Student Debriefing Session for 2021 Chuo University and Hachioji City Library Joint Research

Based on a Comprehensive Collaborative Agreement signed by Chuo University and Hachioji City in April 2017, a research team (led by Professor Kenji Koyama) from the Department of Socio-Informatics, the Faculty of Letters, Chuo University, and the Hachioji City Library have been conducting joint research entitled "Research on Book Report and Library Usage Status," with the aim of improving library and library-related education in Hachioji City.

The research was temporarily suspended due to the spread of COVID-19 beginning in February 2020, but resumed in April 2021 under a partial revision to the "Collaborative Research Agreement." We are pleased that we were able to hold a student debriefing session for the fiscal year 2021 on January 25, 2022. At this session, Chuo University students reported the results of their research.
