Information Sharing

NLK to share information on 220,000 authors and assign ISNIs

Starting February 1st, 2016, overseas users will be able to easily search materials written in Korean by Korean or foreign authors and researchers.

In 2015 the National Library of Korea (Chief Executive Lim Wonsun) signed an agreement with the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC), a worldwide library service organization, and provided a database containing information on 220,000 Korean and foreign authors, including various ways of writing the authors’ names, to be included in the OCLC’s Virtual International Authority File (VIAF).

The database has been integrated with author information from countries around the world and is available starting February.

The National Library of Korea’s participation in the VIAF is expected to lay the foundation for facilitating Korean materials services in overseas libraries and bookstores which had previously had difficulty in handling materials written in Korean.
