I worked in this building. It was the general library of my university. It used to be a popular place for students. But now only staff of library and some researchers work in it. Some space remains warehouse of library, some turns into the gallery of university history, and the rest is for college of liberal art. Well, the gallery is organised by librarians, so most of places are still library business.

'The library is the heart of the university' is a clichés to all my fellow classmates. I do not want to discuss how important it is or where it should be located. Scholars are not sparing with money to build the library. Therefore, libraries are usually good representatives of universities. I guess every university which issues postcards at least has one of the library.

People from Hong Kong mainly speak Cantonese. After the Handover, they restart to build up their Chinese identity and their new local identity. On the other hand, Hong Kong is a global city. While Taiwan is a place for people from all over China mixed up, Hong Kong is a showcase for the westerns to know Chinese. Hong Kong people now are world citizens.
