Comics on bookshelf.

East Asia Comics Collection

The East Asia Comics Collection embodies the Libraries’ strategic priorities to collect and preserve global voices, and to make accessible materials related to borders and belonging. 

Korean fiction.

Korean Contemporary Fiction

The Penn Libraries actively collects contemporary literature from South Korea for study and enjoyment by international students, language learners, and researchers at Penn: a community that continues to grow as Penn's Korean Studies Program and the newly established James Joo-Jin Center for Korean Studies flourish. Upper-level Korean language classes at Penn, in particular, make use of our fiction collection for their coursework every year. As the Penn Libraries expands the global voices represented in its collections, our coverage of contemporary Korean materials will continue to grow.
