About the library:
Established in 1948 by Richard C. Rudolph, then-chair of the Department of Oriental Languages (now known as the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures), the East Asian Library serves the UCLA community, and the University of California community at large, in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean studies.
For questions about use and access to the Japanese collections please contact Tomoko Bialock via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The University of California Los Angeles offers access to hundreds of databases, six of which are listed under their Japanese Studies subject heading. These six databases can be found here. Most of the databases accessible from the UCLA website are subscription-based, and therefore require users to be either on-campus or to connect through the UCLA proxy server or VPN client.
Collection size: as of July 2011
The Richard C. Rudolph East Asian Library's Japanese collection focuses mostly on fine arts, religion (in particular Japanese Buddhism), history, literature, local histories, folklore, and pre-war or immediately postwar periodicals.
