Notice

To TA of the class at Daiko and Tsurumai Campus

You can use Central Library Virtual Tour slides if your class is held at Daiko or Tsurumai Campus.

However, first year students take many classes in Higashiyama Campus and use Central Library space for studying. Hence, you are asked to conduct the actual library tour, rather than a virtual tour.

Using Seminar Rooms and Satellite PC Lab. at Central Library

You can use Seminar Room A/B and Satellite PC Lab. when you will hold the briefing with a PC and a projector.
