The Libraries also maintain two Digital Collections, namely HKAPA Digital and the AudioMiner. A user guide on Library Digital Resources is available.
With the launch of the Digital Performing Arts Repository (DPAR) in 2013, selected items from the Academy Archive have been digitalised and kept in DPAR for ease of reference. It consists of documents, images, audios and videos of the Academy's productions, publications, theses and local performing arts resources.
The Library has migrated most items from DPAR to the new platform HKAPA Digital for enhanced search experience and unified resources management.
AudioMiner (campus access only)
AudioMiner is an online digital audio collection offering about 282,270 sound effects files and 45,300 production music tracks for use in Academy productions. It also offers 5.1 surround sound effects libraries to meet the requirements of HD productions. Users can search by different criteria to find the right sound or music tracks.
A collection of sound effect files of local ambiance created by the students and teachers of the School of the Film and Television has been added into the AudioMiner for the use of Academy staff and students.
