Developmental Book Activities and Needs in the Republic of Korea.
Barnett, Stanley A.; And Others
A three week survey was conducted to: (1) investigate the state of developmental book activity in Korea, (2) determine the priority of Korea's book needs, (3) develop program recommendations to meet the needs and (4) formulate regional recommendations. The prime recommendation is that the members of both the Special Planning Committee and the National Book Committee join to form a working committee to develop a national book plan for Korea. Additional recommendations on materials and methods needed are: (1) better quality books that will last two or more years, (2) offset presses working three shifts and using fewer four-colored illustrations, (3) seminars and workshops demonstrating the role of textbooks, (4) extension of the Textbook Depository Library Project, (5) upgrading the caliber of Korean language university textbooks, (6) enhancing library collections of purchased and donated English language books, (7) development of a public library system that will bring books in quantity to the villages and cities, (8) unification of the Central National Library and the National Assembly Library and (9) extension of library training programs.
