Our annual E-Resource Discovery Day took place on Oct 7th this year and many of the library vendors came to the forum, set up their booths and got ready to show NUS students and staff how they could effectively use the treasure trove of electronic resources available through the library.
Throughout the day, many students came and interacted with the vendors, learning and getting goodie bags at the same time. There were also lunchtime performances by Deon Toh, Alpha Verve and the NUS LindyHoppers.
In all, the event attracted about 550 NUS students and staff. Many who came by were pleasantly surprised at our extensive e-resources and were glad that they had the opportunity to learn about these in a fun way. Through ERDD and its related activities (e.g. the pre-event online quiz, the event day Treasure Hunt, etc.), we really hope to increase awareness amongst the NUS community of the resources available to them and from there, usage as well.
