Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service – for borrowing

*Japanese version is here→ “図書貸借申込

If the books you want to use are not available at Saitama University, you can borrow books from a library outside Saitama University. Please check the OPAC of Saitama University in advance and make sure that the book is not on campus.
This service is available only to faculty members and students enrolled in Saitama University.

  • It takes about one week to 10 days for books to arrive.
  • You need to come to the library to receive your books. In case you need to pay your private expense, please come to the reference counter (weekdays 9:00-12:15, 13:15-17:00). (In case you pay using a public fund, you can receive your books whenever the library is open.)
  • When you return books borrowed from other libraries, please give them directly to the staff at the library counter.

Saitama Prefectural Libraries, etc.
You can borrow materials held by Saitama Prefectural Libraries, Saitama Prefectural University Library (Information Center), and public libraries in Saitama Prefecture.
There is no charge for ordering books because they are delivered twice a week by vehicle.

You can search “埼玉県内図書館横断検索 (Cross search of libraries in Saitama Prefecture)” to find the library holdings in Saitama Prefecture.

Other university libraries
You can borrow materials held by libraries of universities all over the country.

  • The borrowing period and terms of use (such as use only within the library) differ depending on the library from which the book is borrowed.
  • You have to pay for the round-trip postage. (We will use Yu-Pack etc. to return the materials. The postage varies depending on the size and the distance, and it costs about 1,500 yen to 2,000 yen.)

You can search “CiNii Books” to find the holdings in other university libraries.
