk Knowledge and Cultural Heritage.”

Abstract

Research in various academic fields using network analysis techniques has been conducted and grown. This study performed bibliographical analysis and content analysis on a total of 2,187 network analysis papers published in journals from 2003 to 2021. The results showed that the fields of Pedagogy, Interdisciplinary Research, Computer Science, Library and Information Science, Public Administration, and Business Administration were higher in terms of the number of research papers. From the perspective of journal, mega-journals were indicated as the most productive journals. However, when looking at the impact based on the number of citations, the strength of Public Administration, Library and Information Science, and Pedagogy is clearly revealed. The results of the analysis by authors can also confirm the higher impact of Journalism, Public Administration Science, and Library and Information Science. Of the 1,537 authors identified, very few authors are active in research, confirming the need to expand the researcher base. The results of content analysis showed that the weighted and non-directional network was the most common network type with using the research papers as a data set. Generally nodes are expressed as words and links are expressed as relationship. For network analysis, the use of KrKwic, UCINET, NetMiner, and NetDraw is the most prominent.

Abstract

The development of IT technology that has come to symbolize the fourth industrial revolution, the introduction of online government, and the change in environment has caused radical changes in record management. Most public institutions under the government make use of information systems that are objects of information protection such as electronic document system, document management system, and Onnara system. Further, protection and access control of record information through physical environment and electronic system in a user-centered record management environment is an essential component. Hence, this study studies how professional records management professionals in public institutions recognize safe protection and access management of record information, deriving areas that require improvement and providing a discussion and suggestions to bring about such improvement. This study starts by examining laws and policies on information protection in Korea, analyzing items on access control to compare them with laws and policies, as well as the current situation on records management and derive implications. This study is meaningful in that it aims to substantialize records management by suggesting areas of improvement necessary for the protection and management of record information in public institutions and providing professionals with tangible authority and control.

Abstract

The present study aims to identify the factors that affect the continuous use and discontinuance of the hospital information seeking applications(hospital apps thereafter) by employing the post acceptance model. The surveys were conducted with people who used the hospital apps from October 11 to 18, 2019. Researchers collected 125 valid data and analyzed them by using the structural equation model. The study found that the satisfaction and confirmation of expectation for the hospital apps users had significant effects on intention for continuous use and perceived usefulness, respectively. However, the perceived usefulness did not have a significant effect on the intention for continue use. The present study has identified the variables that influence the continuous use of these innovative technologies. The findings of the study confirmed the post acceptance model by observing the adoption and use of the hospital apps and extended the literature of the post acceptance model by discussing the unique characteristics of the hospital apps that satisfy the urgent help-seekers under emergency situations or the information needs emphasizing promptness. In addition, based on the benefits and limitations of hospital apps reported by consumers, the study provided practical implications for designing more user-friendly apps to hospital app developers or managers.
