In contrast to traditional taxonomy, folksonomy is generated not only by experts but also by creators and consumers of the content. Folksonomy is the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content. It is also known as collaborative tagging or social indexing. Folksonomy is also used to link to create social network that connect people to people who share same interest. Folksonomy users can generally discover the contents by which the tag sets of another user who tends to interpret contents in a way that makes sense to them. Firstly, this study consider the significance and some critical issues about folksonomy. Secondly, analyze special features of Korean academic site's folksonomy, which is managed by academic information site. Accordingly consider the directions of development about folksonomy system.
Under rapidly changing circumstances, public libraries are required to evaluate the performance with an integrated point of view to cope with a variety of changes. In other words, it is necessary to develop integrated library performance appraisal indicators which are both quantitative and qualitative. Recently, ISO and IFLA attempt to adopt an integrated performance evaluation system based on the Balanced Scorecard(BSC). Therefore, this study defines four aspects of the library appraisal including input, process, output and outcome, and suggests a new library appraisal system and indicators of each appraisal aspect. In the concrete, appraisal aspects were derived from ISO appraisal system, and an appraisal system and indicators were presented based on the comparison and analysis of the ones respectively used inside and outside of Korea. Finally, this study proposes the method of suitability evaluation of those performance indicators by librarians and professors in Korea.

This study aims at discussing development of web archiving policies in South Korea. The study is based on the understanding of that the institutional environment and efforts for keeping Web information resources are insufficient, compared to the value and importance of them. For the study, Web archiving practices are analyzed into three aspects; scope, method, and quality. Futhermore, they are graphically schematized as a comparative analysis model. Based on the model, the study classifies national Web archiving practices into seven unique types and diagnoses their cons and pros. In this context, a combined Web archiving policy is discussed as an optimal Web archiving approach. As a case study, the France National Library's Web archiving is discussed in depth and the Korean National Library's Web archiving project, OASIS, is critically analyzed. As a result, the study proposes two alternative plans for the development of Web archiving policy in South Korea.

The purpose of this study is to develop the indicators for measuring enjoyment of public libraries by the community. The term, enjoyment is defined as the community members' use and appreciation. Four types of enjoyment indicators are constructed through literature review: basic(environment), state(use), result(outcome), and essential(to enhance enjoyment). The prepared enjoyment indicators are evaluated and selected by focus groups interviews of professionals(researchers, librarians and policy makers). Those selected indicators are tested and revised through a internet survey of 508 Kyungi residents. Based on the analysis of the results this study suggests a total of 46 enjoyment indicators.
This paper reports a case study in which Saracevic and Kantor’s derived taxonomy of library services was applied to qualitative data gathered from sixteen university library users. Using face-to-face interview method, we collected user responses related to the reasons of using services, aspects of interaction, and results of using services. Specific codes from the taxonomy were applied to the verbal expressions. The results show that library services are being used for a variety of purposes and that this approach enables us to effectively capture and classify service value expressed in users’ own words. The taxonomy is evaluated to be quite comprehensive and scalable.
