Updates for Graduate and Special Borrower Library Card Holders
In order to ensure that there is sufficient distance between study seats, the Library was reopened on 4 May 2020 with 72% fewer seats while making provisions for PolyU students taking the University’s 1st round of On-Campus Examination.
PolyU Library consistently has the highest usage among UGC-funded university libraries and is heavily used by our students. Therefore, after the completion of the Summer Term and the 2nd round of On-Campus Examinations in mid-August, the Library will then review the feasibility of resuming access for Graduate and Special Borrower Library Card Holders. The Library will also continuously monitor the situation of the pandemic and whenever possible, will come up with probably arrangements to accomodate access for Graduate and Special Borrower card holders as soon as practicable.
Special Arrangement to Opt for Partial Refund of Fees
Graduate and Special Borrower Library Card Holders who no longer require the use of Library services can opt to request for a pro-rated refund of fees. Pro-rated refund will be calculated based on the period in which the Library was closed from 11 Nov 2019 till the card expiry date printed on the Library Card (both dates inclusive). Details of how to request for refunds will be announced by early June.
If you would like to continue using our services, after the access has been resumed, the Library will then extend the validity of Library Cards based on the number of days the Library was physically inaccessible to Graduate and Special Borrower Library Card Holders.
Return of Borrowed Items
To allow more PolyU students to access Library collection, we encourage borrowed items to be returned at your convenience via the Library’s 24-hour Book Drop located outside the campus turnstiles on Podium Level (near public footbridge towards Exit A Hung Hom MTR Station).
