ERDD 2012

This year, our E-Resource Discovery Day (ERDD) took place on September 13. There was a mixture of many familiar elements as well as a touch of the new.

As usual, our vendors came to showcase the library’s e-resources. We had a forum quiz in the form of a scavenger hunt with the rewards being a goodie bag and a chance to take part in the lucky draw. We received more than 500 entries for this quiz and it was truly heartening to see so many students and staff engaging with our vendors. We also had an online quiz prior to ERDD day, which garnered over 500 entries! This was definitely the largest number of entries we have ever received!

Even though we decided against having performances this year, we had a game booth during lunch hours. Participants had to throw a dart to qualify for a question. If they answered the question correctly, they would win a prize. The game allowed students to learn about e-resources in a fun way while winning prizes. We gave out more than 180 prizes at the game booth. Apart from learning about the databases and e-journals available in the library, we also took the opportunity to promote our new discovery service, FindMore@NUSL.

Here are the prize winners for the various draws:
