If you want to manage your bibliographic information easier, "RefWorks" might be the solution! The lecture will be held by inviting a special lecturer. to help you understanding the usage of this tool. If you are interested, please join the lecture!

New Library Website launched [2017-03-31]

The new Library website launched on March 31, 2017.

While it succeeds most of the former website contents and functions, top page design exposes as much contents in the form of clustering lists of individual service categories.

Though it might look complex at a first glance, it should provide faster access to information that users are looking for. Higher security, too, is expected to eliminate the risk of malicious attacks to the server.

We would be happy to receive any opinions and impressions at the following email address for future website develpment.
