Welcome to the National Assembly Library of the Republic of Korea.

The National Assembly Library of the Republic of Korea was established to collect a wealth of information from around the world for delivery to members of the National Assembly and the general public. In doing so, it helps promote parliamentary democracy, enhances our quality of life, preserves the intellectual heritage of mankind, and transmits that heritage to the next generation.

Starting with around 3,000 books and 1 librarian in Busan, the wartime capital city of South Korea in 1952, the National Assembly Library is celebrating its 65th anniversary in 2017. The library currently holds over 6 million books, provides 220 million pages of full-text databases through its digital library, stays open until 10 PM on weekdays and weekends, and grants young people the right to free access to the library, providing maximum convenience to all types of users.

With the goal of developing the library’s status as a core place for legislative information, a digital library that leads the advanced information age, an open library familiar with people, our staff and I promise to do our best to serve you.

The National Assembly Library will continue to maintain its natural roles in preserving data and securing access to it, sharing valuable cultural heritage by excavating and exhibiting parliamentary records with people, and playing a critical role as a national library for leading the 4th industrial revolution era.
