Welcome from the Director

  • Dear students:

    Congratulations on your entrance to Fudan University! Welcome to Fudan University Library! In the years to come, the library will be an important place for you to study, research and work. I hope you will like it.

    Fudan University Library has an excellent collection of resources and is one of the top domestic libraries.  The printed collections of the library total 5.7 million volumes, and we also have 621 databases that cover various areas. These collections will meet your needs for professional, scientific research, and leisure reading. You can swim freely in the sea of books and receive knowledge here!

    Fudan university library has gone through a hundred years of journey. After a hundred years of hard work and hardship, you will see that a medical library integrating wisdom and humanity has risen up in Fenglin campus and is opening its doors to welcome you! In the next few years, the new comprehensive library of the Handan campus will also be built, and the library of the Jiangwan campus will be renovated. So, you may feel that the main campus library facilities are old and that our reading rooms are not spacious. This is only temporary. In a few years Fudan University library will have a new look.

    When you get into college, you need to learn and explore more actively. Finding needed information in this voluminous literature is dependent upon your information sensitivity and literature retrieval ability. The Fudan University librarians will always be here to help you and to provide more and more powerful support for teaching, scientific research, and academic disciplines. The library will also hold various activities at irregular intervals, such as lectures, training courses, exhibitions and so on. Please pay attention to the notices posted on the library website, wetchat and blog.

    On behalf of all the staff of the library, I’d like to welcome you to the library. Please feel free to come to the library, know it, understand it, and love it.

    I hope that the library can be your mentor in your future study.
