Comprehensive Digitization and Discoverability Program: CDDP Video Series

The challenges and obstacles created by the COVID-19 pandemic have accentuated the importance of digital materials that are easily discovered and used. In 2020, in the midst of this unprecedented crisis, the CDDP Taskforce has initiated the CDDP Video Series with funding support from the Toshiba International Foundation (TIFO), hoping to assist scholars and librarians in Japanese Studies to engage with digital scholarship. The CDDP Video Series offers instructional videos on freely available resources and cutting-edge projects related to Japanese Studies, highlighting useful tools and best practices.

Please give feedback on the CDDP Video Series here.
