The Lingnan University Library was named after the late benefactor Mr. Fong Sum Wood in 1998.

The Library is located in the Patrick Lee Wan Keung Academic Building of the Lingnan Campus. Starting from September 2005, in addition to the original first and second floors, two newly-constructed floors have been operating. The expansion allows more room for accommodating the constantly increasing resources. The new third floor provides additional study and computing space and a generous gift from Mr. Lee Hak Kan has enabled the Library to renovate and upgrade the Multimedia and Language Learning Centre on the second floor. Located on first floor of the Library, the Chiang Chen Information Commons has been set up to facilitate students and faculty to come together to do research and convert that research into new knowledge.

Since our beginning in 1968, the Library has grown to hold more than 545,000 volumes of books, bound journals and audio-visual materials. The core collections cover various areas of our liberal arts curriculum, including arts and humanities, social sciences, and business studies. In order to keep up with the speedy pace of technology advancement, the Library has introduced a wide range of electronic services, such as online full-text databases, CD-ROMs, wireless LAN and different types of automatic alert services.

Fong Sum Wood Library has long become the hub of academic activities in Lingnan. With the latest progression, we promise to provide better services for the accessing of knowledge on campus.
