To broaden your reach to learning and research resources, the Library has collaborated with other UGC-funded Universities to offer the Joint University Librarians Advisory Committee (JULAC) Library Card for your physical access of their libraries. 

In addition, under the terms of a special reciprocal arrangement reached with the Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) Library, Lingnan undergraduates can present their student cards to gain access to the HKBU Library without the JULAC card.

The following eligible users can apply for a JULAC Library Borrower Card for physically accessing the UGC-funded university libraries and checking out their library materials. The checkout privileges are subject to the policies of the corresponding host libraries.

  1. Academic and administrative equivalent staff members
  2. Full-time Research Assistants
  3. Postgraduate Students

Please use the online form for registration (Lingnan login required). The Library will issue the JULAC Card within 7 working days upon receipt of the application. An email will be sent to you once the card is ready for collection, please pick up the card in person at the Circulation Counter with your staff or student card.
