Rules on Access and Usage

Food and Drinks

There is water dispenser for users on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the Library. Food and soft drinks are not permitted in the reading area of the Library as any accidental spillage could attract pests that would harm the collections.

Handling Original Documents/Photographs in the Library

The Library seeks the users’ cooperation to wear the gloves provided when handling original documents. This includes private papers and photographs/colour slides. This is to prevent fingerprints, body oil from fingers, 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.
