Rare Japanese materials cataloged by UK Libraries

A book from the rare Japanese materials collection
Kazuko Hioki, Asian Studies liaison librarian, and Kathryn Lybarger, cataloging and metadata librarian, recently collaborated on the cataloging of a collection of rare Japanese materials purchased for UK Libraries. The collection materials date from 1686 to 1928 and cover a wide variety of topics including: mathematics, travel, and flower arranging. The collection includes books, magazine issues, woodblock prints, and a painting on a scroll. 

The materials are held in the Special Collections Research Center Rare Books area and will be used in Kazuko's JPN 405 course "Introduction to Japanese Publishing Culture" she is teaching this fall.
