Digital Fujikawa

Kyoto University Library Network and Keio University Media Center launched the Joint Project on Digital Unification of Fujikawa Collection (Digital Fujikawa) in 2018. This project intends to contribute to the development of the research in the history of medicine in Japan by providing the comprehensive view of Fujikawa Collection that has been physically divided into several parts, each currently held by a different institution. This is also a showcase of digital unification utilizing IIIF features, for which we plan to increase digital images available and participating institutions and develop new functions, in order to progress this project from the current trial phase to a full-scale phase by the end of academic year 2020/2021.
