Au Revoir, Mr. Storey!

Dr. Colin Storey, University Librarian of CUHK, will retire by the end of November. In the latest issue of the Library Newsletter, Dr. Storey recounted his fond memories as an expatriate working in Hong Kong, ‘My family and I came out to Hong Kong in 1988, and we stayed here for 24 years. No one in Hong Kong has ever said to us, “What are you doing here?” This testifies not only to Hong Kong’s exciting vibrancy, but also to the willingness of Hong Kong people to embrace internationalism and to welcome any person from anywhere who is willing to work and help Hong Kong, in any way however small, to secure a strong future.’

Dr. Storey joined the University in 2000. Since then, he has launched a number of projects to enhance the University Library System, namely, the addition of over four million e-books, the Learning Garden and Learning Commons, the new Main Library Extension, the new Architecture Library, as well as roving help services and special zones for research students. He was awarded the 2011 Hong Kong Library Association Honorary Fellowship for his distinguished contribution to the development of librarianship and to services to the profession in Hong Kong. After retirement, Dr. Storey will move to a village in Suffolk, UK.

The Librarian’s interview is featured in No. 360 of the CUHK Newsletter.
