About the Academic Commons

The Library's Academic Commons includes all of the public spaces on Levels 2 and 3 of the Au Shue Hung Memorial Library Building. It is designed to be a welcoming space suitable for collaborative learning that can be reconfigured for a variety of events and purposes. To provide maximum flexibility and convenience in catering for the study needs of our students, the Academic Commons opens 24 hours during the semester (including public holidays).


About the Multimedia Learning Centre

Information is not limited to printed paper!

The Multimedia Learning Centre was originally started to house all non-print collections, but the Multimedia Learning Centre also provides a physical space, which embodies the Library’s mission to provide technology-enhanced services like Group Viewing Rooms and Multimedia Stations, high-levels of information literacy through library workshops at the Collaborative Computer Lab, facilities to support research like Postgraduate Study Rooms, and barrier-free access to information at Special Needs User Rooms.

It is also the heart of the Library’s effort to lead the university in data curation by providing quantitative data analysis tools in its Data Analysis Room and by promoting HKBU research through Digital Scholarship Projects.
