[INKSLIB] Update Korean Studies Libraries in the world


 

Warm greetings from Seoul!


My name is Yoo-kyung Choi, and I am a staff member of the International Cooperation and Public Relations Team at the National Library of Korea who is now in charge of the International Network for Korean Studies Librarians (INKSLIB).
 
The National Library of Korea has been running the INKSLIB website (http://inkslib.nl.go.kr/) since 2009 in order to provide information related to Korean Studies as well as a platform for Korean Studies Librarians to interact with each other.

Just last year, the website has been renewed to strengthen support for the work of Korean Studies librarians overseas and to vitalize the network.


In line with the renewal of the website, we are planning to update the Korean Studies Libraries in the World section to provide more accurate and up-to-date information.

As such, please kindly look over the List of Korean Studies Libraries file attached to this email and inform us by February 5th (Fri) if there needs to be any change or modification.


Korea was recently hit by freezing temperatures amid a warmer than usual winter.

I hope all Korean Studies librarians around the world are doing well, and I wish you a happy and fruitful New Year and luck in all your endeavors.

 
Best regards,

 
Yoo-kyung Choi
International Cooperation and Public Relations Team
The National Library of Korea

안녕하세요.
2016년 새해 인사 드립니다.
'해외 한국학 글로벌 네트워크'를 담당하게 된 국립중앙도서관 국제교류홍보팀 최유경입니다.

 
국립중앙도서관에서는 해외 한국학 사서들에게 한국학 관련 정보를 제공하고 한국학 사서들의 교류의 장을 마련하고자 2009년부터 '해외 한국학 글로벌 네트워크'홈페이지를 운영하고 있습니다.
지난해 2015년에는 해외 한국학 사서들의 업무지원 강화 및 네트워크 활성화를 위해 홈페이지를 새롭게 단장하였습니다.


보다 정확한 정보제공을 위해 홈페이지 내 '세계 한국학실 현황'을 현행화하고자 하오니 붙임의 '세계 한국자료실 현황'을 확인하신 후 추가 및 수정할 사항이 있는 경우 2월 5일(금)까지 회신해 주시기 바랍니다.


한국은 예년 겨울에 비해 유난히 따뜻한 날씨에 이어 기록적인 한파가 몰려왔었습니다.
2016년 새해에도 해외 한국학 사서분들 모두 건강하시고 하시는 모든 일에 행운이 가득하시기를 바랍니다.


감사합니다.

NLK to share information on 220,000 authors and assign ISNIs



Starting February 1st, 2016, overseas users will be able to easily search materials written in Korean by Korean or foreign authors and researchers.


In 2015 the National Library of Korea (Chief Executive Lim Wonsun) signed an agreement with the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC), a worldwide library service organization, and provided a database containing information on 220,000 Korean and foreign authors, including various ways of writing the authors’ names, to be included in the OCLC’s Virtual International Authority File (VIAF).


The database has been integrated with author information from countries around the world and is available starting February.


The National Library of Korea’s participation in the VIAF is expected to lay the foundation for facilitating Korean materials services in overseas libraries and bookstores which had previously had difficulty in handling materials written in Korean.
