Library Service Updates
We are almost halfway of the Autumn Term now. In this term, you may not attend face-to-face classes or see your fellow classmates as often as before, still, we hope you could find learning enjoyable and interesting. The Library is also exploring new ways to support you in this ”new normal”. We have sourced quality online resources and organized online quizzes to support your new mode of study. We also never stop enhancing our services and facilities in the campus libraries. Let the Library be your best study partner, be it online or offline!
