East Asia Digital Library (EADL)


The East Asia Digital Library (EADL) is a portal site focusing on East Asian cultural and scientific resources. The National Library of Korea and the National Diet Library, Japan develop and operate the site collaboratively.

The EADL makes primary materials about East Asia available free of charge and in multilingual format.

In addition to simple searches using keywords, users can perform advanced searches by using the document title, the creator of the work, and digitized materials of the old materials. The participating institutions select and catalogue all digital resources.
