Bringing Science and Technology into the Future
The Information and Media Center for Science and Technology (hereinafter referred to as the "Media Center") was built in 1972 with a donation from Konosuke Matsushita, founder of Matsushita Electronics (now Panasonic), so its building is called Matsushita Memorial Library (now the main building of the Media Center). The Media Center cooperates and coordinates with the other six media centers on various Keio campuses for the collection development, storage, and delivery of library materials. The Media Center is one of the Japan's best and largest science and technology libraries, with a rich selection of science and technology books as well as journals. In recent years, the Media Center has been expanding its collection to support the students' advanced learning, and carrer/skill development. In addition to a large number of e-journals, the center provides access to many e-books, online databases and other electronic materials through its website. Library materials are also widely available to off-campus researchers. Besides promoting the migration from print materials to electronic resources, the Center also maintains and improves the campus's learning environments.
