Washington University East Asian Library Journal Taiyo Document Delivery

Taiyo is a general-topic journal published by Hakubunkan from Meiji 28 (1895) to Showa 3 (1928). As one of the leading magazines in early 20th-century Japan, Taiyo provides an unparalleled and comprehensive overview of Japanese society and culture during this crucial period. The set is an important part of our library collection. It also supports the development and expansion of Japanese studies at Washington University and other neighboring universities via a document delivery system.
Based on the license agreement with Yagi Shoten, the Taiyo CD-ROM set is available for document delivery to patrons of Washington University and five other universities (University of Missouri, University of Kansas, University of Illinois, University of Iowa and University of Texas) free of charge. Upon libraries' requests for an article through our document delivery system, the Washington University Library can search for and send the article to the requesting library via fax, email (as an attachment) and standard mail. Besides the conventional ILL system, the request for article from Taiyo can be directly processed at the East Asian Library by submitting requests via email. For direct requests, please download a request form ([Word], [PDF]) and email the completed form to rkomaki@wustl.edu. (The PDF form is editable, but requires the Adobe Reader).

Eligible Users

Faculty, staff, graduate students, and undergraduate students with valid library card from Washington University in St. Louis, the University of Kansas, the University of Illinois, the University of Iowa and the University of Texas are eligible for the service.
