Welcome back to a new academic year

September 4, 2007 at 11:32 am

Welcome back to a new academic year. While you were away, we have kept ourselves busy, improving our collection and facilities for you.

The Library has occupied more or less the same space since the Wanchai Campus opened in 1985. Our physical collection on the other hand has increased five folds (from 25,000 items in 1987 to 120,000 items in 2007). In the past years, we have built more shelves for more items. Since 2001, the Library has begun subscribing to electronic resources and the number of e-titles has increased from 2400 to 8900 at present. With the gaining popularity of electronic resources, the Library has shifted the focus from buying physical items to acquiring electronic resources in the hope of extending information services beyond the physical boundary of our small and compact library.

Last year you have seen the introduction of this newsletter which is circulated primarily by email and we have been alerting you about new electronic resources that the Library has subscribed to. To our delight, our system registered an usage statistics of almost 1.9 million between July 2006 and June 2007.
