    Printed Collection

    The OUHK library has an extensive collection of printed and multimedia items. Books are classified by the Library of Congress Classification Scheme and arranged on shelves by the call number found on the spine on the book. Materials in different languages are inter-shelved on shelves.

    The collection at the Stanley Ho Library covers most of the subjects to serve the learning and teaching needs at the Main Campus and the Jockey Club Institute of Healthcare.
