ポピュラーライブラリーエリア創出の可能性 : 地域公共図書館における開架フロアのゾーニング手法に関する研究(1) A POSSIBILITY OF PLANNING A POPULAR LIBRARY AREA : Studies of the method of zoning an open shelf floor at public libraries (1)
Both a multiple use and a family use of public libraries have increased recently. The former means that many adults use not only books but also magazines and AV materials, and the latter means that many children use libraries with their family. A series of studies shows that the method of zoning an open shelf floor with a popular library area is more reasonable and effective for those uses. In this method, an open shelf floor is divided into two zones in public libraries. One is an “active zone,” which consists of a popular library area with a children's area, a newspaper and magazines' area, and an AV materials' area. The other is a “quiet zone,” which consists of other adults' book area with a reference area.<br>The results of this research are as follows: in most of general 7 public libraries, there is a principle that adults' books are arranged in order of the class and division of NDC. But the parts of <5.technology & engineering> books are not placed in the order and placed near a children's area or a newspaper and magazines' area. Many people use those books on technology and engineering more than other books. Therefore it can be said that some of those books is the core of a popular library.
