3 Summary of Resources In broad terms, resources for Korean Studies can divided into the following categories: A. Print (=hardcopy) Print B. Subscription Electronic resources Subscription Electronic resourcesSubscription Electronic resources C. Audiovisual Material Audiovisual MaterialAudiovisual Material D. Online (free) resources Online (free) resourcesOnline (free) resources Start Start Start

4 A.Print Resources By print resources is meant primarily monographs (books) and serials (journals). As of June 2007 these consisted of approximately: Monographs : 34,000 titles and 43,000 volumes Serials : 1200 titles and 9200 volumes Start Start Start

5 The single gateway to all these titles is the Hawaii Voyager Catalog: Voyager Start StartStart

6 Voyager As the University of Hawaii online electronic catalog, Voyager includes titles held by all libraries of the University of Hawaii system, not only Hamilton Library at UH Manoa. Start StartStart

7 Voyager A full tutorial on using Voyager can be found here. here However, there are likely some questions you have regarding Voyager and Korean titles in particular… Start StartStart

8 Q: Can I search Voyager by typing in 한글 ? A: Yes, but with serious limitations. Let me explain. Only since 2001 has the Voyager electronic catalog supported CJK characters. So, the title you are looking for should have been added (not necessarily published) after that date or else the CJK characters will not appear in the record (and thus will not come up in any search). Only since 2001 has the Voyager electronic catalog supported CJK characters. So, the title you are looking for should have been added (not necessarily published) after that date or else the CJK characters will not appear in the record (and thus will not come up in any search). Second, there is a special location in the electronic record for the cataloger to input CJK characters. This location is NOT the title or author field but its own separate field. This means that if you are searching by typing in CJK characters you should be doing a KEYWORD search and not a search by author, title, etc. Second, there is a special location in the electronic record for the cataloger to input CJK characters.

This means that if you are searching by typing in CJK characters you should be doing a KEYWORD search and not a search by author, title, etc. Third, the way the 한글 is entered in the Voyager record is with the same spacing rules that govern the writing of Korean. In other words, you have to leave spaces between words just as you would writing Korean.

10 Q: If the use of 한글 is limited, then how do I search for Korean titles or authors? use of 한글 use of 한글 A: You must use the McCune-Reischauer system for Romanizing Korean. It is not too difficult a system to master and will be necessary for searching Korean language titles or authors. An explanation of the system can be found HERE. HERE Note: in Voyager you will not have to worry about typing diacriticals or apostrophes. For instance, Han’gŭl may be typed Hangul. Han’gŭl may be typed Hangul. Start Start Start

11 Q: What is the difference between “East” and “Asia” in the call number? A: “East” designates titles whose primary language is Chinese, Japanese, or Korean. “Asia” designates titles in all other languages whose subject area is Asia. In Hamilton Library all East books are on the 3rd floor while Asia books are split between the 3rd and 4th floors. The exceptions are titles designated as Reference, Closed Shelves, or Folio (oversized). Start Start Start

12 Q: What if the location of a title is given as Reference, Folio, Closed Shelves, or Special Collections? A: All reference titles are together on the 4 th floor, regardless of whether they are East or Asia. Likewise, all folio titles are together in a specially designated area on the 2 nd floor. Books designated Closed Shelves are not open for public browsing but may be requested at the Circulation Desk. All Special Collection works are in Special Collections on the 5 th floor. Start StartStart

13 Q: Why are there multiple call numbers for the same title? A: Every edition of a book (we usually call them monographs in the business), has to have its own record in Voyager. There are basically two reasons why one record would have several call numbers: 1. We have various copies of the same edition. 2. The same edition of that title is held by different libraries in the UH library system. Start StartStart

14 Q: How do I know where to physically find a title? A: Look at the location designator and call number at the bottom of the record (there may be several, one for each copy of that edition). The first thing to note is what library it’s in. Second, is its location given as Reference, Closed Shelves, or Folio? Finally, look at the call number itself... Reference, Closed Shelves, or FolioReference, Closed Shelves, or Folio Start StartStart

15 This title, for instance, is located in UH Manoa’s Hamilton Library. Further, it is in the Asia (not East) collection. The call number on its spine is DS Y Start StartStart

16 Now let’s say you are looking for a title in print format and UH does not have it (it doesn’t show up in a Voyager search). A good place to turn is OCLC’s WorldCat. WorldCat Start StartStart

17 WorldCatWorldCat (OCLC) WorldCat Start StartStart

18 WorldCat, cont. WorldCat is short for World Catalog. It is a database that contains the electronic records of titles held by several thousands of libraries worldwide. For any given record, it will tell you whether UH owns that title, and if not it will provide a quick link for requesting it Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Start StartStart

19 This record from WorldCat tells you that 8 libraries own this work. The link “Request via ILL” will take you directly to the ILL form at Hamilton Library. All you will have to do is fill in your name and ID #. Start Start Start

20 Caution: WorldCat works like this…every time a member library, such as Hamilton, catalogs a new title it provides that information to WorldCat so that WorldCat knows we own that title. However, for titles in the UH collection that predate our participation in WorldCat (i.e., titles added before about 1995), these will not show up in WorldCat as being owned by UH, though in fact we do have a copy. Bottom Line: first try the UH Voyager catalog, then go to WorldCat. Start StartStart

21 3. Korean National Digital Library ( 국가전자도서관 ) Korean National Digital LibraryKorean National Digital Library This is a “virtual library”, kind of like a Korean WorldCat, that combines the catalogs of the following Korean libraries: National Central Library of Korea ( 국립중앙도서 ) National Central Library of Korea ( 국립중앙도서 ) National Assembly Library ( 국회도서관 ) National Assembly Library ( 국회도서관 ) National Law Library ( 법원도서관 ) National Law Library ( 법원도서관 ) Science Library of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology Science Library of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology ( 한국과학기술원 과학도서관 ) ( 한국과학기술원 과학도서관 ) Korea Institute of Science and Technology Korea Institute of Science and Technology ( 한국과학기술정보연구원 ) ( 한국과학기술정보연구원 ) Korea Education and Research Information Service Korea Education and Research Information Service ( 한국교육학술정보원 ) ( 한국교육학술정보원 ) Agricultural Science Library of the Korea Development Administration Agricultural Science Library of the Korea Development Administration ( 농촌진흥청 농업과학도서관 ) ( 농촌진흥청 농업과학도서관 ) Start StartStart

28 What is an E-book? At its most basic level, an e-book is any book-length text that is stored, accessed, and read in electronic format. Thus, all of the following may be considered varieties of e-books: 1. The complete text of a book that has been typed into an electronic document format (such as Wordpad). 2. The scanning and conversion of an entire book into PDF format. 3. A book converted full-text to some other electronic format that requires special software to access and read. 4. A book that was from its inception only in electronic format. One obvious advantage to the e-book, besides storage, is that it often (though not always) provides an easy way to search its full-text. This can be especially valuable to researchers. Start StartStart

29 E-books in Korean Studies For Korean studies, as any other area, there are two basic categories for e-books: free (open source) e-books and subscription e-books (available via UH only).
