Book Purchase Request

To request that the library purchases a book

Research unit:
We will send e-mail to the research units when we collect book purchase requests from them. Up to three purchase requests per research unit will be accepted throughout the fiscal year.

Note: Not all recommendations can be accepted. The library may not accept requests for very specialized or unit-specified books. The Library Committee will make informed decisions about what to buy.

Students and Admin staff:
Please submit Student & Staff Book Purchase Request Form.

※Due to the end of the fiscal year, requests for the current year have been completed.

Please note that for the next fiscal year, orders will be placed after April, so books will not be delivered until May or June.


  • One purchase requests per student will be approved throughout the fiscal year. (Changed to May 2023)
  • Translation books from English into foreign languages will not generally be purchased.
