Korea University’s research institute to digitalize 2,200 rare Korean documents held at UC Berkeley

More than 2,000 old documents taken from Korea to the U.S. during the Japanese colonial period will return home in digital form. 

Korea University’s Research Institute of Korean Studies announced Thursday that its Center for Rare Materials Abroad finished digitalizing 738 of the 2,200 old Korean documents in the C.V. Starr East Asian Library at the University of California, Berkeley. The rest will be digitalized by the end of this year.
