Use of materials not available at Kwansei Gakuin University


The Kwansei Gakuin University Library collects and houses a broad range of materials to provide its library patrons with academic information. However, the amount of materials that can be collected by a single university is of course limited.
To remedy such a situation, the Kwansei Gakuin University Library cooperates with other university libraries under the interlibrary loan agreement, for the convenience of its library patrons.
Under the interlibrary loan agreement, the circumstances and rules of the library providing the service take priority.



The following three types of service are available under the interlibrary loan agreement.
Inquiries and applications may be made at the Reference Counter.


1. Ordering Photocopy Service
You can order photocopies of articles from periodicals, or selected pages of books from other library.
It takes 10 to 14 days to receive the copies.
The actual costs, including photocopying and postage fees and handling charge, must be paid.
Online Order (PDF)

2. Ordering Book Loan Service
Books loaned by other libraries can be only used inside the Kwansei Gakuin University Library building.
The types of book loaned and their loan periods varies, and depends on the library lending the item.
Books loaned by other libraries cannot be taken outside the library or duplicated.
The actual costs must be paid, including postage fees for ordering in and returning and handling charge.

3. Visiting Other Library
With a letter of introduction written by the director of the Kwansei Gakuin University Library and your student ID card, you may visit another library to use its materials inside the library building.
Please place a request at the Reference Counter on the 1st floor three to five days prior to the date you want to visit the library, as we need to confirm availability at the library beforehand.
