I have never seen anything as "sensible" as this before:

To ensure that your published works are easily retrievable and identifiable by the widest possible readership, I wish to remind all staff to give the address of this University i.e. "The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam" in their publications.

The addition of "Pokfulam" after the University's name is very important because an online search for the "University of Hong Kong", "Hong Kong University", or a similar variant will show up other tertiary institutions in Hong Kong due to the "generic" nature of our name. The inclusion of "Pokfulam" in the University's address will therefore ensure that searches are confined to outputs published by this University.

University of California, Berkeley? So what are the other campuses of HKU, huh?
