Many large libraries provide funding to use their collections, often as part of outreach associated with their Title VI center. Knowledge of a collection's strengths is useful in selecting a library to visit; some libraries have divided collection responsibilities with sister institutions and an understanding of these cooperative agreements will minimize your chances of a wasted trip. Contacting the Japanese Studies librarian before you go is the best way to ensure a productive trip.
