Grants & Grant Reviews:

  • Jung-ran Park (PI). Modeling Interpersonal Discourse for Digital Information Service: Evaluation of the Question Answering Service of the Internet Public Library. Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) $267K for a two-year period (2008-2010).

     

    Through this research grant, Dr. Jung-ran Park (PI) seeks to analyze interpersonal communication between librarians and the public in digital information service. Using email and real-time chat transcripts from the Internet Public Library’s Question Answering Service, the study will examine socio-interpersonal communication patterns realized in interaction between librarians and the public. The project aims at modeling interpersonal discourse for assessing the impact of interpersonal communication for effective digital information service.  The outcomes of this project will have potential to enhance the capacity of digital librarianship and be applicable to other information-seeking and sharing services through the computer-mediated communication channel as well as to interaction design of the emerging social technologies.

  • Jung-ran Park (PI). Metadata Creation and Metadata Quality Control across Digital Collections: Evaluation of Current Practices.

Through this early career development grant ($439K) funded by IMLS for a three-year period (2006-2009), the PI  seeks to evaluate the current practice of metadata creation and concomitant quality control measures employed by libraries. The overarching research questions of this early career development plan are derived from issues surrounding the metadata creation process, the employment of controlled vocabulary schemes, metadata quality control measures, and new competencies and skill sets faced by cataloging professionals in the digital era with associated consequences to LIS education. This research project aims to examine current practices in the creation of descriptive metadata elements and the use of controlled vocabularies for subject access across distributed digital collections and to identify factors hindering consistent, accurate and complete metadata description, resulting in the imposition of an impediment to resource sharing and access across distributed digital collections. In addition, new competencies and skill sets needed by cataloging professionals in developing digital collections will be assessed through this research grant.
