Media Center

The Media Center collects, maintains, and encourages the use of information and books on Okinawa's nature, history arts and culture, keyed to museum objectives and the prefecture's basic educational policies. The Center's policy is to make its information as widely available as possible. Specifically, the museum manages its holdings of museum and art museum-related books and other pertinent materials, purchases materials and receives gifts so as to make information efficiently available to visitors in the museum. The museum works to efficiently process materials so they will be ready accessible for visitor use and research and will spark and support lifelong learning.
