While there are many published works to guide users in the use of documents produced by the United States government, there are few designed to aid in the use of the official publications of other countries where the national language is not generally well known outside the country itself. Korea is one such area to which the library and academic communities have had little access. This guide explores official publishing in Korea from pre-modern times to 1948, the development of government publishing since 1948, publications of the executive, legislative and judicial branches of Korean government, and electronic information sources. Wilson's examination of Korean publications, consultation with experts in the field, and many research trips have come together in an exhaustive resource that helps librarians and researchers unravel the intricacies of official Korean publications, with primary emphasis on South Korea.

MEDIA REVIEWS
No one is more fitting than Myoung Chung Wilson to author this book. Her intimate knowledge of Korean culture and excellent command of the Korean language enables her to make on-the-spot research by visiting the Korean Government Publishing Office and various Korean libraries which hold government publications. Her rich experience working as a reference and government documents librarian in a large public research university in the USA helps her to dig deeply, picking and choosing wisely from the wealth of Korean government publications those items 'that are of particular value to researchers, decision makers, and the library community'....titles are well selected, well organized and well focused. The annotations are clear and concise...The information in the book is as up to date as any book can be...a valuable compendium that is highly recommended for researchers and institutions interested in modern South Korea, particularly in its science, education, history, politics and social and economic development. * Collection Building *
Wilson's guide is valuable for students, researchers, and librarians who need North and South Korean government publications...she provides useful information... * CHOICE *
