The text of Genji Monogatari was input by Eiichi Shibuya of Takachiho Shoka University. We are extremely grateful to Professor Shibuya for permission to use his texts in the Japanese Text Initiative. The e-text was tagged with TEI-conformant SGML tags by Christine Ruotolo of the E-Text Center and Sachiko Iwabuchi, Research Specialist for the Japanese Text Initiative. Preparation of the header and further checking was done by Christine Ruotolo, who also developed the Web form display for the text.

The background for this edition is an image of handmade kozo paper by Timothy Barrett, author of Japanese Papermaking (New York: Weatherhill, 1992), in the collection of the Book Arts Press at the University of Virginia.
