Re-launch Ceremony of the Tin Ka Ping Education Library
Date: 28 October, 2022 (Friday)
Time: 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Venue: 8/F, HKU Meng Wah Complex
In the summer of 2022, the HKU Libraries underwent a digital transformation to meet the increasing demand for virtual teaching and learning. As part of this initiative, the Education Library was transformed into a next-generation collaborative space, equipped with more digital services. The Libraries also adopted an e-preferred approach to collection development, and a new Education Collection was built in the Main Library to provide centralized access to all physical education collections.
The Libraries worked closely with Information Technology Services (ITS) to create a revamped learning environment that encouraged active learning through a mix of digital resources, a user-friendly setting, and responsive services. The stack area was optimized with modern furniture, and an open area was created to encourage interactions and group discussions. In addition, equipment in the Discussion rooms was upgraded, a wireless BYOD setting, and a virtual library counter to handle enquiries.
