Use of Library Facilities 

  • Food and Drinks

There are water dispenser for users on each floor of the Library. Food and soft drinks are not permitted in the reading area of the Library as any accidental spillage could attract insects, including ants, that may harm the collections.

  • Handling original documents/photographs in the Library

The Library seeks users’ cooperation to wear lint-free cotton or latex gloves when handling original documents (including private papers) and photographs/colour slides. This is to prevent fingerprints, body oil from fingers, nail polish, residual chemicals from hand cream, sweat, etc from being transferred onto the materials while handling them with one's bare hands. Paper-based materials are sensitive to such materials as these materials can cause physical deterioration to the fabric structure and inks on the paper. Although these contaminants may not be visible on paper, their presence could be illustrated by the photograph below taken on an iPad.
