The ILL/DD Committee of the North American Council on Japanese Library Resources (NCC) made an announcement that the GIF Project, which has been fulfilling inter-library loan and document delivery needs between Japanese and North American/Oceanian libraries since 2002, is now in transition to a new system to be fully implemented by March 2017. ... the International ILL Task Force strongly recommends that North American/Oceanian libraries consider using ILL/DD services provided by the National Diet Library (NDL).
The UI Libraries is a registered institutional user for the NDL's ILL/DD services.

The Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Committee of the NCC is responsible for promoting developments that maximize access to Japanese language research materials not available in North America while minimizing language and fiscal barriers to acquiring those materials through interlibrary loan and/or document delivery.
If you need any assistance, please contact the ILL/DD Committee members: http://guides.nccjapan.org/illdd.

The Global ILL Framework (GIF) Project is a reciprocal interlibrary loan and document delivery agreement between North American and Japanese academic libraries and research institutes. The GIF Project provides you additional means to access what you cannot obtain from other North American libraries via normal ILL/DD services.
As of May 2013, 161 Japanese libraries provide document delivery services to North American GIF members. If your library participates in GIF Book Loan service, you can request book loans with 89 Japanese GIF libraries as well. Japanese GIF member list is accessible at http://wwwsoc.nii.ac.jp/gif/statistics/us/gif-japan-library.html.
Step by step user guide for GIF Project is available from the NCC's ILL/DD Committee site at http://guides.nccjapan.org/illdd.
The NCC's ILL/DD Committee strongly recommend you to double check the holding location and periodical volume/issue informatoin in individual libraries' OPACs. Items in branch libraries may not be available. Please refer to individual libraries' lending policies for more details at http://wwwsoc.nii.ac.jp/gif/statistics/us/gif-japan-library.html.
Check volume and publication date information carefully in CiNii Books and individual GIF libraries' OPACs to identify possible suppliers for your journal article requests. The volume information string has two parts: volumes ( issues ) and < beginning and ending years of coverage >.
This library has volumes published between 1970 and 2003 with some missing volumes and issues.
This title seemes like a monthly publication. The library does not have v.14 no.9 and v.14 no.12. The empty parenthesis after volumenumber 27 indicates v. 27 has several missing issues. If no parenthesis appears after volume numbers, the library has the complete set of those volumes. This library has the complete set of volume 13, 15-26, and 34-45.
