Library Academic Commons Chinese Naming Competition

From 12 October to 4 November, the Library invited members of the University community to suggest a creative Chinese name for the Library’s Academic Commons. Entries were evaluated based on how well they reflected the identity of the Academic Commons as an open and welcoming space encouraging informal and collaborative learning.

67 entries were received during the submission period, and we thank all participants for their contribution. After review, the Library is pleased to announce that the Chinese name “學研匯” was selected as the winner.

The winning name was unveiled at the Library’s Opening Ceremony of the Academic Commons and newly renovated Multimedia Learning Centre held on 29 November 2016. Prizes were presented to the two winners of the competition, Mr. Anthony Yuan (SCE, ECEED) and Ms. Eleanor Lee (UAO).
