The RAS library is housed in the RAS office.

A catalogue of our collection can be viewed here.

The entire library catalogue as brought up-to-date recently, in MS Excel format [LINK TO EXCEL FILE]

Key to the Catalogue:

Books in the Korean (and other languages) section are listed in green (although many art texts in Korean are still in the general library)
Books in the Oversize section are listed in blue.
Books in the Rare Books section are listed in red.

Books highlighted in grey are being considered for removal as they have little connection to Korea.

The catalogue follows the Library of Congress system

A general explanation of LC call numbers can also be found here.

A large number of the RAS Library’s books cover the areas of Korean Religion, History and Literature. Books in those areas are also listed in separate files (which have not been updated since 2013).
