NIJL/EAJRS Kuzushiji Workshop, which is a collaborative programme between the National Institute of Japanese Literature (NIJL) and the European Association of Japanese Resource Specialists (EAJRS), started in 2011 under the initiative of Professor Yūichirō Imanishi, then the Director of NIJL. This training programme is designed for librarians and curators in Europe, who manage Japanese antiquarian materials. The aim of this workshop is to develop their skills in deciphering Japanese historical cursive scripts. The intention of the programme is to enable the librarians and curators to improve the organisation and management of their Japanese antiquarian collections. By this means we hope to encourage researchers to use these resources more effectively.
