new services 2014-2015 poster

1.  New E-books Resources for Five Academic Libraries

Together with four other tertiary institutions, our university has been granted a fund of over $50 million under the Quality Enhancement Support Scheme (QESS) in developing an online Collection Sharing and Information Discovery System (CSIDS) and a new e-book collection. The four cooperating institutions are as below:

  • The Open University of Hong Kong
  • Caritas Institute of Higher Education
  • Chu Hai College of Higher Education
  • Tung Wah College

CSIDS provides a next generation search and discovery tool to facilitate faculty members and students among the five libraries to find and access the library.

The CSIDS titles can be found at the Library website.  The acquired e-book titles are listed out under “Collections” then into the option “CSIDS Titles”.

3.   HKSYUtube

User can login to access restricted local TV programs in Campus through Library website.

Since 2006, the Library provides recorded local TV programs from three free TV broadcast companies (ATV, RTHK and TVB). Programs are mainly subjected to news and public affairs. For effective preservation and easier access for Library users, some licensed episodes produced are converted into online streaming videos. DVD copies can be found on the 6/F of the Library, or users may login to access restricted resources through HKSYUtube for online viewings.


4.   5/F: an extension of Learning Commons

During this Summer, the 5/F of the Library was renovated by replacing old bookshelves with additional new furniture. The floor is now split into General Collection and an extension of Learning Commons. General Collection houses both English and Chinese books and the latter provides 24 PC workstation cubicles, a magazine corner and a presentation room in which users may learn and study collaboratively.

8.   Result of LibQUAL+ Survey 2013

In November 2013, the Library conducted an online survey via LibQUAL+ in which 97% of 606 completed responses were undergraduates.

The overall score in quality of service is 6.53. Our result is similar to that of JULAC* Libraries’ LibQUAL+ survey in 2011.  Hence, HKSYU Library successfully reaches a certain level of service as an academic library in Hong Kong.
*JULAC includes all 8 public university libraries, i.e. HKU, CUHK, HKUST, CityU, PolyU, HKBU, LU & HKIEd

Detail of the survey:

22 questions of the three main dimensions (i.e. Affect of Service (AS), Information Control (IC) and Library as Place (LP) scoring on a scale of 1 to 9 at three levels: Minimum (M), Perceived (P) and Desired(D)), it showed that AS received the highest adequacy score at 1.14 (i.e. P–M )while LP scored the lowest superiority at –1.13 (i.e. P–D). On usage pattern questions, the results showed that over 50% of respondents use the Library at least weekly and over 90% of them use commercial search engines. There are 362 written comments in which 25% of them related to I.T. & Facilities.
