The NLK expands non-contact services to include broadcast and performance recordings and academic resources
Starting in January 2022, the National Library of Korea (Chief Executive Suh Hye Ran) will expand the types of materials that can be accessed online from 49 to 53. This will include domestic and international e-books, newspapers and magazines, image and sound recordings, and academic materials.
In an effort to support citizens who wish to access cultural content on the internet, the library will improve both internal and external access to a wide range of resources from broadcast and performance films and popular books on hobbies and other practical subjects to academic resources such as the Women’s Studies Archive and the Literary Reference Center Plus. These academic resources in particular have been difficult to access by South Korean researchers and the general public due to low subscription rates among domestic institutions.
▲ Eleven databases on culture and arts content and popular books and 42 academic databases
Anyone with an NLK user card can log on to the library website (nl.go.kr > Search > Web DB) to enjoy domestic videos, including documentaries and news, National Geographic magazine, performances by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, electronic files on the arts, and domestic and overseas academic databases, among other materials.
“Everybody feels fatigue from the prolonged Covid-19 pandemic. We hope access to this diverse online content will help citizens feel nourished and continue to enjoy culture during these difficult days,” said Chief Executive Suh Hye Ran.
