The Library offers ILL&DDS to libraries of the following institutions and organizations:
* Borrowing libraries are expected to observe IFLA’s International Resource Sharing and Document Delivery: Principles and Guidelines for Procedure.
Delivery & Return
The loan period for an item obtained from ILL is 28 days and can be renewed twice. Renewal should be made before the due date. We reserve the right to recall the item before the due date.
Users from the borrowing library can keep the item obtained from DDS for research and private study purpose.
Loss & Damage
Borrowing libraries are responsible for returning their loans on or before the due date. Any material which is overdue for 60 days and has not been returned will be assumed to have been lost by the borrowing library. An estimated cost of replacement of the book plus processing costs will be charged to the borrowing library. This also applies to any loss or damage of the loaned materials.
The Library reserves the right to suspend services to the borrowing library with unacceptable records of overdue, loss or book damage.
The DDS is provided in accordance with Hong Kong's Copyright Ordinance (Cap. 528). The Library reserves the right to reject any request that may violate the ordinance.
By submitting a DDS request, the user from the borrowing library declares that he/she has read and agreed to the copyright declaration.
