ABSTRACT

The legal deposit for the national library in all countries is the most important mean for acquiring the country’s off-line and on-line publications. Because of many limitations of legal deposit system, however, the National Library of Korea does not properly collect the useful materials produced or manufactured in Korea. In order to solve this problem, the author analyzed the status of collection development by legal deposit and estimated the total amount of domestic publications. Based on the these results, author suggested five plans for strengthening the national collections in terms of the provisional ‘deposit law’, the further development and complementary of current legal deposit regulations (guidelines and standards), desirable amendments of the legal deposit provisions in library act, reasonable division of the deposit targets, and optimization strategies of acquisition scope by material types.
