NCC's Online Guide to Research Access in Japanese Museum's Libraries and Archives (MLAs) (日本研究のためのMLAアクセスガイド) was created for scholars and students who wish to conduct research or study in Japanese academic research institutions (MLA).
The first volume of this guide was published on March 11, 2012 in commemoration of the first anniversary of Japan's triple disasters of 3/11, and new editions each containing entries for new 50 institutions and their principal collections are published annually. Additional updates and expansions are added each year.
NCC's MLA Research Access Guides is now being expanded to include the major Japanese collections in museums, libraries and archives worldwide. The first North American edition will be published in 2014.
What else is new?
