- Rare books and manuscripts in private possession run greater risks of becoming damaged or destroyed from causes such as fire and theft. At Jangseogak, we accept donations or deposition of ancient books and manuscripts in private collections for their safety and long-term preservation.
- At Jangseogak, we perform preliminary research on all ancient books and manuscripts donated to us or deposited with us, by classifying them by type and subject matter. Heavily damaged materials are given conservation treatments by the in-house Conservation Science Team.
- Donated or deposited materials are kept in a separate room dedicated to each family school this purpose and specially equipped to provide an optimal environment for long-term preservation of old books and manuscripts. Family records are arranged by family.
- Catalogs of donated or deposited ancient books and manuscripts
Jangseogak publishes detailed catalogs of ancient books and manuscripts that have been donated to it or deposited with it, containing color plates, as reference materials for Korean studies researchers and research organizations.
