[Publishing Seminar] Making Your Research Open in the Right Way (by Taylor and Francis)
2017-10-26 15:01 | News

When making your research Open Access, what are some key issues you need to be aware of? How do you share your work while maintaining research integrity?

Register Now!

Open Access is commonly referred to making the research articles freely available online, through either publishing in an OA journal ("Gold OA"), or self-archiving a copy of the manuscript in a depository ("Green OA"). Increasingly, funders, institutions and some journals are requiring openness in other aspects of the research workflow, like dataset or a data management plan. Within this new landscape of OpenScience, how as a researcher, do you navigate a path to openness especially dealing with sensitive issues with research integrity?

This talk will assist researchers in asking questions such as:

  • Why should I make my research Open Access?
    - Looking at the benefits to you, and your research in pursuing open options
  • How can I make my research Open Access?
    - Exploring options for making research open with integrity including: which versions of articles can be shared, sharing of data and datasets, and where they can be shared
  • What are the ethical concerns of being Open Access?
    - Providing information on re-use of Open content, peer review integrity, and ethical responsibilities for authors

New Library System and OneSearch Discovery Platform are live now!
2017-07-25 18:30 | News

On 17 July 2017, the PolyU Library and all UGC-funded university libraries successfully launched a single cloud-based Shared Integrated Library System (ILS) and OneSearch discovery platform to replace eight stand-alone library systems.

Enhancements on the New Library System

Embedded HKALL (Hong Kong Academic Library Link) and Interlibrary Loan
OneSearch allows users to seamlessly search and request print and shared electronic collections from all eight UGC-funded university libraries in one go.

Responsive Web Design
With a responsive web design, OneSearch is optimized for browsing and reading on mobile devices - be it a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.

Intuitive Search Interface
OneSearch has an easy to use, modern interface that brings you an improved user experience. You can easily navigate through search results on the "bento-box" style display grouped by major resource types, and further narrow down results using the “Refine my results” tab.

Flexible Renewal
If your loaned items are not recalled or requested by other patrons, you can renew any time up to the maximum loan period.

Seamless Single Sign-On (SSO)
With the new ILS, you can sign in with the University’s NetID and NetPassword to use Library services and public computers. Sign in once to SSO-enabled applications such as MyRecord, and you can use other Library services such as remote access to Library e-resources, HKALL, Interlibrary loans, etc. without signing in again. For more information about NetID and NetPassword, please visit this page.

Enhanced MyRecord
You can view all your checked out items in MyRecord, including those borrowed using your JULAC Borrower’s Card. You no longer need to manage different library accounts and passwords for each JULAC library. If you borrow books from other UGC-funded libraries in person, all your loan status will appear on your PolyU Library account.

If you have further questions on the new OneSearch, please feel free to contact our Research Helpdesk (3/F) in person, by phone at 2766-6863 or via email at
