Speaker: Tay Ai Cheng

Come hear how the innovative, award-winning National Library Board of Singapore (NLB) has embarked on successful efforts such as Read@Schools and SURE (Source, Understand, Research and Evaluate) to encourage reading and through public libraries across the country to raise the level of information literacy nationwide. In addition to learning how NLB works collaboratively with government and community groups to achieve societal goals within Singapore, NLB will discuss its leading efforts in the Asia Pacifica project, modeled after the Europeana, to share digital materials from libraries, archives and other content institutions in the Asia Pacific.

I really was inspired by the S.U.R.E. campaigns approach to information literacy. You really understand the barriers brought from an overly academic approach. I think your approach is relevant to college and university level students.

The Dare to read program you have looks really exciting as well

Tay, your approach to the issues you faced is awesome. I love your sense of humor.
