Thank you for visiting
the official website of
The Busan Human Library is a new form of library that aims to help multinational families
become settled, and is a socially innovative project utilizing a digital means,
run by the Ministry of the Interior and Safety and National Information Society Agency.
We truly understand that ever since you came to Busan, especially if after marriage,
you might be facing difficult times due to experiencing a totally new environment.
A new language, a new culture, etc. Perhaps in the winter,
the weather may feel too cold and harsh for you.
In a bid to understand your hardships, we have established a library named
<Busan Human Library>, just to help you become more settled in Korea.
This library is quite different from ordinary ones. In an ordinary library,
you enter the place and borrow books that are inside it.
However, our library is nothing like that. Instead, we provide you with the opportunity to meet Korean professionals that have information and expertise in the field that you need help with. If you are able to meet experts in certain fields that you need help with, you will be able to ask questions and get detailed answers to what you were curious about. Essentially, you will get to know warm-hearted, nice Korean mentors through
Professor Koh Yeong-sam, Tongmyong University’s Head of 4th Industrial Revolution Studies Center
Jung Hong-sub, President of Tongmyong University
Kim Tae-seok, Mayor of Busan Metropolitan City’s Saha-gu
<Busan Human Library> wants to help you get adjusted in Korea, so please don't hesitate to ask for help. Feel free to ask questions on anything.
