What is JKBooks?

JKBooks is the electronic book platform for JapanKnowledge.

In contrast to the JapanKnowledge Lib archive of reference resource materials, JKBooks offers a collection of publications containing specialized content through its database. It features fast searches for desired content, and unaltered PDF page images of original books, while retaining the inherent ease of reading physical books in its display.
