NCC would like to announce our decision to put a temporary hold on nominations for the Digital Resources Committee.
The current Digital Resources Committee (DRC) is a database and digital scholarship liaison and support group for North American libraries and their users. The DRC works to facilitate better digital and electronic access to Japanese information, and wider utilization of digital tools and electronic resources in traditional and digital scholarship on Japan.

Until a new Digital Resources Committee is officially appointed, we encourage individuals to share their questions or concerns via JpnLibLiaisons listserv or contact the NCC Chair, Fabiano Rocha <firstname.lastname@example.org>, who will also consult with the Advisory Group.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Tara, NCC Executive Director
