ABSTRACT

This article reviews the research products on user instruction of Korean university libraries. The focus is on identifying the trend, main features, and limitations of the relevant literature, with emphasis on both contents and methodology. To the end, 127 journal articles and theses are collected and analyzed, which have been produced since the mid-1970s. As a result, it is recognized the advanced research are not useful enough to be a knowledge base of Korean reference librarians, who have endeavored to improve the qualities of their user instruction programs. Above all, the advanced research turned out to be too much dependent on American theories and practices, instead of focusing on both indigenous phenomena and substantial problems which have been inherent in Korean university libraries.
