Course Reserve/Printing Class Materials

Course Reserve

What are reserve materials? They are materials necessary for classes and seminars placed in a specified location in the Media Center for a specified period, at the request of faculty members. To ensure they are always available for use in the Media Center by students of the classes and seminars, these materials cannot be borrowed.

How to use

  • Written reserve materials are kept in a special collection on book shelves in the Reference Book section on the second floor.
  • Books are organized according to faculty member and class, and are free for perusal within the library .
  • Reserve material cannot be borrowed. Copies of the books are kept in the general collection (excluding some out-of-print material). If you wish to borrow material, take a copy from the general collection.

Be sure to return all material to its original place once you have finished using it.

About the Printing Service

  • This service is limited to the printing of materials prepared by Keio faculty members for their use in a Keio University class or research group. Only SFC faculty or staff may use this service.
  • The Shonan Fujisawa Media Center carries out the actual printing on behalf of the instructor. If you need to print materials in a hurry, you may use the self-service printers at the Media Center.
    The applicant takes full responsibility for the content and copyright conditions of the materials to be printed.
    Please refer to Article 35 of Japan's Copyright Law, quoted below.

Copyright Law Article 35

(Reproduction in schools or other educational institutions)
A person who teaches a lesson, and those who receive the lesson, in a school or other educational institutions (excluding, however, those institutions established for profit-making purposes) may, if and to the extent deemed necessary for use in the course of the lesson, reproduce a work already made public; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not apply in the case where such reproduction is likely to unreasonably prejudice the interests of the copyright holder in light of the type and the usage of the work as well as the number of copies and the manner of reproduction.
