As part of the ongoing efforts to build cohesive and friendly relationships with its users, the Library launched its Facebook Page in summer 2011. This page provides an engaging and participatory medium to communicate with many of our users. Since launching the page, we have already picked up over 1,150 “Likes”.
Upon Dr. Samson Soong’ retirement, Ms. Diana Chan, Associate University Librarian, became the University Librarian at HKUST, effective 1 July 2012. On that same date, Mr. KT Lam, Head of Systems and Digital Services, became the Associate University Librarian.
In light of these changes, the Library considered various options for an internal re-organization and agreed on a new structure which will be implemented in 2012-13.
It will divide Collection and User Services into two smaller departments and there will be some other reporting re-alignments. The new structure will have four departments: Access Services, Reference and Collection Services, Technical Services, and Systems and Digital Services.
