The Japanese collection previously held at the Oriental Institute Library has now moved to the Bodleian Japanese Library.

The Bodleian Japanese Library is now the main library for any student of Japanese Studies. It's rich collection covers the whole field, comprising western works relating to traditional Japan, except art and archaeology; a selection of historical and literary texts in Japanese relevant to the courses offered; a reference section of works (in all languages) concerned with these areas and a loan collection on modern Japan. For further information please contact japanese@bodleian.ox.ac.uk

The card catalogues have been superseded by SOLO and by the allegro Japanese catalogue. Allegro is searchable both in original script and in transliteration.
