Course Reserves Coordinator Briefing

Reserve books or recommended course texts form an integral component of our Library collections providing support to our user learning needs. Our library held a session in May 2012 for School and College coordinators who have over the years helped us compile the required information received from faculty into the respective lists.  During this session, the Head of Acquisition gave an overview of the preparation process for the reserve book lists and Head of Engineering Library led a tour of new learning common areas at Lee Wee Nam Library.


Meta-analysing your community in DR-NTU












A metadata assessment was conducted on the subject categories* assigned to FYPS and theses submitted to NTU digital repository for two communities in year 2010. This comprised about 580 EEE and 240 CEE submissions. The results of this survey were plotted in a graph and also represented in a ‘cloud’ tag. Users may visualise subject categories mapped out for this specific submission year collection and find useful links to their areas of research interest. This is pilot report re-uses subject metadata in a way that the library hopes is of use to the NTU community. To access these reports in pdf files, click on the thumbnail below:
