Conditions of No Charge
You do not need to pay for document delivery requests after April 1st, 2020, under the following conditions because the aid budget covers the expenses.
  • Applicants must make a request of document delivery through the library website after login with their SSO-KID, not through written applications.
  • Purpose of using the documents must be for research, educational or learning activities at Kyushu University.
  • Deliveries must be from other campuses, not your campus. ※1
  • Amount of expense must be 5,000 yen or less per document including tax. ※2

Aid budgets for document delivery expense change each fiscal year. Even in the middle of a year there might be a change such as cutting off the aid due to the budget overrun, or limiting the use of some members depending on their usage amount.

※1 If the library at your campus has the material and it’s available, we don’t accept a document delivery request. Please come to the library and make a photocopy by yourself. Exceptionally, only when you pay the expense by university budget which is allocated to you, we accept your photocopying request for materials at your campus, but it’s not covered by the aid budget.
※2 Note that you have to pay all amounts of expense if they are more than \5,000. For example, when a document delivery costs \6,000, you must pay \6,000 in full by your own.

Before Placing Your Request

  • Reproduction in libraries is subject to legal limitation because the author has the exclusive right to reproduce his/her work.
    • An article in a journal may not be photocopied, unless a considerable period of time has passed since its publication. "Considerable period of time" means the period of time until publication of a next issue or 3 months after publication of the issue.
    • A book may not be entirely photocopied.  In case of the collected papers, each paper may not be entirely photocopied. Less than half pages are OK.
    • An applicant may use only a single reproduction for the purpose of research or study, and may not reproduce it again or distribute it regardless of whether it is compensated.

How to Pay

The following is the explanation in case that the aid budget does not cover your expenses and you have to pay them in full by your own, at such times as the materials of the library at your campus are photocopied.
 
University budget
We accept only research grants given by Kyushu University as "University budget". Fill the budget information in an application form. Once you fill the information, it is saved in your account information so that you can select it next time.
We process the payment by your budget on the first business day of each month for the document delivery of the prior month. If you want to use outside funds, please pay by private expense and then proceed with the reimbursement at the accounting section of your department.
University budget (by proxy)
Select "University budget (by proxy)" in an application form, and fill the applicant and budget information in advance if you are a staff member who often requests document deliveries on behalf of faculty. Once you fill the information, it is saved in your account information so that you can select it next time. Students at School of Medicine and Graduate School of Medical Sciences can also be proxies if faculty permits. We process the payment by the budget you designated on the first business day of each month for the document delivery of the prior month. If you are a student of other schools at Kyushu University and want to be a proxy, you have to apply for document deliveries at the library desk in written form sealed by a faculty member who have a university budget.
