The bibliographies complied in Chosun Dynasty includes four categories: imperial bibliography, regional bibliography, private bibliography, and bibliography in official history, which reflect different perspectives of book and cultural exchanges in East Asiain premodern period. For example, we can have overall survey of collections in the imperial library of Chosun Dynasty, and how Chosun literatibrought books from China step by step, and the book exchanges among Korea, Japan and Vietnam at that time. Regional bibliography consists of the bibliography of printing blocks preserved in provincial governments and bibliographies of local schools, academia, and temples. The bibliography of printing blocks can tell us the reprinting of Chinese books in different regions of Korea, which reflects the popularity of Chinese books in local level. The academia in Korea not only has great collections of books, but prints books also, and served the function of distributing books written in Chinese. Though the private bibliography did not has huge collections, it has annotated notes to the book, from which we can see the size of collections, basic cultivation, and intellectual structures of literati family in Chosun Dynasty, furthermore, we can learn the relationship between literati and Chinese Classics from it. Bibliography in official history mainly extracts from documents within and outside Korea, and sets forth the history of book exchanges in East Asian community.
