1Chen, K.-n.: Dynamic subject numbers replace traditional classification numbers.
In: Knowledge organization. 40(2013) no.3, S.160-168.
Abstract: This article presents a new idea on shelving printed books and finding books in libraries. The author advocates that traditional book classification number (TBCN) systems should be replaced by a better indexing method for books in libraries. The author proposes a new way of seeking books for library users wishing to locate them called a 'dynamic book subject number' (DBSN) system. The new system combines new indexing rules and automated system technology to create settings in which a book's 'subject number' can change rather than having a particular permanent classification number assigned to it. The new way encourages library users to seek books through a user-friendly cataloging system by choosing subjects from the embedded database. The database contains thousands of subjects with their corresponding Arabic codes. For printed books, the DBSN ushers in a new era in the relationship between library users and the books.

2Chen, K.-n. ; Lin, P.-c.: Information literacy in university library user education.
In: Aslib proceedings. 63(2011) no.4, S.399-418.
Abstract: Purpose - The aim of this paper is to determine the essential features of information literacy; what role it should play in university library user education; and how programs can be best implemented. Design/methodology/approach - The researchers systemically surveyed and reviewed publications related to information literacy and library user education. Findings - It was found that a well-designed information literacy program benefits the library and its staff, faculty, and students; librarians should play a leading role in the design and operation of programs, but collaboration with faculty, IT professionals and students is essential; programs should be embedded in the curriculum, be largely cooperative, and be problem-based; evaluation and assessment are essential components; emphasis should be placed on first-year students; and, ideally, the librarians will turn into educators and the library will become a learning center combining learning, research and technology. Research limitations/implications - This paper reflects the opinions of the researchers and the authors of the reviewed literature who have insights into the issues related to information literacy and library user education. These opinions present useful guidelines for both librarian and teacher practitioners. Originality/value - This paper provides a point of view on the relationship between information literacy and library user education in the six themes described above.
