Genesis of the Alliance

To support and follow the "One-hour Academic Circle" proposed by the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau University Alliance in November 2016, the University of Macau Library, agreed with by the Sun Yat-sen University Library in Guangzhou and the Chinese University of Hong Kong Library, had initiated to establish the "Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau University Library Alliance", ushering in the birth of a "One-hour Library Circle". Other university libraries in the three regions will be invited to join the Alliance.

The purpose of the Alliance is to facilitate the three regions in their move towards the knowledge-based economy era, to deepen academic exchanges and research cooperation among them, to promote the cooperation among the major university libraries, and to provide support to the development of the Greater Bay Area in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau.
