Welcome back seniors! Here are some of the things about NUS Libraries you might have missed while you were away.
1. Chrome now works with e-resources
Love your Chrome? So do we! That’s why we fixed the issue and you can now use Chrome to access the library’s e-resources. For more information see this blog post.
2. FindMore@NUSL: Powerful search service in testing
We recently launched a new Search Service called FindMore@NUSL. It has a clean, elegant search interface designed to bring back results quickly. Unlike our catalogue, the results include not just books, journal titles, and DVDs but also journal articles, newspaper articles, dissertations and theses (including those from ScholarBank) and more.
We are still testing this new service and adding more material, but it currently has over 160 million items already (compared to about 40+ million in Scopus, which is one of the biggest databases), most of which are available in full-text. Try FindMore@NUSL and give us your feedback so that we can improve it further!
3. New interactive library guide
In our bid to save trees, we are going digital with most of our guides. Have a look at our new interactive library guide. In particular, check out our dynamic social media page that pulls in feeds from our various social media Accounts.
4. Water dispenser in Medical Library
Another one under the “because you asked for it” department, we now have water dispensers in the Medical Library.
5. Winners of Moments @ NUS Libraries Photography Contest announced
The inaugural NUS Libraries’ Photography Contest which took place during the vacation drew 70 people and eventually the entry above by Ng Si Han (A00695XXX) was judged the winner by our panel of judges. For more details see this page.
These are just some of the recent interesting developments we have made. Stay tuned for more!
