Understanding and meeting the needs of a broad range of music users across different cultures and languages are central in designing a global music digital library. This exploratory study examines cross-cultural/multi- lingual music information seeking behaviors and reveals some important characteristics of these behaviors by analyzing 107 authentic music information queries from a Korean knowledge search portal Naver 지식 (knowl- edge) iN and 150 queries from Google Answers website. We conclude that new sets of access points must be de- veloped to accommodate music queries that cross cul- tural or language boundaries.
