The University of Oregon Libraries holds one of the largest collections of Japanese votive slips in the world. The collection contains dozens of albums that are being digitized and cataloged as part of the Oregon Digital collaboration between the UO and Oregon State Univeristy.
The purpose of this project is to enrich the basic cataloging records by adding descriptions, translations, and transcriptions to the individual nōsatsu as well as the pages of collected nōsatsu.
If you are interested in contributing to this project, please contact Kevin McDowell at the Univeristy of Oregon Libraries.
