Cataloging of the Kyujanggak collections began in 1963 with that of the Korean works found in the Kyujanggak Books. The initial result was published in 1965. Thereafter, cataloging of the Chinese publications in the Kyujanggak Books, the modern acquisitions, and the books from private collections had been completed by 1982. The following indexes have been published.

This is the result of the cataloging project carried out by the Research Institute of East Asian Culture at Seoul National University beginning 1963. In this work, 73,421 Korean books are classified according to the traditional method of four-division classifications--that is, division of Confucian classics (gyeongbu 經部), division of histories (sabu 史部), division of miscellanies (jabu 子部), and division of collected works (jipbu 集部). The lists of unclassified books and the names of authors and titles of books are appendixed.
