Book-loan is the most important library service. Studying users’ book-loan behavior patterns can help libraries to provide more proactive services. Based on users’ book-loan history in a university library, we could build a book-borrowing network between users and books. Furthermore, users who borrow the same books are linked together. The users and links then form a co-borrowing network which can be regarded as a knowledge sharing network. Both the book-borrowing network and the co-borrowing network can be used to study users’ book-loan behavior patterns. This paper presents a study in analyzing users’ book-loan behaviors and mining knowledge dependency between schools and degrees in Peking University. The mining work is based on the book-borrowing network and its corresponding co-borrowing network. To the best of our knowledge, it is the first work to mine knowledge dependency in digital library domain.
