This report introduces the Nagoya University Digital Library of Western Books released on the Internet in July 2018. This digital library was funded by Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research with the aim of widening the reach of the rare Western books held by Nagoya University Library. The feature of this digital library is that detailed descriptive catalogues are attached to the Western classical accounts that are stored. Essentially, the works published before the nineteenth century are not necessarily of the same edition even if they are printed at the same time, because of the historical features of the binding process. By merely digitizing the entire content of the work and publishing it in the Digital Library, the user was perhaps not able to understand the characteristics of the work. This digital library was created in consideration of this aspect. However, because of budgetary constraints, only publications that are rare and highly suitable for publication globally are given preference for digitization, and the number of works currently being published is 132. In this report, we shall introduce the characteristics and usage of this digital library.
