Welcome to PolyU!

Your learning does not stop when you leave your classrooms; the Library is the most powerful tool to support your learning, formally, to acquire knowledge related to your classes, and informally, to extend your curiosity to anything important in your life and to your career.

From the 2 minutes introductory video (below) you would have an overview of the PolyU Library.  In the next few sections, we will accompany you to find out more about the services, spaces, and the collections essential to you as a freshman.

Making good uses of the Library will not only bring you good academic results, but also a circle of friends that stand by you when you need them most. There are a lot more in the Library that are not covered in this Guide. Come and explore!
