ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to analyze the current status of space use in university library and draw up considerations for enhancing space utilization based on the analysis results. For this purpose, the utilization rate of each space was analyzed by categorizing the user’s space of the university library, and secondly, the preferences of the major user groups were analyzed according to the characteristics of the users’ space. For empirical analysis, we collected and refined users’ space usage data (98,282 people's data 433,769 cases) accumulated for one year for the central library of “J” National University. Then we analyzed the usage pattern according to space and period(monthly, hourly). In addition, preferences for each major group of users (undergraduates, graduate students and graduates) in the library were analyzed through the library visitors’ data (2,426,553 cases) over the same period. The results of this study can be used as preliminary research for the composition and arrangement of users’ space in future university libraries.
