Implementation of daily quota in using workstations at the Media and LAW areas

As our continuous commitment to improve library services, we will slightly adjust our PC usage policy so as to achieve a fairer allocation principle. The Library will implement a user-based 4-hour daily quota to PCs at the Media and selected PCs in the LAW areas with effect from 5 Oct 2020. The new measure will be applied to 43 PCs at the mentioned areas only, while current usage quota of PC usages at Information Space and Oval will remain the same.

Users are reminded to pay attention to the remaining time displayed on screen. Since the PCs will be shutdown automatically after reaching the daily quota, users are advised to save working documents to external or cloud storage regularly in order to avoid data loss. Please approach our counter staff for further enquiries. Your understanding and cooperation are greatly appreciated.
