To meet an increasing need for the printing of microforms,
two additional microform reader/printers were purchased and
installed in the Microform Reading/ Printing Room in May.
For the convenience of library users, all the reader/printers
in the room now have side tables attached.
More than two hundred Hong Kong-related documents of the FCO
40 (files of the Commonwealth Office and Foreign and Commonwealth
Office, Great Britain) have been acquired from the Public
Record Office, UK (http://www.pro.gov.uk).
Contained in 25 reels of microfilms, these files were produced
during the period from 1967 to 1969 and contain much material
on the riot of 1967 in Hong Kong. A content list compiled
by the Special Collections for this series is shelved in the
Microform Room for easy reference.
