EKS Library Selected To Receive Books On Understanding Contemporary Japan
Over the course of the Summer of 2009, the EKS Library applied for and was selected as a recipient of a book donation project sponsored by The Nippon Foundation. Dr. James Hastings, Assistant Professor of History at Wingate University, brought the program to the attention of the Librarians. The focus of the book collection is “Understanding Contemporary Japan.”
A total of 43 titles were selected by Dr. Hastings and Mr. Richard Pipes, Collection Development Librarian, in order to best support the University curriculum. The books arrived during the Fall semester. Currently, these titles are on display near the Reference Desk and are available for check out. To find this collection in the Library’s online catalog, simply enter “Nippon Foundation” into the Basic Search box and you will be linked to the entire list of items. Each item has a Nippon Foundation bookplate to recognize the work in our collection.
We would like to extend our appreciation to Dr. Hastings and Mr. Pipes for their instrumental roles in the application and selection process. These materials will serve and enhance the resources for multiple disciplines.
