EXCITING NEW COLLECTION
Since 2022, the library has been privileged to host the Kitsiri Malalgoda collection, an archive of nearly 700 books in English and Sinhala oriented around Buddhism and Sri Lankan history. The books represent the generosity of the late Professor Kitsiri Malalgoda from the University of Auckland who was a leading figure in the study of Buddhism in Sri Lanka. This has now been catalogued, and has been shelved according to LC classification, rather than as one physical group. A full list of items is, however, available from this link, and books from the collection will appear in relevant search results.
