"National Diet Library Digital Collections" is available in the Library

This service allows Library users to browse digitized materials authorized by the National Diet Library (NDL). The materials are out-of-print items digitized by the NDL, including books, periodicals, and doctoral dissertations previously available only within the NDL premises. In the Library, the service is available at one designated PC set in the reading room. We also provide the printing service for these items upon request.
