Ryukyu/Okinawa-related Materials Digital Special Collection (Trial Run) Now Available for Public Viewing
The Ryukyu/Okinawa-related Materials Digital Special Collection is now available for public viewing. We’ve constructed this new site in light of the aging of our existing system. The site currently (as of April 1, 2020) consists of 198 material items. Moving forward, we will work to improve and enhance the site by transferring content from the existing system, as well as adding previously undisclosed collections.
Please use the new site along with the existing site until the new site is completely ready.
The existing site will be closed down once all of the content is transferred to the new site. The term shimuchi means “written material” in Okinawan dialect. As such, every effort to construct an enhanced and improved digital collection of written materials.
Existing Site: http://manwe.lib.u-ryukyu.ac.jp/d-archive/ (scheduled to be closed down on July 31st, 2020)
New Site: https://shimuchi.lib.u-ryukyu.ac.jp/
The construction of the new digital archive was funded through the FY 2019 Academic Research Environment Improvement Budget.
