Welcome to the Center for Korean Studies Library

The Center for Korean Studies maintains a small library and reading room for the convenience of faculty, students, and visitors along with its archives and manuscripts collections. The library supplements the Korean resources in the Asia Collection of Hamilton Library and, with the exception of its archives and manuscripts collections and art and material objects collections, does not hold material not also available in the much larger Asia Collection in Hamilton Library.

The library is located on the second floor of the Center for Korean Studies building at 1881 East-West Road on the University of Hawai‘i Mānoa campus. It is generally open for use during normal working hours, but assistance in using its holdings may vary depending on the availability of the student assistants who maintain the collection.

Most of the library’s collection is stored on closed shelves and will be retrieved by library assistants on request. The library’s holdings do not circulate. The catalog of the library’s book, audio-visual, and microfilm collections can be searched on line at library@ckshawaii.org.
