Sorry for my long absence. The site looks good and fun.Thanks, Konrad!
I would just like to inform that Japan Center for Asian Historical Records (JACAR, アジア歴史情報センター）http://www.jacar.go.jp/ is coming to hold a workshop on March 20 (Tuesday) at the Knafel center at Harvard. Detail/logistics is being worked out right now and I would like to hear from potential audiences’ interests and suggestions. Let me know. As you may know JACAR offers a database of over 850,000 documents in 12 million digital images drawn from the Japan’s National Archives, the Diplomatic Archives, and the Institute of Self Diffense Archives, and is growing fast. An essential resource for Modern East Asian History. JACAR’s chief project administrator Mr. Shohei Muta will lead the workshop/s and looking forward to hearing from your feedbacks, questions, suggestions.
P.S. The day before, on March 19, we are planning for a hans-on workshop for JapanKnowledge http://na.jkn21.com.ezp1.harvard.edu:82/, another indispensable Japan research tool. The site is adding Shogakukan’s Nihon Kokugo jiten 「日本国語辞典」, 13 volumes of Japan’s version of the OED.
