    A Qualitative Study of Physicians’ Use of Clinical Information Resources and Barriers

    Soon Kim | Eunkyung Chung | 2016, 50(4) | pp.55~75 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    We analyzed the characteristics of the physicians preferred information sources and barriers through in-depth interviews. Information searches for patient treatment were subdivided into deciding patient treatment methods, understanding the latest treatment trends, and preparing presentation materials for conferences. The variables that affected the search behaviors were identified as being background knowledge on the topic, clinical experience, job title, search skills, user training, and familiarity with the library homepage. PubMed was the most preferred choice because of users’ familiarity, reliability, and the vastness of information; Google was also used frequently for easy access and fast search result. The accuracy and the recentness of information were the most significant criteria. Easy interface and convenient access were also considered important due to physicians’ time constraints. Searching obstacles were divided into difficulty of searching system, unfamiliar term, too vast resources, difficulty to get fulltext articles and complex advanced search features. The results of this study can be utilized as a basis for improving information service of library and curriculum development for physicians.

    Jongwook Lee | 2016, 50(4) | pp.231~252 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Mentoring by faculty advisors is closely related to the personal and professional outcomes of doctoral students. However, few researchers have examined the characteristics of faculty mentors. To deal with this lack of research, the author attempted to explore the characteristics of faculty mentors from the perspective of Library and Information Science (LIS) doctoral students in the United States. In the study, the author combined interviews and a survey to examine the characteristics of faculty mentors. The interview and survey findings present a list of characteristics that are comprehensive and specific to LIS doctoral education. Specifically, the author describes a faculty mentor as a well-rounded person who possesses both professional and interpersonal characteristics. In addition, the findings show some aspects in which the current advising/mentoring could improve. The current study offers a guideline for the accomplishment of doctoral mentoring at a concrete level, rather than vaguely recommending that faculty advisors support the professional and psychosocial development of their students. In a following paper, the author will relate background characteristics of doctoral students to their perception of mentors.

    Article 50 and article 18 related to orphan works in the Copyright Act of Korea and Enforcement Decree of the Copyright Act of Korea define ‘considerable efforts’ to locate copyright owners. This study analyzed the reasonableness of the efforts for mass digitization in libraries. The findings of the study were the duplication of searches on the ‘Finding Copyright’ website and the inquire to copyright trust management organizations by document, ambiguity of search criteria through information networks, and problems due to non-use of international standard identifiers in managing works on copyright register, works with undistributed compensation, and copyright trust management organizations. This study suggests that copyright trust management organizations should register trust works, the government should develop a guideline for detail guidance for searching information networks, and copyright works should be managed using international standard identifiers.
