Officials relied on it as a resource, through which they could enhance their knowledge and intellect, so that they would be better prepared to present major policy positions for the state, as political and social changes in the late Joseon Dynasty demanded active responses from the government. It is considered the organization that most completely fulfilled the spirit of Beobgo Changsin(“reviewtheoldandcreatethenew”), as it propelled the politics of the times through the review of old books and documents.
The books and documents c...
