Lisa Sainsbury Library
About the Library
The Lisa Sainsbury Library was formally opened by the Ambassador of Japan, Mr Orita Masaki, in 2003. The facilities of the Lisa Sainsbury Library at the Norwich headquarters of the Sainsbury Institute are open to researchers in Japanese studies by appointment. The main reading room on the first floor and the storeroom on the ground floor have a wide selection of reference books and computer terminals for the convenience of library users. All materials are for use within the Library. A black and white photocopier is available within the limits of copyright law.
The Library is open from Monday to Friday, from 9.30am to 4.30pm. It is closed on Bank Holidays and during the Institute holidays at Easter and Christmas. Please email the Librarian, Akira Hirano, for all Library enquiries. Institute affiliated scholars also have full library privileges at the SOAS Library, which has a book stock of over 850,000 volumes, approximately 4,500 periodicals and an extensive collection of archives and manuscripts.Lisa Sainsbury Library
