The Library is committed to enriching the learning, teaching and research experiences of library users. Based on feedback collected from previous library surveys and with consideration to the changing needs of our users, a review of the library checkout privileges was conducted. The Library has identified a need to adjust the checkout and request quotas for different user groups with reference to Books & CD-ROMs and Bound Journals.

With effect from 4 January 2021, the checkout privileges for Postgraduate Students will be increased to align with Academic / Research Staff. The privileges for Undergraduate Students will also be increased to align with Non-academic Staff. The checkout privileges for JULAC Borrower Card Holders will be the same as Alumni Borrower Card Holders. Summary of the changes is highlighted in BOLD below.
