Updates on Next-Generation Library System

According to the latest discussion among all eight UGC (University Grants Committee) libraries, it was agreed to revise the schedule of launching the new Shared Integrated Library System (ILS) from early July to mid-July. Hence, user services such as Hold Requests, Book Paging, HKALL, and onsite borrowing using JULAC cards will continue to be suspended until the new library system is launched. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience that you may have experienced. Should you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact the Library’s Information Desk at 3411-7363 or via email at libref@hkbu.edu.hk.

Please take note of the following revised dates:
