Phone users are now able to search the HKUST Library Catalog via the m.HKUST application. This is a joint project of the Library and the Publishing Technology Center.
The m.HKUST application is available as a free download from the iPhone App Store via iTunes. m.HKUST is available for Apple’s iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices.
Users can search for library materials, see the cover image, read a summary, obtain item availability information, find out which book shelf the item is on, and bookmark the item information for future reference. This mobile Catalog interface will also provide external links, such as to full-text of electronic resources. Continue reading →
Last year, we reported that as part of space planning for the 3-3-4 migration, the Library proposed converting most of the current LG1 floor into a 24-hour-capable expanded Learning Commons environment, as part of a swapping arrangement involving the provision of space in the building expansion.
At the request of our users and the HKUST Students’ Union, the Library is installing laptop holders in all of the toilet stalls in the building. This will better meet your need for laptop security when you need to use the restroom.
Currently there is a demonstration unit installed in the middle stall of the 1/F Men’s toilet, which can be seen in this image. A few changes have been made in this design, and we hope to have the rest installed before the final examination period.
UPDATED 12 November 2009:In order to combine a second project involving overhead duct replacements, the North end of LG1 will remain blocked off for an additional 2 months, until the end of January 2010. The Library apologizes for the added inconvenience.
