Special Collections Gallery and Digitization Project

 

With a donation of $3 million from Dr Ko Pui-shuen, Chairman of Kingrich Asia Holdings Limited, the Library has initiated two projects to enhance access to and use of the University Archives & Special Collections.

Building a Special Collections Gallery

Overview of Gallery Design Space

In addition to providing reading and research space for users, the Gallery will be dedicated to exhibitions of our Special Collections and University archival materials; such as antique maps of China, classical science and technology-related rare books, and HKUST historical documents.  During the past few months, we have worked with the designer to come up with a design layout and are in the process of selecting a construction vendor.  The target completion date is August 2013.

A special exhibition on the Olympics

To commemorate the passing of the Olympic Torch in Hong Kong and to
celebrate the opening of the Beijing Olympics, an exhibition on the
Olympic Games are being held at the left wing of the Library gallery
from August 6 to October 6.

This exhibit captures the fond memories of the special Olympic events.
In the first display case, you will see the display of the 1984 Los
Angeles Olympic in which one of the Chinese athletes won the first gold
medal for the country. The 2008 display case features the two authentic
torches carried by President Paul Chu and Mr. Yik Hei Chan, a UG student
at UST, and the uniform they wore during the torch relay. Yik Hei�s
disassembled torch along with brief explanations of each part will
enlighten you on the composition of the Olympic Torch.

Come to visit the exhibit (http://library.ust.hk/info/exhibit/)
as well as our �Collection Highlights�
(http://library.ust.hk/res/highlights/archive.html )
