Status of Korean collection

The Korean Collections’ strength lies in the humanities and the social sciences with substantial holdings in history, literature, language, philosophy, religion, anthropology and the arts.

Special effort has been undertaken in recent years to strengthen the holding in Korean Christianity, North Korea and Korean women’s studies in order to support the active and rapid growing Korean Studies teaching and research program at the University of Toronto.

As of July 2014, the Library maintains over 65,000 volumes on Korea, including books, serials and audio-visual materials.
