Service Guide: General Library (Outside Users)

Top Page > Service Guide: General Library (Outside Users)

While the main purpose of our library is to support the faculty's educational and research activities, the library is open to outside users who wish to use it in the pursuit of academic studies and research or lifelong learning. However, use of the library by outside users is limited to those whose purposes are using the library materials. (Using only the seats of the library is not allowed.)

Please note that priority is given to the faculty's educational and research activities.

This page is a guide to the General Library. Conditions of using the special libraries vary among the libraries. Please ask them for further details.
