The library of Zhejiang Yuexiu University of Foreign Languages (ZYUFL) was founded in 1984, and in 2001 it was renamed as Hongshu Library to commemorate Mr. Shao Hongshu, the founder of the university. The library with two branches in the two campuses of ZYUFL covers a total floor area of 28,814 m2, and the branch in Jinghu Campus, 18,915 m2 large, was established at the end of 2015. At present, there are several departments in the library, including Literature Resource Collection Department, Circulation Services Department, Information Technology Department and Office, with a staff of 27, among which, 10 have received their master degrees, 14 with bachelor degrees and more than 14 with intermediate and senior professional titles. We have been upholding our library operation concepts, i.e., emphasizing internal management, establishing external image, taking an down-to-earth attitude in daily work and providing sincere services, and meanwhile we also give full play to the basic security role of literature information resources in university teaching, research and social services. We aim to develop a literature resources system with optimized quality, distinctive characteristics and reasonable structures and strive to create a professional, orderly and harmonious library for private university.

 

By the end of September 2015, our library has collected literature in 10 languages, with a total collection of over 2.66 million books. Among them, there are 1.64 million paper books (including 1.59 million books in Chinese and 50,000 books in foreign languages), more than 1,000 kinds of Chinese and foreign periodicals, and more than 1.02 million e-books. The library also has access to 27 Chinese and foreign language databases and it has compiled a database with local characteristics of Shaoxing. Our library collection encompasses some ancient books, such as Siku Quanshu (also known as the Complete Library in Four Sections), Zizhi Tongjian (also known as the Comprehensive Mirror in Aid of Governance) and the Twenty-four Histories, etc., and the collection of books ranges from various disciplines such as literature, economy, management and arts. With such a rich collection, it forms a literature resources security system that can meet the needs of undergraduate education and research in the university.

 

We implement an open management model with an integration of collection, circulation and reading. In March 2014, we began to adopt Huiwen Literature Information Service System as the library management system and comprehensively realized computer management of various library businesses in the network environment. We have 24-hour self-study rooms, and the maximum weekly opening hours for these rooms at the main service areas are as long as 95.5 hours, and resources are available online for access 24-hour every day. Other services such as borrow/renew/return agent service, new book notification, information service, special search service, literature delivery service, reader training, subject librarian service and classroom embedded information technology service (one-hour lecture) are also available. Modern consultation service platforms for the library are also in place, including our official WeChat public platform, Tencent microblogging and Sina microblogging, which make it possible for us to interact with our readers at any time and at any place. We adopt OPAC search system to retrieve catalogues of books and journals, and with ID login, our readers can check information such as their personal loans, online booking, renewal, etc.

 

With the goal of developing the university into a prestigious private university providing skills-based undergraduate education with an international dimension, we will strive to achieve steady development in such aspects of literature resources and information technology, professional level and service quality as well as management efficiency and team culture, comprehensibly promote the capabilities and levels of teaching, research and discipline construction services of teachers and students in our university, and meanwhile strive to serve the local community.
