Book Delivery between Campuses

Materials located in libraries on other campuses can be delivered to the campus nearest to you. This service is free and is available to students and faculty members only.

For Materials Located in the Central Library, Medical Library, or Pharmacy Library:

Search for the material you require using the Kumamoto University OPAC, click the Reserve/Order button to the right of the location information and log in, then choose the library from which you would like to pick it up. When the material becomes available for you to pick up, we will contact you via the contact details stored in SOSEKI or the library system.
Borrowing shall follow the rules and restrictions of the library from which the material was checked out. Materials can be renewed at the library from which they were checked out or on MyLibrary.

If you have any questions, please contact your nearest library counter.

  • After submitting your application, the material may be lent to another user before we are able to reserve the book for you. We will contact you if this situation arises.
  • If you do not pick up the material within one week of being informed of its arrival, the material will be sent back to its original location.

For Materials Located in Research Rooms on Other Campuses

Fill in the requester information (name, contact info) along with information regarding the material you would like to borrow on the Reference Copy Application Form and submit it to the library counter. You can also apply online by logging in to MyLibrary and choosing ILL Reference Copy/Library Loan Request.

Due dates for these materials differ from normal library materials. When returning borrowed materials, you must return the material to the place from which you checked it out.
