ABSTRACT

This study aimed to propose the approach to identify and solve the problems by analyzing the present occupation index of librarians and the future occupation index of librarians after 10 years through the comparison with other jobs. In accordance with the investigation on the LIS students and librarians, the present wage level and the estimated wage level after 10 years were lower than that for other jobs and the employment demand was also lower. Both the students(58.4%) and the librarians(64.2%) considered that the number of full-time employment and the turnover were lower than other jobs. As a result of the analysis, first, this paper proposed to change part-time workers into full-time workers for improving the low wage issue of librarians. Second, ‘1 public library per 50,000 citizen’ was suggested to increase the employment of librarians. Finally, it is proposed to cancel the project to contract out the operation of public libraries and BTL implementation.
