UBC Library, Korea’s National Assembly Library to collaborate

Users of the UBC Library can now access one of the largest library collections in Korea, thanks to an agreement with their National Assembly Library (NAL).  NAL, located in Seoul, is one of Korea’s two national depository libraries. 

This first collaboration between the two organizations will allow UBC users to access more than 119 million full-text pages from books, journals, theses, newspapers and more. Printing of these materials is allowed, provided NAL is the copyright or license holder. Users can access databases through workstations at UBC’s Asian Library.  The two organizations will be discussing options for additional exchanges of materials and employees.
