IUJ Library Donates Books to Visayas State University, Philippines

IUJ’s library, housed in Matsushita Library and Information Center (MLIC), is one place in Japan that holds getting added to collection, duplicated course reserves and unused items are donated regularly under a program sponsored by JASPAL (Japan Association of Private University Libraries) since 2008. Recently, about 75 volumes were donated to Visayas State University where one of alumni works as a professor. We believe that our resources will be useful for students at his university.
