What does this Library collect?

Formerly known as Asian Communication Resource Centre (ACRC), the Communication & Information Library is one of the subject libraries of NTU.

We house over 16,000 volumes of print collection supporting research and teaching in the areas of advertising, broadcasting, communication research, information studies, journalism, library science, media law and ethics, public relations and related topics. We are also home to an interesting archive of final year project creative works by the communication students.

Open to all NTU staff and students, the Communication & Information Library is also a place which regular exhibitions of student works are hosted and subject librarians actively collaborate with the WKWSCI and HASS community to organise book talks, library resources workshops and outreach activities.

Whenever you need specialist information resources or tailored professional services (such as library instruction, research support, scholarly communication services) or have any ideas of collaborative engagement, do come by and talk the subject librarians!
