Q1: How can I access the HKU Libraries?

Q2: When I access some of the Libraries web pages, it prompts me for a HKU Portal UID / Library card number and PIN. What is this?

Q3: What are the Libraries opening hours?


A1: A valid HKU Student/Staff Card will enable you to visit the Libraries. HKU Alumni and eligible HKU SPACE students can apply for a library card. Members of the public wishing to access the library resources can apply for a Circle of Friends membership. Find out more at HKU Libraries Homepage > User Information.



A2: HKU staff, SPACE staff, and students should login with their HKU Portal UID and PIN.  Other patrons (SPACE students, Alumni, Circle of Friends, distance learners in Mainland China and JULAC members) should login with their library card number and PIN.



A3: Library hours vary during the year, with longer hours during term time. The prevailing opening hours are posted on the Libraries Homepage > Hours.
