Korean Studies Librarian & Head, Asia Library Technical Services


I am responsible for developing the Korean Collection and providing reference services as related to Korean Studies. I select all types of materials (print, electronic, and visual) in support of the research and instructional programs on Korean Studies, supervise technical services of Korean materials, and create library resources for the Korean Studies Collection.

Also I am in charge of coordinating all acquisitions and cataloging activities for the Library's collections in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.


I joined the Asia Library in March 2003. My educational background is in Japanese Language and Literature (BA, Sungshin Women's University) and in Teaching Korean as a Second Language (MA, Yonsei University). I have received a Master of Library Science from the University of Alabama. 

Prior to coming to Ann Arbor, I worked at the Cleveland Museum of Art in Cleveland, Ohio as Asian Bibliographer. 


I serve on the executive committee of the Nam Center for Korean Studies
