A piece of Korea now at NU

This laptop is called “GRAM”, because it weighs less than a kilogram, and this is one of the lightest laptops in the world. The Korea Foundation has generously donated 20 LG GRAM notebooks for NU Library’s Korean Corner.

In addition to these computers, the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to the Republic of Kazakhstan presented 450 books as a gift to serve as the foundation of NU library’s resources on Korean language and culture. Mrs. Kadisha Dairova, NU Vice President for Student Affairs and International Cooperation together with Mr. Kim Desik, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to the Republic of Kazakhstan, cut the ceremonial ribbon. NU Vice President Kadisha Dairova noted in her speech that the people of Korea and Kazakhstan have many cultural ties, including but not limited to the appreciation of Korean pop music by Kazakhstani youth and the popularity of Korean medical services among Kazakhstanis. With the opening of the Korean Corner, NU now has a small piece of Korea available to visitors of our campus.

The Korean Corner is open to the university community, and is located in the Culture Room of the NU Library (Block 5, 3rd Floor).
