HK establishes library reporting website; Spokesperson: “Further safeguarding national security”
The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) has launched a new reporting channel starting yesterday (6th), allowing citizens to easily and conveniently provide feedback on the collections of the Hong Kong Public Libraries. This further ensures the appropriateness of the library collections, ensuring that there is no objectionable content that violates Hong Kong laws or poses a threat to national security.
The reporting website is called “Collection of Opinions on Library Collections.” If citizens suspect any illegal or objectionable content in the library collections, they can submit their feedback through a predefined form or email. When filling out the form, citizens need to provide information about the collection, including the title, relevant sections, page numbers, and paragraphs. The Public Libraries will follow up on the information provided, which may involve temporarily removing the collection and reviewing its content. However, individual responses will not be provided for each feedback.
