Summary: The iCafe @ Library Exhibition was held in conjunction with TP Orientation for Freshmen in 2000. The iCafe, an interactive virtual library guide was designed to introduce, in a fun and relaxing way, the services and facilities that the Library had to offer to new patrons and visitors. Based on the popularity of the coffee culture here, the cafe concept as a virtual library guide was designed by 2 Student Internship Programme (SIP) students from the Temasek Information Technology School. Inside the cafe, users could visit the Cyber Club, Edutainment Hall, view Highlights and browse the different "Coffee powders" (library collections) offered and be acquainted with "Student specials" such as past exam papers and information on recommended book collection. To publicise the exhibition, a banner was hung outside the Library and a model dressed prettily as a wait staff graced the entrance to the special display on Info cafe at the Library Exhibition Hall, level 2. The iCafe @ Library Exhibition ran from 26 June to 14 July 2000.
