圕 is one of the few standardized polysyllabic Chinese characters used in Mandarin, but it never gained widespread acceptance within China, where it is thought of as a Japanese kokuji. The character was also much more common in Japan, where it appeared in the name of library science journal 圕研究 (Toshokan Kenkyū).
