Using the Library

The Library is situated in the same building as the Japan Society at 13/14 Cornwall Terrace, London NW1 4QP.

The Japan Society collection is open to members and non-members for research purposes and is divided into two components. The first, comprising the most valuable items, cannot be loaned but is available for study on site. Study facilities and a limited photocopying service are available. The second component, the open collection,  comprises  books which are available for loan to members (corporate and individual) subject to the Society’s loan procedure (see below).

Anyone wishing to use the Library should contact us one week in advance of the proposed visiting date.
