Digital Scholarship Services

Digital scholarship is an area of research and teaching that uses digital technologies to extend the life of scholarly sources and create research tools, with a view to facilitating information sharing and new research findings. Through collaborating with professors and researchers, the Library supports digitization with OCR, data visualization, GIS applications, corpus development, crowd-sourcing projects, e-journal publishing, among other areas. We hope to provide a stronger support for the University's vision of teaching and research, data analytic, and knowledge sharing.

For metadata standardization and the facilitation of enhanced data discovery (via Google & other means) and data sharing, the following mechanisms have been in use since 2020 and applied to all our digital projects as much as possible:

  1.   RDF with schema.org as the metadata structure
  2.   RESTful API
  3.   JSON-LD
  4.   open graph protocol

HKBU Library is the only    member in HK and China
