Hyokyoung Yi

Korean Studies Librarian


Hyokyoung Yi is the University of Washington’s full-time Korea Studies-specific 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.
