The CMC Catalogs: Five Korean Books from Judson University

Published 6/10/2021 10:13 AM CT

The Cataloging Maintenance Center (CMC) was approached by Judson University, a private evangelical Christian liberal arts university in Elgin, Illinois, to catalog five Korean books donated to them by visiting professor, Rev. Dr. Dae Sik Yang. Rev. Dr. Yang wrote all five books which are about various subjects on Christianity. Rev. Dr. Yang is the Senior Pastor of Jinju Sungnam Church in the southeastern part of the Korean peninsula. He is also president of the Jinju Presbytery and Vice-Chair of the Presbyterian General Assembly, the largest Presbyterian missionary organization in South Korea.

One of the books written by Rev. Dr. Dae Sik Yang is The Wisdom of Human Relationships. The cataloger used the Google Translate app on their iPhone, utilizing the camera feature to scan the Korean script to get the English translation and the Korean translation written in Roman letters.
