The Japanese collection has historical and current strengths in literature, history, archeology, religion, and the history of art, all ranging from ancient to modern periods. Recently, art catalogs from regional museums in Japan, urban exploration and "ruins" photography, comics and graded readers for language learners, Imperial Navy materials, and contemporary fiction are being collected in more breadth and depth, making Penn's collections in these areas relatively unique among North American and, in some cases, worldwide library holdings. The Penn Libraries collects a variety of Japanese rare materials , including but not limited to books, periodicals, scrapbooks, limited-circulation newspapers, manuscripts, photographs, and art prints. These come to the Libraries both from targeted purchases from Japan, and from gifts in kind.
