The 27th annual conference of the European Association of Japanese Resource Specialists (2016 EAJRS)

From September 14th to 17th, we attended the 27th annual conference of the EAJRS held in the Central University Library, University of Bucharest, Romania, and conducted the resource providers workshop.

The theme was "International Cooperation Between Japanese Studies Libraries". The National Museum of Japanese History (NMJH) joined in this EAJRS for the first time, but we aimed to introduce "Integrated Studies of Cultural and Research Resources" and to discuss about research cooperation.

Our workshop was conducted in the morning of 16th (Fri), but we were able to show our booth for explaining our project.

In our workshop, we explained the outline of Integrated Studies of Cultural and Research Resources and further plans, and introduced NMJH's databases. Many participants visited our booth, and some of them invited us new research cooperation and publishing. So I think we got many good results for expanding our research perspectives.

During stays in Bucharest, we went to museums and the great sights, and enjoyed Romanian traditional dishes in lunch times and conference dinner.

Due to much volumes, I couldn't had them all, but enjoyed all of dishes.

EAJRS will be held in the University of Oslo next year, and we are planing to conduct some research presentations of Integrated Studies of Cultural and Research Resources.
