Library: Central Library & Yonsei-Samsung Library
The Yonsei University Library was founded in 1915 with the founding of Yonhee College, and was first housed in the YMCA building on Chong-no Street. In April 1924, the Library was moved to the third floor of the Yonhee Student Union Building, then to the Gwangbok building in June 1956, and then to the Yongjae building in November 1957. On March 30, 1979 the new library building (now Yonsei Central Library) was completed and it was used as the main library of Yonsei University until 2008.
In 2007, the Yonsei University Library became the first in Korea to successfully embark on the Subject Librarian Services system. The Library is equipped with a high-tech IT environment as well as strengthened digital content management system. With the opening of the Yonsei-Samsung Library in 2008, the Library changed its name from the "Central Library" to "Yonsei University Library". Yonsei University Library reorganized the structure of departments and added two more divisions and four more sections so that it can integrate and manage these two libraries more effectively. The opening of the Yonsei-Samsung Library and the new library system will make the Yonsei University Library a future-oriented high-tech academic information center.
The Library’s collections include more than 1.8 million printed works and 16,000 serials. A variety of electronic resources, including 200 academic databases, 53,000 e-journals, and 42,000 e-books can be accessed both on and off campus. The Yonsei University Library has been the center of Yonsei University’s growth, where a variety of academic information is developed, obtained, and preserved so that it can strongly support the education, research and learning activities of all Yonsei University members. With all these achievements, the Library is developing into a leading academic information resource center of the 21st century and is playing a crucial role in making Yonsei University one of the best international research-based universities with the vision of Yonsei 2020.
