 Korea Related Newspapers - Alphabetical List


This is a comprehensive list of Korea-related newspapers held at the Universtiy of Hawaii at Manoa Hamilton Library.

For the purposes of this list, a Korean newspaper is defined as a serial publication that is "event driven", that is, a publication meant primarily to convey news and commentary on events of local, national, or international scope, and which was or is published in Korea, by Koreans, or about events in Korea or concerning Koreans, regardless of the paper's frequency, or duration or place of publication.

The list is organized alphabetically by the romanized title (in the case of Korean or Japanese language papers), or by its English title (in the case of English language papers). In cases where a publication has multiple or changing titles, cross-referencing is used.

This list does not include free online access newspapers. For links to these, see the "News" section on the Internet Resources page.

For any questions or comments on this list or our holdings please contact the Korea Specialist Librarian.
