The National Library of Korea hosted its 2022 Workshop for Overseas Korean Studies Librarians from October 17 to 21, 2022.
This fifteenth iteration of the workshop was held in-person for the first time in three years. It was designed to provide Korean Studies librarians abroad with opportunities to obtain systematic knowledge on Korean materials and share ideas and experiences with their peers. Twenty librarians from six countries (Germany, the US, the UK, Canada, France, and the Philippines) participated in the workshop this year.
Lectures included Korea’s early printing culture and how to distinguish editions of old books; cataloging old books and KORCIS (Korean Old and Rare Collection Information System); and collecting library big data and case studies of big data analysis and use. Participants also gained an opportunity to promote mutual cooperation by sharing awareness of the Korean resources and activities in their libraries.
In line with the workshop, the first annual meeting of domestic and overseas Korean Studies librarian communities was held on October 18. The meeting was attended by the International Network for Korean Studies Librarians (INKSLIB)*, Committee on Korean Materials (CKM), and European Network of Korean Resources Specialists (ENKRS).
“I hope that this workshop provides an opportunity for you to expand your understanding of Korean Studies and obtain new information,” said Acting Chief Executive of the NLK Kim Il-hwan.
* The International Network for Korean Studies Librarians (INKSLIB) is a network of overseas Korean Studies librarians aimed at sharing the latest trends in Korean Studies libraries. The INKSLIB website provides information on the Window on Korea program, workshops, the Cultural Partner program, INKSLIB Webzine, and reference resources.
