Library and Information Resources
The Modern Language Centre at King's College has about 100 Japanese teaching materials, including text books, books, audio and computer aided resources. It subscribes to the weekend edition of the Asahi Shimbun, and receives a monthly magazine about Japanese contemporary culture/issues. The average annual expenditure on Japan-related resources since 1993 is £200-250. As the main library at King's College does not have a separate Japanese section, no statistics were available for this but the College has access to all the other libraries of the University of London . The MLC has also started using the Internet in teaching Japanese, as part of the courses and as part of the encouraged independent study programme using the open learning resources.
