April 2014 Update

Hi all,

Welcome to the new Financial Year (for most of you) – and yeah, it’s April Fools’ day, there would be some pranks played throughout the day but we will survive them.

Some news from our libraries,  Temasek Polytechnic Library is now headed by Ms. Puspa Yeow, this was with effect from July 2013 last year.  My apologies for finding out late about this – here is where the publications team needs help from members, please keep us informed by dropping us an email to alert us of changes at your libraries!

NUS Libraries is now headed by Mrs. Lee Cheng Ean, with effect from March 2014.  We will be contacting Mrs. Lee to find out more about her role change and her vision and plans for NUS Libraries.

Congratulations to both Puspa and Mrs. Lee on their new roles!

In the mean time, at NLB, we were also informed of a huge change in terms of email address naming convention.  For those of you whom may have contacts with NLB Librarians, please remember to double check if their email addresses have been adjusted.  Take for example my email address has been updated from chinchuan@nlb.gov.sg to YIT_Chin_Chuan@nlb.gov.sg

This will take effect immediately, from 1 Apr 2014, although the old email addresses would be valid for some time still, it will be good for you to update the contact details of your friends from NLB.

Please also watch out for the news about our up-coming LFT 2014 event from the project team.  The selected theme for this year is “People, Places, Possibilities” – everyone is invited to put up papers relevant to the theme, you may submit them to publications@las.org.sg – we will make sure the organising team will get to review them.

A gentle reminder that next month, our AGM is coming up, so please watch out for the details from our Hon. Gen. Secretary!
