The purpose of this study is to develop the research support service model of a university library, which prepares for the changing research environment and supports the entire research process. In particular, components of the research support service at each stage of research are developed based on ‘the research lifecycle’ to support the entire research process. First, constructed elements of research support services that should be supported at each stage of the study through literature reviews and surveys of service demand. Next, a survey and in-depth interview were conducted with service providers to ensure effective service operation. This research support service model developed through the processes above are proposed as ‘the research support service component model’ that consists of six steps and 50 components including 20 core elements and as ‘the research support service operation system model’ that is composed of the organic system among government and related organizations, university libraries and organizations inside universities.
