Visiting the Library
The Main Library was established and began operating in 1977; with its unique design, the library, when observed from above, is shaped like the ancient Chinese character for "life", meaning "longevity". It has five stories. In order to better serve patrons throughout the campus, the University has established four other branch libraries: the Communication Library, the Commerce Library, the Social Sciences Library and the Institute of International Relations Library. The Communication Library is situated on the 3rd floor of the College of Communication, housing materials related to Mass Communications; the Commerce Library is located on the 4th floor of the College of Commerce, housing materials related to business and management; the Social Sciences Library can be found on the 1st & 2nd floors of the General Building of Colleges, mainly housing materials pertaining to the social sciences; the Institute of International Relations Library mainly housing material about the mainland Chinese and international affairs.
In addition, to strengthen its capacity of its research and information collection, the University established an independent facility with the same capability as the Library in October 1961, the Social Sciences Information Center, which also reports to the President of the University. In December 1992, the Regulations for establishing the Social Sciences Information Center were adopted, with the Curator of the Library simultaneously acting as the Center's Director, thus unifying the management and services of library resources in NCCU.
