The “Human Library” at UOS is in the public spotlight because of its method of operation.

Instead of books, the Human Library is a business that lends out people who are working in various fields. This business was originally started by Ronni Abergel, under the slogan - “stop the violence” in order to remove blame or prejudice that may arise in having serious conversation with other people. One of the strong points of this system is that anyone who wants to talk with and help other people can apply to be a human book. Also, anyone who borrows a human book can talk to them about the knowledge, information, and experience they have.

UOS is making efforts to activate the Human Library system, having made a contract for activating this business on September 17th, 2015. Also, from July 26th to August 18th, the UOS held an event called “Real story of my dream with professors,” which provided a lot of information about various jobs to middle and high school students. UOS President Yun-hi Won evaluated the Human Library positively, saying that “As the UOS is progressing Human Library industry, I think this industry is necessary to many people.” Hyun-chang Lee, one of the officers of the Human Library, said that they are doing their best to encourage local residents to participate in the business as well. Many people who used this system satisfied at this business. Lee thinks the biggest advantage of this system is that anyone can be a human book and help other people even though human books do not have professionalism.

Students and local residents who want to use the Human Library system can borrow human books from 9 A.M. to 6 P.M. on weekdays. Application for borrowing human books is available at the online homepage of Seoul Human Library. People who borrow human books can talk with them in cafes, restaurants, or lounges at UOS.
