As of June 2012, the collection ranks the 19th among all Korean collections in North America, with a holding of over 16,000 volumes of Korean monographs, 100 titles of current Korean periodicals, and more than 800 media resources. The collection is strong in core reference materials of Korean studies, Korean economics and politics, history, literature, language, religion, etc.
