THE DISPLAY OF NEW AV MATERIALS (5 Jan 2013)

Thank you for your following comment to the Library. Please note that we stop the display of new materials, i.e. books and AV materials, during the term breaks given the fact that less number of staff and students will come to the Library that time or they will not come as often as term time. By doing so, a user can check out the materials as soon as they are processed for learning or research off campus. Although it may not be meeting your expectation, such an arrangement should better meet the need of staff and students during this period of time.

 

SUGGESTION OF OVERDUE FINES FOR AV MATERIALS (DAILY TYPE)[14 May 2008]

SUGGESTION OF OVERDUE FINES FOR AV MATERIALS (DAILY TYPE): The Library had a discussion on your suggestion yesterday.

According to our record, those 3 titles mentioned in your suggestion were returned on 16 May and checked out again same day. We regard that the overdue situation is within control. At this moment, the Library will continue to keep the current overdue fines for AV materials (daily type) to $2 per item per day. We will monitor the situation and review the penalty if the situation changes in future.

RECENTLY RETURNED AV ITEMS [27 Apr 2007]

RECENTLY RETURNED AV ITEMS: Thank you for your following comment on locating AV materials. As you know, the turnover rate of AV materials is very high. Returned discs will be firstly put on a trolley for browsing and borrowing. Unwanted items will get shelved after a couple of hours. By doing so, the manpower for shelving can be saved. To address your question, a "RECENTLY RETURNED" sign will be put on the trolley next week. We hope that this information will help users to better locate AV items.

CASSETTE LOANS [28 Feb 2007]

 CASSETTE LOANS:  Due to the fragile nature of cassette tapes, the Library does not loan out audio / video cassettes at this moment. Because the Linguaphone courses are audio or video cassettes, so we do not loan them out. The Library is in the process of reviewing and enhancing our language learning services, and see what improvements we can make. We would be glad to take your suggestion into consideration.

CLASSIFICATION OF MULTIMEDIA MATERIALS [3 Oct 2006]

CLASSIFICATION OF MULTIMEDIA MATERIALS: Materials are classified by the type of format and they can be identified by the prefix of call numbers. For example, the audio CD will have AVD as the prefix, Video CD as AVE, DVD as AVF, etc. Because the AV materials have more than a dozen different formats and are shelved in different shelves / cabinets, users who have any question in locating the materials, please contact the Media Services Counter for assistance.

REQUEST & HOLD OF DVD [3 Oct 2006]

REQUEST & HOLD OF DVD: As AV materials have a very high usage demand and turnover rate, the loan periods are limited to 3 hours to 7 days. If the Library allows users to request and hold DVD items that have been loaned out, after returning to the Library, these items will be held behind the counter for 3 days until the users come to pick them up. In the mean time other users cannot use these items so usage will be adversely affected.  

LOAN POLICY FOR AV MATERIALS [14 Mar 2003]

LOAN POLICY FOR AV MATERIALS: The Library reviews its loan rules each year. A new set of loan rules, including the number of books/AV materials to be borrowed and the loan periods, etc. will be proposed to the Information & Library Services Committee in its May/June meeting and to be effective from the new Academic Year after proper endorsement. We shall be happy to look into the loan policy of AV materials and discuss if a revision is necessary.

CHECKING OUT AV MATERIALS [25 Mar 2002]

CHECKING OUT AV MATERIALS: In the past many discs were returned to the Library with scratches on them. We are not sure if the scratches were made by the user or not. To check the discs at counter before taking them out will protect the user from being charged the replacement cost if scratches are already there.

MLLC COLLECTION [9 Jan 2002]

MLLC COLLECTION: Part of the MLLC Collection is used for language teaching and listening purposes. Please note that some students use audio books to learn the American accent. The age group as specified in the bibliographic record is designed for the English speaking community.

The Library has the Oscar best pictures from 1927 onwards. If you have problem in finding the video / LD / VCD / DVD, please check with the professional librarian on duty at the Reference Desk or send us an email.

USING AUDIO TAPES IN THE LIBRARY [28 May 2001]

USING AUDIO TAPES IN THE LIBRARY: We have reviewed and discussed the existing AV policies and procedures.

1. As audio tapes can be damage easily, we prefer users to use them inside the Library. Since equipment is only provided in AV Collection and SAC, tapes are expected to use there.

2. Most tapes can be finished within 3 hours. If you require a longer period, please renew them at counter for another 3 hours.
