Media Centers(Libraries)

The Media Centers (libraries) on the various campuses of the Keio system represent important information resources for students, faculty, and researchers. As a whole, they are considered to constitute one of the foremost academic information storehouses in the country. The combined libraries of the Keio Media Centers house more than 4.2 million books and publications. In October 2002, Keio University became the first East Asian institution to formally become a member of RLG (Research Libraries Group, Inc.). RLG Programs combined with OCLC in 2006, forming the largest non-profit organization devoted to the needs of libraries, archives and museums.  RLG Programs has more than 140 partner institutions <http://www.oclc.org/programs/partnership/roster.htm> around the world, including such institutions as Harvard, Yale, Oxford, Cambridge, Sydney, and Melbourne Universities.  At the Media Centers, OCLC’s comprehensive catalogue database (WorldCat <http://www.worldcat.org/>) is used to construct the catalogue database for the Media Center library system (KOSMOS).
