  • This study aims to analyze the properties of the tags used in the fiction genre, the structural aspect of the patterns and the contents of the tags by utilizing LibraryThing, where the tags are assigned in work units of FRBR. A comparative analysis was conducted in terms of the level of association between the descriptive terms in bibliography and LCSH terms. The study also examined the sources of the tags not included in the bibliographic descriptions or LCSHs, what aspects of work they represented, and the terms used as tags in relation to the work. By restricting the study to a single genre, a number of tags that reflected the characteristics of fiction (three elements of the fiction which are theme, plot, style and three elements of the fiction composition which are character, event, setting) were extracted. This study finds out the role of the tag making up the taxonomy and proposes a new direction for the tagging system by demonstrating the possibility of using tags as facets in information organization and retrieval.

  • In this study we determine the level of awareness among academic librarians of ten technological tools as outlined in American Libraries. Towards this end, we conducted a survey targeting 156 academic librarians in 25 Korean university libraries. Questionnaires were designed to determine both the viability and level of acceptance of the ten technological proposals in question. Conclusions drawn after analyzing the responses to the survey were as follows: 1) Customer service can be improved by first drawing up a list of technological skills required for staff members. Methods to develop the cataloging service to more closely match individual user preferences and the use of SMS to send alerts proved to be the proposals, of the ten that were proposed, that not only bore the greatest necessity but also proved to be the most effective once they were implemented. 2) Proposals that proved to be the most difficult to implement were: Using technology to improve the cataloging service to make it more capable of evolving according to the individual preferences of users; the special event wiki for users; and improvements in customer service arising from identifying and drawing up a list of technological skills required for staff members.

This kind of cooperation should gradually expand to an extent that allows actual benefits such as building union catalog, inter-library loan system, resource sharing, standardized cataloging rules, and exchange of dissertation... etc. Thirdly, developing the library policies and systems for the national unification must be based on the concept of the mutual cooperation as inter-dependent model rather than on the concept of the incorporation-absorption as a dominant model.
