The Library will continue to subscribe to vital electronic databases for Korean Studies thanks to a generous e-resources grant from the Korea Foundation.

The $5,000 USD grant will allow for the Library to continue to offer UBC Library users access to the following electronic databases:

DBpia (Korean Database)
This database covers over 2 million full-text articles from more than 2,000 scholarly journals covering subject areas such as Business, Economics, Humanities and Sociology, Linguistics, Education and Religions.

KISS (Koreanstudies Information Service System)
This database provides full text access from over 3,285 journal/thesis titles and access to the Choson Ilbo Archive (newspaper articles since 1920). It covers subject areas such as Korean language and literature, History, Education, Law, Medical and Engineering.

KRpia (Korean Database)
This is a full text database for Korean Studies covering history, literature, dictionaries and traditional medicines.
