Ibaraki Network News Letter vol.32

 ~One year has passed since 11th March~

One year has passed since the day. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to you, who share our objectives and support our activities. Because you have developed a sincere interest in our doings, we could continue the entire operations.

The rescue operations for cultural properties and historical materials in Ibaraki Prefecture had reached a peak last autumn, and after that, we kept carrying out our operations mainly for tidying the materials which were rescued from the old family’s warehouse in Kitaibaraki City, as we had gathered information. Since last October, we held the operation at the Mito Campus of Ibaraki University once a week, as we had cooperation from mainly postgraduate and undergraduate students.

Although it was anticipated from the start, with times, in terms of the continuation of our activities, difficult problems have arisen, such as procuring resources and tools. Especially, gathering up manpower is the main issue. So far, another big problem is to secure the temporary spaces where the rescued materials can preserved in a good condition.

We have not found a fundamental solution yet; we would like to seek the way to be subsidised, as we continue our activities with vigorous determination.

Since March, we are offered classrooms as the temporary space from Tsukuba University. Because of this, we could expand our workshop. The Department of Humanities and Library in Ibaraki University have allowed us to use the preservation facility and the work areas. We appreciate your continuous support for the Ibaraki Network for Preserving Historical Materials.
