ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to find ways to improve the evaluation system of school library operation whose participation rate is getting lower. We conducted analyzing the current status of operating evaluation of school libraries through literature search. In doing so, questionnaire method was conducted to inquire the recognition of the 205 staff members of school libraries. The outcome of the survey shows that the participation rate of operating evaluation of school libraries decreased from 22.2% in 2009 to 7.2% in 2017. The validity of the quantitative evaluation method was significantly low at 2.84 and the validity of the qualitative evaluation method was 2.97. The average score of the validity index for 'Establishing the annual operation plan' was the highest at 3.90, and that of 'Community service' was the lowest at 2.27. The biggest reason for not participating in the evaluation was due to the staff's high workload. There is a need to seek ways to improve the evaluation index and ways to participate since the result shows very low awareness of the school library evaluation. Through this study, it is expected that the school library evaluation will become the foundation for effective revitalization of school library operation.
