Korean Studies Librarian & Head, Asia Library Technical Services

About me

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 English and Korean in support of the research and instructional programs on Korean Studies.  

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

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 in 2003, 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

Data Profile

My expertise is on the Korean history, culture and language. I provide research consultations, instruction and collection development with researchers in Humanities & Social Sciences disciplines to support research and teaching in Korean studies. I’m particularly interested in library’s roles in acquiring and disseminating data sets as a part of our collections to support digital scholarship.
