Abstract

This article aims to evaluate the ability of the National Library of Indonesia in its function as a public library. It also describes the ability of the National Library of Indonesia organization in the context of Hybrid Library Governance (HLG). The article, through a qualitative descriptive approach, reveals the dimensions of the organization and shows the Indonesian National Library has formalised a support system in which there are several regulations that support the governance of the library. Moreover, within the dimensions of the process, national libraries have a budget, human resources, and technologies that support their performance. However, the library has not been able to maximize support in the process dimension as a strength of the organization. Therefore, the organization of the National Library of Indonesia, in working toward HLG, needs to strengthen its institutional organization in both its organization dimension and process.
