  • This study focuses on the analysis of the Cooperative system of Japanese local libraries (Do-do-bu-ken prefecture) in Japan, which perform similar functions along a similar hierarchy with the local representative libraries in South Korea. I would like to use this analysis as material for my report. For the study, I visited eight distinguished and advanced Japanese local libraries (Do-do-bu-ken prefecture) that had been selected by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) to analyze the current situation of the Cooperative system and service. I conducted space planning through plan analysis by selecting five out of the eight libraries. As a result, it was shown that the Japanese local libraries (Do-do-bu-ken prefecture) accurately recognize the roles and functions as a regional central library of Japan and conduct Cooperative system not only with the National Diet Library of Japan but also with regional central libraries in the whole country. In terms of the space planning, the ratio of the space occupied by the task management part of the office area and the support area showed the highest space planning ratio according to role for the library.
