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

(In the near future, we will be developing an order form with which you may email your request directly.)
  1. Search the JDC bibliographic index database to determine what documents you would like to obtain;
  2. Take note of the document number (e.g., LRS95-11693) together with the first few words of the title;
  3. Supply a postal address, because only paper copies of the documents are available at this time. When appropriate, the JDC can fax the materials;
  4. Submit your request by email, telephone, fax, mail, or in person to:
