Finding Japanese Books

Finding Japanese Journals at UBC

To find Japanese journals held at UBC, consult the UBC Library catalogue, and use the "Journal Title (begins with)" index as you see below.

Do not use the "Journal Titles" search tab in the Library home page or the Search Collections: Journals page because not all Japanese journals are discoverable in these portals.


InterLibrary Loans (ILL) from Japan

First check Worldcat to see if the work is held by a North American institution or NDL. If it is held by NDL, then fill out the ILL form and in the "comments" box mark down the ISSN and NDL article record ID if it's a journal article, listed on the right hand column if it's through CiNii. If you are requesting a book, please include the ISBN, and record ID.
