The Library has over 8,000 Japan-related items in English and over 20,000 in Japanese. It receives some 200 Japan-related journals in English and 150 in Japanese. The average expenditure on Japan-related resources since 1993 remains about £10,000 per year. Western language material is catalogued in the University Library's STAR catalogue and is searchable at http://library.shef.ac.uk/. Japanese language resources are catalogued within the NACSIS database and are searchable in Japanese at http://webcat.nii.ac.jp/webcat_eng.html, and are also searchable in romanised format via the NACSIS UK Union Catalogue at http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/cgi-bin/japanese-keyword-search.

Romanised records will shortly be added to the STAR catalogue. The Library works closely with Corporate Information and Computing Services in the provision of appropriate, high-quality networked I.T. facilities throughout the University. Access to international library catalogues and databases and email facilities are especially useful. The Library is an active participating member in the NACSIS UK Union Catalogue project (see Japan Library Group section) and maintains close links with other major East Asian studies collections in the UK and world-wide.
