The Central Library had held a special book exhibition with a theme of “Disaster and Healing,” to endure the recent disasters including Sewol ferry tragedy, collision of the subway line number 2, and big fire in Jangseong hospice hospital, and not to forget those who were sacrificed in them. The exhibition, which had opened from May 12th to 30th, especially wished to find the losts left in Sewol ferry disaster that took away the life of Dongguk alumnus, Choi Hye-jung (Department of History Education, 09). The Central Library is also a place vulnerable place because it possesses more than one million books that can be easily burned. However, it has only few fire prevention facilities such as fire shutters. This special exhibition can alarm Donggukians for safety and preparedness against sudden disasters in the Central Library. The exhibition stand is located just in front of the main gate, and all books displayed are able to be checked out immediately. “Mental first aid for disaster and injury,” and “To establish endurable social system in case of tragedy” are the representative books, and about 30 others related to disaster and healing is exhibited. Yun Joo-young, manager of the Central Library Academic Information Service Team, said, “We first opened this special exhibition because this is the most influential action we can do now. This will be continued in memorable days such as Korean War memorial day or democratic movement day.
