The NCC works to expand and improve access to library resources and information about Japan, through collaboration with institutions and organizations in North America, Japan, and elsewhere. NCC coordinates projects to cooperatively develop Japanese collections and articulate the information needs of librarians, scholars, and others.
Announcing Our 2021 NCC-CDDP Award Winners!
This month, NCC is highlighting the grand prize winners of our first Comprehensive Digitization and Discoverability awards: Dylan Siegel (MA, Yale) and Rebecca Corbett (Japanese Studies Librarian, University of Southern California). The Grand Prize for Best Overall went to Dylan Siegel for his project "Digital Mapping and Presentation Tools: Fragments of the Incendiary Bombing of Japan" The Grand Prize for Most Collaborative went to Rebecca Corbett (University of Southern California), "Unpinning History: A Digital Exhibit from USC Libraries".
The award winning videos have now been added to the CDDP Video Series, which aims to enable more robust use of digitized Japanese materials by scholars worldwide; promote collaboration nationally and internationally; foster training in developing digitization projects; and help build an international infrastructure for digitized Japan materials.
The CDDP awards were made possible by a generous grant from the Toshiba International Foundation (TIFO).
