Welcome from the Library. We are looking forward to supporting your study and research with our extensive collections and full range of services.

In this edition of our newsletter, we highlight a prominent collection we have in our Library. The Chinese Overseas Collection which covers rich research materials on Chinese immigrants in various countries from the 19th century to the present day was established in 2002 from holdings of the Overseas Chinese Archives the library received from the Chinese Overseas Studies Centre of CUHK.

With the donation of books and research materials from Professor Wai-luen Lo (Xiao Si), CUHK Library established the Hong Kong Literature Collection in 2002 by creatively linking researchers' personal collections with the Library's resources. Over the years, the Library has continuously received generous donations from various authors, scholars and the general public. At present, the collection contains more than 40,000 volumes that include books and literary periodicals of the New Literature published in Hong Kong in the early 20th century, as well as manuscripts, letters, photos, awards and prizes donated by writers.

What do you do at the Library?

I joined the CUHK Library in May 2022 as the User Services Librarian. My role is to facilitate the library users using all the available library services and maintain the University Library building as a safe and welcoming place for the users.
