National Union Catalog of Braille & Recorded Books in Japan

Currently, the National Union Catalog of Braille & Recorded Books in Japan (*) is searchable by the National Diet Library Online Public Access Catalog (NDL-OPAC) and the NDL Search. From January 2018, the search interface will be integrated into the NDL Search.

Through the NDL Search (Material search for persons with disabilities), you can search collectively materials and data for persons with print disabilities, such as the National Union Catalog of Braille & Recorded Books in Japan, materials for persons with print disabilities held by the NDL, Data Transmission Service for Persons with Print Disabilities and Sapie Library.

Through the National Diet Library Online which will be newly available, you can search only materials for print disabilities (including recorded books of academic material produced by the NDL) held by the NDL.

(*)This is the union catalog that contains information on the holdings of Braille books and recorded books produced by public libraries, Braille libraries, etc. in Japan for use by persons with print disabilities.
