About us (English)
"NDL Lab" is a website which has been offering an experimental environment for new library services since May 7, 2013.
Ongoing development of information technology requires us to research in order to realize inventive and leading-edge services. In October 2011, the National Diet Library (NDL) set up for this purpose a new division named Research and Development for Next-Generation Systems Office (R&D office) under the Digital Information Services Division of the Digital Information Department. The R&D office launched "NDL Lab," a virtual place for cooperation with researchers from universities and institutes to make use of their cutting edge knowledge.
