As Korea’s first digital library,
the future-oriented LG Sangnam Library
constantly pursues invocation.

At the opening ceremony, it was stated: “We expect LG Sangnam Library to become a source of information that never ceases to supply useful data for Korea’s science and technology research sector, and to suggest a new model for libraries in Korea.” Accordingly, LG Sangnam Library has played a pioneering role and reached several milestones through a series of innovations. By June 2000, the library digitized 1.68 million overseas articles on science and technology, and made them available online for free. As a result, some 2.26 million users accessed articles 5.66 million times. In addition, more than 5,600 library officials from 1,000 institutions have visited the library, making it a benchmark for digital library projects.
