Komato-chan and Knowledge Heritage - Exhibition of Komaba Library

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Komaba Library, we started a permanent exhibition introducing the activities and collections of the Library.
Venue: 1F exhibition corner or the display case in front of the copy corner (from 29 September 2022).




Theme1:Rare Komato Collections
We will introduce the library collections, which are not usually seen by everyone, along with the state of the Rare Books Storage and Storage Stack Room.

Theme2:Komato Collection that contributes to SocietyThe Komaba Library's collection contributes to society in various ways, sometimes appearing in publications, being broadcast on TV, and being exhibited at museums and other places. We will introduce the top three popular collections for such special use, along with actual examples.
In addition, rare books are digitally published on the web so that many people can see them widely while carefully protecting the actual books. In this exhibition, we will introduce the "Kano Kokichi Documents" and the "Collection of Dai-ichi Koto Gakko (Ichiko) [the First Higher School of Japan]."

Exhibition collaborators:Prof. Takashi TAMURA, Daiki TAKAYAMA, Katsuya ORIMO /Graduate School of Arts and Sciences
