Get Resources Beyond Our Library

Through Hong Kong Academic Library Link (HKALL), eligible EdUHK library users can request books from other UGC-funded libraries online (excluding serials, media and other non-print materials). 

JULAC Library Cards allow cardholders to have access to other UGC-funded libraries. There are two kinds of cards that provide borrowing or reading privileges as follows:

  •   Borrower Card - For faculty and postgraduate students, allows you to borrow items from other UGC libraries
  •   Reader Card - For UGC-funded undergraduate students, allows entry to other UGC libraries only

Students and staff can obtain materials which are not available in the EdUHK Library via our enhanced Inter-library Loan (ILL – for books) and Document Delivery Services (DDS – for book chapters and journal articles).
