The Library has purchased a few new power strips with USB charging ports installed. Should we get more of these for other locations? Or are they a waste of time and money? Try them out and let us know what you think.

They are located on the tables in the back hall of 1/F:

The Library is always working to improve services and facilities for your use.  Recently, we have been able to convert 3 more rooms into group studies!

Back in May, we added room LG4-02.  And this week we rolled out LG3-04 and LG3-08!  We still need to add some artwork to them, and the computer monitor in LG3-08 is a temporary one on the table – a proper 32″ wall-mounted monitor will be added later.

This week, the Library was able to extend the overnight study space to include all of LG1.  The plan is to try this out for the study and exam weeks to reduce the pressure on the existing 24-hour LC space.  We are able to do so through a lot of work and planning by Library staff, and with the help of University administration and support from FMO.

Sadly, some students abused this change, and they made a big mess in one of the Media Viewing rooms.

As part of the Library’s ongoing renovations, the various wiring conduits in the three Media and Discussion Rooms on LG1 need to be relocated. Unfortunately, this involves some very noisy work, as the contractor cuts the concrete walls for the new conduits.

This work is now scheduled for this weekend (Saturday and Sunday, 8-9 November). We apologise for the noise – please be understanding as we work to improve the media rooms.

The HKUST Library takes computer security quite seriously.  As soon as information about Heartbleed came to light, Library Systems staff examined all our servers for vulnerability.  Fortunately, most Library systems never used the versions of OpenSSL which have this bug.  This includes the Library catalog, where your sensitive personal data remains secure.  Two servers were found to be vulnerable, and patches and upgrades were immediately applied to close this vulnerability.

As of Thursday afternoon, none of the Library servers were affected by Heartbleed.
