Photos and News From Libraries Affected By Earthquake in Japan
From the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA):
Last week’s massive earthquake in Japan—and subsequent tsunami—has caused an untold number of deaths and tremendous damage. IFLA extends our deepest sympathy and sorrow to our Japanese colleagues as they struggle to deal with the damage to their lives and their country.
The IFLA post continues with links to statements from two library officials in Japan.
You’ll also find an item with links to reports and photos of several libraries. Most of the text on the compilation page and the underlying pages are in Japanese. If you don’t read Japanese, you can use your favorite online translation service (or two services) to a mechanical translation.
