Message from the Library Director

Sitting in the heart of the city of Shenzhen by the side of the South China Sea, is Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), a new and innovative higher education institution, which aspires to become a top-tier international university that excels in interdisciplinary research, nurturing innovative talents and delivering new knowledge to the world.

 The library, as the center of scholarly communication and academic pursuit at SUSTech, is dedicated to serve the university’s community with excellence as described in four frames: a place conducive to learning, a collection serving vigorous scholarly pursuit, services to meet various demands and innovation facilitated by technology.

 Jorge Luis Borges, the famous Argentine writer said, “I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library”. My colleagues and I are determined to build that Paradise and firmly believe we will get support from every member of the SUSTech community in such endeavors, resulting in not only a library, but a university which will help us reach beyond our imaginations.
