ABSTRACT

This study conducted a survey on the current status and satisfaction of libraries participating in the opening hours support project in order to continue it to meet the purpose of improving information access and life welfare. To this end, a questionnaire and interview survey were conducted for those in charge of opening hours for each library, and the results are as follows. First, the opening hours support project is a project that needs a strategy that fits the characteristics of the region and the environment. Therefore, it is necessary to consider operating independently rather than relying on national support in the future through the preparation of regional-oriented operation plans. Second, it is necessary to establish a flexible operating model for opening hours that both employees and users can understand. Third, it is necessary to prepare an organizational operation plan that requires both duties and responsibilities along with the rights equivalent to existing regular employees. Fourth, in order for national public libraries in Korea to develop and implement a consistent policy for specific policies and projects, it is necessary to unify the separate public library operating system in the future. Fifth, it is necessary to prepare education and guidelines for the continuity and stable operation of the project, and to activate services other than labor costs, such as support for improving the space for the user’s pleasant use.
