Accompanied by Professor Kenji Suzuki of the Department of International Relations and Professor Maiko Takeuchi of the Department of Music, nine university students visited and toured the library and archives Tuesday morning. The students were interested in the story of the Congregational Library, the American Board, Alpheus Hardy and Joseph Hardy Neesima. They viewed the bust of Mr. Hardy and took many pictures of the Reading Room and the Pratt Room.[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_original","fid":"485","attributes":{"alt":"students from Doshisha Women's College tour the library stacks","class":"media-image","style":"width: 200px; height: 133px; float: right; margin: 5px 0px 5px 10px;","title":"students from Doshisha Women's College tour the library stacks","typeof":"foaf:Image"}}]]

A highlight of their visit was being lead into the stacks which are normally closed to the public. They asked about the types of books in the collection and were impressed by the number of books and research materials on our shelves.
