A Fully Refreshed Hong Kong Literature Database – Launch of the Beta Version

The CUHK Library is pleased to announce that a new platform of the Hong Kong Literature Database (HKLD) is now available to the CUHK community and the public.

The HKLD has been in used for more than two decades since its launched on 15 June 2000. It consists of nearly 588,000 records and its rich content have attracted local and overseas researchers ever since. To meet the increasing demands of users, the CUHK Library started last year to revamp the HKLD platform and enhance its search capabilities. The new features of the beta version include faceted search and search within results for further refined search results.  With the groundwork done by our Library on collecting pseudonyms of authors, the new HKLD allows a user to search with an author's different name. Furthermore, users can share search results through email. Hong Kong literature related activities are also available in the new platform.

As the beta version of the new HKLD is released, the old platform will be retired by the end of this year.
