Certificate Awarding Ceremony


OAPS is a joint initiative between the Library and the academic departments to collect students' quality papers, preserve them in digital format and share them within the University and beyond so as to provide perpetual access to our students' research output. 2015 marks the tenth anniversary of the project. With the dedication and support of the academic departments, the Library has collected 71 best papers nominated by 15 departments. Since 2005, 436 outstanding papers by CityU students have been collected and are available for loan in the Library's Semi-Closed Collection and have been digitized and are accessible via the CityU Institutional Repository http://dspace.cityu.edu.hk/. OAPS has developed a collaborative partnership with universities in the United States and various regions in the Asia-Pacific rim, such as Mainland China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand, and an OAPS Portal site has been set up and harvested 3,113 outstanding academic papers as of April 2014 from its member institutions.

A selection of the awarded OAPS papers are on display at the Library Oval area.
Panel exhibition on the OAPS Project is adjacent to the User Education Room of the Library


Prof. Wing-heun Ip of University System of Taiwan and Dr. Avnita Lakhani of School of Law will be our guests of honor and facilitators for the sharing sessions with the awardees.
