Knowledge without Boundaries, Charity with a Cause

On the morning of Sept 16th, many of the library vendors came to the forum, set up their booths and got ready to usher in E-Resource Discovery Day 2010 (ERDD). They were ready to teach NUS students and staff how they could effectively use the wealth of electronic resources available through the library in their studies and research.


Throughout the day, a constant flow of students came and interacted with the vendors, learning and getting goodies at the same time. Some students visited every booth while some just preferred to have detailed sessions with vendors specializing in their subject areas. There were also performances (Deon & our Library dancers), lucky draws and of course, everyone’s favourite Milo van!

In all, the event attracted more than 600 NUS students and staff. Many who came by lauded our extensive e-resources and were glad that they had the opportunity to ask questions. Through ERDD, we hope that each person who came by left with a little bit more knowledge about our abundant resources and a lot more assurance that the Library is there for them.
