After checking the e-mail, the library will inform the user of the balance ($) after purchase.

The corporate card can be used from April to February of the following year (because processing for March is not possible within the fiscal year).
Please purchase using a personal card in March. Payment is made using the same procedure as with cash purchases at the library and is made through the Finance Division.

When purchasing with PPV, please contact the library by e-mail regardless of your budget.  The data will be aggregated and used as a material for reviewing future purchases of foreign academic journals.

Please refrain from purchasing papers by PPV from journals to which the university subscribes. For the journals with subscription contracts, please check “Journal Search” on the library website.
