- This paper is written for the purpose of checking the status of The list of Government official(先生案). Accordingly, I will conduct a status review from Kyujanggak(奎章閣), which has the largest collection of The list of Government official, and review the data values.
Chapter 2 presented 80 types of The list of Government official in Kyujanggak and identified the character of each data. As a result, Kyujanggak confirmed the character of the institution that owns the largest number of the only data and most of the organization that owns The list of Government official for central government officials.
Chapter 3 describes the contents and characteristics of the list of Government official. The list of Government official contains personal information, family information, Chulsin(出身; its mean pass the state examination) information, and government office information. These information provided an urgent need to establish a database of government officials during the Joseon Dynasty.
Chapter 4 presented the data value of the Kyujanggak collection. First, Kyujanggak has more the list of Government official than any other institution and was mostly the only data. Most of the list of Government official also had very high data credibility.
Second, building the list of Government official at Kyujanggak as a database could bring the total number of new officials to 46,000. This, along with the already established database, will greatly contribute to the building of human networks in the Joseon era. It can also lead to expansion of social and person research during the Joseon Dynasty.
Third, the list of Government official, housed in Kyujanggak, can, among other things, be used as a key source of research for the central government office during the Joseon Dynasty. The list of Government official of Kyujanggak can establish a network of central government officials more than any data. Through this, it can be used as empirical data to understand the power relationship between the central political system and numerous officials during the Joseon Dynasty.
