    Welcome and Introduction

    Welcome to Guides to Korean Studies!  

    Print collections in English on Korea are housed in various campus libraries according to their subjects (Doheny, VKC, Leavey, Grand, Art and Architecture, etc.) 

    Print collections in Korean are housed mostly in the Korean Heritage Library in the East Asian Library. Current journals, newspapers, and reference books are held in the East Asian Library Reading Room on the first floor of Doheny Memorial Library. Most of the Korean print collections are in the East Asian Stacks on Level 1 of Doheny Stacks.  Korean video collections are in the closed stacks in DML 122, which are pageable from the Doheny Circulation Desk.  For our extensive Korean electronic resources, see the ER tab.  The remote Grand Library also holds substantial Korean books and journals (bound journals, large sets, older materials, and non-core subjects).  Most of the books in Grand are pageable via Homer, USC's online catalog (  See the Korean Sets in Grand tab for the titles and tables of contents. 

    The Librarians at the Korean Heritage Library are eager to provide you with personalized service for all your research and teaching needs. If you have any questions, suggestions, or comments about Korean Studies resources or the Korean Heritage Library, please contact Joy Kim, Curator, at or other librarians listed in this guide.
