About Us 關於我們

Hong Kong Libraries Connect (HKLC) is an independent group seeking to connect library professionals across sectors and build a community that contributes to local and international discourse about librarianship, from the unique perspective of those practicing in Hong Kong.

香港圖書館同行是一個獨立團體,致力連繫在圖書館與資訊管理工作有關的從業員 。我們成立的目的主要是為建立一個屬於香港圖書館界的社群,讓大家有一個平台去分享及探討在香港和國際層面上有關圖書管理學的個人經驗及議題。

In this community of practice, library professionals can learn from one another through formal and informal channels, support one another through professional development opportunities, and share experiences of the profession both face to face and through online channels such as the HKLC Blog and Twitter. HKLC also encourages the involvement of students studying library and information programs in Hong Kong, and aims to provide opportunities for active participation in professional development.

透過這個社群,圖書館界的同行能在正式及非正式的途徑,面對面及網上(例如HKLC博客,Twitter)渠道中互相支持和學習。在分享自身經驗的同時,各位同行亦可以在不同的專業發展機會上尋找協助或爲他人提供支援。香港圖書館同行非常鼓勵在香港修讀圖書館與資訊管理學的學生加入我們,我們亦都會盡力為同學們提供指導及職業發展的機會。

HKLC contributors share a commitment to advancing the profession. They are excited to experiment, try new things - and share what they have learned! The HKLC community supports and encourages innovative ideas and practices.

香港圖書館同行的幕後人員很喜歡發掘和嘗試新事物,迎接新挑戰,亦很喜歡與大家分享平日學到的東西。我們歡迎和鼓勵大家給予任何大膽創新的意見及建議,因為這樣不但能激發圖書館界的活力及潛能,還能驅使我們自己不斷嘗試,挑戰,和進步。

This website serves as a portal to coordinate participation in events and informal professional development opportunities, and to share and publish experiences of librarianship in Hong Kong.

FAQs 常見問題

What does your organization do that is different from other professional associations?

HKLC is a grassroots organization started by regular people that work in libraries with the aim of making a difference to the Hong Kong library community. Our defining characteristics include openness and inclusiveness. We are here to provide a platform for librarians and library professionals to interact and learn from each other in both formal and informal ways.  We will organize regular events and get-togethers. We are also hoping to set up workshops, guest speakers, and other types of event in the future as we grow. Come and be a part of our adventure and join our conversations!

香港圖書館同行的服務與其他圖書館專業機構有什麼不同?

香港圖書館同行成立的原因是希望可以為香港圖書館界作一點事,出一點力。除了使用網上和社交媒體的平台作交流互動,我們亦會定期舉行不同類型的活動和聚會。 香港圖書館同行的幕後班底都是於圖書館工作的平凡人,他們只希望有一個開放及包容的地方讓每一位圖書館人員都有機會參與不同議題的討論和不同類型的活動,分享看法及經驗。展望未來,香港圖書館同行計劃會開辦工作坊和邀請學者做分享。

歡迎你隨時加入和參與我們這個新團體,新體驗!

How do I participate?

HKLC does not run on a formal membership structure. In fact, it is based on a contributor-model in which active participation from contributors carrying different roles (e.g. blog writers, content translators, social media administrators) is supported by the core coordinators. You can fill out the form on this page to indicate your interest, or simply drop us an email at info@hklibconnect.org

As HKLC is not based on any formal membership structure, there is no membership fee charged.
