Current UGC-funded undergraduate users are eligible to apply online for a JULAC Reader Card that allows access to other UGC libraries for reading purposes only.


JULAC reader cards expire at the end of each academic year (i.e. on 31 July every year). Students continuing their studies may renew their card in the following academic year.


A HK$50 processing fee will be charged by every participating library that you visit for each registration and renewal.

Renewal and Replacement

Requests to replace lost cards or to renew expired cards should be made in person at the User Services Counter of the Main Library. A replacement fee of HK$50 will be charged in cases where the card has been lost.

Access to Lingnan University Library

Under the terms of a special arrangement with Lingnan University Library, HKBU undergraduates can simply present their student cards to gain access. No JULAC Reader Card is required.
