  • In this era of information, the public library takes a important role in the local community. In several years, public libraries have been proliferated in our society. However, there have not been specific planning standards of space size for construction of public library. The situation has lead the local governments to the need of consulting for the construction and management of library in search of appropriate guideline. The research paper focuses on the result of consulting support project for construction and management of public library. It examines total 11 libraries which were consulted from 2009 to 2011. It examines the configurational differences between the first scheme from the local government and the final scheme after the consulting, and the percentages of gross areas of each parts of library, reference and reading area, office area, education and cultural area, and public common use area. The analysis concludes that reference and reading area increased by 6.4% from 34.1% to 40.5%, and public common use area reduced by 6.1% from 30.2% to 24.1%, which represents a certain tendency of the configuration ratio of the each parts. Thus, the paper could be a starting point of establishing planning standard of space size for public library.

  • Establishing public libraries is more convenient in new towns than in older cities. This is because public libraries can be established during the construction of new towns. This study examined how public libraries were built in B new town, which is one of the first new towns constructed in the capital region of Korea. B new town has problems that not even one public library was operated before the people moved to the B new town and that establishing public libraries was not finished when the construction of the new town was completed. The number of public libraries is not enough in B new town. In conclusion, there are many problems in establishing public libraries in B new town.

  • As small-scale libraries such as Children Library, Small Library, Miracle Library, have recently increased in number, it is required to establish the library consulting system in order to provide them with special knowledges and experiences necessary for library construction and operation. The result of the survey about public librarian's opinions confirms that the latent demand for library consulting is very high. In case of our country where the social experience in library consulting service is insufficient, it is desirable that the library consulting service be executed by the government offices as public service.

  • The British public library services could be provided earlier than other countries as a result of the Industrial Revolution which was started in the U.K. earlier than other countries. Britain has steadily been building public library infrastructure during the last 150 years and currently maintains the highest level of public library services and operation. Until the 20th century, each local government in Britain remodeled other buildings into libraries and adopted a small and simple form of library building to build more libraries and also to help the convenient use of library, while minimizing the cost of library construction. The construction of public libraries of local governments was supported by the Public Libraries(and Museums) Act enacted in 1850. Korea is in an effort to build more public libraries. The study suggests that a small and simple form of library building should be constructed in order to build more public libraries with minimum costs.

  • The purpose of this research is to empirically analyze the effect of public library use on the construction of social and cultural capital and the close of social classes reproduction through the survey targeting public library users. As a result, the use of public libraries positively affects the construction of both social and cultural capital. In contrast, it partially addresses the problems in social classes reproduction because the social classes with higher levels of education and income tend to use public libraries more often. In order to take a role of and contribute to equal construction of social and cultural capital, public libraries need to be public places for open and social interaction. In addition, it is necessary for public libraries to improve their roles to allow community members to access and utilize various cultural resources.

  • This study examines public libraries being built using the BTL (Build-Transfer-Lease) method, which is one type of Private Finance Initiative, in order to investigate effective ways of building public libraries in Korea. A literature search, field research and interviews were the methods used for the study. One library was built and eight other libraries are in the process of construction using the BTL method in six cities in Korea in 2008. The study revealed that the bigger libraries are being built using the BTL method. The study suggests that in order to effectively increase the public library infrastructure within a short period of time in Korea, smaller libraries should be built using the BTL method.
