CDDP Video Series Highlight: Digital Exhibitions with Cultural Japan: Self Museum

by Paula Curtis on 2021-10-06T19:23:55-04:00 | Comments

In response to the challenges and obstacles created by the COVID-19 pandemic and the increasing importance of digital tools for access to Japanese material, NCC’s Comprehensive Digitization and Discoverability Program Task Force (CDDP) is collaborating with institutions and scholars to release a video series highlighting digital resources for teaching, learning, and research. Created with funding support from Toshiba International Foundation (TIFO), 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. If you are interested in submitting a video to the series, please contact CDDP via our form. To view the full list of videos presently available, click here.

How can faculty and students make the best use of online technologies to showcase digitized materials on Japan? With so many amazing resources being made available online, virtual exhibition is an exciting new possibility.

If this sounds intriguing to you, you may want to explore the video for our Comprehensive Digitization and Discoverability Program video series by Satoru Nakamura (University of Tokyo). He has prepared a video introducing the Self Museum, a medium for showcasing online materials. Created as part of the Cultural Japan project primarily by Takeshi Abekawa (National Institute of Informatics), this platform allows the display of digital resources published in IIIF format from around the world in a 3D exhibition space. Curate your own virtual exhibit and invite friends to tour your gallery!
