Journal Entry: 6/2/2009
We took a train to Daegu to visit Kyungbuk and Kiemyung Universities. Little did I know that this city is notorious for being really hot. It is the basin of the surrounding mountains and I did not dress for hot weather.
We sat in on a class where the students prepared two presentations in English for us. The first one was related to the Government Information use and the laws pertaining to it. Korea protects the citizens personal information as required by law. The government helps citizens update their own personal records. National Archive of Korea (NAK) and National Archives and Records Administrations (NARA).
The second presentation referred to copyrights. Then we were treated to lunch and dinner by some students and professors. All the students were in the Library and Information Science majors; undergraduate and graduate.
In 2009 I traveled to South Korea to study abroad. I kept a diary of each day of my visit. When I returned to the United States, I created these digitized posts of my entries and the images that I took on each corresponding day. You can find all the South Korea journal entries here.
