    A Study on Stability of Internet Information Resources for Academic Communications in LIS Domain of Korea

    Kim, Sungwon | 2019, 53(3) | pp.45~62 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Rapid development and dissemination of ICT have brought about vast change in people’s lives, including academic research and communication. Considering that the purpose of constructing Internet was to facilitate information exchange among research institutions and to secure stability through distributed preservation of critical information of the countries, increase in utilizing Internet resources for academic research seems to be natural consequences. This study examines the stability of Internet information resources by analyzing the following four factors. First, monitoring whether there is a change in accessibility to information resource as time passes. Second, examining various factors affecting the accessibility. Third, checking if there is a change in the content of information, if still accessible. Lastly verifying if any alternative access path is provided in case of original resource is no longer accessible.

    Abstract PDF
    Libraries are recently emerging as the core institutions designed to resolve the information equality that is forecasted to further deepen with the arrival of the fourth industry revolution era. This study thus analyzed the trends of studies on the library services offered to people suffering information inequality in Korea, and proposed measures for the activation of the research and future studies so as to strengthen the domestic library services targeting the people suffering information equality and to promote the research. As a result, proposed as measures for the activation of research were ① Policy support and project expansion at the national level, ② Various approaches and research environment creation at the academic level, ③ Strengthening of services for the various levels of people suffering information inequality and deployment of professional librarians at the level of libraries, and ④ Encouraging librarians to enroll with graduate schools and to conduct research. Further, proposed were the future studies that can be approached according to the various levels of people suffering information inequality, such as disabled people, multicultural family members, elderly people, children, youth, agricultural and fishing areas, low-income people, and refugees(North Korea defectors).

    Collaborative Research and Publishing of Librarians and Research Teams from Other Academic Fields

    Eun-Ja Shin | 2019, 53(3) | pp.143~159 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    In the many countries including United States, numerous librarians participate as research project members and publish papers in related/non-LIS journals. In recent years, the quantity of papers published by librarians in LIS journals and the non-LIS journals is similar. This study analyzed whether librarians join the research team in various academic fields in South Korea, carry out the research together, and publish the papers in co-authorship. This study collected and analyzed 319 articles of the authors affiliated with libraries published in the last 10 years from the Korea Citation Index. As a result, there were not many articles published by the authors in the non-LIS journal. Nonetheless, specific examples of librarians collaborating closely with other disciplinary research teams were observed; Medicine, Architecture, Materials Engineering, etc. Librarians’ contribution in research projects in South Korea is expected to increase in the future. Therefore, it is desirable to prepare for this such as opening courses on research projects in the library and the department of LIS which is training librarians as well.

    Abstract PDF
    This study explores the development strategies, impact, and limitations of public library makerspaces through active case studies. By examining related literature reviews, this study analyzes principles, objectives, programs, services, and strategies of public library makerspaces. Survey results from library staff and makerspace program participants show that both groups perceived the value and the effects of makerspaces positively; however, they suggested the need for greater program variety and accessibility. Additionally, this study evaluates makerspace programs through in-depth interviews with makerspace staff. Interview results raise diverse issues, including the need to further explore the justifications for and values of public library makerspaces, stable funding strategies, and phase-by-phase operating guidelines.

    Network Analysis between Uncertainty Words based on Word2Vec and WordNet

    Heo Go Eun | 2019, 53(3) | pp.247~271 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Uncertainty in scientific knowledge means an uncertain state where propositions are neither true or false at present. The existing studies have analyzed the propositions written in the academic literature, and have conducted the performance evaluation based on the rule based and machine learning based approaches by using the corpus. Although they recognized that the importance of word construction, there are insufficient attempts to expand the word by analyzing the meaning of uncertainty words. On the other hand, studies for analyzing the structure of networks by using bibliometrics and text mining techniques are widely used as methods for understanding intellectual structure and relationship in various disciplines. Therefore, in this study, semantic relations were analyzed by applying Word2Vec to existing uncertainty words. In addition, WordNet, which is an English vocabulary database and thesaurus, was applied to perform a network analysis based on hypernyms, hyponyms, and synonyms relations linked to uncertainty words. The semantic and lexical relationships of uncertainty words were structurally identified. As a result, we identified the possibility of automatically expanding uncertainty words.

    The Functional Requirements of Core Elements for Research Data Management and Service

    KIm Ju-Seop | Kim Sun Tae | Choi Sang Ki | 2019, 53(3) | pp.317~344 | number of Cited : 9
    Abstract PDF
    Increasing the value of data, paradigm shifts in research methods, and specific manifestations of open science indicate that research is no longer text-centric, but data-driven. In this study, we analyzed the services for DCC, ICPSR, ANDS and DataONE to derive key elements and functional requirements for research data management and services that are still insufficient in domestic research. Key factors derived include DMP writing support, data description, data storage, data sharing and access, data citations, and data management training. In addition, by presenting functional requirements to the derived key elements, this study can be applied to construct and operate RDM service in the future.
