News from the Korean Collection

We received three books from 김 유진 (or Eugene Kim), this year's IWP writer from South Korea. They are now available in the East Asian Collection. 


We received the Korea Foundation's Support for Korean Studies e-Resources program grant. We will keep our subscriptions to Nurimedia databases (DBpia and KRpia) and e-Korean Studies.

UI Korean Collection

The Korean collection at the University of Iowa is a part of the East Asian Collection and intershelved with Chinese and Japanese materials on the 2nd floor of the Main Library.

Thanks to the valiant efforts of Professor Jae-on Kim during his directorship (1994-2000) of the Center for Asian and Pacific Studies (CAPS), and with the Daewoo Foundation's support, the University of Iowa has received Korean books in the social sciences and humanities, which have established a solid foundation for today's Korean Collection. We are currently receiving support from the Korea Foundation and Literature Translation Institute of Korea to keep building our Korean Collection.

The western language materials on Korea are shelved as follows according to call number:

  • Books with call numbers A through D -- 5th floor
  • Books with call numbers E through PS3515 -- 4th floor
  • Journals, Current and Bound Issues -- 3rd floor
  • Books with call numbers PS3517 through Z -- 2nd floor

The Media Services is located on the south side of the 1st floor.
