Visitor Qualification

Visitor Qualification

Anybody eighteen years of age or older is eligible to visit and request the services of the National Diet Library (NDL).

User Registration

A new registered user system has been introduced from January 2012. User registration is required to use materials in the closed stacks, and to request later date photoduplication service sent by mail. You can use the library without user registration, but available materials and services are limited. By registering, you can use the Library in more convenient ways. Please see Registered User System and Library Services (PDF: 410KB) for the details of the procedure.
