□ Other notes
  • There is a limit of ten per member in an academic year because we'd like to accept requests from a lot of people.
  • We select between paper books and e-books on the basis of the price and the contents, etc.
    (E-books for Institution are expensive than paper books in general)
  • We would appreciate it if faculty members donate copies of their own publications to the library.
