Collection management at Ngee Ann

At Newcastle we are currently looking to bring together many of our small collections into one sequence, to make finding materials simpler for students. I was interested, therefore to see how many specialised collections ar identified at Ngee Ann. For example, there is the wealth creation section, lifestyle collections on different topics, graphic novels and entrepreneurship linked to the "founding father" section. The photo shows this section, dedicated to Lien Ying Chow, after whom the Library is named. 

This photo shows Bee Ang demonstrating how the enterprise books are displayed in small attractive alcoves. Some collections are virtual, rather than physical and the Library uses Primo to tag the virtual collections so that they can be browsed online.
