“I am looking for the services of Paper Shredder. As a matter of fact, some of the documents, after printing and/or photocopying inside the library, have personal information. It is no[t] a good idea to put them into paper recycle bag. Thus, I would like to ask whether it is possible for library to provide paper shredder.“
Yes – let’s give this a try! We have repurposed a small paper shredder and made it available for you to use.
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.
As part of a set of Learning Spaces Enhancements, several collections are moving back to the ground floor from LG1.
The Newspapers and Current Periodicals are moving during th next ten days.
This will bring them together with the Popular Books collection in a pleasant environment overlooking the Library Garden. The back issues of the Newspapers will be available in the Garden Lobby, along with some sofas for reading.
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
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archival materials; such as antique maps of China, classical science and technology-related rare books, and HKUST historical documents.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.
