Justin Begley Library

Justin Begley was the first international student who in 1987 traveled from Australia to Cyprus to study at the College of Tourism and Hotel Management.  After finishing his studies, he was employed as the first librarian of the College.  In order to honour him the library was named after him.

The Justin Begley Library of the College of Tourism and Hotel Management operates as a lending library for both faculty and students.  It is a quiet, peaceful, and ideal place for students to use reference books, periodicals, magazines and journals during their study time.

Students and faculty can borrow books, search the Cyprus Documentation Centre, go through an updated collection of journals and magazines, and meet for group projects.

While studying at the College of Tourism, students will probably spend more time in the Library than in any other part of the College.  With this in mind, a wide range of services are available to help students with their course work and examinations.


Library Hours

The College library opening hours are 09:00 – 17:00, Monday to Friday. Upon request the library can also be made available on Tuesdays and Thursdays up to 22:00. The library is closed on weekends and Public Holidays. ​

Library Holdings

The library, (with over 10,000 items), is specialized with a very good collection of books, periodicals and audio visual aids on tourism, hospitality operations as well as Business, Management and Information Technology. The “Cyprus Tourism Documentation Center” is a specialized section of the library in Cyprus Tourism.

This information includes historical and cultural data, tourism statistics, and annual reports from different organizations, videotapes, and other useful materials. The Cyprus Documentation Center is updated on a regular basis.
