The National Diet Library's New Online Search and Request Service

By the National Diet Library, Japan

The National Diet Library, Japan (NDL) launched a new system for online searches and requests on January 5, 2018. The National Diet Library Online Search and Request Service (NDL Online) has replaced the NDL-OPAC, which was in service for six years, from January 2012 to December 2017.

The NDL Online now provides patrons with a means to search for library materials and digital content available at the NDL, including the NDL Digital Collections, e-books, and e-journals. It also enables patrons to request a wide variety of NDL services that were formerly available only via disparate request forms and systems from a single, convenient system.

* Patrons must obtain a Registration Card to use materials at the NDL. A driver's license or other proof of identity is required.

For application procedures, please refer to the 9. Login/Online User Registration.

More detailed explanation is available in an article included in "The NDL Online and its new services" (National Diet Library Newsletter No. 216, February 2018).
