The JAL* Project Executive Committee at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo is pleased to announce the JAL Project 2014** for inviting, giving training to, and exchanging with, Japanese-art librarians from outside Japan.
The selected participants will be given training at the related institutions such as the National Art Center, Tokyo; the Nara National Museum and so on, from December 1 to 11, 2014. Each of them will be asked to give a presentation titled “Recommendations for More Effective Dissemination of Information on Japanese-Art-related Materials” in Japanese during the open workshop on the last day.
The JAL Project is intended mainly for Japanese-art librarians working on Japanese-art-related materials outside Japan. In the JAL project, the term “Japanese art” comprises all forms of visual art including photographs, videos, manga, design and architecture. Thus, librarians, archivists and visual resources curators specializing in the genres mentioned above may apply for the project.
