Bath holds about 1,100 Japan-related books in various languages and it subscribes to the London edition of the Asahi Shimbun newspaper. The majority of the books in Japanese are dictionaries and are bought in Japan by the staff who run the interpreting and translation course; some are kept by them and some are bought by the library. Resources are catalogued on an in-house computerised system. Bath has reciprocal borrowing arrangements for staff and postgraduate researchers at the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England, Bristol . The Internet is used to access database hosts, website pages, e-mail, and as a major information source. In addition, Bath has Japanese satellite television; terminals with access to the Japanese Internet; and PCs with Japanese capability. In addition, a Self-Access Language Centre opened in early 2001. It includes a wide range of multi-media and printed materials. It is fully equipped for listening, viewing videos and DVDs and accessing foreign language radio and TV programmes via satellite. There are a number of multi-media computers with reference and language CD-ROMs as well as magazines, periodicals and audio cassettes.
