Hong Kong Literature

Hong Kong Literature renovation project (Completed)

Project Scope:

The Hong Kong Literature Collection was established in 2002 with the generous donation by Prof. Lo Wai-luen (Xiao Si). It is located on the 1/F University Library. Since then the Collection has grown and expanded in depth and spectrum.  It has become a significant collection at CUHK and in Hong Kong, providing valuable primary materials to the academic community and supporting the research on Hong Kong literature, culture and society.  Over the years, Prof. Lo continues to donate unique items to enrich the collection, while some renowned authors also donated their works or manuscripts to the CUHK Library.  As the Collection gains reputation and trust, it attracts many local and overseas scholars.  At present, our manuscript collection includes those from Liu Yichang, Xi Xi, Ye Lingfeng , Lü Lun, Yu Kwang-chung, Dai Tian, etc. The newly renovated area serves as a hub, providing more space to showcase literary works of contemporary authors as well as exhibits covering the history and development of Hong Kong literature.
