    Abstract PDF
    Regional representative libraries are installing joint preservation archives to solve the problem of lack of preservation space in libraries. This study conducted a survey of public library librarians through a questionnaire survey and an FGI method in order to prepare specific operational policies and implementation plans for the Chungnam Library Joint Preservation Archive, which is a regional representative library. Based on this, an operation policy and implementation plan suitable for the common preservation and use of printed and digital data, which is the goal of the Common Preservation Archive, was proposed. As a result of the study, first, the joint preservation library of the Chungnam Library should first transfer books and serials along with ownership in consideration of the condition and demand of the preservation space of participating libraries. Second, it is necessary to establish an operation management system that can be used by all participating libraries in order to quickly and conveniently operate the joint preservation data center and connect it with a cloud-based integrated data management system.

    The Effects of Public Library Service Using Book-Trailer on User Behavioral Reaction

    Myoung-A Hong | Yong Jeong Yi | Tae-Seon Jeong | 2020, 54(4) | pp.83~105 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The study explored the extent of the effect of content book trailer services among the specialized services of the library using the latest technology. The AIDMA&AISAS model was employed to measure the seven reactions of user behavior: Attention, Interest, Search, Desire, Memory, Action, and Share. A total of 287 responses were analyzed by conducting surveys with users who had experienced book trailer services at 13 public libraries located in Incheon. The study found that there were significant differences in user behavioral reactions in all of the content genre, including message, conflict, and character, and in particular, the character genre had the highest effects, followed by conflict and message genres. However, the post-hoc test indicated that there was no significant difference between the genres of conflict and character in terms of interest, search, and user satisfaction. The present study suggests theoretical implications by assessing and confirming the effects of book trailer services of the content genre on the reactions of user behavior compared with previous studies that measured the effects of the book trailer services of the form genre, and further practical implications for effective book trailer services.

    A Time-series Analysis of the Influence Factors on Public Library Patron Numbers

    Kyeong-Jin Lee | Myung Gyu,SONG | 2020, 54(4) | pp.195~220 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study aims at identifying the influence factors on public library patron numbers through a time-series analysis using the Korean National Libraries Statistical Data from 2014 to 2019. The facts found can be summarized as follows; First, the variables of books collection and periodicals appeared constantly to be unsignificant in the influence on public library patron numbers through the period from 2014 to 2019. This suggests that the internet may be substituting public libraries in the service of access to ordinary books and periodicals, which has been considered as a main function of public libraries. Second, such factors as cultural or books programs, library operation, user activities, and facilities turned out to be more significant and continual in the influence on public library patron numbers than the factor of books collection and storage. This means that public libraries have a complementary relation with the internet in these fields.

    Hyoeun Park | seungmin lee | 2020, 54(4) | pp.261~281 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The importance of long-term preservation of various types of electronic records through dark archives is gradually increasing. However, the current dark archive does not have an optimized information package structure for long-term preservation of electronic records. In order to address these problems, this research proposed four element categories by re-organizing the OAIS reference model information package based on the core process of the dark archiving. The detailed descriptive items of each category consist of a total of 4 upper-level elements and 27 sub elements based on the OAIS reference model, ISO 23081, Records Management Metadata Standard, ISAD(G), ISAAR(CPF), ISDF, and ISDIAH. This structure can be used as a basis for constructing an information package optimized for dark archiving, and is expected to support the long-term preservation of electronic records more efficiently.

    Eun Jin Kim | Joung Hwa Koo | 2020, 54(4) | pp.283~315 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of the research is to evaluate the current online PR activities focused on the websites of university archives. To achieve the goal, the research developed the indicators to assess online PR activities by synthesizing both the factors derived from the basic components and concepts of PRs at university archives and the existing indexes for evaluating the online PRs of related cultural organizations such as libraries, museums, archives, and non-profit organizations. The research found that most university archives did not have promotional activities positively because there was lack of archival information services development. Even if there were some archival information services, they were not actively publicizing the facts. On the basis of the results, the research suggested the alternatives to improve online PR activities and follow-up research topics to supplement limitations of the research.
