Bringing Science and Technology into the Future
The Media Center for Science and Technology (hereinafter referred to as the "Media Center" or the "Library") was built in 1971 with a donation from Konosuke Matsushita, the founder of Matsushita Electronics (now Panasonic), thus the main building is called Matsushita Memorial Library. The Media Center cooperates and coordinates with other five Keio University libraries for 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 career/skill development. In addition to a large number of e-journals, the Library 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 Library also maintains and improves the campus's learning environments.
