“The NLK is the nation’s flagship library and the International Peace Foundation is a leading organization in the field of research, education, and exchanges on behalf of promoting international peace. Through mutual cooperation, it is hoped that the two organizations can contribute to sharing knowledge and information resources, supporting academic and research activities, and facilitating data-sharing services for the promotion of the use of national policy information,” said Chief Executive Suh Hye Ran.
