NAVER News Library

The NAVER News Library provides a Korean digital newspaper archive for articles published between 1920 and 1999 from four major Korean newspapers:

  • Tonga ilbo 東亞日報 (also called Dong-A ilbo) : 1920-1999
  • Kyŏnghyang sinmun 京鄕新聞 (also called Kyunghyang Shinmun) : 1946-1999
  • Maeil kyŏngje sinmun 每日經濟新聞 (also called Maeil Business Newspaper) : 1966-1999
  • Han’gyŏre 한겨레 (also called The Hankyoreh) : 1988-1999

This is a Korean language database.  It doesn't have an English interface. All the articles have been OCRed so they are easier to read and can be put through online translators or text-to-speech. Readings for characters are provided for pre-war text.
