Library User Survey 2017 – Survey Results

Published by at 10:38 am under Breaking News

Thanks to the overwhelming responses of over 4,400 patrons, our user survey was completed in March 2017 with an abundant amount of useful data. Apart from identifying performance gaps in different service areas, the data has helped us explore some patron behaviours and needs to facilitate our planning of future developments as well as to improve our services.

The results and key finding are available at http://lib.hku.hk/survey2017/.

Footprints: 90 Years of the School of Chinese, HKU

Footprints: 90 Years of the School of Chinese, HKU

In collaboration with The University of Hong Kong School of Chinese, the University Archives, the University Museum and Art Gallery, and the Libraries, the Main Library is pleased to present FOOTPRINTS: 90 Years of The School of Chinese, HKU Exhibition at the 2nd Floor Atrium/Exhibitions Area of the Main Library from 12 October 2017 to 3 November 2017.

“Established in 1927, the School of Chinese at HKU has for 90 years been dedicated to the study of the core values and ideals of the Chinese tradition and to the meeting of Chinese and Western cultures. Through the efforts of many trailblazers and their successors, the School has become a leading international centre for research and education in Chinese language, literature, history, and translation.

On the exciting occasion of our 90th anniversary we felt honour-bound to put together this exhibition with the aim of reviewing the past while looking forward to the near and distant future.  While this exhibition would not be possible without the School’s remarkable academic achievements, its intention is rather to display articles related to individual lives and sentiments ¾ facets of the school that have been unknown but to the privileged few. The exhibit includes personal and official correspondence in regard to China and the West, items from social exchanges, as well as student assignments and sundry other administrative documents.  They were all unassuming articles in their own era, but have since become precious relics and works of art and trace the passage of 90 years of the School’s life. Indeed, the years have touched them only to enrich them.”1

 

足迹:香港大學中文學院九十年

 

香港大學中文學院創始於一九二七年,一直秉承傳統,致力於延續中華文化研究、促進中西文化交流。九十年來,經全體師生努力,學院成為國際舉足輕重的學術重鎮。

欣逢九秩喜慶,兢業自勵,學院特舉辦是次活動,回顧傳統,展望前景。是次展覽不在羅列豐碩的學術成果,而展示較少為人關注、日常生活及個人情懷一面。展品包括中外書函、酬酢物事、課業文件、學籍記錄等;當年閒品,今天都成了珍貴文物及藝術傑作,也見證了學院九十年來的足迹。

Main Library and Medical Library Renovation Projects

The Main Library’s ground floor and part of the second floor will be renovated into the Think Tank and the Learning Hub, respectfully.

The transformation of the ground floor will include a Breakout and Leisure space leading into the Think Tank with its expansive study areas and discussion room.

The 2nd floor Atrium/Exhibition area, the seating carrels facing the Main Building and the Knowles building, and adjacent study rooms will be renovated into the Learning Hub. The HUB will consist of four zones off the main entrance, the Reading Corridor, Idea Corner, Multi-purpose Area, and the Innovation Centre. All five zones will encompass the WOW Factor located beneath the existing ceiling atrium.

With the completion of these two renovations, the overall seating capacity of the 2 floors will rise from 193 to 318.

Two webpages were created to help provide information, phases and architectural images on the renovations and their progress, http://lib.hku.hk/mltt and http://lib.hku.hk/lhub.

 

The Yu Chun Keung Medical Library was opened in January 2002.  After logging in over 15 years of active usage, what was then a state-of-the-art facility has become somewhat dated. In light of the continuing mission of the Library to serve the curriculum, research, continuing education, and patient care needs of the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, we have decided to upgrade the G/F of the library into a technology-rich, flexible and collaborative learning space by creating and reorganizing spaces for new facilities or zones.

Additional information, construction phases and images can be found at http://lib.hku.hk/mlr.

Library Services will be Business as Usual and of course, there will be the inevitable construction noise.

I hope you will tolerate the temporary inconvenience that the construction will generate in order to further improve our Main Library and Medical Library.

 

Thank you very much.

Professors Ma Kiam and Ma Meng: An Exhibition in Celebration of the 90th Anniversary of The School of Chinese

Professors Ma Kiam and Ma Meng: An Exhibition in Celebration of the 90th Anniversary of The School of Chinese

In collaboration with the School of Chinese of The University of Hong Kong and The University of Hong Kong Libraries, the Main Library will present Professors Ma Kiam and Ma Meng: An Exhibition in Celebration of the 90th Anniversary of The School of Chinese Exhibition at the 2nd Floor Atrium/Exhibitions Area of the Main Library from 18 September 2017 to 8 October 2017.

“The School of Chinese of The University of Hong Kong was founded in 1927 by scholars who dedicated years of their lives to cultivate the learning of the Chinese language and to foster cultural exchange between the East and the West.  Through the early Scholars’ immense efforts and commitment to their cause, the School has made important progress in many aspects of teaching and research in the past 90 years and is recognized as an internationally-renowned institution for the teaching and research on Chinese language and culture. 2017 marks the 90th anniversary of the School’s establishment and in honour of two of our distinguished former faculty members, Professor Ma Kiam and Professor Ma Meng, the School has organized an exhibition to celebrate their achievements and to also showcase the School’s proud history and its many contributions to Chinese education in Hong Kong.

Professor Ma Kiam and Professor Ma Meng served as Head of School respectively during the early to mid-twentieth century and their tenures as Head of School are recognized by the academic community to be instrumental to the progress made in Chinese education in Hong Kong and the School’s various achievements.”1
