    A Study on the User-contributed Reviews for the Next Generation Library Catalogs

    Yoon, Cheong Ok | 2012, 46(2) | pp.115~132 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to examine the current status of user-contributed reviews for the Next Generation Library Catalogs, and the potential impact of user reviews available from the external sources, including Amazon.com and GoodReads.com. During the period of February 16th through April 4th, 2012, the number of holding libraries and user-contributed reviews, tags and reading lists of ten selected books were examined from the WorldCat. Also the user-contributed reviews for the same books available from Amazon.com and GoodReads.com were examined, and a case of reviews for one book was analyzed. The result shows that only a few users participated in the WorldCat, and user-contributed reviews were rarely used, when compared with tags or reading lists. Several hundred to thousand user-contributed reviews for the same books were available from Amazon.com and GoodReads.com directly linked with bibliographic records. A case of one book from Amazon.com reveals the possibility of distorting the function of user-contribution. With the introduction of the function of user-contribution, it is expected that its growth rate should be carefully observed and its potential impact on users should be thoroughly and systematically analyzed in the near future.

    Localization of Metadata Elements in the Art Museum Community

    Young Joon Nam | seungmin lee | 2012, 46(2) | pp.175~197 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The art museums in South Korea are mostly small-scaled institutions with small amount of art works. Thus, internationally accepted metadata standards such as CDWA and VRA Core may not be efficient to manage their collections. Because of these distinct local characteristics, there is a need to create a set of metadata elements that can be used for the art museum community in the country. This research aims to propose a set of metadata elements customized to fit into the context of small-scaled art museums in South Korea. The construction of the element set was not from scratch but on the basis of existing standards such as CDWA, VRA Core, and Dublin Core. By identifying core elements that are indispensable in describing art works and collecting opinions of experts in art museums, the proposed set of metadata elements is expected to support the operation and management of art works and satisfy the localized needs of the art museum community.

    Abstract PDF
    This study analyzes the correlation between the library anxiety and personality traits. The library anxiety (LAS) and personality traits (the Korean BFI) were measured against 49 freshmen in the university. The library anxiety was average 2.57, ‘mechanical barriers’ score was the highest(2.91), subsequently was ‘affective barriers’ 2.72, ‘barriers with staff’ 2.49, ‘knowledge of library’ 2.42, and ‘comfort with the library’ score was the lowest(2.38). The personality traits had the tendency that ‘agreeableness’f actor(3.65) is higher than other 4 factors, ‘neuroticism’(3.48), ‘extraversion’(3.27), ‘openness’(2.85), and ‘conscientiousness’ (3.26). It found that ‘comfort with the library’ and ‘neuroticism’ were correlated statistically and the personality traits have an effect on library anxiety. Based on the findings, the following recommendations are made: improving the measurement tool of information anxiety, using other personality traits variables in similar researches, and developing personalized library anxiety resolution programs.

    Kang Mi-hee | Hyun-Jin Hong | 2012, 46(2) | pp.219~243 | number of Cited : 6
    Abstract PDF
    The purposes of this study are to develop spatial factors for children's libraries and fulfill the evaluation of importance of expert and user groups for it. So, this study developed spatial evaluation factors by analyzing materials of domestic/international groups and associations and precedent studies, drawing spatial factors and organizing them. Next, for the spatial factors developed to 12 evaluation areas and 127 detailed indexes, an importance was evaluated for 4 expert groups; children's librarians, people majoring in early childhood education, elementary school's librarians, people in charge of architecture, etc. and 3 groups; infants, elementary school's lower grades, elementary school's high grades, etc. The evaluation results are as follows. First, the expert groups approved an importance of indexes by evaluating all of the 12 evaluation areas and 120 indexes of 127 detailed indexes as more than 3.0. Second, the user groups also approved an importance of indexes by evaluating all of 12 evaluation areas and 125 detailed indexes of 127 detailed indexes as more than 3.0. Third, as the result of evaluating an importance between expert groups and user groups, there was a difference between two groups in 2 areas among the 12 evaluation areas.

    A Study on the Correlation between the Index Values and Qualitative․Quantitative Evaluation Elements and the Distinction Ability of the Journals' Registration Condition of the KCI-based Composite Index in Evaluating Korean Journals

    Young Man Ko | 박지영 | 2012, 46(2) | pp.245~260 | number of Cited : 7
    Abstract PDF
    This study aims to analyze the change in the correlation between the index values and qualitative․quantitative evaluation elements by applying 'the decile of total number of articles' instead of the average annual number of articles in Kor-Factor2, and to evaluate the distinction ability between registered journals and register nominee journals of the KCI. The correlation between the index values and qualitative․quantitative evaluation elements was analyzed by calculating the correlation coefficient between the index values and the evaluation elements, and then the correlation was compared with that of Kor-Factor2. To evaluate the distinction ability, we carried out independent samples t-test on the mean difference between index values of register nominee journal group and registered journal group and compared the mean difference with that of Kor-Factor2, IF and journal h-index. As a result, we found that the modified index applying the decile of total number of articles was effective in improving the balance among the correlation between the index values and qualitative․quantitative evaluation elements compared to Kor-Factor2, and the new index appeared to be superior to other indexes on distinction ability of the journal's registration condition in the KCI.

    The Study on the Directions of KCR4 under the New ICP 2009

    Lee, Mihwa | 2012, 46(2) | pp.261~280 | number of Cited : 9
    Abstract PDF
    This study seeks to replace Paris Principles and find directions of revising KCR4 by analyzing the International Cataloging Principles 2009(ICP 2009) established in the environment of Machine Readable Cataloging. ICP 2009 was reflected in cataloging rules such as RDA and ISBD 2010 as the minimal principles for uniformity in establishing each nation’s cataloging rules. In contrary, KCR4 needs to be revised because it has never been changed after 2003, and has only description rules without any rules for the choice and forms of access points. Therefore, this study aims to grasp requirements that should be reflected in KCR4 through analyzing ICP 2009. In first step, it is to grasp the features of ICP 2009 by comparing Paris Principle and ICP 2009 and to compare KCR4 in aspects of ICP 2009. The detailed elements for comparison between ICP 2009 and KCR4 are scope, general principles, entitles, attributes, and relationships, objectives and functions of the catalogue, bibliographic description, access points, foundations for search capabilities as the contents of ICP 2009. As a result, this study could give some directions of KCR4 in the future. First, ISBD 2010 and conceptual models should be reflected in KCR4 in description. Second, it should regulate the authority access points in KCR4 based on ICP 2009. Third, it will describe essential access points of work and expression attributes in bibliographic records and authority records to find works and expression. This study will contribute to guide the national cataloging rules.
