2022 Library System Update Project

We are pleased to announce that the Library will begin to upgrade library system to the next-generation library system, Alma, on 20 June 2022.

After this upgrade, the Library can:
• Own a cloud-based system;
• Unify the access method of login library circulation records and access to e-resources;
• Have more capacity to support the learning, teaching, and research activities by streamlining the processing of library materials.

Before the upgrade, there are two things you might need to know about:
1. Backup your reading history
It is important to note that your reading records will NOT be migrated to the new library system. Therefore, please export your list on/before 19 June 2022 (Sunday). The list can be exported by Email and as a file.

Please follow the procedure below to do the backup:
i. Login to My Circulation Record;
ii. Click the button “Export My Reading List”;
iii. Select the “Format of List” and the delivery methods: Email OR Export to the local computer.
