Hyokyoung Yi

Interim Director, Tateuchi East Asia Library / Korea Studies Librarian


Hyokyoung Yi is the University of Washington’s Korea Studies Librarian.  She not only maintains our extensive Korea-related collection, much of which is written in Korean, but conducts an annual exploration during which she scours the globe for new material, from the newest works of literature coming out of South Korea to extremely hard to find publications from the North. Hyokyoung received the 2019 Distinguished Librarian Award for her dedication to the University and Korean Studies.
