Collaboration with Hong Kong Maritime Museum Ltd. (HKMM)
On 20th December 2012, the Centre and Hong Kong Maritime Museum Ltd. (HKMM) signed a MOU for establishing a mutual collaboration in the areas of maritime library, education, training and research.
This joint effort aims at developing additional channels for promoting maritime education and training, further enhancing the utilization of the resources in both organizations and expanding the service groups through joint activities/programmes, and reciprocal support on sharing information, resources and intelligence.
The two organizations would work on a Joint On-line Catalogue as a start, and endeavor to promote and develop collaborations on areas with common interest from time to time.
Joint Online Catalogue
The Joint On-line Catalogue is the first collaboration project with CSSC Maritime Heritage Resource Centre of Hong Kong Maritime Museum (HKMM) being carried out in 2013. The catalogue is known as OPAC, a user friendly and joint interface possessed and maintained by HKMM.
Users can search items held by the Centre and Resource Centre of HKMM through this on-line catalogue. The subjects include maritime and commerce law, shipping and logistics management, supply chain management, economics, naval architecture and maritime history, etc. The catalogue had been in use until 2021.
