Yamanote Line Private University Library Consortium

The rapid changes in our educational and research environments have had a significant influence on university libraries, required them to change. To keep up with these changes, it is essential to provide access to a wider range of services, and this can no longer be done through a single university library. Thus, to remedy this situation, a consortium of private university libraries located along Tokyo's Yamanote railway line signed an agreement for mutual cooperation. This sparked a beginning for participants to consider and enact specific measures for improving access to information.
