My biggest research questions are 1) what is a library? 2) why do we need a library? To answer these questions, I investigate the perception of libraries, information behavior, and value assessment of libraries.

Also, I focus on cultural or social differences in the concept of libraries from the viewpoint of comparative/international librarianship.
