Water Proofing Works on the Roof of the University Library & Special Arrangement during the Construction Period (2007/09/20)

Dear All,

According to the Bulletin News posted by CDE on 17 Sept 2007, “very loud noise is expected to be generated during the first 35 days” in the water proofing works on the roof of the University Library from 24 September 2007 (Monday).

To minimize the inconvenience caused and to continue to make the Library an ideal place for learning and reading, the Library will implement the following “damage control” measures:

(1) As the second floor of the Library will probably be most affected, we will therefore --


  • Open up more reading space on the lobby floor;

  • Set up 2 temporary group discussion rooms and 2 temporary faculty study rooms on the first floor;

  • Move, depending on the actual situation, the current newspaper/periodical reading area to the lobby floor;

  • Allow readers to take the non-current newspaper/periodical from the second floor to other floors for reading, and our staff will do our best to reshelf them;

(2) There will be some relocation of offices in the Library.

In addition, if you wish to book any venue in the Library during the roof-top work project, please take the noise problem into consideration, or you may like to come to the Library first to assess the level of noise generated during this period before you make your booking.

Thank you for your attention.
