To enhance access to library materials and in response to users’ feedback in the 2019 Library Survey, we are pleased to announce that a pilot Self-pickup Station with 18 lockers is now available at the Shaw College. The secured lockers enable CUHK students and staff to pick up books they request and return without having to go to a library.
This Station is the first of its kind among all university libraries in Hong Kong that is installed outside of a library building. It comes with a user-friendly touchscreen interface. As a pilot run, the Station has 18 lockers and a book drop. When a requested item is ready to be picked up at the station, users will receive an email pickup notice from the Library.
