Check books out without waiting at the Circulation Counter?

Our new Self Check-out station, located on the G/F of the Chung Chi Library (just opposite the Circulation Counter), enables library users to check their books out by themselves.

The station displays easy-to-understand instructions on its screen. Simply insert your library card and have the barcodes on the books scanned. As soon as you are all done, press "Finish & Print Receipt" on the screen. A receipt listing each book you borrowed and its due date will be printed for your record. Take your receipt and pack up your books. It's that easy! You can check out your books without having to get assistance from the library staff.

Need help using the Self Check-out station for the first time (or at any time)? The staff at the Circulation Counter would be glad to assist.

Why not give the Self Check-out system a try on your next visit to the Chung Chi Library?

Using New 10-digit University Student ID (USID) to Login to Your Library Account (Effective July 1, 2010)

The Steering Committee on the Development of CUSIS has announced that student ID number will change from an 8-digit to a 10-digit format. The new 10-digit University Student ID (USID) will come into effect on July 1, 2010. Details of the change are available from the CUSIS website.

To align with the change, effective July 1, 2010, all students (except students graduating in July/Aug 2010) should use their new 10-digit USID when they login to their library account to use library resources.

  1. Since current students will not be requested to replace their CU Link cards due to the change of USID format (please refer to CUSIS for details), current students with CU Link card issued before July 2010 (except students graduating in July/Aug 2010) are reminded to enter "10" in front of the ID printed on their CU Link card (e.g. instead of 08123456, enter 1008123456) to login to their library account.

  2. For other library users (including students graduating in July/Aug 2010), they can continue to enter the ID no. printed on their Student/Staff/Library card to login into their library account.

As a result of the CUSIS' One-Student-One-ID policy, current students who are now holding more than one USID due to enrolling in different programmes will be assigned one USID only. These students should note that the latest USID assigned may not be the one they selected originally to use the Library with. If this is the case, they need to go to the CU Link Card Centre to update their CU Link card before they can use the Library.

Please also refer to the library website on Temporary Suspension of Some Library Services during CUSIS Changeover Period (June 30 to July 1).

For inquiries: please email to

Library e-book system

ULS eBook Initiative has converted some of our rare books, out-of-print books and books published during 1911 to 1949 to E-books for preservation and information sharing. Currently, the ULS eBook system provides more than 18,000 volumes of E-books. Due to copyright concern, these e-books can only be accessible at dedicated E-book Standalone Stations which are available at G/F Chung Chi Library.

Besides searching e-books at the eBook system, an “E-book standalone station” will be shown in the Library Catalogue when there is a digital copy available in our eBook system. You can locate the e-books by themselves at the dedicated Stations by using title or call number search. However, Printing and Download is strictly prohibited.

Google Scholar and Google Book Preview have been added to our library online catalogue. For Google Book Preview, the icon, Google Book will only appear when

The Man Hong Kong International Literary Festival 2010

Good translation is as much a work of art as the piece being translated. Yet often the subtleties and nuances of language--the things that make a work original--are missed in the process. Is it possible to create a mirror of the original? To what extent does a translator have the opportunity to discuss a work's nuances with the author? Join Murong Xuecun and his translator, Harvey Thomlinson, as they shed some light on these questions. Please note that this session will be in English and Putonghua. The workshop will be held at the CC Library on March 15 (Monday) from 11:30 am to 12:30 noon. To register for this event, please click here.
