Handling of Non-film Materials in the Makino Mamoru Collection of C.V. Starr East Asian Library at Columbia University

From October to December, 2008, as an intern I arranged the Makino Mamoru Collection with some archivists in C.V. Starr East Asian Library, Columbia University. This collection includes a lot of books, magazines and other non-film materials about Japanese film history from the prewar to the postwar era. In this presentation, I will give an overview of the non-film materials in this collection and propose a plan for their database.
