Japan: The National Diet Library Online and Its New Services

From The National Diet Library Newsletter (February 2018):

2018-02-24_21-30-37The National Diet Library, Japan (NDL) is pleased to announce the launch on January 5, 2018, of a new system for online searches and requests. The National Diet Library Online Search and Request Service (NDL Online) has replaced the NDL-OPAC, which was in service for six years, from January 2012 to December 2017.

The NDL Online now provides patrons with a means to search for library materials and digital content available at the NDL, including the NDL Digital Collections, e-books, and e-journals. It also enables patrons to request a wide variety of NDL services that were formerly available only via disparate request forms and systems from a single, convenient system.


Patrons can easily access the NDL Online from the search bar at the top of the NDL website. We hope our patrons will enjoy using the NDL Online at least as much if not more than they did the NDL-OPAC throughout its years of operation.
