About Us


The Handa Library is a public research library at The University of Cambodia (UC) and is so named in recognition of Dr. Haruhisa Handa’s contributions to both The University of Cambodia and the nation Between 2010 and 2011, a committee of UC Executive members and library staff members started work on updating the library resources, including the creation of the UC e-Library and an online catalogue of the library’s collection. In late October 2011, The Handa Library relocated to UC’s new campus facilities in Sangkat Toek Thla and was housed in two large rooms on the first floor of the campus building. The University also placed 30 computers into The Handa Library as a part of the UC e-Library. The Handa Library is considered to be one of the best libraries in Cambodia, with a collection of over 65,000 books, periodicals, magazines, and newspapers. It is open to students, faculty, and the general public from 7:30 a.m – 8:30 p.m. on the weekdays and 7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on the weekends, except holidays. The Handa Library is a great place for reading, conducting research, and doing homework, and the UC e-Library provides access to free, high-quality academic digital resources to students, faculty and staff, and members of the public.
