Loan Services

The library provides lending service to users who possess a valid faculty / student / alumni / staff library card. Users may borrow library materials by presenting their barcoded library card at the circulation counter.

Applicants for a library card should fill in an application form and submit a photo at the circulation counter. Baptist co-workers (who works in local Baptist churches) may also apply for a library card.

Borrowers are responsible for returning their loans on or before the due date.

Inter-Library Loan

As a member of the Hong Kong Theological Education Association, library users may borrow library materials from the other member libraries by presenting a HKTEA borrower ticket.

The loans by users should be obtained and returned directly to the lending libraries (Loans issued through this arrangement would be counted as part of the user's loan quota). However, requests for the photocopying of journal articles for research purpose could be made through the seminary library.
