With a planned total capacity of 1.2 million volumes, the Library opened in October 1991 with a collection of approximately 100,000 items of printed materials and more than 30 electronic databases. Approximately 40% of the book collection is in the humanities and social sciences. The online library catalogue provides unified access to books, journals, media resources, electronic publications, and - via international telecommunication links - libraries and databases throughout the world. All terminals and computers in the library will form part of a campus-wide network that will make the Library's database accessible from every part of campus.
