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 whole 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 (faculty) 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 UTAS (UTokyo Academic Affairs System).)
After the registration, you can enter all the University of Tokyo libraries by showing your student/faculty ID card. Borrowing books and journals is available with your ID card. (Some libraries do not provide borrowing service.)
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".

"The University of Tokyo Library OPAC (UTokyo OPAC)" allows you to search collections of the libraries in the University of Tokyo.
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 UTokyo 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.
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 (photocopies 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".
