    About the Library


    Mission
     
    The mission of the OUHK Library is to provide quality scholarly resources, responsive user services, and a convenient environment for information access to faculty and students of the Open University of Hong Kong in supporting their teaching, learning, and research activities.
     

    Electronic Library
     
    The Electronic Library (E-Library) provides abundant library information and learning resources for library users to access anytime anywhere while they are on campus, at home or in office.
     
    In E-Library, users may check for latest library development and news. User education materials are also hosted on E-Library in order to support users in using the library resources for their study and research. Most importantly, users can search for abundant learning resources including databases, journals, books, as well as dissertations, reference resources, online multimedia, past examination papers and supplementary readings, no matter in print or electronic formats, via our library resources discovery platform. 
     
    The OUHK Library strives to keep pace with rapid developing information technologies in order to cater for the new ways students and faculty use library and access information. Design of E-Library is responsive to different types of device so that library users can conveniently access online library resources with their mobile phones, tablets or laptop computers. E-Library also adopts the latest technology in discovery and retrieval of library resources which offers one-stop service for searching across the full breath of contents from the Library's collections in electronic and physical formats. The OUHK was the first in Hong Kong to adopt this most advanced system in the field available internationally which is now also used by all UGC-funded universities and most local self-financing tertiary institutions.


    Campus Libraries
     
    The two campus libraries supports the teaching and research activities of OUHK by providing easy access to local and overseas resources as well as user-friendly multi-media teaching and learning facilities.
