Many of the library resources or services require authentication. These include online renewal or requests, accessing the e-forms, remote access to the electronic resources and others.
Since 16 January 2006, the University Libraries has changed to a ONE login authentication environment.
HKU staff & students and HKU SPACE staff will login with their HKU Portal UID and PIN. This is the same as the HKU account names and passwords. For new students, the HKU Portal UID and PIN are distributed upon their admission registration. Staff members who do not have a HKU accounts can apply for one from the Information Technology Services. Find out more about HKU Portal UID and PIN.
Other library users (SPACE students, Alumni, Circle of Friends, Distance Learners in Mainland China and JULAC users) should login with their Library Card numbers and PINs. First time users can set up the PIN here. The PIN is alphanumeric and can range from 5 to 15 digits. Users who have forgotten the PIN should go to the Enquiries Counter on 2/F of the Main Library. Our staff will clear the old PIN so that you can set up a new one on your own.
