We need your help! The National Library of Australia decided drastically to reduce its users' access to material on Asia and the wider world, by terminating collecting of material published outside Australia on Japan, Korea (North and South) and Mainland Southeast Asia and potentially also slashing collecting of material on China, Indonesia and the Pacific.

The National Diet Library, Japan, is offering a workshop for Japanese Studies Librarians and Researchers held in March 2020 at Tokyo.
This workshop is for librarians, mainly subject librarians, or researchers outside Japan who are expected to engage in reference services or research on Japanese rare materials. The program aims to foster understanding of the rare materials collections owned by the NDL and other research institutions, and to improve skills in utilizing both physical materials and digital content.

Patrons at libraries subscribing to this service will be able to search and browse digitized versions of the more than two million books, periodicals, rare books and old materials that comprise the NDL Digital Collections, including about half a million materials which are also available on the website.
