The mission of NCC’s Outreach Working Group is to support faculty researchers and independent scholars of Japan, particularly those who are affiliated with small institutions or are otherwise without access to comprehensive Japanese library resources. We work to facilitate connections between these researchers and needed resources with partners in North America and Japan.
In June 2019, we conducted a survey (Outreach Working Group Survey Results) in order to hear your thoughts on how we can best support you. This Outreach Working Group Libguide has been created in response to the survey. It includes online resources that are either free and publicly accessible, or those that offer individual subscription options.
