About KHU Library

KHU Libraries is a learning enterprise. Libraries' staff advances the University's academic mission


University libraries are often referred to as the heart of a university. The reason is that the library is a center of knowledge that stores the intellectual property created by mankind and is a place where various wisdom is gained to realize the vision of the future. It is also a place to nurture the dreams of individual young people who will lead the future society, and it is the center of education and research.

Today, the world is changing rapidly. I will look back on whether the university library is responding to the rapid changes in the environment. Especially in the 21st century, the internet civilization is demanding radical changes in the role of existing libraries. Access to information has become more diverse, and libraries have become competing as information providers.

Kyunghee University Library will make efforts to enhance the accessibility of library users and activate the functions of the library while accepting the changing social environment.

We will cope with the changing environment of information technology that transcends imagination, and will create value for the library only. Therefore, we want to be the most intimate and familiar space for you as a complex cultural space that meets information, knowledge, education, research, culture, etc.

We hope that you will have the opportunity to acquire knowledge and information for the future and enrich your mind at our Central Library.

Library Director - Kim Han Weon
