Guess who this librarian is and win a Kinokuniya voucher.
It is always a delight to get to know our students and lecturers, and we would like you to get to know us too. To start with, guess who this librarian is. A tea connoisseur with an expansive tea collection, she enjoys serving her teas when there are guests at her library. This lovely librarian’s smile and her love for books will make you an avid book lover in no time.
So folks, get to know your librarian and the fun things she does with databases! Email us the following: the name of the librarian, the library she works at, and how you got to know her by 1 October, 5pm, and we’ll pick the first reply with all the correct answers. Only current NUS students can participate in this quiz, and please send only one answer using your NUS email account.
The librarian will personally hand the winner a $10 Kinokuniya book voucher.
