Abstract:As the UNESCO (2005) definition of knowledge society highlights the important roles of libraries, public libraries have devoted to building a knowledge society that helps cultivate people’s ability to identify, use, and transform information into knowledge. Among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) proposed by the United Nations in 2015, equity, inclusion, and sustainability have been emphasized, balancing global and local public good. It is important for public libraries to incorporate these concepts into the knowledge society. Developing national public library policies helps guide the direction of professional development and quality services as a whole. However, such national policies are currently not available in Taiwan. With an ultimate goal to propose a national policy for public libraries in Taiwan, this study aims to develop strategic focus areas through a two-stage practice-based approach of interpretive policy analysis.
