Member of Korean Collections Consortium of North America

The 14-member Korean Collections Consortium of North America, a cooperative collection development program sponsored by the Korea Foundation for the purpose of sharing resources, supports Korean studies teaching and research programs in North America by providing library services to optimize access and use of the Korean studies collections developed through the Consortium. The Consortium materials are loaned free of charge to any Korean studies scholar or student anywhere in North America.

In 1997, the University of Toronto was the first institution in Canada to join the Consortium. As a member of the Consortium, we are responsible for acquiring materials on the following areas:

  • Anthropology
  • Local and regional government
  • Military science and history
  • Modern literature
  • Modern philosophy
  • Socialism and communism
  • Publications on Koreans in Canada as a whole
  • Publications on Korea and Koreans published in Eastern Canada (Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island)
