Kyung Hee University Global Campus Central Library, Korea
People usually say that academic library is a heart of the university. It is because the library is a treasure house of knowledge that human created, and a place of wisdom for the vision of future. And new generation who will lead the future, is sweating for their own dreams.
These days, the world changes really fast and I usually think again about the academic libraries. Are academic libraries adapting themselves to new circumstances? Especially in 21c, Internet civilization asks libraries a radical reform. New information techniques used to predict the end of the printed book and the physical library. But if you see the truth, the publications increase and we can see more libraries than before. The exterior and interior of the libraries building is getting more beautiful and contain more various and richer contents.
Academic library must accept new circumstances and improve accessibility. Academic library must invigorate library's functions and must be a multi-cultural space for information, knowledge and education. I wish you will enjoy the academic library not only the beautiful buildings but also cultural activities.
