ABSTRACT

This study discusses the needs and demands of researchers regarding Korean Studies resources in Australia. Research was conducted through surveys and interviews on Korean Studies researchers' research areas, ways of acquiring research resources, preferred resource format types and use of services provided by academic libraries in Australia. Accessibility was the main issue that the researchers were concerned with and the methods to facilitate easy access to Korean Studies resources at academic libraries were raised, such as the necessity for a subject librarian in Korean Studies. In addition, the study findings will help Korean Studies researchers as well as librarians at universities without Korean Studies collections to understand the current research trends in Korean Studies in Australia.
