Users perceive academic librarians as playing a role in issues of acquisition, description, curation, preservation of print and digital materials. But I think increasingly, beyond those functions, we're also seeing some very challenging roles in the library. There are a lot of growing areas in the library. We are applying digital transformation by using digital tools, such as AI, IoT and data technologies to produce scholarship and services in new ways.
In the transition of moving from an analogue world to a digital world, my engineering and librarianship background helps to act as a kind of bridge between librarians and scholars in the university to provide vision, leadership, direction, and expertise in the planning, organization, design, and maintenance of our “Digital Library”.

The primary duties of the University Archivist and Head of Archives and Special Collections are to select, collect, preserve and make the history of the University of Hong Kong accessible to the public. As the oldest university in Hong Kong, our University Archives (UA) collects and preserve all records regardless of formats, organically produced and accumulated by the administration, faculties and departments, as well as by alumni and staff members, as the official institutional repository of the University of Hong Kong. Whereas the Special Collections (SC) collects materials, except the University history, covering a wider scope of research interests focusing on history of Hong Kong, rare materials including rare books dated before 19th century as well as some other non-University artefacts. Materials at SC include government publications, local associations, personal papers donated by prominent Hong Kong figures and business archives founded in Hong Kong. Our Archives and Special Collections aims to provide all-round research support to staff and students, focusing on institutional and territorial wide culture and history of the University and of Hong Kong. And most importantly is to educate users to conduct primary-source research and to protect rare materials whilst appreciating their physicality and contents.
