Korean Studies: *Events*

A comprehensive guide for users of all aspects of Korean studies.



The Asian Studies Research Collection (ASRC)'s name was changed to the Asian Collections (AC) in early 2016.
The Asian Collections are located at the Matheson Library, Clayton, within the Special collections area of Level 1.

Staff will be available to assist library users during this period and retrieve some items that are needed. Please ask at the Information Point for assistance.

The Asian Collections display is not available during the Matheson Library refurbishment.
