Book Purchase Request
To request that the library purchases a book
Please download the Research Unit Book Purchase Request Form and submit the completed form to the library e-mail account "library at oist.jp." We accept one request form per unit, not on an individual basis.
Faculty members can make recommendations of books to be purchased, either for teaching or for research.
- 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.
- Up to three purchase requests per research unit will be approved throughout the fiscal year.
Students and Admin staff:
