JULAC Library Card

What is a JULAC Library Card?

Eligible PolyU staff and students can apply for a Joint University Librarians Advisory Committee Library Card (JULAC Library Card) to access other UGC-funded libraries.

Some UGC-funded libraries implement limited access periods during times of high library use (e.g. examination periods) when access of JULAC Library cardholders is not allowed. Users are advised to consult individual libraries' webpages for update information of opening hours.
