The Library was established in 2009 and was subsequently named “Library in Memory of Mr. Lam Sing Kam” in appreciation of a generous benefaction earmarked by the wife of the late Mr. Lam for the development of the Library. Covering an area of over 16,000 sq. ft., the Library is located on the 4th floor of the Caritas Bianchi College of Careers (CBCC) campus.
The Library holdings extend over a broad spectrum of academic fields as diverse as Accounting, Business Management, Hotel Management, Marketing, Computer Sciences, Design, Nursing, Health Sciences, Social Sciences, Music, Early Childhood Education, Language and Literature as well as General Education. The Library collections feature materials in a variety of formats such as print books, e-books, print journals, e-journals, CDs and DVDs, thereby providing essential support for all academic programmes offered in the Institute / College.
At present, the Library houses more than 180,000 items, including around 73,000 print books, 62,000 print journal issues and 3,600 items of multimedia materials. The Library also provides online access to over 51,900 full-text e-journal titles and more than 57,800 e-books. Users may access the electronic resources anytime, anywhere.
The Library provides a comfortable and relaxing environment for study and reading purposes. Equipped with networked computers, Octopus-operated multifunction photocopiers / printers, audio-visual tools, self-study carrels and group study rooms, the Library complexes now have 20 PCs for public access and around 230 seating spaces. Users may opt for either the formal or the informal study zone. Whereas individual carrels along the glass walls can be used for formal, quiet study, the causal chairs in the informal sitting areas can be used for leisure reading. Users may also reserve the group discussion rooms for group study purposes.
The Library endeavours to provide users with scholarly resources and helpful services that support their learning, teaching and research needs.
