Checked out books must be returned on or before the due date.
- All materials with loan periods of 15 days or more can be returned to any of the HKU Libraries. For example a Medical Library book on 30-day loan can be returned via the Main Library.
- Items on short loans (14 days or less) such as AV materials, journals, and course reserves have to be returned to the service point from which they were checked out.
Book Drop Service
Book drops and automated book returns are available at the entrance of selected libraries. However, the following materials must be returned to the service point from which they were checked out:
- AV materials
- Items from Interlibrary loans, UGC Libraries, and HKALL items
For items cleared every day at opening time, the return date will be adjusted to the previous working day. The library will not be responsible for damages or loss of materials in book drops. Overdue books are subject to fines.
