Using an Ontology to Develop the Learning Outcomes in Library

Abstract

Recently, Learning Outcomes(LO) are relevance feedback information from learning activities in the university. Library is a centre of the resource services to support these activities. However, stakeholders are student, teacher, department, faculty and university which have different activities and goals. In this study, Valaya Alongkorn Rajabhat University Library is used as case study, it provides the services such as borrowing and returning materials, reference, wireless access, interlibrary loan, etc. based on the learning activities monitoring. It captured all the goals from each stakeholder and found that the matching between goals and services will improve the Library development. An ontology is the methodology to capture , describe and represent the matching tables as ontological strategic framework via common understanding formats. Finally, it helps library to develop a strategy and present the evaluation criteria such authority, accuracy, concurrency, and ownership from this framework.
