Two years ago, my disappointing DSE result made me feel depressed and I wanted to escape from the bad feeling. This programme has transformed me. At the beginning of my study of HDLIM, I was still not gaining outstanding academic results. However, as time went by, the content of the course really caught my interest and made me gradually forgot my poor performance in the public exam. I highly recommend this programme since it provides professional knowledge in an interesting way that can facilitate achievement in study. Different internships can also equip us to face the challenges of the workplace.

Besides lectures, this programme also provides site visits and work placements for us. I did my placements in international school and university libraries, as well as a special library. I highly recommend this programme to those who are interested in information industry as it facilitates future study and career development.

This programme brings students new perspectives on library and information management. The interactive learning environment with site visits and professional placements help students put theories into practice. The information literacy skills and knowledge on library operations and management I have acquired in this programme provided me with a positive foundation for my further study and future career in this field. In addition, I gained practical skills on-site after working in the Pinsent Masons, Victoria Shanghai Academy, ISF Academy and Hong Kong Shue Yan University as an intern. The internship programme provided me opportunities to observe how information professionals manage the library at different perspectives – from end processing to handling library management systems and making collection development decisions.

  • Student of HKU Master of Science in Library and Information Management in 2015-16

This programme provides fundamental modules that equip students with knowledge in information management (IM) and librarianship. Having completed this programme, I was able to broaden my knowledge in IM and develop confidence to face different challenges in real-life environment. On the other hand, lecturers’ support was a key to the success in my study as they provided much academic and career supports through sharing of their knowledge and experience, providing advices in career path selection and professional guidance through frequent face-to-face interactions and email exchanges. After graduation, I furthered my study in the UK and completed my first degree, BSc in Information and Communications, and was admitted to MSc in Library and Information management in HKU afterwards. I highly recommend this Higher Diploma programme to those who are interested in studying in this field and taking information professionals as their career since this programme not just equips students with adequate IM and librarianship knowledge in the future workplace, but also paves the way for further studies in different specialism in different countries.

Two years ago, I was a local S.6 student who worries about my public examination results and my career prospects. Unfortunately, I was not able to get into university at that time. Life was fearful. “Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free.” where this course gives me another hope to get back into university, which set me free. In these two years, this course turned me into a better student and employee in the information industry. Besides, this course also provides us with internships, which put our professional knowledge gained in the lecture into practice.

At the age of information explosion, information comes in many forms. Many organizations and establishments require information professionals to manage and organize different materials. This programme assisted me to make adequate preparation and be well-prepared for becoming an information professional.

Also, I have gained real working experience in different types of libraries.

What you could achieve in this programme is inconceivable! To a large extent, this programme creates a platform for us to equip ourselves well before working in this competitive society. Apart from lectures, site visits to different kinds of libraries and information centres are arranged, giving us chances to explore more about the inner side of library work. Feedback from immediate supervisors during work placement is sincerely valuable for us to review our weakness in specific areas.

This program has definitely provided me with the knowledge and skills in order to meet challenges in the current information age. Interesting and interactive learning activities such as site visits and conferences have made me have a much better understanding of the theories. Working in both academic and public libraries during the past two years has enabled me to put into practice what I learnt from HDLIM and acquire new knowledge from the real situation. Therefore, this programme has certainly helped me to establish a firm foundation in the field. In actual fact, even before graduation, I am proud to say that I gained an offer from HKU and a permanent job.

Studying Library and Information Management was great fun. The lessons were highly interesting and practical. I got the chance to work in some famous institutions, visited different libraries, and went to various meetings, conferences, exhibitions and presentations. I achieved something I’d never thought I could. Last August, I participated in the Heleni Linton Bursary and I was so glad that my proposal and interview convinced the judges. This is the biggest accomplishment I've ever achieved and this could be yours.
