TOKYO, JAPAN – APRIL 18 : A photo dated April 18, 2018 shows a person in the center of stacks of printed materials at the deepest underground floor of the Annex Building of the National Diet Library, within the ‘World Book Day’ in Tokyo, Japan. The National Diet Library (NDL) has first the mission to assist the activities of the Japan Parliament and is responsible for developing a comprehensive collection of publications issued in Japan. These are not only items published in the traditional paper form but also packaged digital publications (CDs,DVDs, etc..) and Internet resources (websites). As the sole national deposit library in Japan, its mission is to preserve them and ensure their usability in the long term, in addition to printed materials.
