At the end of March 2017, the library was renovated and the Multi-Plaza was opened. After the renovation, the first floor was used by many people, as a space for active learning and events. However, since last year, due to the effects of the COVID-19, we have been forced to close the library temporarily and change the way it is used, and this situation is still continuing.
We conducted a survey in order to get the opinions and requests regarding the facility setting of the library four years after the final renovation, the state of preparation of materials, , and services due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the result of the questionnaire survey, in addition to requests for materials and facilities, there are many complaints about the closure of the library due to the pandemic, and many services that were provided before the pandemic, especially the after-hours opening (open 24 hours).
We would like to consider and reflect about the contents of the questionnaire responses received this time in the library management. Thank you for your cooperation.
