Accessing the National Library of Korea at King Sejong Institutes around the world

- On May 26, the NLK signed an agreement with the King Sejong Institute Foundation -

The National Library of Korea (Chief Executive Suh Hye Ran) signed an agreement with the King Sejong Institute Foundation (President Lee Hai-young) with a goal of promoting access to South Korean digital knowledge and information resources and to facilitate the distribution and promotion of Korean language and culture around the world.

The main content of the agreement includes cooperation on access to and efficient use of digital knowledge and information resources; cooperation on the use of resources related to Korean language and Korean culture; and information exchanges and cooperation to support the advancement of Korean language and culture.

As part of its efforts to support the agreement, starting in late June the library will provide free access to the NLK’s knowledge and information resources to the King Sejong Institute Resources Rooms around the world that participate in the National Knowledge Resources Sharing Service. Using this service, overseas Koreans and non-Koreans interested in Korean language and culture can easily access South Korean knowledge content. The NLK will continue its information exchanges with the King Sejong Institute Foundation in order to promote the use and development of resources on Korean language and culture.

The National Knowledge Resources Sharing Service: With a goal of preserving and sharing knowledge and information resources, including the library’s collections (10 million items as of December 2021), the NLK digitizes and provides the resources to 3,282 domestic and overseas libraries via the internet. (The NLK provides library compensation (copyright fees for full-text viewing and printing).)

“The King Sejong Institute Foundation has been spearheading the promotion of Korean language and culture. At a time of growing interest in Korea-related content around the globe, our cooperation with the foundation will provide overseas users with more convenient online access to the NLK’s resources and opportunities to indirectly experience diverse forms of Korean culture,” said NLK Chief Executive Suh Hye Ran.
