Request for a questionnaire

We would like to ask all the Kyoto University members to help us
with a questionnaire about our libraries

This is our second attempt targeting the entire university community;
the first one in 2008, completed by about 3,000 people,
actually led us to extend the opening hours and establish the Study Room 24,
which is open for 24 hours.

We hope to make changes for the benefit of all users.
Please take time to fill out the questionnaire.


One of you will be selected by lot and win 50,000 yen worth of a prize of the three below.

  • Apple Watch
  • iPad mini
  • Gift card [iTunes card, coffee card, book coupon etc.]

The Study Room 24

The Study Room 24, a self-study room available for 24 hours, has been established on the 1st floor of the Main Library since January 19th, 2009.

Inter-campus Return Service

We have started the Inter-campus Return Service since June 2009. Library users now can return the books to their nearest library even if they were checked out from libraries located in another campus.

Extended Opening Hours

We have extended the opening hours at Main Library since October 1st, 2011. Now it opens one hour earlier at 8 a.m. on weekdays and closes 2 hours later 7 p.m. on weekends and holidays.
