【目的】本研究の目的は,選書ツールの例として株式会社図書館流通センター(TRC)の『週刊新刊全点案内』およびTRC MARCや物流・納品サービスを取り上げ,公共図書館が選書業務の中にTRCの『週刊新刊全点案内』およびTRCのサービスをどのように位置づけているかを明らかにすることである。



Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to clarify how public libraries use the Weekly New Books Guidance provided by TRC Library Service Inc. (TRC), TRC MARC and to identify how sources and services provided by TRC are located in their task of selecting resources in public libraries.

Methods: From November 19–30, 2010, we conducted semi-structured interview surveys at four city libraries and two town libraries in X Prefecture. The librarians were asked six questions pertaining to their library’s budget and number of staff, the librarians’ years of experience and likelihood of continuing employment, the type of neighborhood surrounding the library, user age and constitution of the neighboring inhabitants, method of selecting resources, use of the Weekly New Books Guidance, and obstacles to selecting resources and their measures.

Results: As a result of our investigation, it became clear that public libraries, regardless of their size, depend to a considerable extent on TRC’s tools, such as Weekly New Books Guidance and TOOLi, when conducting resources selection. However, it was also revealed that public libraries collect information from multiple viewpoints using tools other than the Weekly New Books Guidance. This was true for all the libraries investigated. Due to falling budgets and the resultant staff shortages making the selection of resources more difficult, we conclude that the Weekly New Books Guidance and other TRC’s services make it possible to perform better resource selection and with less effort.
