  Kyoto University has more than 50 libraries. These include its main library on the main campus, but also a great number of other, smaller departmental libraries and libraries affiliated with institutes. Each one of these libraries engages in collecting and collating books, journals, and other materials in accordance with its particular field, and strives to provide a comfortable, helpful learning environment.
  The Kyoto University Library Network was launched in April 2005, and its purpose is to provide a comprehensive, effective, cross-university framework for collaboration on issues that require inter-departmental cooperation and coordination.

  We introduce our activities in the 'Outline of the Kyoto University Libraries 2014', 'Outline of the Kyoto University Libraries 2015/2016' .
