Notice : Delays and difficulties in obtaining materials from other universities in December and January may occur.

Due to the suspension of Inter-Library Loan (ILL) system (1/23-1/31), it may be difficult to order books or photocopies from January onwards.
This system is used by the most of the university libraries in Japan, and we anticipate that there will be a significant impact on the number of libraries that will stop accepting ILL requests before and after the system shutdown period.


Materials arriving in December have to be used by the end of the year, and the period of use may be much shorter than usual.
In January, the system suspention may shorten the usage period or make it temporarily difficult to obtain materials.
If you wish to use the materials for a longer period of time, please consider applying in February or later.


It may take time to obtain photocopies or become difficult to obtain them after January. If you are in a hurry, please apply as soon as possible.
