The IRRT Webinar Ad Hoc Committee is excited to present the second of two webinars aimed to promote interests, programs, and activities on international librarianship. In this webinar, we will highlight a unique international library internship partnership between the Korea Foundation, a South Korean based organization with several global offices, and two participating host university libraries in the United States in the form of the Korea Foundation Library Internship Program.

Our speakers, Minjeong Kim, Director of the Korea Foundation Global Office in Washington, D.C., Yunah Sung, Korean Studies Librarian/Head of Technical Services at the University of Michigan-Asia Library, and Ellie Kim, Korean Studies Librarian at the University of Hawaii at Manoa will talk about the library internship program and their partnership. We will also have the pleasure of hearing from the two Korea Foundation Library Interns from these host university libraries as they share their experience interning abroad.
