2017-10-3 The Collaborative Reference Database Project is Named Library of the Year 2017 in the Librarianship Category

On September 27, the Collaborative Reference Database (CRD) Project was named Library of the Year 2017 in the Librarianship category for long-term activities by accumulating, visualizing and sharing the reference services of more than 750 libraries with the general public.

The Intellectual Resource Initiative (IRI) is a non-profit organization that has presented Library of the Year Awards annually since 2006 to organizations that have contributed to the advancement of library science and pioneered a future direction for libraries. The Librarianship category of the Library of the Year Awards was established in 2016 to recognize the continued efforts of librarians and library patrons in collaborative library activities.

The NDL would like to express its deepest gratitude to its partner libraries that have dedicated their efforts to the Collaborative Reference Database Project and pledges to continue efforts to pioneer future directions together with libraries throughout Japan.
