This study aims to investigate and analyze the current status of book curation operation in elementary school libraries in Busan and the perception of librarians, and then to propose a plan to activate book curation in school libraries. A list of 304 school libraries in the Busan area was secured using the current status of school libraries in the 2021 National Library Statistical System. And then after selecting 121 school libraries with librarians, 83 schools that decided to participate in the survey were selected as final research subjects. Based on the current status of book curation operation and the results of the librarian’s perception survey, the following are proposed as a way to activate the book curation of the school library: 1) expansion and provision of specialized formal education on book curation, 2) development and dissemination of materials related to the operation of school library book curation, 3) continuous efforts of librarians to strengthen the capacity for book curation, 4) between school library librarians collaboration and information sharing.
This study identified the perceptions of library staff by type of library week through a survey and sought content that the library community should review to revitalize the legal library day and library week in the future. As a result of the analysis, it was found that the library staff’s experience of participating in the library week and satisfaction with the event support of the host organization were low. In addition, it was found that awareness of the legal library day and library week, which will be implemented from 2023, is quite low. There were many opinions about the national publicity of the library and sufficient budget support for the event as a focus for the promotion of Library Day and Library Week in the future. In order to effectively promote the legal library week in the future through an awareness survey of library staff, various efforts are made to improve the awareness of the library community, cooperation with other library types to induce participation in various types of institutions, and the formation of a promotion committee within the association for each type of library, and use of various media It was confirmed that active media publicity and securing budget were necessary.
This study investigated the cases of the domestic classification system and compared and analyzed them with the academic standard classification system to derive future improvement directions. The direction of future improvement of the academic standard classification system presented based on this is as follows. First, it seems necessary to clearly guarantee the operation of the classification system as a law for the continuous development of the academic standard classification system. Second, it is necessary to improve it to a comprehensive classification principle that satisfies both current issues and global universality so that domestic and foreign data can be collected and compared smoothly by producing a wide-ranging classification system. Third, it is necessary to select a clear revision cycle of the academic standard classification system, and it seems appropriate to proceed with the revision every five years in order to reflect the academic field across a vast field. Currently, research on such a domestic classification system is insufficient, and such investigations are continuously conducted in the future, requiring continuous interest and research on the domestic classification system.
