The Main Library has been partially open since the summer of 2015 due to the earthquake-resistance renovation work. We’d like to announce that starting May 12, the opening hours will return to its regular schedule.

★You can use Front Entrance Door more…
We have installed the Entering-Leaving System, so please be sure to bring your student / faculty ID card or library user’s card at the time of your visit. Also, please note that the book materials are being moved while the Library is open. Therefore, you might still have limited access to some book materials.

★You can use the Computer and Printer
After May 12, the services that were provided in the Study Room (newspaper reading, use of desktop computers and printers) will be at the Main Library.

★Free ILL and Book Loan services are available more..(about book) (about journal articles)
As of May 12, the following two types of book materials cannot be used because they are still stored outside of the library.

  ①Japanese and foreign magazines, university journals acquired between 1976 and July of 2015
  ②Foreign books acquired before 1994

We are advancing our preparations toward the goal of making these book materials available sometime in July. Until then, we have free Copy (ILL) and Book Loan Services (※Internal users only).
