Medium of Instruction: English
Using old documents and archives as sources for forensic investigative studies, along with new media’s approach to support research utilizing 2D animation, 3D modelling, 4K video recording, and Virtual Reality Photography, Run Run Shaw Library’s Lighthouse Heritage Research Connections (LHRC) is able to demonstrate to students how old media information is able to integrate with new media capabilities in bringing their study interests into visualization for assignments and/or Final Year Project(s). The speaker will not only indicate methods of retrieving archived documents, old newspapers, historical photographs and manuscripts for research, he will also provide examples of student projects which used new media practice for exhibiting and showcasing their work. This seminar will also look into cases of seeking copyrighted and licensed materials from institutions and, if necessary, access to authorized locations where fieldwork study is needed.
The speaker, Mr Daniel Lai is currently a Research Assistant at Run Run Shaw Library working with LHRC since September 2017. Mr Lai is a graduate of City University of Hong Kong’s Master of Arts in Communication and New Media programme where he worked in directing, writing, filming, and editing four LHRC documentaries during his studies, including one (The Preservation of the Yingxian Wooden Pagoda) receiving Best Short Documentary (February 2018) at the London Independent Film Awards (London, UK) and Best Student Documentary (2018) at the Asia Independent Film Festival (Bangalore, India). In the seminar, Mr Lai will introduce new media methods for forensic investigate research.

Did you know there was a time when Korea used Chinese characters in their literature and inscriptions? What if there was a platform to experience Korean culture and history through Chinese text?
A collaboration with Department of Linguistics and Translation, Chinese and History, along with Calligraphantasy and the Korean Association of Students at City University of Hong Kong, this student exhibition showcases selected calligraphy artwork from Korea and China while displaying the cross-cultural exchange found in Korean Classics and Si Ku Quan Shu Reading Collections from City University of Hong Kong. Of the 60 artworks from student research, 30 pieces were derived from Korean Classics while 30 were explored from Si Ku Quan Shu Collections. It is through these ancient documents where young researchers gained understanding of diverse heritage to choose the artwork available for viewing at Run Run Shaw Library’s 2F Exhibition Area. For personal tours, please contact Ms. Sandy LEE (firstname.lastname@example.org).

This exhibition showcases treasured items dating back to the Ming and Qing dynasties from our Library's Special Collection & Archive. This priceless collection gives a brief overview of Ancient China in terms of its history, society, geography, demography, travel, medicine, art and architecture. It also represents early cultural contact between China and the West. These items are invaluable records for the study of the history of China.
By showcasing our unique special collection we hope to explore collaboration and facilitate discussions about Chinese history within the CityU community.
So whether you are a teacher integrating primary sources into your class, an academic working on innovative research, or a student starting your project for an assignment, we want to partner with you and support your work in education, research and other academic studies in general.
This exhibition is held to commemorate the generous donation made by Dr Joseph Lee Chung-tak 李宗德 and other book donors.
