In an effort to find ways to improve the potential usefulness of the cataloging practices in Korea, the general purposes of the catalog use studies and their implications are discussed. The summary of applicable methods of catalog use studies is followed by an overview of several actual investigations carried out in' various institutions mainly in U.S. Some of the outstanding and specific findings from these research projects as well as reports from other published papers are provided for points to be concerned, analyzed, and compared for future investigative efforts. The need for an evaluative study of the catalog card contents and arrangement is suggested in view of the Korean people who use it with different background and circumstances compared with Anglo-American tradition.
