Information of Korean Studies

Welcome to the Korean Studies Research Guide!

This research guide is designed to introduce to you print and online resources related to Korean studies at the Yale University Library and on the web.

The Yale University Library has a growing collection of Korean materials, which primarily supports teaching and research needs of the faculty and students at Yale. 

  • The Korean collection covers a variety of subjects in the humanities and social sciences, with emphasis on history, archaeology and art history, literature and Buddhism.
  • The majority of Korean materials in print are shelved in the Sterling Memorial Library and LSF (Library Shelving Facility), an offsite storage which is closed to public. However, reference materials, such as bibliographies, encyclopedias, and dictionaries are shelved in the East Asian Reading Room, which is located on the 2nd floor of Sterling Memorial Library. 
  • A considerable number of Korean videos and DVDs are stored in the Film Study Center (53 Wall Street, Room B17). You can search all of them in Orbis.
