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.
