ABSTRACT

In this study, the current status of the public library steering committee, which is operated in accordance with Article 30 Paragraphs 2 and 3 of the Libraries Act, was examined and understood through a survey, and the direction of the promotion and policy for revitalizing the steering committee was sought moving forward. As a result of the analysis performed, the number of operations is once or twice a year, and the decisions of the steering committee meetings are reported to their supervisors, yet the reporting and disclosure of the meeting minutes are not mandatory in terms of regulations, etc., and while the importance was recognized, it turned out that the operation was carried out formally due to the lack of personnel in charge. The primary factors for revitalizing the operation were investigated as the structure of the committee, the responsibilities and authority of the committee, and the assignment of dedicated staff, etc. While there was a high perception that the enactment of a standard ordinance (proposal) was necessary, the concerns about the inhibition of autonomy were also mentioned, and hence, it is necessary to enact a standard ordinance(proposal) that sufficiently guarantees autonomy. To revitalize the steering committee, it is necessary to find various utilization and operational plans by considering holding regular meetings, supplementing systems and regulations that can reflect meeting decisions, establishing subcommittees, and assigning dedicated staff.
