ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to attempt a text network analysis for two years of 「Reference Materials for Librarian」(2016-2017) published by the Library Operation Methodology Research Institute in North Korea. A text network analysis can measure how important a particular word by grasping the connectivity and relationship between words beyond a simple word frequency analysis, and it is also possible to interpret specific social phenomena and derive implications. Frequency, degree centrality, the betweenness centrality, community analysis of the collected words were calculated using NetMiner. As a result, the terms ‘users’, ‘information services’, ‘information needs’, ‘information technology’, ‘social learning’, ‘computers’, ‘databases’, ‘information acquisition’, ‘information retrieval’ and ‘librarian’ were appeared as important ones in understanding North Korean libraries.
