(26 May 2021) In late March, the National Library of Korea announced the opening of an immersive experience library named Shilgam Seojae. It looks just like any normal library, but features new digital technologies that offer visitors a whole new reading experience.
A Culture Ministry initiative, the immersive experience library transforms texts by combining it with interactive content using multidimensional technologies, such as virtual and augmented reality.
Two months into operation, Shilgam Seojae, which is part of the national library complex in Seocho-gu, Seoul, is proving to be popular among visitors looking for new ways of searching, sorting and digesting books.
