ABSTRACT

As the number of university libraries which adopt subject divisional plan in Korea is increasing, lots of problems are coming out, which results from a lack of close examination and analysis before adopting, and the lack of continuous checking and evaluation after adopting. Therefore, this article will do the following. First, study the example of the U.S. university libraries which have a longer history of subject division adoption than Korea. It covers going through the situation at the moment of adopting, the phase of development and decline. Second, analyse the differences between the libraries in U.S. and Korea on the basis of first study. Finally, study the resonable adoption method considering the changing circumstances around libraries and forecast the future movement in adopting the subject division plan in the university libraries in Korea.
