Use of External Library Materials

If the materials you require are not held by the library, the use of external libraries is possible. When making requests to use other libraries, please do so only after thoroughly checking the collections of Hitotsubashi University Library.

Investigating which library has the materials you require can be done via the online search services available at the reference corner, such as the National Institute of Informatics Information Services (NACSIS Webcat/Webcat Plus), or via the comprehensive catalog of foreign books. First look up whether there is a library that has the materials, and if so, then look up which library to use.
