How to Find Materials
As for materials of Yokohama National University's
holding, you can locate them by using "OPAC" (Online Public Access Catalog)
system which can search materials by personal computer. Please use
"OPAC" terminals situated on each floor. Moreover, "OPAC" is available
even from your home, because it is accessible via YNU Library's website
However, some informations such as loan status of books are not displayed
when "OPAC" is accessed from outside the university.
You can read books, journals, and microform materials
shelved inside the Library. In other words, you can read those
materials whose information of "Location" begins "中央図" or "理工図"
or "社会図" as displayed on "OPAC" search result. Almost all materials
are accessible directly by hand.
If you wish to use materials shelved in closed
stack (such as Special Collections Room, etc.), or those materials whose
information of "Location" is other than any of the informations mentioned
above, please consult with the Reference Desk at the 2nd floor of the Central
Library. (Office hours: Monday-Friday, 9:00-17:00)
Also there are materials which you cannot use
on the same day when you visit us.
If you have "Library Card", you can borrow those
books whose information of "Status" is "貸出可" (borrowable) as displayed
on "OPAC" search result. Please bring books you want to borrow and
your "Library Card" to the Main Counter with you.
Those books whose information of "Location" is
other than our library, and the materials designated as "in-library use
only", and all the journals are not to be borrowed outside the library.
Borrowing limit is up to 2 volumes (5 volumes
for alumni, etc.) and 2 weeks for loan period.
If you wish to continue borrowing the books after
their loan period, please bring them and your "Library Card" with you to
the Main Counter within their loan period. Books on loan are
renewable only once. If renewed, you can borrow 2 more weeks from
the day of renewing application. But you cannot renew the books reserved
Books under loan by others can be borrowed next time
with priority to you, if you make reservation of them. Please fill
and submit "Reservation form" placed on the Main Counter, if you would
like to reserve books on loan.
Present the books to be returned at the Main Counter.
When the Library is closed, you may drop the books into the Book Post installed
next to the entrance of the Library. If you fail to return by the
due date, you will be suspended from borrowing for the number of days overdue.
Materials shelved inside the Library can be copied
provided it is within the range decided by Copyright Act. You can
use photocopiers of the Library by making an entry on "Photocopy Record"
prepared at the photocopiers. Please refrain from copying those materials
which are not holdings of the Library.
The Library accepts inquiries about searching materials,
or using the Library. Please consult with the Reference Desk when
you have troubles in finding materials or in using the Library services.
