Lending Services
The library materials are purposefully selected to facilitate quality learning and teaching of all programmes offered in the College. Lending services are available at the Library Service Counter until 30 minutes before closing of the Library.
Users may borrow library materials with a valid student or staff ID card. All Library materials must be checked out at the Circulation Counter properly. There may be disciplinary action against students who remove library materials from the Library without proper checkout or authorization.
Hold Requests
When a book (from the circulation collection) is checked out by other user, user can request via the Library Catalogue. An email notice will be sent to alert the user when the item is ready to be picked up from the Circulation Counter. An email notice will be sent to alert the requester when the item is ready to be picked up from the 5/F Circulation Counter. The requested item(s) will be released after the last pick-up date indicated in the email.
Users are reminded to return loan item(s) to the Circulation Counter or the Book Drops on or before the due date. The following items should be returned at library counter (but not via book drops):
  • Overdue library materials;
  • Items with accompanying materials;
  • Multimedia materials (such as DVDs, etc.); and
  • Reader cards from other libraries.
Fines will be applied to all late returns.

Charge for Loss and Damage
Loss or damage of loan items should be reported to the Library Service Counter as soon as possible. A charge for lost/damaged library materials will be imposed. The charge is calculated based on the replacement cost of the damaged/lost item plus a processing fee of $60. All lost and damaged items remain the property of the Library. All sums paid are non-refundable.
Assumed Lost
An overdue item that accrues the maximum fine is assumed lost. The borrower will be billed accordingly and his/her borrowing privileges will be suspended. The charge is calculated based on the replacement cost of the lost item, a processing fee of $60 and the maximum overdue fine. All sums paid are non-refundable.
Circulation Notices
All library notices, including overdue notice and hold pick-up notice, will be sent to users’ College e-mail accounts as a courtesy. It is the responsibility of users to return their borrowed items punctually. Failure to read or receive an e-mail notice does not relieve the user of responsibility for overdue items or resulting fines.
Suspension of Borrowing Rights
Suspension of borrowing rights may be applied to users with:
  • Six or more overdue items in his/her the account;
  • Any loan item overdue for 30 days or above;
  • Total library fine exceeds $100; or
  • Library fine unsettled for 3 weeks or above.
Lending services are provided based on the Library Regulations. Please contact us for enquiry or further support.
