Abstract

In terms of expanding the infrastructure of public libraries, building many small-size libraries is more efficiency than building a small number of big size libraries. Korean public libraries have been built in big-size in compare to the public libraries in the developed countries. This study aims to analyse why the majority of the Korean public libraries have been built in middle and large size and the floor space of 791 public libraries were examined. It was revealed that the average floor space of 791 public libraries is $2,495m^2$. The study aims to find what policy on library building should be considered to expand effectively the infrastructure of public libraries.
