A Guide to Korean Studies

Guides to Korean Studies resources available at WUSTL Libraries and on the World Wide Web.

Off Campus Access

While many resources in this guide are openly available, several research databases and electronic journals and many online library services have access restrictions that require that you be a current Washington University student, faculty member, or staff member. Subscription-based databases, e-books and e-journals are marked with the "key" icon on this guide. See this page for help.

Finding Articles

Internet Explorer is recommended for using the following databases and websites.

If full text of the article is available through the databases, a link to a PDF (or other electronic formats) appears on your search results. If you do not find full-text articles through the databases listed here, follow the steps below to look for print copies or althernate electronic editions. Wash U Libraries's collections may include a print or stand-alone electronic copy of the journal. Please note all Korean-language journal holdings at Wash U libraries are electronic. If the databases listed in the Articles in Korean tab do not provide full text access to the article you need, we may be able to retrieve it through interlibrary loan (ILL). See #3 below.

1. Gather as much information about the article (journal/magazine title, year of publication, volume, number, article title, pages, etc) from the index/databases.

2. Look up the journal/magazine title using the Classic Catalog. (See Find Books page for more tips).

3. If you find the journal at Wash U Libraries, follow the location(s) and call number to locate the physical copy (if print), or use the link provided on the Classic Catalog (if available electronically). Older issues of magazines and journals can be requested and/or checked out like regular books. If the journal is not held at Wash U, you can still request journal/magazine articles through Interlibrary Loan. (Sometimes Google Scholar provides free access to full-text articles as well).
