New online audio-visual catalogue and shelf guides : red colour theme

Date: 2001

Content Type: Still Image

Summary: Temasek Polytechnic Library used a "red" colour theme to draw attention when it launched the online audio-visual materials catalog in 2001. Located prominently in front of the Learning Resource Centre (LRC) counter at level 4, the catalogue was developed using Procite, the popular bibliographic management software. The audio-visual catalogue was used to search and list all titles of a particular format (for example, music CDs, video tapes) or topic (for example, rock climbing). Virtual browsing of the shelves from the AV Catalogue PC was also possible. Alternatively, users could stroll down the aisles between the video shelves to browse the titles under the bright red coloured shelf guides.

Official re-opening of Temasek Polytechnic Library 2003

Date: 1995-2003

Content Type: Still Image

Summary: Temasek Polytechnic officially moved to its new premises in 1995 with the Library occupying an 11-storey building. In March 2003, Library embarked on a major upgrading work lasting 7 months. The upgrading work involved floor levels 2 to 10 and was completed in October 2003. While the renovation was in progress, a temporary library entrance was created on Level 6 when the main entrance was hoarded up for major renovation on Level 2 and Level 3. The Exhibition Hall on level 2 no longer existed after renovation. Instead, Level 2 had a new PC cluster area, a Reserved Book Room (RBR) for its Red Spot collection and the New Arrivals display next to it as well as a sorting room for the RFID return & sorting bins. A brand new concept floor called the Lifestyle floor replaced the Business reference floor on Level 3 offering cable TVs, sound domes, the Podium, lifestyle books and newspapers and periodicals collections. The renovation also resulted in consolidation of service counters, re-grouping of resources and facilities for better access and navigation. Learning Resource Centre (LRC) had a brand new entrance and new shelves for its non-print collection on Level 4, while Level 5 became the Reference floor housing the reference collection, a research room and a bright orange coloured information counter. Levels 9 and 10 which previously housed the design collection and other facilities were re-designed to house the Seminar and Training Rooms (L9), and the Directorate Office, previously at Level 2 was relocated to Level 10. The end result of the renovation was a radically modified building facade with a new library entrance enhanced with new sliding doors to replace the existing swing doors to allow for better access and traffic flow into the Library. The Library was officially re-opened with a new facelift by guest-of-honour Mr Boo Kheng Hua, Principal & CEO on 22 October 2003.
