Based on the recommendations of the University management, a university-wide integrated research information and management system (IRIMS) named Pure has been developed for the use of all academic and most administrative departments. With 3 linked modules, IRIMS will handle grant applications, the reporting of research output and activities, and the promotion of HKBU research accomplishments and expertise, all in a single integrated system.

The University Library is the Project Manager of 2 of these modules, namely the Publication Backend and the Research Portal.
