After eight years of scanning the Prange Book Collection, we have reached the millionth image! This is a significant milestone and an indication of the broad scope of this project. There is still much work to do, but we are fortunate to have the support of the National Diet Library of Japan as a partner and resource for the long-term. The Book Collection reflects all that was happening on the streets, in homes, in the academies and in the political arena in Japan during the early years of the Occupation, 1945-1949. We hope to eventually bring all of these books to you (full-text), in the comfort of your own home or office, as soon as they are in the public domain!
