The purpose of this study is to examine how the commonly known profile of public library users was described, by reviewing the literature published in the United States before the 1990s, when information environment of the public has been drastically changed. The profile of users as the socio-economically advantaged, active participants, and communication elites, has little changed since Berelson's study in the 1940s. Continuing research on users, however, are still needed to better understand their needs and behavior, facing the change since the 1990s.攀＊＊ 청주대학교 인문대학 인문학부 문헌정보학전공 전임강사(email@example.com) 논문접수일자 : 2004년 7월 24일 게재확정일자 : 2004년 9월 15일攀攀
