In the knowledge & information society, Nurimedia has digitalized, built up into databases, and supplied the Koreanological contents, including the statute books, encyclopedia, classic works and authentic history such as Koryosa (ancient Korea History), Tripitaka Koreana, Samguk-Sagi/Samguk-Yusa (Histories of the Three Kingdoms), Balhaesa (History of Balhae Kingdom), Mokminsimseo, DaejeonHoitong, Jeungbomunheonbigo.

Based on the technology gained from experiences, Nurimedia is establishing an E-library of Koreanology. Furthermore, Nurimedia will integrate the knowledge-contents of various fields into digitalized databases, and build up an enriched thesaurus of knowledge-contents.

For we believe that everyone should be able to access high quality digital contents with only a single click, we are making every effort to achieve the goal.
