University of Pennsylvania has finished digitization (first stage) of our Japanese Juvenile Fiction Collection, dating from the late Meiji (1868-1912) and Taisho (1912-1926) periods, and are small, mass-market paperbacks never intended for long-term use preservation.

The Association of Teachers of Japanese is an international, non-profit, non-political organization of individuals and institutions seeking to promote the study of Japanese language, linguistics, literature, culture, and pedagogy, primarily at the college or university level. The Association fosters professional development and the exchange of research, and seeks to coordinate its activities with related organizations to promote Japanese studies.
Founded by a small group of Michigan Japanese teachers in 1995 funded by the Japanese Language Education Mini Grant, Japan Foundation, Los Angeles, the Japanese Teacher's Association of Michigan (JTAM) has now grown to include over 50 members. JTAM serves Michigan teachers of Japanese at the Pre-K-16 levels. From its inception to today, our goal has always been the same: to promote Japanese language and culture education and to support Japanese language educators in Michigan.

This project seeks to introduce significant electronic full-text databases for pre-modern Japanese literature. There are numerous on-line sites reproducing classical works today, but databases that are useful for researchers in Japanese studies are rare. Since e-texts cannot substitute for annotated scholarly print editions, their major utility is the capacity to search the texts for specific words and word combinations. For those with full Japanese language capability on their computers, of course, you can simply download the texts and then use the search functions in your word-processing programs.
