It will be half a day learning journey where the tour would include presentations and tour at NLB’s Processing, Preservation & Conservation Studio, Digitisation Area and Legal Deposit Storage.
The Library Supply Centre is the place where we acquire and supply collections to all the Public and National Libraries in Singapore. Our division also manages the Legal deposit which is key to preserve the literary heritage of Singapore. At the same time, we process Donor Collections which are valuable Singapore and Southeast Asia materials to be kept at the National Library. The team here also handle digitisation & preservation in order to provide access to the important documentary heritage of Singapore, as well as to preserve them. It is also the inventory, logistics and storage centre for all NLB materials.
