Library Renovation Working Group

A major library renovation plan was submitted to the Government in 2006/2007. After years of perseverance in resubmissions, the government finally granted funding of HK$ 19.45 M to renovate the Academy Library. The renovated library will have a Learning Commons, 3 to 4 group study rooms, a cultural display area and a connected workspace for a growing number of library staff.

Commencement of the Project is now on the mark. A Library Renovation Working Group has thus been set up by the Library Committee at its 61st meeting held on 22 October 2013.

Please click here for details of the Library Renovation Working Group.

Recommendation on consultancy was submitted to the Government for approval.  As soon as approval is obtained and the consultants are appointed, the Library Renovation Working Group would meet with the consultants and collect suggestions and feedbacks from all stakeholders.  Nevertheless, you are welcome to send in any suggestions to the Libraries at any time.

Temporary Suspension of Off-Sited Items Request Service

You may have noted that due to limited shelving space, the Library has off-sited the least frequently used items to the contracted document delivery service provider since 2002. The provider will, upon request, retrieve and deliver stored items to the Library for use. This arrangement has proved cost-effective.

However, the current service provider will discontinue the present service beginning 1 April 2013. The Library has to look for alternative service provider and has to receive over 25,000 items from the current service provider, re-process and then transfer them to the new service provider by batches of 1,000 items.  It is estimated that the transfer process will take about 4 months to complete. So, we are sorry to inform you that the Off-Sited Items Request Service will be suspended between 17 December 2012 and 31 March 2013.

We will strive hard for an early completion of the removal to the new service provider and please accept our sincere apology for inconvenience caused in this unexpected circumstance.

Please note that statuses of items on transfer have been changed to RE-PROCESS as shown in the below record.
