The Library supports the University's teaching and research in science, engineering, business and management, as well as humanities and social sciences. It is also a hub for intellectual and cultural exploration, and various types of collaboration and partnership.

The library is a five-storey building, centrally located on campus of the University. Apart from reading tables, study carrels and media carrels for individual use, rooms for various purposes (e.g. group study, media viewing, seminar and presentation, etc.), e-classrooms for instructional purposes as well as a Learning Commons providing a technology-rich environment for active learning are also available.

In addition to over 700,000 print volumes and a large collection of media resources, the Library provides access to more than 35,000 electronic and print journals, a large number of e-books, databases, and other digital information resources.

The Library's participation in academic library consortiums and international cooperative programs enhances information access and opens borrowing privileges to library collections at other academic and research universities. It is a member of JULAC, HKALL, RAPID, OCLC, SPARC, CONSER and NACO.
