ABSTRACT

This study is to propose the philosophical direction of public library services based on human rights. To accomplish this purpose, this study comparatively analyzed key concepts from 13 statements related to IFLA as well as UDHR with the inductive approach for qualitative data analysis. The result shows that the most important concepts of human right emphasized from IFLA statements are 1) UDHR Article 19: Freedom of opinion and expression, and Freedom of information access, 2) Article 2: No distinction of any kind, Article 12: Privacy, and Article 26: Education, 3) Article 18: Freedom of thoughts, conscience and religion, and Article 27: Cultural life. From this result, this study finally suggests that the concept of human rights should be added to the Korean Library Law.
