The purpose of this study is to analyze the characteristics of OPAC displays and search interfaces for children. The OPACs of Cheongju Miracle Library, Nowon Children's Library in Seoul, Los Angeles Public Library in the U.S.A. and HelMet Library System in Finland are examined on the basis of 'OPAC Display Guidelines(Draft)' published by IFLA and Nielsen's 'User Interface Design Heuristics'.
