As we continue our Soka lives online, here is how you can renew your library items from your location. Do not stress about managing your library items, we will work with you.
Library Services During Closure
Research assistance and tutorial session
Reference librarians are on stand-by. You can email or chat with them via Microsoft Teams.
Purchase request, Course Reserve request, and Research Instruction request
Please fill out the online forms or simply contact us.
You will continue to receive PDF files of periodical articles or book chapters via email, Teams, or Box. For print books, we will scan/copy the portion you need and deliver them to you.
Borrowing library items
Email us what you would like to borrow, and we will work with you to deliver the information you need.
Returning library items
You may return them by mailing to “Ikeda Library, Soka University of America, 1 University Drive, Aliso Viejo, CA 92656.” If you are unable to mail them back, please contact us; we will find a solution together.
