I am delighted to share with you that thanks to the generous support of the Tateuchi Foundation, Ms. Yuko Fujimoto from Keio University Library has arrived at the East Asia Library on February 8th, 2016, for her six months visit as our first Tateuchi Japanese Visiting Librarian. This is part of the three-visitor pilot program at the East Asia Library of University of Washington funded by the Tateuchi Foundation.
Having received her undergraduate degree in library and information science from Keio University in 2006, Ms. Fujimoto has been an E-resources librarian at Keio University Library since 2014. Prior to that, she worked as a reference librarian in the Information and Media Center for Science and Technology, and also as an acquisitions librarian to select and order collections including e-resources in the technical services department of Keio University Library.
During her visit with us, Ms. Fujimoto will work closely with Ms. Azusa Tanaka, our Japanese Studies Librarian, and other staff of the East Asian Library in the areas of collection development of both print and electronic materials, digital collection management, and development of institutional repository. She will work with Charlene Chou, our Head of EAL Technical Services, to receive training for cataloging Japanese language materials using RDA. She will also continue her research interest in the area of copyright and cross-institution collaboration. We will arrange for Ms. Fujimoto to visit other units within UW Libraries for her to gain more firsthand experience of an American academic library. We are excited about Ms. Fujimoto’s visit and look forward to a successful and culturally enriching visit.
