Library Book Donations

(September 2014/Issue 33)


The Library has been the fortunate recipient of valuable collections of gift items from many well-wishers. Two notable collections are highlighted here:


Donations from Professor Alex Cheung Kwong Yue

Comprising over 2,000 volumes of scholarly books and journals in a wide selection of subjects, including Chinese language & literature, history, art, philosophy and archeology, these books provide a wealth of resources for Chinese studies. Currently most of Professor Cheung’s books are held in the Special Collections Room while some are in the Circulation Collection.

Donations from William Ip Wai Kwok 

Another valuable collection of materials is from William Ip Wai Kwok, faculty member of the Department of Translation. Among the donated books are many unique items, including some very specialized dictionaries. These books have no doubt enriched the Library’s collection of materials in translation studies.

Happy Birthday to HSMC Library

Happy Birthday to HSMC Library

Do you know that the Library is celebrating its First Birthday today?

The Library moved to its current location in Block A on 12 Sept 2012. The small team of library staff had to help to move over 30,000 volumes of books and multimedia items to its new home. Five days later on 17 Sept 2012, the Library opened its doors to the College for the first time.

Looking back on our wonderful year, here are photos of some memorable times:
