The Okinawa Prefectural Library's rare materials digital archive provides access to digital images from the rare collection (old maps, scrolls, archival documents etc.), so that they are useable and protected.
While our patrons were only able to view these rare materials by physically visiting our institution, we have been able to reach a wider audience, as we are no longer limited by time or place, having made the rare materials digitally available. We hope to not only add the number of items in this digital collection, but to also improve the content by adding background information and explanations of each item.
