We are happy to announce about new ILL service for copies of articles from Ōya bunko. As you many of you know, the bunko holds many treasures of post war popular magazines which are rarely held in academic libraries and hard to access. If you can identify citations of articles fromWeb Oya database and send the citation to me, we will be happy to get the articles if the magazines and journals are not held at Yale.

About Ōya bunko 

About Web Ōya (https://www.oya-bunko.com/)

Web Oya is an online database of the index from the Ōya Sōichi Bunko, which is well known for its strong collection of popular weekly, general interest, and women's magazines. Web Oya lets you search titles, keywords and people (as authors or subjects) of popular magazine articles from 1988 to 1995.

Although the database is rapidly and continuously adding contents from magazines published in 1868 to 1987, for full coverage of the collection, please consult their print version in the East Asia Library Reference Room (SML 219). Please note, we can only obtain articles which you find in the online database version, not the print version of index.
