Using e-books and e-journals

    • E-journals and e-books have off-campus connections are indicated an icon of "via Off-Campus access service" or "Free".
    • Please check the part that shows "from 1987/10/01 to 2000/10/31".
      You cannot view articles that are outside the range of contracted years.
  • The University of Tokyo OPAC
    • You can search e-books and e-journals using OPAC.
    • E-journal & E-book Portal does not allow you to search e-books by author's name, but OPAC allows you to search by author's name. However, e-books have the disadvantage that the amount of information may be large or small, depending on the individual title. (For example, there is no author name data or publisher data.) Therefore, there may be cases where a hit cannot be found by author's name. In such cases, you can use e-books by following links from paper books or journals (with some exceptions).

  • Japan Knowledge Lib

To use electronic resources without disruption

  • Excessive downloading may result in the suspension of access to e-resources for the entire UTokyo network and it may not recover during the remote study period.
