In these days, we can draw many benefits from information and information technology but some side effects threatening information society have arisen.

So this study suggests new roles of public libraries to tackle information divide and internet addiction.
To promote information service and to encourage active participation from the group categorized as the alienated class(group of people), this study suggests the basic concepts and strategy for the information services to alienated class who does not have full public library services. The paper classifies three separate groups of alienated groups, handicapped, poor(economically unfortunate group) and elderly group. The service shall consider their needs from their own point of concern and interests. There are three distinctive considerations, infra structure(facility building, space, place), administrative consideration, and equipments. Infra-structure includes the planning of the space to facilitate the equipments and reference materials which will be controlled and moderated by a librarian. Administrative service includes the development for the educational system between the end users and external experts. It also includes the individualized education system for each group. Material and equipment consideration should include the each group's specific needs such as the infra-structures which is provided for the handicapped person.

The Internet is now an integral part of the everyday lives of a majority of people. Web users are becoming increasingly skeptical of the information and services offered online. They are demanding web sites that offer credible information. This study focused on what features of web sites affect the perception of web credibility. For this purpose, I took the responses from 648 people and extracted 49 factors that affect web credibility. I placed the individual factors - the specific questions asked in the survey - into one of four categories: expertise, trustworthiness, ads and other and calculated the means for each of the 49 factors. As a result, 29 out of 49 factors increase the perceptions of credibility and 20 factors decrease the web credibility. Sites with frequently update, the credentials of authors, strict content guides, search capabilities, clear connections to the real world fared good in credibility. Technical problems such as broken links, site sown, or typographical errors were rated the most negative on this scale. On the other end of the scale, a domain name that ends in '.org' or '.or.kr' caused little change in perception of credibility.
This study deals with the role and responsibility of university library in multicultural society. For this purpose, centered the Chinese students in Pusan University, with internet questionnaire surveys on customer satisfaction to the current library portal service and set up a effective digital library evaluation model. In the meanwhile we borrowed evaluation methods and items from LibQUAL+ in part, a world wide famous model, and use Tsinghua University Library‘s evaluation statistic norms. To summarize the results of this survey, Chinese student’s service satisfaction about Pusan University library is still fairly low. Undergraduate and graduate students(including doctor courses) group follows, undergraduates student’s satisfaction level is lower than graduate. By analyzing simple satisfaction we can know that library portal service maintained low importance or influence to the user, to internet space user’s satisfaction is a relatively high level. And compared with other dimension, statistic data show out that internet space user’s satisfaction still maintained a relative high level.
This study aims to raise academic library funds in Korea through how to raise funds and what conditions are. In order to do this, case studies on academic library funds of university in America as well as academic library funds of university in Korea have been analyzed.

A ubiquitous refers to the integration of the existing documentation, cyber space, and high-tech digital technology into a wireless terminal through ubiquitous computing and network technology. With the ubiquitous environment, a library and museum can extend its roles and functions all the more, and expectedly results in internal and external great changes. The purpose of this study was to examine the changed forms and contents of a ubiquitous-library/museum.

This study is to examine the research trends of the young people in Korea through an analysis of master's and doctor's dissertations. And to analyze the citations and documents in various aspects, such as; year, object, pattern, bibliotherapy program etc. The study is to present basic data for researcher and to indicate the direction of the study in the future.
This study describes a system which makes children use a cooperation study for the education of a library use and applies SDG technology to this cooperation study. SDG means a system which is able to do a cooperation work as a multi-inputting device in a computer display. Through the use library utilization education system based on SDG, learners study simultaneously and collaborately. On this thesis, We embodied the understanding of the decimal classification of Korea and the arrangement of a bookshelf and the study of the location tracking as a game style based on an existed study that a cooperation study used SDG is more superior that an individual study used a single device. Librarians through this system will be able to easily and interestingly instruct children for the use of a library.
This paper suggested a way to solve the problems by using domain experts who are already in the significant level of knowledge in those fields. For the purpose of achieving our goal, a very simple and efficient approach to construct the knowledge-base which can play an important role in providing researchers with essential information in need was proposed. In addition, the Adaptive R&D Information Service Portal with a new schema structure and a construction method of representing expert's knowledge efficiently was developed. With the simplicity and expandability of the proposed system it can be a good model for a similar system to be developed.
The purpose of this study is to investigate grade differences in the effect of reading methods - “oral reading”, “silent reading”, “intensive reading”, “extensive reading”, “thorough reading”, “selective reading” - influences on the self-directed learning ability. The data were collected by using 12 classes of 2nd, 4th, 6th-grade, 286 children of an elementary school. The influences according to reading methods on the self-directed learning ability were surveyed through the self-directed learning ability test and through questionnaire. Out of reading methods, “intensive reading” had significant influence on the self-directed learning ability. Out of reading methods of 4th and 6th-grade children, “intensive reading” had the most influence on the self-directed learning ability. However, out of reading methods of 2nd-grade children “thorough reading” had most influence on the self-directed learning ability.
The purpose of this study is to focus on developing the performance indicators for the distribution of scholarly information based on BSC and to analyze the importance of the performance indicators against the specialists. From the case studies on performance indicators both at home and abroad four viewpoints(information resource, information service, user, and economy) were derived. In addition, the core success factors(CSF) and key performance indicators(KPI) were extracted from the viewpoints. Four viewpoints are composed of 12 CSF items and 31 KPI items. In order to analyze the weight of the performance indicators, questions were thrown to the specialists in universities and research institutes. For the method of analysis, analytic hierarchy process(AHP) was adopted. As a result, the analysis showed that the user viewpoint, information service viewpoint, information resource viewpoint and economic viewpoint are in the order of their importance.
IFLA's FRBR model is a significant contribution to cataloging on both theoretical and practical grounds. This paper provides a brief overview of FRBR, a methodology for applying the FRBR work concept to a random sample of 1,000 bibliographic records taken from Korean National Bibliographic, and estimates of the number of works in Korean National Bibliographic and their associated characteristics, based on analysis of the sample. FRBR model can be applied to 16.9% of all works in Korean National Bibliographic. Results suggest that the majority of benefits associated with applying FRBR to Korean National Bibliographic could be obtained by concentrated on a relatively small number of complex works.
