ABSTRACT

This study aims to suggest the ways to reinforce academic library’s research support services for professors and researchers in Korea. For this purpose, this study collected the development plans of academic libraries in Korea, and analysed the plans for supporting research activities, and also analysed each library’s homepage. And this research classified the research support services of academic libraries into eight types for further analysis. The types are ‘subject guide’, ‘academic information literacy’, ‘research analysis service’, ‘research consulting’, ‘research ethics education’, ‘thesis writing guide’, ‘bibliography management program’, ‘interlibrary loan·original text copy’. As a result, it is shown that the most libraries emphasized ‘custom-tailored user education’ and marked it on development plan. As subsequent plans, libraries provided the action plans of ‘expansion of scholarly DB instruction on each subject’, ‘expansion of custom-tailored research support services’, ‘construction of research support service system’ one after another. This study suggests ‘activation of subject guide service’, ‘expansion of academic information literacy programs for supporting research’, ‘introduction of research performance analysis services’, and ‘support for establishment of research ethics’ as ways to strengthen academic libraries’ research support services.
