2018-08-01 09:17 | News

“Virtual Reality Contest: Stories from ancient China” was the very first VR contest organized by the Pao Yue-Kong Library and Department of Electronic and Information Engineering. A series of cultural talks and workshops equipped the students with skills to embark on VR creation. Through the competition, the students fostered deep learning about VR technology, further appreciation of stories from ancient China and also learnt to work closely with team members from different faculties.

The award ceremony was held on 18 July 2018 in the Digital Visualisation Room (i-Space, 4/F). 17 groups participated in the contest which ended in June 2018. A total of 6 teams won prizes in the contest. Congratulations to our winners!

A better Library for you - Summer Improvement Works
2018-06-19 17:37 | News


New quiet study areas on 4/F and 5/F

We are renovating the South Wings of Levels 4 and 5 to bring you a well-lit, modern environment in which to conduct quiet study. The new study space will be ready by early Semester 1.

Affected areas: The 4/F and 5/F South Wing reading rooms are temporarily closed, and lift access to 4/F and 5/F is available via designated elevator(s) only, until the start of Semester 1 for AY2018/19.

A new Enquiry Counter on P/F

Effective 3 July 2018, a new Enquiry Counter providing enquiry and research help services will open on P/F, next to the Loan & Return Counter.

Now you can borrow and return Library books, ask questions, and get directions  all from the same convenient location on P/F.

To help you navigate the 3/F Research Enhancement Centre (REC), we have installed:

  • A phone you can use to get assistance from our Library Staff
  • Better self-service arrangements at the computer workstations, research carrels and printers

If you are working on the 3/F, in-person help is still available at two nearby counters:

  • The 3/F Multimedia Commons Counter (North Wing)
  • The P/F Enquiry Counter (just one floor down)

Affected areas: We will no longer operate the Research Help Desk on 3/F after its relocation to P/F.

Access to all our books, even while renovations are in progress!

Books previously housed on 4/F and 5/F South Wing will be temporarily moved during renovations, but they are still available for borrowing.

If you need a book in the affected call number range (A-G, HF-K), just approach our staff at the P/F Loan & Return Counter and we will retrieve it for you.

Books will be returned to their 4/F and 5/F locations when the renovations are complete.

Affected areas: The Group Study Zone 1 & 2 on G/F are partly occupied to accommodate the displaced books. The Connect Place and Project Rooms (L019b to L019e) in the Group Study Zone 1 are also closed.

In addition, we will be undergoing the following maintenance work:

Repairs to external wall finishes of Library building

Façade. Our façade will be undergoing some repairs until 26 August 2018. This work is being overseen by our university’s Facilities Management Office.

Affected areas: The front entrance to the Library is closed for the duration of the exterior maintenance works. Scaffolding will be visible along the building façade.

During these summer improvement works, things may get a bit noisy at the Library. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause. We will do our best to shorten the duration of noisy work in order to minimize disturbance.

Please bear with us as we create a better Library for you!
