National Library for the Disabled
SEOUL, REPUBLIC OF KOREA
The National Library for the Disabled was established on the occasion of the enforcement of the revised Library Act in 2012 by expanding the National Center for the Disabled Library, which has been operating since 2007.
In order to ensure that people with disabilities living in the information age have equal opportunities with people without disabilities in daily life, education, employment, social participation, and cultural enjoyment, the ability to access and use knowledge information is paramount. As barriers to physical barriers are broken down so that people with disabilities can use roads and buildings freely, the barriers of information must be removed so that they can access various library materials and knowledge information systems.
The National Library for the Disabled intends to do its best to break down the barriers faced by 2.5 million people with disabilities in Korea.
