However, it is important to remember that Chemistry related materials can also be found in other classes such as class Q (Science General), class QC (Physics), class T (Technology-General) and class TP (Chemical Technology). The following are subdivisions of the class QD and the locations of various types of materials.
|Physical and Theoretical Chemistry||QD450-801|

|Media Resources and Microforms||LG1|
|HKUST Dissertations and Theses||1/F|
Use the Library catalog part of PowerSearch to find books in the Library. Just un-tick the Primo Central box to search the Library Catalog only.
Note: The Library Catalog does allow searching to the article level. See Find Articles from Journals & Magazine (Part A: E-format).
HKALL lets you search for the books in the university libraries in HK simultaneously. Through it, you can also request for books from the other university libraries in HK to be delivered to the HKUST Library's Circulation Counter (G/F) for you to pick up.
An undergraduate can borrow up to 15 books via HKALL at the same time. For each book, the loan period is 15 days and two renewals are allowed.
