Migration to new Library System and HKALL book requesting

Published by at 10:39 am under Breaking News

On 3rd July 2017, all eight UGC-funded university libraries will adopt a shared integrated library system (ILS) and discovery system to replace eight stand-alone library systems. The new shared ILS will allow patrons to search, request, and access collections from the eight libraries seamlessly. More information is available here:lib.hku.hk/newils/index.html.

To facilitate the implementation of our new shared ILS, please take note of the important dates affecting HKALL book requesting:

Monday 5th June Last day to request for HKALL items
Tuesday 6th June – Sunday 3rd  July Temporary suspension of HKALL request service. Interlibrary Loans (ILLiad) service is available to eligible patrons during the interim period
Thursday 15th June Last day to return HKALL items
Monday 3rd July New shared ILS goes into operation
