On 25 April 2013, 15 excited students and staff gathered at Central Library Theatrette One. It was the prize presentation ceremony for the Library User Perception Survey Prize Draw!
The 15 winners were randomly selected from the pool of participants of the Library User Perception Survey, held from 7 to 28 March. What made the event even more exciting was everyone knew they had won something. The live draw was for them to see for themselves which prizes they were getting.
The event started off with a welcome message by Deputy University Librarian, Mrs Lee Cheng Ean, who thanked the audience for participating in the Library User Perception Survey. Next, Senior Librarian Aaron Tay shared some highlights from the survey results, including sample comments given by the participants. A write up of the survey results will be published on the Library Survey website shortly.
Finally, it was the moment everyone was waiting for! Anticipation was high as University Librarian, Ms Sylvia Yap started drawing the winners’ names from a glass bowl. The draw started from the fifteenth prize. As more names were being drawn for the prizes, those whose names had not yet been called became more excited, as they would have better chances of winning the top prizes generously sponsored by the library’s partners.
The first prize winner, Ms Sandhya Chintalapati, walked away with an Asus 7 inch tablet, while our second prize winner, Ms Mukta Bansal, won an iPad mini.
After the draw and a quick round of photo-taking, everyone enjoyed a spread of pastries, coffee and tea. Conversation flowed and new friends were made.
We thank the NUS community for participating in the 2013 Library User Perception Survey. We received a total of 6,718 responses, with a response rate of 14.3%. Your contributions to the survey will help us perform better. Look out for the summarized results, which will be published later at the Library Survey website.
