Other Facilities

We look forward to welcoming you to use our facilities, including the Library and Reading Room.


Library

Experience Japan…

In the library you will feel as if you are in Japan, surrounded by a collection of over 30,000 books in Japanese. This is the perfect place to read and revise quietly, looking out over the serene Zen garden. The main subject emphasis is on Humanities and Social Sciences. In particular, we hold books on Japanese History, Literature and Arts. In addition, we have a wide collection of Japanese comics (Manga) in English. There is also a good selection of DVDs including Japanese animation films, mostly in the English language.

Are you learning Japanese or interested in Japanese Culture?

We have just purchased a new selection of self-study Japanese books and language guides in English. They are perfect if you want to learn some basic phrases or start your language learning journey. Most of the books are accompanied with a CD too. They are now available for loan from our Library at LHCC.

Membership

Students and staff from Durham University are fully entitled to borrow books and DVDs. The public may request membership, which is granted at the discretion of the Principal.
