INTRODUCTION
This report analyzes the Borrow Direct libraries collecting, lending and borrowing of titles in the Korean language
and in the subjects of Korean Language, Korean Literature and Korean History. Specifically, the analyses examine
total titles, uniqueness of titles, and number of titles borrowed and lent by each library.

The report uses data from OCLC’s WorldCat Collection Analysis tool, taken from the first quarterly update of
2009, which contains updated data until the end of December 2008. It also uses interlibrary loan data from 2004 to
2008, taken from the Borrow Direct ILL data repository in the DataFarm.

The degree of accuracy of the data on which this report is based, taken from OCLC's WorldCat Collection
Analysis, is problematic to ascertain. The full holdings of every library are not entirely represented in the WorldCat
database, due to various reasons such as licensing restrictions, cataloging backlogs, and unique cataloging schema.
Moreover, OCLC's algorithm used to match institutional records to master records is known to be not wholly
accurate. Therefore, total numbers of titles, especially the numbers of unique and shared titles at each library may
in reality vary from the data found in the report. The report may serve as a guidepost but should be interpreted in
consultation with institutions contributing the records. This report was prepared by Brigitte Burris, Collection &
Content Analyst at the University of Pennsylvania for use by Borrow Direct member institutions.

TOTAL TITLES IN KOREAN
Holdings
The table and chart below depict the total number of titles in Korean that are owned by each of the Borrow
Direct libraries and the percentage of the Borrow Direct libraries’ total combined titles in Korean that each of the
libraries’ holdings constitute.
FOR MORE DETAIL, including a breakdown of each library’s unique titles in Korean into specific conspectus divisions and
by publication date, see the attached spreadsheet’s tabs entitled “titles in Korean by library” and “titles in Korean by
conspectus.” Both tabs present identical data differently, one organized by library, the other by conspectus division.
