How to Retrieve the Library Materials

japanese

(1)Use Catalogs

You are expected to locate the library materials on their shelves yourself, but due to loaning they may not always be there.
In the Library of the University of the Ryukyus, you can locate materials through the online catalog, and card catalogs.
       
(OPAC) (Online Public Access Catalog)
The online catalogs help you to retrieve any of the library materials
you want if you type in the ‘title’ or ‘author’. It will tell you how many copies under that title there are and where they are or all the books by that author there are and where they are.
 For your reference, an extensive Japanese version of the manual is placed beside some terminals.
The greatest advantages of this online catalog system are that it is
very easy to operate and that it contains all sorts of information about the material, such as where it is stored and whether it is loaned out at the moment. All that you have to do is to follow the directions given on the screen–to enter the requested words and operate the designated keys. You are expected to get acquainted with this convenient online catalog system.
Periodicals can be retrieved not only on webcat but also by the Periodicals Inventory of Ryukyu University (a book-form inventory).
