    Sung-Jong Cha , Kim, Jinmook , Park Hee Jin | 2021, 55(1) | pp.107~133 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This study was performed in order to provide suggestions on how to strengthen librarian competency by evaluating and analyzing the competency value of librarians as information professions. First, the study divided the common competency value of librarians as human capital of libraries into skills, knowledge, behavior and attitude, and analyzed each area of competency value for librarians of the A-library. As a result, the average of the ‘librarian’s behavior and attitude’ area was the highest, followed by the ‘librarian’s skill’ area and the ‘librarian’s knowledge’ area. Second, in terms of ‘librarian’s skill’, A-library librarians’ competence values were high in the order of ‘communication’, ‘leadership’, ‘technology’ and in the terms of ‘librarian’s knowledge’ ones were high in the order of ‘law and policy’, ‘marketing’, ‘learning and growth’ and ‘finance and accounting’. In addition, in areas of ‘librarian’s behavior and attitude’, the factors were high in the order of ‘ethics and values’, ‘interpersonal relationships’ and ‘customer service’. Third, the analysis of whether the average difference exists depending on the characteristics of A-library librarians on their evaluation of the competency value shows that only the ‘working period’ factor in the total competency value and the two factors ‘age’ and ‘working period’ were statistically significant in the ‘librarian’s knowledge’ area. Forth, as a result of a regression analysis to identify the characteristics of A-library librarians and their impact on competency value, only the ‘final education’ factor was statistically significant for the competency value of the ‘librarian’s skill’ area. Fifth, in the survey on problems and desirable improvement measures in increasing the competency value of librarians, the proportion of presenting problems and improvement plan in systemic aspects such as the ‘librarian qualification system’ and ‘librarian training system’ was high.

    Ethical Dilemmas in Teacher-librarians’ Professional Practice

    Chung Jin Soo | 2021, 55(1) | pp.161~180 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study investigates ethical dilemmas of teacher-librarians in their professional practice. Within the framework of “Librarians’ Statement of Ethics” by Korean Library Association, the study used the survey and semi-structured interview with teacher-librarians. 259 teacher-librarians responded the survey and 5 teacher-librarians participated the interview. The survey was analyzed using descriptive statistics to find how often teacher-librarians experience ethical dilemmas. The semi-structured interview was transcribed and analyzed to draw the individual cases of teacher-librarians’ ethical dilemmas. The results indicate that teacher-librarians experience ethical dilemmas in relation to information access and intellectual freedom most often. It was difficult for teacher-librarians to relate their professional duties with their expertise and that they were not clear on how to avoid copyright issues and how to deal with the balance between users and copyright holders. This study had implications that individual dilemma cases are so context-dependent that teacher-librarians had to make decisions individually. They tried hard to find the balance between protecting students from harmful resources and library ethics. Researchers and practitioners need focus more on finding where the balance is and how teacher-librarians deal with their ethical dilemmas.

    Abstract PDF
    Efforts to establish a joint preservation facility for library collection are being discussed by some of regional representative libraries recently. In order for the efficient management and preservation of public library materials and to secure the space necessary for applying new services, there is a high demand for a cooperative shared storage for public libraries. The construction of a cooperative shared storage for public libraries is to minimize the cost of expanding the preservation space for each public library and to provide a pleasant service environment by separating the low-use materials stored in the library. Accordingly, discussions on the construction of a cooperative shared storage for public libraries are being initiated by some representative libraries. This study, in this regard, tried to propose a plan to build a cooperative shared storage for public libraries by a Seoul Metropolitan Library. To this end, it surveyed the estimate size of the collections of public libraries in Seoul and, based on this, proposed the size and strategies for the facility.

    Soosang Lee | 2021, 55(1) | pp.343~364 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    In this study, as examples of domestic libraries currently using the cloud-based library system, the main characteristics and issues that appeared in the experience of use divided into the processes of introduction, conversion, and operation of each system were investigated, and the results are as follows. First, it is said that new systems were introduced as alternatives to problems caused by the operation of the existing system, and the current products were selected because they were cost-effective. Second, the main issues in the conversion process were data migration work, implementation of existing service functions, and linking problems of internal and external systems in the library. Third, the main advantages identified in the operation process were cost reduction, simple installation and automatic management and maintenance, and convenient use in mobile devices. The main drawbacks were the difficulty of customizing that reflects the characteristics of the library, and the need for stability of the network. The disappeared role of the information technology librarian is the regular system inspection and maintenance support, and various new roles have been suggested. The responses of librarians and users to the new system were generally satisfied rather than dissatisfied.

    Comparison of Research Performance Between Domestic and International Library and Information Science Scholars

    YANG, KI DUK , Kim SeonWook , LeeHyeKyung | 2021, 55(1) | pp.365~392 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    In order to assess the state of library and information science (LIS) research in Korea, the study analyzed bibliometric data of papers published in past 18 years in Korea Citation Index (KCI) and Social Science Citation Index (SSCI) journals. The analysis of study data, which consisted of 6,301 KCI journal papers with 26,474 citations and 86,727 SSCI journal papers with 1,196,961 citations from 2002 to 2020, involved comparison of research productivity and impact, collaboration trends, and key areas of research between domestic and international LIS scholars with normalizations by units of analysis for size differences. Even with size normalization, the study found a marked difference in citation patterns between domestic and international LIS research. Korean LIS authors were twice as productive as international LIS authors but a little over a half as impactful. The results also showed a much higher level of skewness in international research, where a fraction of top authors, institutions, and journals received a lion’s share of citations. The trend of increasing co-authorship was much more pronounced among international publication, where the recent popularity of larger collaboration groups suggests multi-disciplinary and increasingly complex nature of modern LIS research in the world stage. The keyword analysis revealed a much more diverse subject area in international than domestic LIS research with a recent shift towards technology, such as big data, blockchain, and altmetrics. Keywords in SSCI journals also exhibited a less connection between popularity and impact than KCI keywords, where popular keywords did not necessarily correspond to impactful keywords.

    Eunkyung Chung | 2021, 55(1) | pp.393~413 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    Digital humanities, which creates new and innovative knowledge through the combination of digital information technology and humanities research problems, can be seen as a representative multidisciplinary field of study. To investigate the intellectual structure of the digital humanities field, a network analysis of authors and keywords co-word was performed on a total of 441 papers in the last two years (2019, 2020) at the Digital Humanities Conference. As the results of the author and keyword analysis show, we can find out the active activities of Europe, North America, and Japanese and Chinese authors in East Asia. Through the co-author network, 11 dis-connected sub-networks are identified, which can be seen as a result of closed co-authoring activities. Through keyword analysis, 16 sub-subject areas are identified, which are machine learning, pedagogy, metadata, topic modeling, stylometry, cultural heritage, network, digital archive, natural language processing, digital library, twitter, drama, big data, neural network, virtual reality, and ethics. This results imply that a diver variety of digital information technologies are playing a major role in the digital humanities. In addition, keywords with high frequency can be classified into humanities-based keywords, digital information technology-based keywords, and convergence keywords. The dynamics of the growth and development of digital humanities can represented in these combinations of keywords.

    Park, Oknam | 2021, 55(1) | pp.439~467 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    While the body of cases on startup has grown substantially, there has been a lack of a one-stop gateway of entrepreneurship. The study attempts to build a subject gateway for startup information services based on case studies, users' needs analysis, and literature reviews. The results show that users have difficulty in selecting useful information since the excess of information and the search for the desired information as it is scattered across a wide range of sources. The study designed a subject gateway by a navigation system that enables flexible browsing within the entire gateway through the ontology modeling. The study also presented an example of startup records to display how startup information can be explored. This study is expected to contribute to the understanding of the current status related to business startup services. The business startup digital gateways based on empirical data analysis will contribute to extending library service for startup.

    A Study on User’s Wayfinding Information-Seeking Behavior When Using the Mobile Map Application on Foot

    Hyeon Jeong Gwon , Jeeyeon Lee | 2021, 55(1) | pp.469~492 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This study aims to find an optimal method for the mobile map application to provide directions by analyzing users’ behavior in wayfinding and the information referenced in the direction-finding tasks. The mobile application provided information such as ‘the name of the store on the first floor,’ ‘current location and directions to proceed if there are multi-branching roads,’ and ‘alleyways.’ In the visual representation of information, the application should pay attention to ‘landmark elements such as subway station exits and bus stops,’ ‘the color of crosswalks and overpasses,’ ‘division between sidewalks and driveways,’ and ‘entry to the subway stations.’ For the mobile map application to provide intuitive interaction, it is necessary to specify ‘the direction toward the destination,’ ‘the possible rotation of the map screen,’ and ‘the big roads’ preference guidance.’

    A Study on the Establishment of the Comprehensive Academic Contents Linking System: Focusing on KISTI

    Juseop Kim , Jeon Ye-rin , Kim Sun Tae | 2021, 55(1) | pp.493~519 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to propose a plan to implement the comprehensive linking system centered on identifiers in order to provide seamless academic information services to researchers. To achieve this goal, interviews were conducted with 17 researchers from five centers and one secretariat belonging to KISTI. The contents of the interview are about the establishment and management status of the identifier of the academic information service DB. As a result of the interview, it was found that the identification rate for identifiers such as KOI was high in the case of domestic articles DB, but the identification rate for global identifiers such as ORCID was low in the case of foreign articles DB except for DOI. To solve this problem, this study proposes the council for joint use of a comprehensive linking system to build the comprehensive linking system model centered on identifiers. The joint use council will be organized around domestic academic information distribution institutions, and the council is expected to discover and implement new services through ID linkage by collecting foreign identifiers.

    The Roles of Public Libraries for the Formation of Digital Capital

    seungmin lee | 2021, 55(1) | pp.521~540 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    This research categorizes the factors of digital capital accumulated both in personal and social level into digital access and digital competence, and empirically analyzes how the use of public libraries effects on the formation of digital capital. As a result, it was found that participation in public library programs, the use of information services, and the utilization of digital collections had positive effect on the formation and accumulation of digital capital at the personal and social level. In contrast, it was analyzed that the use of digital collections in public libraries did not significantly affect the creation of digital contents or reciprocal collaboration based on online networks. Therefore, in order for public libraries to fully support the formation of digital capital, they should not only provide knowledge and information which is a traditional role of public libraries, but also play a role as a digital-based cooperative system.
