E-Library Project

Collection Sharing and Information Discovery System (CSIDS) with Enriched Digital Content

CIHE Library is undertaking an “E-library Project” in collaboration with the Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK), Chu Hai College of Higher Education (CHCHE), Hong Kong Shue Yan University (HKSYU) and Tung Wah College (TWC) in 2014-2016. A grant of over HK$50 million has been awarded by the Government of the HKSAR via the QESS to support the implementation of this initiative. The objectives of this project are two-fold:

(1) To develop an online “Collection Sharing and Information Discovery System” (CSIDS) which will facilitate the search for and retrieval of eBooks and other resources from among the five member libraries through a one-stop search interface, and
(2) To enhance the libraries’ digital content by building a shared eBook collection through collaborative purchases among the five participating institutions. It is expected that more than 20,000 e-books will be acquired through the Project.
