Editorial Note: The Case Studies

By Dr Sadie-Jane Nunis, Editor-in-Chief

Dear Readers

Hope everyone is healthy and safe.

In this journal issue, we are pleased to have some distinct case studies to chew on as various libraries, both from Singapore and Malaysia, share their experiences in the areas of tackling social media, institutional repositories, and info-literacy.

These may not be new topics to most however, some of the approaches taken by the institutions in relation to their areas of focus can be deemed rather innovative.

We will be putting out a new call for papers soon so do keep a lookout for that in the very near future.

On behalf of the Editorial team, we express our appreciation to all the contributors for their submissions. Thank you as well to the peer reviewers who put in their time and effort into helping to vet the papers and give their inputs.

I would like to express my gratitude to my Editors as well—Leng Foong, Jamila, and Lee Ping, you have been so easy to work with and I am glad to have your support for these journals for the past few years.

More importantly, we hope that you, the reader, garner helpful insights from the various papers.

Until next year’s issue.

Season’s greetings and hope 2024 is a good one for us all.
