UH Mānoa's Special Libraries Association-American Society for Information Science and Technology (SLA-ASIST) Student Chapter proudly presents Singapore Stories: Internship Experience at the National University of Singapore Central Library by Erenst Anip in Hamilton Library, Room 301 on Friday, September 10 from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
In July 2010, Anip went to Southeast Asia to be the Library and Information Science (LIS) program’s first intern at the National University of Singapore Central Library where he was introduced to the inner workings of a premier university library in Asia. There, he learned about a different library system and organization. In this informal talk story session, he will share his experience in ‘finding a missing librarian’/being a junior operative, the library’s outreach and social media initiatives, KPIs and PMS, and Singapore’s favorite past time of ‘makan’.
Anip is a second year LIS student from Indonesia. As a future academic librarian, he focuses on digital technologies and social media features to enhance the library’s appeal to the users while keeping abreast of (Southeast) Asia area studies. He is also the project manager of Hawaiʻi’s Digital Newspaper Project, part of Library of Congress’ National Digital Newspaper Project (NDNP). Also, he is currently the treasurer of SLA-ASIST SC.
