The Chubu University Commemorative Japanese Collection was a gift presented by Chubu University to Ohio University to honor the long-standing relationship between two institutions. The Chubu Reading Room was established to provide materials on Japan for the Ohio University community. In the Chubu Reading Room, readers can read major Japanese newspapers and popular journals, use Japanese reference tools, and connect to Japanese Internet resources. The Chubu Reading Room is a popular place for Japanese students to come to read news from their hometown and a place for American students and others to have a taste of Japanese culture.
The Chubu Reading Room is located on the 1st floor of Alden Library in the Center for International Collections.
