    Over the summer, the CUHK Library has stepped up the effort in enhancing the self-service experience provided to library users by making use of the radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. At the University Library and the Chung Chi College Elisabeth Luce Moore Library, we offer intuitive self-service facilities to allow for a much faster and more efficient way of borrowing and returning books. Not only does it mean less queueing, but it also frees up library staff time from routine transactions to answering queries from users and providing help where it is most needed.
