Since January 29, the Main Library at Sookmyung Women's University has been providing Sookmyungians with access to its online book lending system. The system, newly implemented for students, operates in partnership between Academic Information Services Team and the online book provider Kyobo Bookstore. Sookmyunginas now about to borrow books from the Main Library during winter vacations without having to be physically on campus. With just access to a computer or a mobile device, Sookmyungians can leisurely access the online book lending system. To access the system on a PC, Sookmyungians must first log on to the Main Library website, but accessing the system on a mobile version, Sookmyungians must install the Kyobo E-book application and then search Sookmyung Women's University. The system stores over 100,000 E-books on the Kyobo E-library and they include novels, essays, and philosophy books. A Sookmyungian may borrow up to five books. The loan period is one week. In addition, the Main Library at Sookmyung also provides access to online books besides those offered by Kyobo Bookstore. The school has also started providing access to academic books from the publisher Wiley from January 1. The number of online books from Wiley is 2,800, which includes books from various fields. To access Wiley E-books, Sookmyungians must first visit the Main Library website and then search the keyword 'Wiley Online Books'. Kwon Doyoon, a system user said, "I don't live near the school, so it's not easy to borrow books from the Main Library, especially on days that I don't have classes. The new online book lending system, however, makes it much easier and more comfortable to borrow books. Still, I wish the loan period was longer than one week. It is shorter than the period of borrowing a paperback book. Also, it is somewhat annoying to have to create a separate library ID. Nevertheless, thanks to the online book lending system, I can now enjoy reading more conveniently." As Kwon states, thanks to the introduction of the online book lending system at Sookmyung, many Sookmyungians can now more comfortably do academic investigative research or find pleasure reading materials.
