Abstract

In the 21st century, with increasing enrollment in higher education, the government invests more in education. However, discordance between population growth and land use has become more intense during city development, and land for campuses has become limited. Thus, in order to seek for better natural environment and larger space, university campuses are compelled to shift to suburbs. Suburbanization is the main trend of universities; most colleges and universities nationwide start building their new campuses in the outskirts of cities. To meet faculty and student needs for teaching, learning, research, and literature on new campuses, and to perform better in assessments of educational administrative departments, a new round of library construction boomed. Of course, economic growth and technological development provide strong material foundation and technical support for the construction of academic libraries.
