On May 2, 2005, Takao Kurosawa, the Librarian of the National Diet Library of Japan (NDL), and University of Maryland President C.D. Mote Jr. signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to preserve and provide access to the 71,000 books in the Gordon W. Prange Collection.

In the ten years that have passed, approximately 8,000 children’s books and approximately 6,500 general books have been digitized.  We in the Prange Collection celebrate this milestone and look forward to continuing our productive partnership with NDL.
