In Japan, there is a rich and diverse collection of academic materials such as documents and folk tools, which are important resources not only for academic research but also for the development of society through education and industry. However, due to the rapid depopulation and aging of local cities and the effects of large-scale natural disasters such as earthquakes and typhoons, the situation regarding the preservation and inheritance of existing academic materials (local materials) in local areas is becoming increasingly severe, and the establishment of a new implementation system for the inheritance of local materials is one of the most urgent issues.
The proposers have been implementing the "Support Project for Inheritance of Local Materials Based on Industry-Academia-Government Collaboration" in the Oshu City area since 2020. In this session, we will report on the current status of surveying and organizing local materials and archives by "various bearers" in cooperation with industry, academia, and government, as well as the prospects for the continuation and development of the local materials inheritance project in the future. In addition, we would like to think about the realization of the inheritance of regional materials by considering it as an issue that should be shared by society as a whole, regardless of the region, the significance and ideal of inheritance projects involving people with various positions and roles, including academic researchers, and the disclosure and sharing of material information based on digital archives.
