Introduction (Open Library)

In order to help the users to relax and obtain more knowledge in a comfortable environment, we are providing various books/materials by installing small libraries inside the rest areas throughout the campus. The users can enjoy different types of books that match the concept/characteristics of each space. (culture/hobby/cartoons, etc.)

Introduction

  • Each open library ensures unrestricted free access to all users, but the materials cannot be taken outside the library.
