An Epicenter for Life Science Information Services

Kitasato Memorial Medical Library, which was established in 1937 in memory of the late Dr. Kitasato, the first dean of the School of Medicine, is currently known as the Shinanomachi Media Center. As one of Japan’s leading libraries on medical and related fields, the Center houses extensive collections and provides access to a variety of electronic resources. Since its establishment, the Center has opened its doors to off-campus researchers and healthcare workers. The Center also focuses on information literacy education, a prime example being its course for effectively utilizing electronic resources.
