Users of UBC Library can now access one of the largest library collections in Korea, thanks to an agreement with that country’s National Assembly Library (NAL).

The NAL, located in Seoul, is one of Korea’s two national depository libraries. The agreement with UBC Library marks the first time that the two organizations have agreed to collaborate.

The deal means that UBC users will be able to access more than 119 million full-text pages from books, journals, theses, newspapers and more. Printing of these materials is allowed, as long as NAL is the copyright or license holder. Users wanting to access databases can do so with workstations at UBC’s Asian Library.

The two organizations will discuss options for additional exchanges of materials and employees. For more information, please contact Helen Kim, Korean Reference Librarian, at
