    As previously announced in 22 July 2015, ITSC is phasing out Auto-charging System for Printing Service and switching to Octopus-charging printing (Self-Service Printing) by 31 July 2016. This phasing-out is due to a substantial growth in the maintenance cost of the Auto-charging System in recent years and the popularity of using Octopus-charging printing service on campus.

    Following ITSC's decision, the Library will decommission the “Easy Add Value System @ Library” (EASL) on 4 Jan 2016. You will not be able to add deposit to your ITSC / Library print account after that date.

    The ITSC / Library print account will be terminated on 1 Aug 2016. Library users will be able to print using Multi-Function Photocopiers (MFP) or Express Printers with Octopus payment.

    What can you do to protect your personal property in the Library? Prevention is the best cure. Follow the suggestions below to minimize your chances of becoming the next victim:

    What is design? What is thinking? Is it Art? Is it Science?

    Design thinking is not just about finding solutions, it is more about exploring possibilities beyond the confines of limitations and expectations. Developing a skill in finding a perfect answer to every single life and work's problem is as rare as blue moon, but as the experts always say: "creativity can not be taught, it can only be caught!", so can we think like Leonardo de Vinci?

    During the sharing session, the speaker will take the audience through a journey of discovery from a humanistic angle to explore ways to generate creative and innovative solutions. Participants will be given idea generation exercises, then compare and debate on the resultant propositions to gain a working understanding of how ideas...
