Library Contributors & Donors 
 


In 2003, Professor Wang Gungwu donated more than thirty thousand volumes collection to Chinese Heritage Resource Centre. In September 2003, the centre was named “Wang Gungwu Library” in recognition of Professor Wang’s scholarship and significant contribution to the field of Chinese Overseas Studies. The Library which houses mainly resources on ethnic Chinese overseas subjects has also benefited from Professor Wang’s generous donation. Other scholars have donated smaller personal or family collections to the Library. The current focus of the library's acquisition program includes Chinese genealogical records, clan association publications, and documents relating to the former Nanyang University.

本馆原为华裔馆资料中心。二零零三年九月,王赓武教授捐赠三万多册书籍给资料中心。为感谢王教授的慷慨捐赠,同时也为彰扬王教授在海外华人学术研究领域的杰出贡献,华裔馆资料中心遂重新命名为王赓武图书馆。目前本馆藏书超过五万册,主要收藏关于海外华人研究的文献资源,同时也注重特种文献的收集,如早期教科书,线装书,族谱,校刊及宗乡会馆出版刊物等。
