Overview of SPPM Library
The SPPM library was officially open for service in October 2000 with donations from well-known Hong Kong lawyers, Mr Yu Ruichao and Ms Zheng Nizhi. Through continuing efforts, the library has established a modest but adequate collection of printed and electronic materials in various disciplines related to public policy and management. It aims at providing high-quality, efficient, and timely services for teaching and academic research.
At present, the library covers an area of more than 400 square meters which provides 43 seats. Its collections include nearly 18,000 English books, 37,500 Chinese books, 4000 graduate dissertations and over 110 Chinese and English newspapers and periodicals. The database collects statistical yearbooks of all provinces, autonomous regions, municipalities as well as teaching materials, research reports and internal documents.
The library also receives donation books and professional literature from the World Bank, the Asia Foundation, the Kennedy School of Government and other long term partners. At the same time, the library has benefited from donations from individuals such as Prof. Don E. Kash of George Mason University, Prof. Masahiko Aoki of Stanford University, and many other faculty and alumni.
