Southern University College Shuxianglou Collection Room (书香楼)


             Johor Bahru Thow Teck Club had donated all their collections and fund to Southern University College on 8th October 2005. All the collections are placed in Shuxianglou Collection Room at Room 424 to 429 on the 3rd floor of the Main Building.


            The resources in Shuxianglou Collection Room include books, periodicals and newspapers. Most of the collections are in Chinese. The subjects of the books are mainly on language and literature, history, philosophy and arts. While most of the collections were published in China or Hong Kong around 1970 to 1980, some of them were published locally too.


            At the same time, the Bound Newspaper volume collections include those published in Malaysia and Singapore from 1970 to 1980, such as Sin Chew Jit Poh, Nanyang Siang Pau, Min Pao Daily, Shin Min Daily News, The China Press and The Straits Times. We provide Newspaper Request Service for those who are interested to use the newspaper.
