About the library


The China University of Science and Technology's library is an eight-floors building with a space of 3300 square meters. The Library offers services to students and faculty according to the needs of their research and studies. The library maintains a carefully selected collection of printed and non-printed materials. There are approximately 300,000 volumes, 700 periodicals, 10 newspapers, and 3000 media materials. Since the fast development of the internet, we have been actively expending the electronic collection such as e-books and e-journals to enrich the virtual library's contents for meeting the user's needs in electronic learning environment.

The classification of Chinese and Japanese materials is according to the New Classification Scheme for Chinese Libraries, while the western materials are classified by the Dewey Classification System.
