Bibliographical Works
When cataloging of the old books had been completed, a bibliographic work project for the Korean books in the Kyujanggak collections was initiated in 1973. The items for bibliographical descriptions drew mainly from the General Catalogue of Korean Books of the Kyujanggak (1965) as well as some of the Korean books listed in the General Catalogue of Chinese Books of the Kyujanggak (1972). The results of this project was published in the following work.

Kyujanggak Han-gukbon Doseo Haeje 奎章閣韓國本圖書解題
(Bibliography of Korean Books of the Kyujanggak), 1978-1987, 8 volumes.
In these volumes, each annotated bibliographic entry includes the author's name, background of the work, abstract, and evaluation. A total of 13,362 books are covered in this bibliography. Of the eight volumes, one volume is devoted for the books belonging to, in the traditional method of classification, the divisions of Confucian classics and of the miscellanies (907 entries); two volumes, for those of the division of collected works (1,595 entries); and four volumes, for those of the division of histories (10,850 entries). The additional volume contains indexes.

Kyujanggak Han-gukbon Doseo Haeje Sokjip 奎章閣韓國本圖書解題續集
(Bibliography of Korean Books of the Kyujanggak, Supplement), 1994-, 6 volumes.
In 1993, with financial support from the Ministry of Education, the Kyujanggak embarked on a ten year project to bibliograph those Korean books which were omitted from the Bibliography of Korean Books of the Kyujanggak (1978-1987). This project aims to bibliograph a total of around 8,700 titles, including 1,300 titles belonging to the division of Confucian classics, 2,000 of the collected works, and 5,400 of the histories. In 1994, the first volume, Books of Division of Histories 1 was published, and to date five volumes have been published. The project is expected to be completed by 2003, when it will total ten volumes: two volumes for the books of the division of Confucian classics and miscellanies, two volumes for collected works, and six volumes for histories. When this project is completed, all of the Korean books in the Kyujanggak collections will be bibliographed.

Kyujanggak Sojang Munjip Haeseol 奎章閣所藏文集解說
(Annotated Bibliography of Collected Works of the Kyujanggak, 1995-, 5 volumes.
In 1993, with financial support from the Ministry of Education, the Kyujanggak launched a ten year project to collect materials on Korean intellectual history. The goal of the project was to create an annotated bibliography, which would included detailed information on the content articles of the collected works of individual writings, or munjip 文集, found in the Kyujanggak collections. About 2,000 collected works of individual writings were selected as the target of this project. The annotated bibliographies of these works were arranged, and were to be published, by chronological order. Since the first volume, containing a part the bibliographies of the works of 15th-16th centuries appeared in 1995, four volumes have been published to date. When this project is completed, indexes will be published in a separate volume.
