How to Search the JDC Bibliographic Database
The JDC maintains the database to provide access to each document
in the collection. The database includes bibliographic information
as well as English abstracts. The new web-based index file can be
searched by one or more keywords (you may use English or romanized
Japanese). You can also browse the titles of the entire database or
create lists limited to year of publication.
Go to the JDC
database on the World Wide Web (WWW).
How to Request Documents
