1 Borrow electronic PhD thesis from other universities in shorter time Although more and more thesis and dissertations are now freely available online, some are still restricted to the staff or students of the particular university. Users can locate some local and international thesis databases at “Database A – Z” page or contact us for assistance at the Information Counter / by email (libinfo@eduhk.hk) / by phone (29486653)
2 1. If I want to borrow a book, the normal version is already being borrowed or there is no normal version, only the reserved version is not borrowed, I could not make HKALL requests for the book. It’s not very convenient because the reserved version have 7-days policy.

2. The textbooks that can be borrowed from 2F, such as the English textbooks, don’t have reserved or non-circular version, making it very inconvenient when we need one in urgent.

Based on mutual agreement, users will not be able to make HKALL request if there is at least one loanable copy at the home library.

If users note that there are course-required readings that should be placed at non-circulation reserve instead of the regular book collection on 2/F to 4/F, please contact library staff directlly or ask the course instructor to contact the Library immediately.

3 There is a lot of paper in the online library system are invalid and brought me some troubles while I was doing homework. (I’m studying Greater China Study). By default, the Library iSearch system will display article information regardless whether the Library has online full text subscription or not. Users, however, can choose to limit the results to only include those records with online full text available.

If users have trouble accessing records indicating full text available, please contact us for assistance at the Information Counter / by email (libinfo@eduhk.hk) / by phone (29486653).

4 Many journal articles are shown in library’s search engine in the type of electronic collections, but without full text! It is so sad when you see a title of an article match perfectly with my research, but no full text available online nor on shelf. By default, the Library iSearch system will display article information regardless whether the Library has online full text subscription or not. Users, however, can choose to limit the results to only include those records with online full text available.

If users have trouble accessing records indicating full text available, please contact us for assistance at the Information Counter / by email (libinfo@eduhk.hk) / by phone (29486653)

Eligible users can also make use of our Inter-library loans service to obtain the full text for free.

5 Hard to find full text article. It show full text link , actually no full text. So terrible.
6 教科書唔齊, 好多時淨係得學生版, 無老師版,
又懶出版社唔送(牛津), 咁學校唔識問?
無教師版相等於我地d準教師唔會借, 或者借黎無用
其實學生版要黎無用另外d listening全部無碟, 得本書,
咁借黎根本都用唔到!
然後又懶個出版社無送比學校
係咪唔識問, 或者向出版社購買返?
A few years back, Oxford University Press (HK) stopped selling its school textbook teacher’s edition to EdUHK Library because they found pirated copies being used by some tutoring centers that were originated from EdUHK Library.

After some negotiation, OUP resumed selling them to EdUHK Library for a while after we agreed to remove them from open shelf and making sure that they can only be borrowed by legitimate users at the Circulation Counter.

Unfortunately, OUP insisted that the problem persisted and decided to stop selling the teacher’s editions to EdUHK Library since 2015.

7 I cannot access the online resource through the link which provided by the library, please check the link is available or not Comments noted with thanks. Please contact us for assistance at Information Counter / by email (libinfo@eduhk.hk) / by phone (29486653)
8 Some of the electronic books can only be viewed by one person while the others should wait until the user leave online. This is problematic that electronic books should be publicly used by registered EdUHK users. Isn’t it? Students had paid lots of fees to the EdUHK for high quality services. E-books are provided by different publishers on a number of e-book platforms, restrictions on the number of concurrent users may vary a lot based on the license agreement between the Library and e-book vendor. While some vendors allow unlimited access to their ebooks, others will charge a much higher price for multiple-user access.

Most publishers do allow users to download a limited number of pages of the ebook for off-line usage and we strongly encourage users to use the ebooks well ahead of the lecture or examination to ensure the access.

9 too many book cannot download E-books are provided by different publishers on a number of e-book platforms, restrictions on the number of concurrent users or how many pages that could be downloaded may vary a lot based on the license agreement between the Library and e-book vendor. Some e-books can only be downloaded (with or without restriction) only by registered users for the particular platforms. Please contact us by email (libinfo@eduhk.hk) or phone (29486653) for assistance if necessary.
10 中文學術文獻及相關數據庫不足,很難找到有用的內地期刊內容及數據資料作研究用途 EdUHK staff and students are welcome to send their recommendations directly to the Library using the Online Recommendation Form. Meanwhile, the Library has also acquired or subscribed to various Chinese digital collections from major Chinese vendors such as 同方、方正、萬方、超星、華藝、Hyread、五南, etc. as well as a number of major Chinese research tools such as 中國基本古籍庫文淵閣四庫全書電子版四部叢刊電子版漢籍電子文獻資料庫晚清期刊全文數據庫民國時期期刊全文數據庫漢達文庫, etc. Users are welcome to contact us directly for assistance if necessary.
11 The quality of accessibility of ebooks is only satisfactory when I am in the campus EdUHK staff and students should be able to access e-books remotely using VPN or proxy platform although the download speed may be slower than what they experience on campus. If necessary, please contact us at the Information Counter / by email (libinfo@eduhk.hk) or / by phone (29486653)
12 Please buy edatabase duxiu.com as soon as possible. Free trial of 「讀秀學術搜索平臺」has been arranged before and it was not considered due to cost and copyright issues.
13 有些電子期刊網頁沒法使用,要註冊後才能使用的 Many major publishers encourage users to register for their personal account to enjoy customized services such as citation tracking or email alert services but it is uncommon for publisher to ask for prior registration in order to access the articles.

Please contact us at the Information Counter, by email (libinfo@eduhk.hk) or by phone (29486653) for assistance.

14 The e-newspaper of South China Morning Post (e-paper edition) include the current newspaper only, not latest 30 days. Please check with SCMP SCMP e-paper archive is available under the menu option. Please contact us for assistance at the Information Counter / by email (libinfo@eduhk.hk)? / by phone (29486653)
15 Please subscribe a journal called “Physical Review E”
This journal is subscribed in our school last year but this year, it seems that the subscription is stopped. It highly affect the process of research in my study.
Thank you for the report. We have continuous subscription to this journal “Physical Review E”?and the access problem has been resolved after we reported it to the publisher.
16 希望將來的日子可以將所有實體書轉為電子書,這樣可以方便到未能親身前往圖書館借書的同工/學 The Library has adopted an e-priority policy since 2013. If a book is available in electronic format, e-book will be purchased instead of the print version.
17 1. the icon for renewal library material system is not easy to locate while doing renewal.

2. more e-book provided and survey for the readers’ book interest

The renewal procedure has been changed with the implementation of the new Library system in July 2017 and the introduction of automatic renewal. Please refer to the iSearch user guide?or contact us for assistance at the Information Counter / by email (libinfo@eduhk.hk) / by phone (29486653).
18 It seems to be less convenient to look up items already on the shelves inside the library. Sometimes I simply want to check out a music score and a recording to bring to class quickly, but it is more complicated and time-consuming to do so now. Online search is important, but it should not take over (hinder) the normal check out procedure. Users should be able to choose between the online items and the library collections right from the beginning. Some of the online items simply cannot replace the hard copies already inside the library. Users can easily limit the search results to scores, audio visual or other types of resources using the “Resouce Type” option in the iSearch results list. Please contact us for assistance at the Information Counter / by email (libinfo@eduhk.hk) / by phone (29486653).
19 很多我想看的書都沒有(小語種),希望能用知網資源。 We have subscribed journal, dissertations and yearbook series of CNKI (中國知網) for many years. Please check it out at http://www.vestamatic.com.cn/cgi-bin/cnki-qingdao?CJNB

All EdUHK staff and students are welcome to use the Online Recommendation Form to send specific purchase suggestions to the Library.

20 Though not all journals’ articles are available, I greatly appreciate the quite fast turnaround when article photocopies are requested.
When I need a book, sometimes it’s said to be available on HKALL but actually all the copies are electronic resources and not available to me. I can then order it through ILLiad, but I wonder if HKALL can be fixed so that it doesn’t say the book is available at other libraries when in fact I cannot order it.
Comments noted with thanks.

We have been with other local libraries in fine-tuning the wordings and results display in HKALL to minimize potential confusion by users.

21 可以多購買一些資料書,中小學教材, 有些書籍只有一本,不能供幾人同時借閱。一些文獻只有full-text unavailable online Comments noted and will be considered in future review.

However please note that with limited budget, the Library must always try to strike a balance between buying more titles and varieties of materials against more copies of the same title.

22 收納書籍可以更為全面,有些書只有一本,很難借到,可以增加個別搶手書目的本數
23 (1)增加香港中學文憑考試考試報告及試題專輯的冊數,現時每年份各科只得一冊,很多時候不在架上,宜各科每年份添至兩冊或以上;或各科每年份各存一冊於流通服務臺,讓同學借閱數小時,限於館內使用。
24 6. I know some other University libraries have the practice of giving away outdated magazines (such as The Economist and others) or allowing them to be on loan, I hope your library can follow suit. Comments noted with thanks and will be considered.
25 the adults borrowing materials are relatively old and less compared with public library Comments noted with thanks. All EdUHK staff and students are welcome to use the Online Recommendation Form to send specific purchase suggestions to the Library.

Please also note that since the Library has adopted an e-priority policy for many years, most new purchases are available online and won’t be found on shelf.

26 希望學校的館藏圖書能夠定期翻新哦,專業課的學習需要新的理論支撐。謝謝啦!
27 The amount of book is not enough such as some book only have one. If many student want to borrow the same book, it make some student cannot get that book. Comments noted and will be considered in future review.

However please note that with limited budget, the Library must always try to strike a balance between buying more titles and varieties of materials against more copies of the same title.

28 某一些書籍的數量較少,而很多位同學輪用一本,不太方便。可按情況增加某些熱門借或常要催還的書籍
29 增加指定參考書的數量和各類型新書的數量
30 please consider buying more NEW and UPDATED textbooks and supplementary exercises that are used in local schools.
many of the existing resources are outdated and not in acceptable conditions

Comments noted with thanks. All EdUHK staff and students are welcome to use the Online Recommendation Form to send specific purchase suggestions to the Library.
37 few collections about non-educational resources, whilst many of them are non-circulating.
38 Not adequate enough
39 may the lib please purchase new and up to date reference textbooks and workbooks? eduhk students need them for reference materials during teaching practice
40 Papers are heavily centered around education. As the University offers other courses and to promote diversified readings, a more diverse subject range journey should be offered. Compare to Athens access (from previous university), the amount of journey can be accessed is significantly less. Also should have more electronic textbook available for reading.
41 some of the e-library’s references are too old, especially the Early Childhood education area. Comments noted with thanks. All EdUHK staff and students are welcome to use the Online Recommendation Form to send specific purchase suggestions to the Library.
42 更多有關心理學的文獻
43 The collection is not enough , especially the resources of soc sci
44 More reference books about English language education should be introduced.
45 Although I know there are already many resources are bought by the library, I think the variety can be more, e.g. about history
46 1. please buy more updated books and textbooks, e.g. the library version is 2007, but the secondary/ primary schools are already using the 2018 version.
2. please replace old book/ books that are not in good conditions with new one
47 購買更多與Social Sciences/ Political Science相關期刊,無需每次透過系統從外校申請journal articles.
48 If you could include and purchase more database for postgraduate and research students it would be better
49 The collection of e-books and e-journals are far from satisfactory when compared to other local universities. Comments noted with thanks. All EdUHK staff and students are welcome to use the Online Recommendation Form to send specific purchase suggestions to the Library.
50 can buy more databases in art and cultural aspects.
51 E journal is good enough. More e book would be more preferred
52 Very unsatisfactory x 10000; should increase the number of electronic resources ASAP, especially Journals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
53 we need much more updated journal articles
54 宗教研究書籍不能跟上時代的步伐,我個人較關心基督教書籍,我認為此方面的書籍日新月異,如果有關的館藏仍然停留於80-00年代的書本,學生難以在宗教研究上有緊照時代的的學習。 Comments noted with thanks. All EdUHK staff and students are welcome to use the Online Recommendation Form at? to send specific purchase suggestions to the Library.

However, there are actually thousands of books in EdUHK library collection on Christianity studies that were published in 2001 and after. A subject search using “Christianity” in iSearch will show a list of over 4,500 books — over 3,500 of which were published after 2000.

Since EdUHK Library has adopted the e-priority policy for many years, please note that most of our new books come as e-books rather than paper books. Please contact library staff at the Information Counter / email libinfo@eduhk.hk / phone 29486653 for assistance.

55 欠缺/更新設計與科技的館藏, 只有三數本書是2010年後出版 Comments noted with thanks. All EdUHK staff and students are welcome to use the Online Recommendation Form to send specific purchase suggestions to the Library.

56 Scientific Journal database is not enough, too limited. Comments noted with thanks. Since we have to take consideration of both the cost and the user population size, we cannot always purchase everything.? All EdUHK staff and students are welcome to use the Online Recommendation Form to send specific purchase suggestions to the Library.
57 The scientific journal articles available are not sufficient. Older journals are often not accessible. The range should absolutely be broadened or else it will cause lots of inconvenience in my future honours project research.
58 Some electronic resources unavailable
59 能不能有多點online resources的資源?!每次上次library都可以搜索到,然後想每次覺得有用想打開就會顯示online resource unavailable?!這資料也太少了吧??!
60 Please add SciFinder (https://scifinder.cas.org) service for us. It is an essential tool for scientific research and available in ALL other universities in Hong Kong.

Please also subscribe to well-known scientific journals such as those from American Chemical Society (ACS) and Royal Chemical Society (RSC). Currently the University only has subscription to some journals from Wiley, but those from ACS and RSC are equally popular and highly cited.

61 A wilder range of international journal collection is needed
More newly published books are needed
62 希望可以增加電子期刊藏量,也期望教大的期刊可以有ONLINE VER.
63 電子書成日load唔駛頁數出黎 Comments noted. Please report the case to the Information Counter or email us (libinfo@eduhk.hk) so that we could investigate the problem immediately.
64 Some platforms of e-books are not accessible. The link leads me to the page but then it requires me to log in but actually I don’t have an account for that platform ( I have tried to use eduhk account to log in).
65 The library website for searching books and journal articles is very slow and it always lacks for a long time even though I am using a desktop computer.
66 大埔兒童館藏有好些書available但找不到 Please contact counter staff for immediate assistance if users have trouble locating particular items in the Library.
67 Sometimes, the books shown “available” in the system cannot be found on the indicated book shelf.
68 有時電腦上顯示在某處有某本書,但是在那個地方並不能找到書。
