Medical Library System of The University of Hong Kong

Accessible at the Academy Library

The Academy has made arrangement with the University of Hong Kong to allow Academy Fellows to access their Medical Library System via Internet at the Academy Library for a trial period of 3 months, from 1 April to 30 June 2004.  During this period, Fellows can use the three designated computers at the Academy Library on 3/F to access the electronic information and digital medical resources of the University medical library system free of charge.

Fellows utilizing the facility are requested to complete a simple questionnaire per unit use.  Information collected from the questionnaires will be used by the Academy to assess the related need of Fellows, and to determine if such service will continue in the future.  The Academy Library opens from 12:00 to 21:00 from Mondays to Saturdays; and from 9:00 to 21:00 on Sundays and public holidays.

An EGM will be held at 7:00 pm on 20 May 2004 (Thursday) at the Council Chamber, 10/F, HKAM Jockey Club Building, 99 Wong Chuk Hang Road, Aberdeen, Hong Kong to admit new Fellows.
