The University's principal collection relating to Japan is housed in BJL. The Library holds about 16,200 Japan related books in western languages and about 75,000 in Japanese. It receives 129 Japan-related journals in western languages and 506 journals in Japanese. The annual expenditure on Japan-related library resources is about 80,000 to 90,000; and the annual intake is approximately 3,000 volumes. The prime responsibility of the BJL is to acquire current material in support of teaching and research as undertaken by Oxford specialists in Japanese, both in the general humanities and social sciences, regardless of the language in which this is expressed or the place of publication. In scope, the collection is restricted to the humanities and social sciences, in which works are acquired which relate to the history and culture of Japan . With the exception of the history of science, no attempt is made to collect in the field of the natural sciences, which are the responsibility of the Radcliffe Science Library (the Scientific Books Department of the Bodleian Library). As far as finance permits, all major works of reference are acquired. The history of the Bodleian Japanese language collection goes back to the first days of the Library, the earliest acquisition having reached the Bodleian as early as 1629. The collection comprises manuscripts and antiquarian printed books as well as modern publications. The fields of literature, religion, history and politics are particularly strongly represented. The collection of Japanese local histories is probably the foremost such collection outside Japan . Works in European languages are extensively acquired. In cases where these come to the Library under the terms of copyright deposit, certain titles are duplicated for inclusion in the loan collection.
