Doheny East Asian Book Stacks

This is one of USC's greatest treasures. In particular, the underground bookstacks have a huge collection of Korean texts, especially from the 20th century. To put it in perspective, USC was founded in 1880 and currently has the Family house of Dr. Dosan Ahn Chang-ho. It's a place that has a lot of contact with Korea and has lived and breathed its history, so a lot of literature has inevitably been preserved.

However, many Koreans don't know or care about this space 😅.
