List members and valued resources:

I was able to get the following citations from the Bibliography of Asian 
Studies (U. of Michigan) but have been unable to find the journals in the 
libraries in Cleveland, OH, USA.

       Could someone help me with contact information or websites for the 
following Journals?  I would like to be able to copy the articles listed from 
the websites or pay to have them copied for me and mailed to me.

       I am considering doing an MA essay (5,000 words) on the question 
generally of "Why the Koreans can use Hangul exclusively (if this is so) and 
the Japanese cannot dispense with the Kanji in every day publications such as 
newspapers and magazines?" Does it have to do with linguistics, nationalism, 
culture, or a combination of all of these elements?
