Abstract: Faced by discrimination and the pressure to assimilate, one method of social activism employed by Korean Residents of Japan has been to establish independent libraries. The institutions’ purpose is to preserve, develop and propagate Korean cultural identities, as well as to foster community and positive relations with the Japanese. This paper examines eight libraries established in and around the large urban areas of Tokyo and Osaka-Kobe over the past four decades. It discusses the institutions’ overall goals and collections, as well as their research, publishing, and educational activities. 差別と同化への圧力に直面している在日韓国・朝鮮人は抵抗の方法のひとつとして私設図書館・図書資料室を設立してきまあした。それらの施設の目的はコリアンとしてのアイデンティティを保存、育成、そして普及する場をつくることです。それに加えて、コリアン同士が主義と思想を超えて話し合える場、コリアンと日本人との積極的な関係を育成する場も提供することです。この論文では、東京や阪神でこの40年間設立された8つの図書館・図書資料室を検討します。それらの施設の目標と収集活動とともに、その研究、出版、教育活動にも焦点を当てます。 차별과 동화의 압력에 직면하면서, 재일한국인들에 의해 만들어진 사회행동주의의 한 방법은 독립 도서관을 설립해가는 것이었다. 기관들의 목적은 한국문화 정체성을 보존, 개발, 선전하는데 있으며 또한 커뮤니티와 일본인들과의 긍정적인 관계형성을 발전시키는데 있다. 이 논문은 지난 40년간 대도시 지역인 도쿄와 오사카-고베시 내 또는 근접 지역에 설립된 8개의 도서관을 검토한다. 이 논문은 이 기관들의 종합적인 목적과 장서 그리고 기관들의 연구, 출판, 교육활동에 대해서 논의한다.
