Now more than ever, we find ourselves reliant on eBooks and online databases to pursue our work as researchers, students and scholars. The Ohio State University Libraries offers an abundance of e-resources, but sometimes the sheer volume can feel overwhelming. Where does one start when looking for Japanese eBooks, streaming media sites, online Tadoku (extensive reading) materials or contemporary and archival newspaper databases? In this hands-on workshop, Japanese Studies Librarian Ann Marie Davis will demonstrate how to access such materials -- from Japanese eBooks (on new platforms like KinoDen), to major databases like Japan Knowledge (the largest corpus of reference resource materials in Japan) and JKBooks (a specialized eBook platform with volumes of primary sources and antique texts). In addition, she will discuss National Diet Library digital collections, indexes to Japanese language articles and much more. Come with questions to this interactive workshop about e-Resources available through University Libraries and beyond!
NOTE: This workshop will be tailored to the research and teaching needs of Ohio State students, faculty and staff. It will emphasize subscription-based databases that require active Ohio State credentials (name.#) to log on.
