About the Project
The Hong Kong Education Image Database is jointly developed by the Hong Kong Museum of Education (HKME) and The Education University of Hong Kong Library (EdUHK Library). Items included in this Database originate from the collections of The Education University of Hong Kong, the former Teacher Training Colleges (The Northcote College of Education, Rural Training College, Grantham College of Education, Sir Robert Black College of Education, Hong Kong Technical Teachers' College and Institute of Language in Education) as well as from donations and private sources
This Database has adopted international museum standards for the cataloguing and creation of metadata, including “Cataloging Cultural Objects” (CCO) and “Categories for the Description of Works of Art” (CDWA). As a result, images and their metadata can be accessed globally through the World-Wide-Web by anyone interested in education in Hong Kong.
This Database is still in its development stage, and its content will continue to expand. Additional functionality will be added as the project progresses.
Should errors be found in the Database, they are unintentional and will be rectified as soon as HKME and EdUHK Library are made aware of them.
The Hong Kong Museum of Education would like to thank the following individuals, schools and organisations for their donations or kind permission to allow us to use the materials for learning, teaching and research purposes.
The content of this database is made available for learning, teaching research and study purposes only. However, the images of this database is subject to copyright, any reproduction, adaptation, distribution or dissemination of the images without expressed authorization of the relevant copyright holders is not allowed.
