Welcome to the WikiProject Japan Reference library. It is designed to help editors find printed (offline) sources for relevant articles that fall under this WikiProject.

Instructions for users[edit]

Find a book that may contain source information that you are looking for. Contact any of the users that own that book for more information.

Instructions for contributors[edit]

If you wish to contribute to the project, please add your personal books to those below and follow the general table format. The archive is arranged alphabetically by book title. If the book you wish to list is already present then just add your name to the table. Otherwise create a new table row in the archive with the title of the book. Remember to add your username (please keep them alphabetical) into the contact field for books you own. Please be thorough when checking books.

Note: If a title fits in more than one area, feel free to place it more than one section. However, please limit placement to two (perhaps three) areas so the list doesn't get too out of control. Thanks!

Additional note: For Japanese references, please include a romanized title. For authors, please include the romanized version as well. This will help those who can not read Japanese to know if the book will be useful to them. Thanks!
