The purpose of this study is to analyze the duties and competencies of the teacher librarian required by schools as consumers to operate the curriculum, and to suggest ways to improve their professionality. To this end, the duties and competencies included in 20 job advertisements posted by IB schools to select teacher librarians were analyzed based on the IFLA School Library Guidelines. As a result of the analysis, it was found that the duties and competencies of IB schools are based on the IB curriculum guidelines and this guideline is based on the educational philosophy and learner image that IBO curriculum aims. And the job that schools want the most from the teacher librarian is teaching through library collection management and collaboration, and the main competencies for this are communication and collaboration skills, teaching-learning․curriculum․education design and operation, and digital & media literacy. The results of this analysis show that the professionalism should be based on the vision for the educated person and learner capabilities presented in the curriculum. Based on this results, in this study the ways for developing teacher librarians’ professionalism were presented in the following aspects. First, including the educational responsibilities of the school library in the Arrangement and Implementation Guideline of National Level Curriculum. Second, Classifying human resources’ duties through revision of the Enforcement Decree of the School Library Promotion Act.

The purpose of the study is to develop a unit catalog system that can be linked with the curriculum. As for the research method, first, unit subject words were extracted through the analysis of middle school curriculum and science textbooks in all grades. Based on this, we designed a unit catalog system that has a unit book catalog by connecting books related to the unit topic of the subject, an index word catalog that organizes unit subject words into index words, and a grade and school level linked subject linked to the unit topic as a subsystem. Using the Notion program, a unit catalog system was implemented on the web using a middle school science unit 1 as a sample. To evaluate the system, experiments and surveys were conducted targeting students, and very positive results were shown in terms of satisfaction with the system and intention to use it in the future. Meanwhile, this study was limited to middle school science departments, but it was proposed to expand the application to all grades and subjects.
This study based on the 8-step strategy model for change management proposed by J. P. Kotter, tried to check the perception and experience about change management of the librarians at National Library of Korea. Also this study aimed to figure out the understanding of each 8-step strategy model. To this end, the concept and process of change management were presented through literature analysis, and survey was conducted targeting 58 librarians of the National Library of Korea. This study drews five results. First, the majority of librarians at National Library of Korea do not know about change management, and they do not have experience in using change management techniques. Second, the period required for the 8-step change management process is 5 years. Third, during the change management stage, librarians’ awareness of the importance of stages 4 and 3 was high. Fourth, there is no difference in the librarians’ perceptions of change management by gender, education, major, and tasks. Fifth, there is a significant difference in the age and service years of the librarian in the 3rd, 4th, and 7th stages of change management. Also there is a significant difference in the position of the librarian at the 1st and 3rd stage of change management, and between librarians’ department and 1st stage of change management. The findings and results of this study can not only raise awareness of change management but also suggest organizational responses to change at individual or organizational level.
This study intends to design a model that can effectively service policy data necessary for the implementation of new national agenda in order to provide high-quality policy information services that go beyond those of the existing Policy Information Portal (POINT) of National Sejong Library. To this end, it was determined that providing an integrated search environment, in lieu of data search through individual access, was necessary. Subsequently, four possible models for a national agenda service model were presented. First, designing a computerized system for both interface and electronic information source aspects was proposed for the national agenda service system operation. Second, designing the Linked Open Data system and the time-series service system for national policy information, providing the translation service of overseas original data, and securing the researcher’s desired data were presented for the national agenda service information source operation. Third, strengthening public relations for policy users, building and promoting the site brand, operating SNS channels, and reinforcing the activation of auxiliary materials and the accessibility of external services were proposed for public relations of national agenda service. Fourth, expanding the information network with Open API, cloud service, and overseas libraries was proposed for collaborating and cooperating with the agenda service.
This study aims to propose the ways to improve the research performance evaluation to support the establishment of a sound research culture. For the study, we analyzed the cases of domestic and foreign research performance evaluation, and a survey and an interview were conducted for faculty and research performance evaluation officials, respectively. In the study, the direction of establishing the principle of research performance evaluation, the method of categorizing the type of research performance, the method and procedure of research performance evaluation, and necessary documents were proposed. First, eight principles were suggested to be considered in evaluating research achievements to ensure the validity, reliability, and transparency of the evaluation while supplementing the limitations of quantitative evaluation. Second, the main types of research achievements were categorized into journal articles, books, and presentations at academic conferences. Third, as a research achievement evaluation method, a hybrid evaluation using quantitative and qualitative and multiple measurement indicators was proposed. Fourth, a total of 11 steps (required 7 steps) were presented as a procedure for research achievement evaluation. Fifth, publications, evaluation documents, and committee chair’s reports were proposed as major documents for research achievement evaluation. The research achievement evaluation improvement plan presented in this study should be flexibly applied in consideration of the characteristics of the academic and research fields and universities.
This research aims to suggest the way of activation of book curation in secondary school libraries by analyzing examples of book curation and the recognition of the persons in charge of secondary school libraries. A documentary research and a survey is conducted. 192 school librarians are chosen for that survey in Incheon region secondary school. 4 teacher librarians of Incheon region secondary school and a professor of library and information science are interviewed. Also an investigation is executed by visiting school libraries. Augmentation of the persons in charge of secondary school libraries, coordinating and information sharing with educational teachers, establishment of manual for book curation operation, publishing examples of subject selection are suggested for the measure of activation of book curation.
Finding and selecting proper reviewers is a burden on the publisher of the journal. In order to solve this problem, the online submission system started to recommend appropriate reviewers automatically. It includes a variety of new features, from recommending authors in the references of submitted papers as reviewers to finding similar papers by searching the citation index and suggesting reviewer candidates extensively. This study investigated how the online submission system provides functions such as recommendation of reviewers. As a result of examining major online submission systems, ScholarOne and Editorial Manager were recommending reviewer candidates by commercial citation index and review history platform. On the other hand, JAMS, a domestic online submission system, did not have any advanced functions such as recommendation of candidates for reviewers. Sooner or later, in Korea, it seems that more efforts should be made to improve the function of online submission system, such as recommending suitable reviewers for papers.

It is hoped that the results of this research will be used as basic data for the operation of library reading rooms and the establishment of space reconstruction policies to cope with the New normal era after pandemic.
As part of open science, the government adopts a national research data sharing and utilization strategy, forms a governance system at the national level, and promotes policies for research institutes to implement. Although the policy for managing research data is carried out centering on the academic world, it is insufficient compared to developed countries, and even this is a reality in which researchers do not have enough awareness to introduce it to the field. The purpose of this study is to understand the research data management status of researchers in each academic field. Academic fields consisted of four fields including Library and Information Science, Statistics, Ecology, and Korean Musicology, and the current status of data management was identified through a survey. The current status of research data management was analyzed from the perspective of research data production, sharing and management, saving, preservation and reuse. As a result of the study, it was found that there were differences by discipline in terms of data production, data sharing and management, data preservation, and data reuse, except for data savings.
The Public Data Portal(data.go.kr) is a gateway for searching and using public data in South Korea. In 2021, the Ministry of Public Administration and Security established individual portal maintenance plans. Individual portals refer to portals built by public institutions in Korea other than the public data portal. According to the maintenance plan, the Korea Intelligence Information Society, the operator of the public data portal, needs to establish operating and data integration plans to link the public data portal and individual portals. In this study, we investigated the current operating status and data integration methods of the public data portal in South Korea, the United States, the United Kingdom, and France, and proposed that the adoption of a top-down approach is efficient when integrating data. In addition, we divided the specific procedures that should be pursued when integrating data into five stages: determination of data integration standard methods, analysis of metadata status, expansion of operating infrastructure, confirmation of data import, and launch of services.
