Reading online should be easy, but sometimes it presents frustrations. The Library has bought or subscribes to many e-book packages – but not all of them allow the full download to your own device for easy off-line e-reading.
To promote reading in general, and e-reading in particular, starting in late March, the Library is promoting Easy E-reading from those collections of e-books that allow unlimited concurrent users and easy full-download functions. This will allow the HKUST community to download and read wherever they are, during mid-term break and beyond.
How will it be promoted at HKUST? Mainly via physical posters with QR codes, although there is also an all e-book Collection Highlights
page at http://lbapps.ust.hk/highlights/e-reading
. We hope to continue making the campus an extension of the library, so HKUST community members can enjoy some e-books, any time and any place.
