Item eligibility

Users with valid HKBU SSOID may use HKALL to request a book if the following criteria are met:

  • The book is not held by HKBU Library OR all of HKBU Library’s copies of the book are currently checked out to other users.
  • At least one other participating library holds a copy of the book with the status “AVAILABLE” in HKALL.

Searching HKALL

HKALL is embedded in the HKBU Library OneSearch platform. For details about how to search for a book using HKALL, please refer to this FAQ entry "How do I request a book from other university libraries in Hong Kong?"

Making a Request

After you have found the item you need in HKALL, click on the “Request this title” link. Please sign in authenticate your request. The information required corresponds to your My Library Account login details (i.e. your HKBU SSOid). The system will also ask you to choose a pickup location (either the Main Library or the Shek Mun Campus Library).
