概要

The purpose of this study is to clarify the concepts of the browsing area at public libraries and to explain the reason why the newspapers and magazines area has been used as the browsing area in Japan. The results are as follows; In the United States, it was important in 1960's how "the informal reading areas" should be arranged at public libraries, but they were combined into the one called either "the browsing area" or "the popular reading area", because the function of each was not defined clearly. Recently this informal reading area, now called the popular reading area, with a collection chiefly of fictions and furnished with easy chairs, has been planned for people unfamiliar with public libraries. In Japan, public libraries of 1960's, when they were based on the closed stack system, turned the newspapers and magazines area into the informal reading area furnished with easy chairs, which was called "the browsing area". Even when public libraries turned into the ones on the open shelf system, this area has been still called the browsing area.
