The Tokyo Institute of Technology Library holds special book displays every two to three months. Books are often selected by library supporters*, who create posters and flyers which include their comments on books in the spotlight.
Library supporters' chosen books were showcased on the first basement floor of Ookayama Library and the first floor of Suzukakedai Library.
The library has held an exhibition organized around the same theme every spring since 2011. The supporters made ad cards with comments on each book they recommended, which were then displayed together with the books and distributed as brochures.
The display covered books from a wide range of genres, including practical books which new students are likely to use during the academic year and other reading that may attract the attention of faculty, staff, and other visitors.
This exhibition displayed 40 books and DVDs at both the Ookayama and Suzukakedai libraries, which were selected by library supporters according to personal interests and knowledge associated with their majors. The subjects of selected items varied from the development of foods to the history of languages and biographies of scientists. The display effectively demonstrated the broad range of different works that the Tokyo Institute of Technology Library offers readers.
