The eligible users can use the Hong Kong Academic Library Link (HKALL) service to request books that are not available at HKBU Library, and are available in other government-funded Hong Kong university libraries.

This includes those books that are in HKBU Library's collections, but are checked out to other users.

This example shows that Schiffman's Consumer Behaviour is available for borrowing from PolyU library:

The following steps show how you can request this item via HKALL:

1.    Sign into OneSearch with your BU email address and password. 

2.    If a copy with the status "Available" is found in at least one other university library, a "Request this title "via HKALL" link will appear under Get it at the Library

3.       Select your desired pick up location , then click " REQUEST "

(Note: If you are requesting a specific volume from a multi-volume series, please indicate the volume number that you want to request in the space provided)



After your request is successfully received, it will normally take 3-5 working days to be delivered to the Au Shue Hung Memorial Library (i.e. Main Library) or Shek Mun Campus Library for you to pick up. When your requested HKALL item is ready to collect, we will notify you by e-mail.

Please note that not all HKBU Library members are eligible to use the HKALL service. If you need help, please contact Library staff at 3411-7444.
