Making full use of the library!

Besides the General Library, Komaba Library, and Kashiwa Library, each Faculty/Department has its own library at the University of Tokyo, and the libraries are called "University of Tokyo Library System". To use any of the libraries, you first need to make "user's registration". Please go to your department library with your Student (Staff) ID card for registration. (This procedure is unnecessary for 1st and 2nd year students of the College of Arts and Sciences and students above 3rd year that are registered to the Academic Affairs System.)
If there is anything that you are unsure of using one of the library services, feel free to consult your department library.
Figure2: To use the library
Those who are registered library users can make book reservation, book delivery requests, extension requests, and library book purchase requests by logging in on "MyOPAC" on the page of the University's library collection database catalogue "The University of Tokyo Library OPAC". These services are free of charge.
If you experience trouble logging in or forgot your password, please refer to Login Help of MyOPAC login page.
Library user registration is necessary to use MyOPAC.
Also, by submitting "Application form for the MyOPAC delivery request service"(PDF) to your department library, you will be able to use services such as copy request (charged).
Registered users can order on-campus materials (printed copies or PDFs) or materials from other universities (printed copies or books) after logging in on MyOPAC.
See the page below for details on ordering documents such as fees and delivery time.
If there is anything that you are unsure of on using one of the library services, feel free to consult your department library counter or submit questions to the librarians using the "ASK Service".
