Owing to a lack of decanting space in the Main Library and the tight project schedule, we are unable to move books out of the affected floors while the removal work is in progress.  Instead, we will securely wrap the bookshelves in protective sheets and only allow authorized contractors to access the work sites in accordance with the environmental and building legislation in Hong Kong.  As a result, lending services of the affected library collections have to be suspended during the closure dates indicated.

We understand that the temporary service suspension will inevitably bring inconvenience to library patrons.  To minimise this inconvenience, we strongly advise that you borrow the materials you need before the scheduled closure.  Requests for materials kept on the work sites will be filled as far as possible by interlibrary loans from other local/overseas libraries.  Items belonging to the affected floors should continue to be returned according to the due dates.  However, returned items will be stored in a special storage pending re-shelving and no loan service will be provided for them until re-opening of the affected floor.

A dedicated library webpage (http://lib.hku.hk/aaw) has been created to provide up-to-date progress of the above works.  Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused.  For inquiries, please contact us at 3917-2202 (Lending Services) or 3917-2215 (Interlibrary Loans).

Thank you very much for your tolerance to the above building works which will make the Main Library a better place for learning in future.

Mr Peter Sidorko

University Librarian
