The UW Libraries is committed to providing convenient and timely access to collections and information resources that are outstanding with respect to their quality, depth, diversity, format and currency to support the research and teaching missions of the University of Washington.
The Library's Korean Studies collection primarily supports the teaching and research of the University of Washington's Korean Programs at the Jackson School of International Studies and the Department of Asian Studies and Languages. The Library selects various resources on Korea mainly in the humanities and social sciences. The Korean Studies Research Guide will help you to begin using the materials (books, articles, electronic databases, newspapers, films, and etc.) in the UW Libraries collection.
