Korea: Resources and Research in the Queens College Libraries
December 6, 2016 - June 30, 2017
The Korean peninsula is a relatively small but powerful land surrounded on three sides by water. Despite being known as the “Land of the Morning Calm,” it has endured turbulent times for much of its history, but has emerged as a country steeped in rich traditions and culture. The essence of Korean culture is based on Confucian notions of harmony and order, and the beauty of its art and architecture lies in its simplicity and an extraordinary feeling of synchronization with nature. Korea of today is a nation in which traditional beliefs stand alongside a contemporary outlook making for a rich mosaic in both land and culture. This exhibition in the Barham Rotunda of the Benjamin S. Rosenthal Library will sample print and electronic materials in a variety of formats that document the culture, peoples, history, and arts of Korea in the Queens College libraries.
