본 연구는 초등교사들의 정보추구행태를 분석하여 학교도서관의 교육정보서비스 개발에 시사점을 얻는데 목적을 두고 있다. 이에 초등교사 11명을 대상으로 심층 면담을 실시하여 초등교사들이 인식하는 역할과 업무에 대한 인식을 분석하고, 이에 따른 정보 요구와 주 정보원을 파악하였다. 분석 결과 초등교사들은 자신의 역할과 업무를 담임 업무, 교수·학습활동, 학교 담당 업무, 기타 업무 순으로 그 중요성을 인식하고 있었으며, 이에 따라 웹정보 및 인적 정보, 도서 정보 등을 정보원으로 활용하고 있었다. 각 역할과 업무에 따라 웹정보 또는 인적 정보를 주로 활용하는 것으로 나타났으며, 초등교사 간 웹 커뮤니티가 주 정보원으로 인식되는 경향을 보였다. 이에 학교도서관에서 운영하는 다양한 교육정보를 많은 초등교사들이 이용하는 웹 정보원에서 공유하는 것, 초등교사들과 학습 공동체 형성을 통해 협력적 교육 정보서비스를 제공하는 것, 학교도서관을 통해 다양한 담임 업무 관련 도서를 제공하는 것 등을 제안하였다.
