ABSTRACT

This study focused on the 'Special Korean Collection' at the University of Hawaii's Hamilton Library, to examine the actual construction of Korean academic materials. The collection includes rare books by Marshall Pihl and Korean academic materials collected by ‘the Korea Center’. And the following points were reviewed. First, what is the actual status of Korean academic data? Second, what is the field of study and what is the value of the material? Furthermore, this research sought to shed light on the Korean studies of early Korean emigrants. This includes not only the Americas but also Northeast Asia, Russia and Central Asia. There is a lack of comprehensive review of these materials at present. As a result, despite they are important research material, it is assumed that researchers have failed to grasp the academic, literary, cultural and artistic data of contemporary Korean emigrants. So the study also provided an understanding and future direction of the Korean collection.
