Location Information

The Japanese Studies Library is part of the Asian-/African Studies and Islamic Theology Branch Library and comprises a collection of more than 30,000 volumes and 400 periodicals (mainly Japanese) from various scientific fields.

The focus of the library is on Japanese cultural and intellectual history, especially of the pre-modern period. In addition, there are research collections on Japanese film history as well as on Japanese decency culture and annual agenda (completed).

The Japanese Studies Library also includes the library of the Mori Ôgai Memorial with works by and about Mori Ôgai.

The holdings of the Japanese Studies Library are divided between the main library at Johannisstraße 10 (in the building of the Department of Asian and African Studies), the magazines of the University Library and the library of the Mori Ôgai Memorial at Luisenstraße 39. These texts are retrievable via the Primus Gateway. Some holdings, however, from the special collection Mori Ôgai, can be searched in a separate catalogue on site.
