Searching Korean Materials

Most North American Libraries follow the Library of Congress romanization rules for Korean materials, which is based on the McCune-Reischauer system. There are several other major romanization rules, including the Revised Romanization of Korea and the Yale system. Romanization is the best to get comprehensive search results. When searching, you can omit any diacritics (i.e. breve, apostrophe, etc.).
