Workshop on Japanese Research Tools in Helsinki 11 September 2017

This post is also available in: Finnish

This annual NIAS workshop on using databases for Japanese Studies is this year organized by Helsinki University Library. It is best suitable for researchers or students who know Japanese or are on the way of learning it since most of the content in the databases is in Japanese. The presentations are in English.

As usual there will be hands-on introductions by the vendors to the most important Japanese databases on AsiaPortal: JapanKnowledge, Asahi Shimbun Kikuzo, Nikkei Telecom, Japan Times and Yomidas Rekishikan. The workshop is useful both for new and more experienced users of the databases as the presentations also include new features.

Participation is free, but registration is necessary as seats are limited.
