University of Washington East Asia Studies Library
A nucleus Korean language collection was formed during the Second World War years as an outgrowth of the U.S. Army Specialized Training Program for Korean language instruction. Built on that foundation, the collection has since become the second largest among universities in North America running parallel with the very active Korean program at University of Washington, which boasts one of the oldest programs in the States.
