Laboratory Materials

Materials which show “Laboratory” status on OPAC are located in faculties.
These are books/journals purchased by professors for their own research using with their own research funds, so as a rule others cannot use them.

Books

Only for members of Kobe University, we can ask the professor whether he/she is willing to loan the book.
Please apply at the circulation counter or application form the Information Service Section for Science and Technology.
However, despite an application you make, you may not be allowed for use.

Or you can also use the Student Purchase Request service. The library will consider to purchase it.
If you are looking for Japanese books, public libraries may hold them.
Please search the nearby public libraries listed below.

Journals

As a rule, we do not ask professors, even if you are a member of Kobe University.
If you have special circumstances to be considered, ask at the circulation counter or e-mail the Information Service Section for Science and Technology, please.
