Libraries in Japan – Save The Library

Our friends in Japan are dealing with more pressing problems, but librarians in Japan have created a Web site ┬ácalled “Save The Library” to help libraries impacted by the earthquake and tsunami.

The Wiki is posting information on disaster management, recruitment of volunteers, and expedited ILL, among other topics. Most postings are in Japanese.
