  • It was considered that the construction of new towns between the late 1940s and the early 1990s affected the increase of the number of public libraries in the U.K. Many new towns are being built in Korea. This is a very good chance to build more public libraries in Korea. This study selected and examined Milton Keynes which is one of the best new towns in the U.K. to see how the public libraries were built in the new town. It was revealed that the plan of building public libraries was included in the new town plan and public libraries were built according to these plans.

  • This study investigated the ratios of area, according to the domains and functions, of a public library. To this end, 20 public libraries were selected as samples from the 2012 Public Library Construction Casebook and from cases of consulting on the construction and operation of public libraries. The domains of a public library were categorized into data reading, cultural education, operation, common use, and others. There was a large difference in the area ratios between public libraries that were built with the aid of consulting (Group B) and those without consulting (Group A). In functional terms, the data(bookshelf) space and reading space had similar ratios within a data reading room, while the ratio of the library information space was smaller. Within a general data reading room, the ratio of the library information space was 12%, while the ratios of the data space and seating space were 44%, respectively. Moreover, within a data reading room for children, the ratios of the library information space and children's space were adjusted to 14%, respectively, while the data space and seating space each accounted for 36%, with either 3- or 5-decker bookshelves installed. This study has identified how to calculate the area for each domain, capacity of books, and seating capacity by applying area ratios through functions in the data storage domain, along with numbers of books and seats per unit space. This study has also succeeded in calculating the required area and seats for each type of data storage room by applying the number of books that exist. However, this study has its limitation in that the regional characteristics(Metropolis, Small & medium size cities, Rural areas) were not considered because the number of samples was only 20 libraries.

  • This study considers that the establishment of a public library within multi-use complex is one of the most effective ways to expand infrastructure of public libraries in Korea. A survey on the complexation rates of public libraries in Seoul was made through on-the-spot visits and telephone interviews. It turned out that out of all 112 public libraries in Seoul, 55 of them are in multi complex buildings. In order to efficiently establish public libraries to multi-use complex, absolute consideration on the size, location, and space should be made. Moreover, if necessary, additional complexation with commercial facilities, schools, and local government buildings should be made.

  • This study illustrates the process of the development of founding collection in public libraries. Specifically, this study surveys such cases of ten public libraries recently opened. It also analyzes current laws and standards about library collection and compares the criteria with the ones in various manuals and reports. For the study, supplementary data were also collected through qualitative interviews and brain-storming discussions with public librarians and other regional government officials who were in charge of the library construction project. For the suggestion to improve the quality of such founding collection, the researcher put the emphasis on the construction of collection development policy for the library, on the official collection plan, on the adequate volume of founding collection, and on the strategies for collection programs about regional studies.

Research method used was a questionnaire and subjects were residents and library users lived in Yongin where a new library was constructing. The results show that library use behavior, age, and user companions are identified as factors to influence to both functional space ratio and functional space arrangement. Heading in libraries is major activity and many subjects went to library with family so that family space is needed. Space for variable ages, also, is needed because of different needs based upon ages.

  • Public libraries in Korea have increased dramatically in number through the last 45 years.However, compared to the public libraries of the United States of America, United Kingdom of Britain, and Japan, public libraries in Korea tended to have a higher rate of capita visits per a public library, so public libraries' infrastructure in Korea is very inadequate. This research analyzed cooperative network cases for public libraries of London Borough of Camden, Ootaku in Janpan, and Bucheon City in Korea to deduct a plan to broaden the service area and to make management more efficient by managing based on the single-administrative district area as a regional library system. With these results this research excogitated a cooperative network model and a plan to make the management more efficient. As a conclusion, as public libraries increase in numbers we need to examine the proper scale, and we need to construct a central-concentrated system to enhance management efficiency between a central library and branch lib aries or small libraries.

  • The purpose of this basic study is to examine the economic feasibility analysis of Busan Central Library, which was included the construction feasibility analysis conducted as one part of the Busan Central Library Construction Master Plan. To achieve the purpose of this study, it was accomplished to do Benefit-Cost analysis, Net Present Value, Internal Rate of Return. CVM(Contingent Valuation Method) was used for calculating the benefit; we investigated two CVMs for Busan Central Library, which are for central construction site and for outer construction site. The results show that the construction of Busan Central Library in the central site would be feasible from the economic point of view. On the contrary, the construction in the outer site would not be feasible economically.
