Using Library Space
The Library has worked hard to create a variety of spaces and facilities to serve the needs of all members of the HKUST Community – and it has been great seeing so many different kinds of non-Library functions and events availing themselves of these options.  Here are details of some of those spaces, and uses they have been put to in the past few months beyond those needed for the Library's own programs:
Special Collections Gallery on 1/F – This gallery serves multiple functions.  It is not only a showroom, but also a space for study during examination period, and a pleasant meeting place.
  • Deans/DIPO's Meeting
  • A ceremonial session for RAE Final Submissions
  • Student Tea Gathering with the President, including a gallery visit and a reception nearby.

  • Common Core Course Excellence Award ceremony
