This chapter presents the development of library education and librarianship in Japan and the Philippines, two countries whose modern library development was influenced by and patterned after American librarianship and library education system. Extant archival documents and current literature about Japanese librarianship in the English language were the primary sources of information presented in this chapter, as well as interviews with library educators from Tenri University, Doshisha University, Tsurumi University, Keio University, and University of Tsukuba and some key officials of the Japan Library Association. Research instruments include semi-structured interview questions for the respondents. Qualitative data from the available literature and supplementary interviews were analyzed and presented in detail.
