To find Japanese books and e-books, consult the UBC Library catalogue first. This is the easiest way to access UBC's Japanese book collections even though not all the e-book titles have a record in our catalogue. (To search all e-book titles, consult the e-book section of the Japanese Studies Resources guide.) The Library catalogue search can also be done on the Library home page through the Books & Media tab.
If you need library material that the library does not currently license in electronic format, or only has in print, please send a request to the Japanese Studies Librarian. If the requested material is for a course, please include your name, faculty, course number, and date by which the material is needed.
The library is working to source electronic versions of print materials. The Japanese e-books are available on the following three commercial platforms.
Tip: Not all e-book titles are listed in our library catalogue. For complete searching, please consult Maruzen eBook Library, Kinoden, and EBSCO (limit language to Japanese) individually.
