Japanese Digital Resources: Link to UPenn's General Japanese Library Guide
Japanese Digital Resources
Put together by librarians and faculty from the University of Pennsylvania, this guide provides links to a wide variety of digital resources, including digital archives, search engines, book and article citation databases, portals, and news, related to Japanese studies. The majority of these mostly open access resources are appropriate for advanced research rather than undergraduate study, and are largely in Japanese. Resources are categorized by field, and general reference sources, digital archives, and search engines are also included.
Audio Recording Booth
Audio Recording Booth in the Media & Reserve Library
This noise-quieting (i.e., not soundproof) audio recording booth is located in the lower level, west wing. It is intended for use by members of the UWM community to rehearse speeches, conduct online or phone interviews, record audiovisual presentations or similar projects. The booth is not available for use as a quiet study space, music rehearsal space or for other non-recording or non-vocal uses.
The booth is available to those who are eligible to check out materials from the Media and Reserve Library, (i.e. valid UWM students, faculty and staff, and UW-System borrowers). Tripods and Smartphone Tripod adapters are also available for check out.
Nihongo: A Portal for Learning Japanese
A collection of links to Japanese-study websites that allows you to choose the site you want to visit by selecting various categories, such as Japanese ability-level, display language and skills covered. NOTE: Some of these resources require Adobe FLASH.
Tadoku (多読) is a Japanese method of learning foreign languages by reading easy books.
Ta (多) means “a lot” and doku (読) is “reading," so Tadoku literally means “read-a-lot.” It's sometimes called “extensive reading.”
