Changes in the Terms of Service for the Use of Materials from Other Campuses


At present APU Library patrons are able to request books and other materials from all Ritsumeikan University libraries (Kinugasa Library, BKC Media Center, BKC Media Library, OIC Library, Suzaku Research Library). However, as of Tuesday, October 13, 2015, items shelved in the "Dokugaku Corner" and the "Career Corner" will no longer be available for request. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

Items may be requested until October 12, 2015, and patrons may still check out requested items even if they arrive at the APU Library on Tuesday, October 13 or later. However, it should be noted that even if you request an item prior to October 12, if the request period exceeds the 30 days for which the request remains active, then your request will be cancelled. In the event that your request is cancelled, you will receive an email. Please visit the front desk at the Library for more information if you have any questions.
