ABSTRACT

The development of IT (information technology) has brought about many types of new services, and the traditional sectors such as libraries and information management fields have actively applied new technology to improve the quality of their services. Many of these newly developed services are described under the term ‘Web 2.0’, in the sense they are next-generation forms of services, and this coinage is duplicated in the term ‘Library 2.0’, specifically referring to the library services equipped with Web 2.0 technology. Active acceptance of advanced IT to library services is very important to enhance the value and role of library in this rapidly changing information environment. So far, libraries in Korea and abroad have already been putting a lot of efforts and resources to develop and provide technically advanced services. Despite these efforts, it is found that some of these new services have failed to attract users’ attention and interest, resulting in the low rates of usage. This study, therefore, reviews current state of the “Folksonomy” based services provided in Korean college libraries as a type of Library 2.0 services, and assess their usage rates. The result of this evaluation is then used to develop a guideline to improve and mobilize the use of such services.
