What we do?

Academic libraries cooperate with one another to provide research materials for their patrons, which is called Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and/or Document Delivery (DD) service.

We help the helpers with Japanese-language ILL/DD items getting from Japan.

(A researcher MUST contact his/her library for ILL/DD services)

      
     

    Our activities

    We promote Global ILL Framework (GIF), a program for ILL/DD services between OCLC ILL libraries (North American and Australian academic libraries) and Japanese academic libraries, and also introduce ILL/DD from the National Diet Library (NDL) of Japan. We help ILL/DD specialists to locate/borrow Japanese materials from Japan.
