ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to establish the concept of theme collection in the library, to clarify the reality of the theme collection operation. This study was to set up methodology for constructing and operating the theme collection in the future and to provide implications for future development. For this purpose, this study conducted in-depth interviews with a total of 12 directors and librarians from four public libraries. The results of the analysis revealed that the theme collection can be built and function properly with a solid understanding of its collection, users and community, and sharing its services goals and orientations. In addition, it was found that the task of constructing a theme collection contributes to the establishment of the identity of the librarian, and it is interrelated with the various library works.
