Project Research Center: The Kesennuma-Oshima Fishing Cooperative Library (Management and practical use)

Geographical scope

Kesennuma City, Miyagi Prefecture

Purpose

  • Sorting of materials in the Fishing Cooperative Library (January 2019)
  • The Oshima Fishery Cooperative Library

As part of the conservation and restoration of materials owned by the Kesennuma-Oshima Fishing Cooperative, we sorted and classified over 4,000 items for storage in the Oshima Fishing Cooperative Library, which was completed in September 2015. The Library not only conserves the Fishing Cooperative collection but also serves as a research base for ISJFC, the Graduate School of History and Folklore Studies and other groups. The library is expected to fulfill its expanding role as a base for promoting the culture of Oshima Island under the management of “Oshima Gyokyo Bunko no Kai” (Friends of the Oshima Fishing Cooperative Library).

Duration: 2016-
