The University of California at San Diego Library is delighted to announce the successful recruitment of Ms. Hyo Jin Moon as the new subject librarian for Korean and Japanese Studies.

Jin started with the UC San Diego Library on Monday 4/20. She comes to us from Kosin University in South Korea, where she taught English literature. Jin brings with her Korean-language fluency, study of Japanese language, culture and history as well multi-faceted library experiences.

Jin completed Archives and Records Management at the University of Michigan’s School of Information. Over the years, she held a number of interesting positions in special collections and media libraries. As a student assistant at the University of Michigan’s Law Library, she was exposed to academic library collection development and was closely involved with the processing of a large film and video collection in their Special Collections. As a library intern, she provided media research, processing, metadata analysis and fact-checking at the CNN Washington branch.

With a BA in Journalism and Media Studies, Jin has always been fascinated by Asian films.She attended the Busan International Film Festival and learned more about contemporary Korean cinema. At Rutgers University, she founded the Anime and Japanese Environmental Society where students who loved anime could come together to learn and share. Under her leadership, the organization held study groups and lectures on Japanese tea ceremony, bonsai, Zen gardens, and calligraphy.

Jin can be reached at jinmoon at ucsd.edu.
