Information plays one of the most important roles in this advanced information society. The mission of the university library is to assist faculty and students with their study and education in providing them with necessary information.
The university library consists of the Central Library located on the central campus and the Pharmaceutical Sciences Branch Library on the Hama-Koshien campus. In the Central Library, completed in 1994, about 1,090 seats and 580,000 volumes are available with a collection capacity of one million. It also has an electronic index system, a network system with an academic information center and student information services. In the Central Library, furniture from Denmark and Sweden was chosen very carefully to create a warm and comfortable atmosphere. In addition, audiovisual aids, such as DVDs and computers, are fully equipped on the AV floor.
