The National Archives of Korea’s government publications

Government publications are published by public institutions under the Act on the Management of Public Archives Article 3 Section 1 to share the purpose and work responsibility of an institution within the institution or with the general public. As government publications include policy implementation process and result, various statistics and research/survey results, they are used as national policy legislation and administration reference materials.

The National Archives of Korea’s Government Publications Collection provides catalogue information of 240,486 government publications published between 1953 and 2015 and transferred to the National Archives of Korea and published between 1953 and 2015 by various institutions as well as full-text image of 169,222 books.


For users’ convenient searching, the collection provides functions such as Search by Keyword, Search by Publication Year, Search by Publishers and Search by Publication Type.


The Search by Publishing Institution menu is for searching government publications by publishing institution (e.g. national administrative organization, self-governing organization, educational organization, legislative organization, government investment institution, affiliated organization, committee, elementary school, middle school, high school, higher education institution, judicial authority, constitutional institution). Institutions (including abolished institutions) are classified by the administrative standard code.

By using the Search by Government Publication Type, you can search by material type (e.g. yearbook, white paper, statistics collection, handbook, project report, research/survey report, historical record book, institutional publication, educational material, meeting material, catalogue, lecture book and exhibition/illustrated book/art book).

The Advanced Search function is for searching by keyword, publishing institution, publication year, publication type, open/closed status (open, partially open, closed), full-text service etc. Using the filter function, you can re-search within searched results and restrict search results. For materials provided with full-text, you can see the full-text of the material with a single click.
