Project Overview

Chung Chi College Elisabeth Luce Moore Library (CCL) is one of the busiest libraries on campus. Its convenient location close to the MTR and on the lower campus means that it has just over half a million visits per year. This figure is very stable, not showing a decline despite the opening of the WMY Learning Commons and the Pommerenke Student Centre nearby in 2011.

The 2014 Library survey highlight a level of dissatisfaction with current facilities at CCL. Specifically there was a demand for additional study space, computers and printing facilities. Given this challenging situation, the Library is refurbishing CCL to provide a new learning cluster with more study space on the ground floor, more shelving space for collection growth and a new RFID self-issue and return service. The refurbishment projects has been started in summer, 2016.

The existing CCL collections focus on music, religion, education, sports science, performing arts and theatre. All subject areas where print collection growth is still strong.

New Facilities & Services

In September 2017, the Ground Floor of CCL has been renovated to become a new learning cluster with new reading tables, chairs and sofas. More than 100 seats are provided in the Learning Cluster.

  • RFID Self Service Borrow & Return - Three self-checkout stations enabled by RFID technology facilitate convenient and speedy check-out of books. RFID enabled book return station provide users with self-return service with real-time check-in.
  • Roving services - By removing the counter and reconceptualising the help desk area there is better support for users through a roving service during weekdays starting from September 2017.
  • Group Study Rooms - Two group study rooms with LCD screens & notebooks provide meeting and study space for groups of 3 to 7 people.
