  • With the popularization of smartphones, the mobile demand for information from libraries is increasing and mobile library service will soon be quired. This study analyzed the mobile library services for the mobile webs established by 4 university libraries in Korea and 56 belonging to ARL in the United States. It examined 42 mobile applications developed by universities and university libraries in Korea, and 18 mobile applications developed by the universities and university libraries belonging to ARL in the United States. Mobile accessibility was assessed by conducting mobileOK test for the mobile websites of the same libraries. The study shows that university libraries in Korea should establish mobile websites focusing on key contents which reflect the demand for mobile information of users, and secure mobile web accessibility which the users could conveniently use.

  • In this study, we analyzed the academic library websites in terms of information structure, navigation, and labeling system. The study showed that the information structure was linear. In analyzing 8 library sites, we found many common top-level categories but ultimately, the number of main menu ranged from 4 to 15 categories. Also, the results showed that the sites used a sub-domain such as mobile, or just m to keep it short. It seemed to keep the mobile site part of the library site without creating confusion. Finally, Labeling in some mobile sites was not clear and consistent.

  • This study aimed to analyze users' behaviors to use mobile services of academic libraries by indirectly observing users' experiences based on their diaries. Ultimately, this study intended to contribute to the development of mobile services in academic libraries by helping academic libraries understand users and their needs of mobile services. For this, diary method was conducted with 20 students at two academic libraries. These participants should report detailed process and thoughts immediately after using mobile library services at least once a day during a week. Totally 137 diaries were collected. And then this study conducted a content analysis to figure out what information needs they had, whether or not the needs were solved, what menu they selected, and what steps and gaps they got.

  • This research evaluates the accessibility of the mobile applications for the South Korean libraries based on the accessibility guideline from the Ministry of Security and Public Administration. In order to enhance the credibility of the evaluation, this current research covers both the accessibility for the visually impaired and the accessibility for the people without disabilities. The research found four main results. First, we found that only 21 libraries (31%) provide alternative texts. Out of the 21 libraries, only one provide alternative texts across all sections of the mobile applications, including the main page, data search, information assistance, etc. Second, most of the mobile applications provide contents in texts, and the subtitles, sign language, blinking and background music provided as required or recommended standard by the guideline lack correlation. Third, alternative texts, focus movement, accessibility of operating system, button motion control, spacing between control and alarm functions must follow the standard guideline for the people with disabilities to use the mobile applications. Fourth, follow-up research on the development of accessibility standard for library mobile application is necessary in order to enable people with disabilities to freely use the library mobile applications.
