Libraries acquire materials through purchases, gifts or exchanges. Because of the cost and unavailability of certain materials, libraries have made use of an exchange program. Participation in an exchange program would be mutually beneficial, expanding resources beyond material normally obtained through purchases or gifts. In addition, this partnership would raise awareness of your law school in Asia. There are five major Korean libraries which are interested in establishing exchange relationships with U.S. academic libraries.
As you may know, Koreaís law schools are colleges of law under general university administration. Unlike U.S. law schools, Koreaís law schools are bachelorís degree programs. Therefore, the acquisition and processing of library materials are conducted by the main university library.
The following Korean libraries have expressed an interest in an exchange program:
