Japanese Studies

Significant Gifts / Donations

1. Buritanika Kokusai Dai Hyakka Jiten / ブリタニカ国際大百科事典 ( Britannica international encyclopaedia ),第3版. 東京 : TBSブリタニカ, 1998. 20 vols.

The libraries received this gift in April 2004 from Japan Foundation via the North-American Coordinating Council on Japanese Materials (NCC). NCC chose Binghamton University Libraries as one of the 10 recipients among the many applicants because of its growing Japanese studies program, and its potential contributions to the dissimilation of Japanese studies information at upper state New York.

2. Ukiyoe Taikei / 浮世絵大系 , 東京 : 集英社 , 1976. 17 volumes

Binghamton University Libraries received this set of beautiful Japanese wood block prints from Mr. John Copolus, an alumni of BU. The books are housed in Special Collection, with English translation of plates and illustrations attached.

3. Donald M. Richardson Collection on Japanese Culture

In September 2004, Binghamton University Libraries received a bequest from Mr. Donald M. Richardson to house his lifelong collection of works of Japanese cultures, literature, history, and reference, in both Japanese and in translation.
