Visiting Other Libraries (Letter of introduction)

About Stopping accepting applications for visiting and issuing letters of introduction to off-campus libraries

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection, we stop accepting new applications for visiting and issuing letters of introduction to off-campus libraries. After April 1 2021, we will resume accepting applications. Please check the website of the university library that holds the materials you wish to use if they are available for use by visitors, and if so, please apply using the dedicated form on this page.

Letters of introduction are issued at the Help Desk. Please see here and fill out the application form below.

  • We obtain permission from the visiting library in advance, so please apply 3-5 days before your planned visit.
  • You should specify below;
    • The date of visit (You need one letter per day)
    • The materials you wish to use

You may receive letters of introduction at the Help Desk from 9AM to 5PM on weekdays. Please consider the schedule for picking up letters of introduction.

Your personal information will be kept confidential, but we may use it to contact you and take statistics. The library deals with your personal information properly, based on Hitotsubashi University’s Personal Information Protection Regulations (No. 45, March 25, 2022) (in Japanese).
