    Abstract PDF
    As we enter the 21st century, Korean libraries have embarked on a journey of change. The reason that libraries in Korea have sought to achieve dynamic changes is that various citizens’ organizations have analyzed the issue from their point of view, deduced the problem, conveyed this to the general public and thus revitalized the structure of mutual understanding in reaching a solution. The two most notable civilian organizations active in the Korean library area are ‘the National Union for Revival of School Libraries’ and ‘the Citizen Action for Reading Culture’.

One is to utilize the existing cooperative network of Korea Education & Research Information Service(KERIS) as a national hub for information exchange, and the other is to activate various regional or subject-based committees to encourage subject-oriented specialization of university libraries.

    Personal Name Authority Control in Korean Public Libraries

    심 경 | 2006, 40(4) | pp.221~244 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    This research analyzes the current status of personal name authority control and its impact on the end user searching against OPACs in public libraries in Korea. Further, it also suggests the ways to improve the recall ratio in author search with a minimal modification, system-wise and authority-wise, on the KOLISNET as a stepping stone for other public libraries. Finally, a long-term plan for establishing proper authority work in public libraries including the National Library of Korea is briefly proposed. In order to find out whether authority works are conducted and examine how variant written forms of the same foreign name and variant names of the same person are treated, OPACS of the National Library of Korea, KOLISNET, and ten randomly selected public libraries were searched. Findings indicate that while the National Library of Korea was performing authority control, even incomplete, the rest did not appear to conduct any form of authority control. As a spinoff of the research, it is observed that in many public libraries their bibliographic records and retrieval methods are inaccurate, lacking consistency, and incomplete. In sum, it is strongly recommended that (1) as a start for authority work among public libraries personal name authority control should be conducted to enhance the identifying and collocating functions in OPACs, (2) a shared authority database, for which the National Library of Korea's authority database might be used, should be built for public libraries.

    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is principle and theory of main class in a Library Classification. According to Sayers, “The foundation of the library is the book; the foundation of librarianship is classification.” We looked at the between scientific and bibliographic classification, and at the fact that bibliographic scheme is usually an aspect classification. That is to say, the organization of topics is based on areas or activity, and the first division of the scheme is into disciplines or subject domains. This first division of classification creates what are called main class. The sequence of main classes is also important. A rough definition of a amin class is that it corresponds to a single notational character. Main classes usually equivalent to traditional disciplines. What constitutes a main class will vary from one classification to another. The order in which the main classes are listed is often discussed at the theoretical level, and some orders are considered to be better than others.
