Geocache Description:


澳門中央圖書館 / Macao Central Library / Bibliotecas Central de Macau

 

The library was formerly the National Library established in 1895. Situated in St. Augustine’s Church, it originally belonged to Liceu de Macau (Liceu Secondary School). The Macao Central Library underwent severe challenges throughout its development. From 1917 to 1929, it successively moved to St. Joseph's Seminary, Hotel Bela Vista, Shelter for the Disabled at Tap Seac and Leal Senado Building (currently known as IAM Building). Settling there for a longer period, in 1983 the library was relocated to the current site at Avenida do Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeida, where it has gradually developed.

Today, the services of Macao Central Library are diversified. In addition to providing basic services such as library card application, photocopying, access to the Official Gazette of the Macao Special Administrative Region, book lending and access to newspapers and periodicals, the library also provides a microfilm reading service, Macao information references, back-issue newspapers and periodicals, broadband internet access, electronic news, electronic databases and other services.

To cater for readers’ needs, the interior of the library was refurbished in early 2007, where space and seats for readers were added, furniture was renewed and amenities were introduced. The two-storey main library currently occupies an area of 1,371 sq. m., with seating capacity for about 271 plus a collection of approximately 92,289 volumes (including approximately 31,764 volumes of Macao Information Collection), 672 rolls of microfilms, 4,069 audiovisual materials, 94 newspaper titles and 610 magazine titles. Generally, the collection is mainly comprised of information technology books, English and Portuguese books as well as Macao information and historical literature about Portugal in the Far East.

前身為澳門國立圖書館,成立於1895年,初期附屬於利宵中學,館址設於聖奧古斯定修道院。該館發展歷程艱辛,於1917年至1929年間先後搬遷至聖約瑟修院、峰景酒店大樓、塔石殘疾人收容所及市政廳(市政署前身)大樓,然後經歷了一段較長時間。及至1983年,遷至荷蘭園大馬路一幢古典建築物內,遂後發展壯大至今。

現在澳門中央圖書館的服務已趨多元化,除了提供基本的服務如讀者證辦理、資料影印、查閱《澳門特別行政區公報》、圖書資料借閱及報刊閱覽外,還增加了微縮資料查閱、澳門資料參考諮詢、逾期報刊閱覽、寬頻上網、電子化新聞資訊、電子資源數據庫等服務。

為滿足讀者的需求,該館於2007年初進行了內部改善工程,擴大使用空間及座位數量、重置傢具及增加閱覽設施等。兩層面積共1,371平方米,閱覽座位約271個,藏書約92,289冊(包括澳門資料館藏約31,764冊),縮微資料672卷,影音資料4,069件,各地報紙94種,各類雜誌610種。整體上,其館藏以資訊科技類圖書、英葡語書籍、澳門資料及葡萄牙在遠東的歷史文獻為主。
