New LU Cards
Starting from July 2022, a new smart LU Card with different colors for different user groups aiming at “One LU Card for ALL Lingnanians” has commenced being issued to all staff, students and members of the Lingnan community. Security is enhanced with a higher standard of identity authentication and access authorisation.
Besides the physical smart card, a Virtual LU Card downloadable on smart mobile devices with the same design as the physical card will also be issued to designated groups of users. For current cardholders of designated groups including Alumni, Library Card Replacement Exercise will be launched later this year. These holders will be informed about the details in due course of activating their virtual card as well as returning their physical card to enjoy the same Library privileges entitled in the annual membership. Card readers enabling the tapping of the new smart cards have been installed at the entrance and exit gate, as well as the two Self-checkout machines, one in the Library lobby and another in the Course Reserves. Please be reminded that Library cards are individual and personal. They cannot be transferred to other parties. Loss of cards or change of address must be reported to the appropriate University authorities without delay.
