Dear Mr. Paschal:

We, the faculty in Japanese Studies at the University of Florida, want to express our appreciation
for the support extended to our institution and faculty in the past two years. We were delighted when
our proposal for the Staff Expansion Program was funded this year, allowing our department to add a
tenure-accruing position in Modem Japanese Literature. We are now conducting a search to fill the
Modem Literature position to begin in the fall semester of 1995. Furthermore, Dr. Ann Wehmeyer
received support from the Japan Foundation Fellowship Program, and was sponsored by Professor
Hasegawa Michiko of Saitama University to conduct research on kotodama during academic year 1993-94.
We realize that our efforts to strengthen and expand the program in Japanese Studies could not have been
achieved without the generous support from the Japan Foundation.
The list of reference materials and multi-volume collections compiled in our application reflects
the research needs of Dr. Wehmeyer (Linguistics), Dr. Hulvey (Premodern Literature) and the new
tenure-track specialist in Modem Literature. Reference materials are not available through interlibrary
loans, but large collections (e.g. premodern literature, etc.), even though available through interlibrary
loan, are not easily used without accompanying volumes and indices to facilitate research. Moreover, it is
mandatory that our library purchase collections in premodern and modern literature so that we can
support graduate programs in Japanese Studies in the near future.
The University of Florida is geographically isolated from research libraries specializing in
Japanese Studies. The nearest research library is the Library of Congress located in the nation's capital.
Our faculty have taken advantage of travel grants to visit research libraries, but have found it difficult to
satisfy all research needs on this basis. At the request of the faculty in Japanese, the humanities librarians
at the University of Florida agreed to resubmit their application to the Japan Foundation Library Support
Program. The purchase of the requested volumes would enhance our basic reference collection
considerably, and enable the faculty to do the groundwork necessary for any research.
If there are any questions about this proposal, please feel free to contact me at (904) 392-4916 or
FAX (904) 392-1443. I look forward to hearing from you concerning this and other Japan Foundation
related matters.

Describe in detail the means to be used for disseminating information on library holdings and contents. These may include not only in-
terlibrary loan systems, on-line catalogs, and accessibility to outsiders, but also additional methods for reaching users outside your in-
The University of Florida has an online catalog (LUIS), which is also part of the
combined online catalog of the State University System. About 99% of the Libraries'
holdings have now been converted to machine readable format. The OPAC uses a
modified NOTIS system and is accessible throughout the U.S. through the Internet. It
contains 2,000,000 bibliographic records (as of October 1994) and the Statewide
online catalog contains 8,000,000 records, one of the largest bibliographic database
after OCLC and RLIN. Japanese titles are cataloged according to the Library of
Congress modified Hepburn system. The Libraries are a member of both OCLC and RLG
and their holdings are in both OCLC and RLIN databases and are available for
interlibrary loan requests. The State of Florida maintains a courier system for
document delivery.

As a State Institution, the Libraries' holdings are fully available to the general
public for consultation and research.

In 1990, Dr. Ann Wehmeyer, Assistant Professor of Japanese Linguistics in the

donation of textbooks, audio-visual materials, dictionaries, reference materials
and miscellaneous teaching aids from the Japanese-Language Teaching Materials
Donation Program.

Other relevant information about the applicant library/insititution/consortium which may be helpful in the screening process.
Please refer to V Application Procedure 8 of application instruction (on page iii)

The University of Florida offers a B.A. degree in the Japanese track of East Asian Languages and
Literatures (established in 1988) carried by the Department of African and Asian Languages and
Literatures, the only public institution with an undergraduate program in Japanese Studies in the
southeastern region of the United States. Present faculty consists of two tenure-track specialists in
Premodern Literature and in Linguistics and one lecturer (Culture) housed in African and Asian
Languages and Literatures (AALL), and two tenure track faculty in the Departments of History and
Economics. It is a dynamic and growing program that includes an active exchange program, for majors
and minors, with Kansai-Gaidai (Foreign) University. A maximum of five students per academic year are
accepted to study in Japan under this exchange program. It is the goal of the Japanese faculty at the
University of Florida to develop graduate programs in Japanese Studies in the future. The first step
toward that goal was realized this yearwhen the Japan Foundation Staff Expansion Program grant
submitted by the Japanese faculty was funded, creating a new tenure line position in Modem Japanese
Literature. The Japanese faculty are now conducting a search for this position, which will commence in
the 1995-96 academic year. With the addition of a Modern Japanese Literature faculty member in the
African and Asian Languages and Literatures Department, required courses in the undergraduate degree
program for majors in the Japanese track of East Asian Languages and Literatures can be offered more
frequently, thereby facilitating quicker completion of requirements toward graduation for majors. There
is a dire need for library reference materials to meet the short-term goal of providing support for the
research endeavors of Japanese faculty members and to begin working on the long-term goal of
establishing graduate programs in Japanese Studies at the University of Florida.

The Library is fully committed to provide all the appropriate resources in support of this goal. This is all
the more crucial since Gainesville is not a major urban center with easy access to other research
institutions in this field. The nearest research collection is the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.

A number of disciplines cumulatively spend about $14,000-$15,000 a year in support of Japanese Studies
for serials and monographs, in both Japanese and English language. Besides Japanese Studies the
following disciplines regularly buy material related to Japan: history, linguistics, film studies, theatre,
business, economics, religious studies, sociology, education, and political science. Unfortunately the
Library budget during fiscal years 1991-1993 suffered a thirty-two percent reduction in the State
allocation for library materials. While the budget for fiscal year 1994-1995 has increased, the Library has
not been able to develop or strengthen its holding for major reference works or sets in Japanese Studies,
which are necessary for the present program and to support faculty research. Basic reference tools
necessary for research such as geographical diconaries (Gendai Nihon chimei yomikata daijiten), modem
literary dictionaries (Nihon kindai bungaku diepteO). premodern collections (Shink6 gunshot ruij2 and Gunsho
kaidai), historical dictionaries (Kokushi daijite). modern biographical dictionaries (Gendai Nijon jinmei
roku), premodern annotated collections (Shinrpm NAon koten bungaku zenshf) and the like are not held by
the University of Florida Library, and are not among items which facilitate research through interlibrary
Loan. Therefore, Japanese research faculty have had to exert considerable effort and time writing grants
to fund travel to research libraries to conduct basic research to fulfill tenure review requirements in the
area of publication. If these basic reference tools were procured by the University of Florida Library, it
would not only facilitate research but would also form the core of the collection from which a graduate
program could eventually be developed. Without substantial enhancement of the Japanese collection,
especially in the area of reference works, the establishment of a graduate program in Japanese Studies
cannot be realized.

This is the area that the present proposal is particularly trying to address, as well as trying to strengthen
holdings in the literary fields, which are not quite as strong as those in history. The titles were carefully
chosen by the faculty and are essential for reference and consultation. The Library hopes that the
Foundation will find this proposal fully justified and grant the maximum financial donation allowed.
The Library will, naturally, pay for all postage related to the grant.
