Get a head start by attending the Library Orientation

  1. Get to know the library’s resources (books, journals, articles, research papers, final year project reports, etc.) and how you can search for them via OneSearch (NTU Library’s discovery layer powered by Primo and Alma). Don’t just limit yourself to using Google Scholar / Google Search. Try out the features of the library’s web discovery layer, and you’ll be surprised by the results that you get. Some of the features include: filtering by format type, limiting to a specific period, emailing, exporting your results to a citation management software such as Endnote and many more.
  2. Join the library tour, and explore the library facilities and services. Be inquisitive and ask questions, lots of them. There are spaces for you to study or even get a cat-nap also exercise on the Eco-Bike while charging your mobile phone.

  3. If you missed the library orientation, don’t fret. Simple approach the friendly librarians at the Desk and request for one. You can also learn more by scheduling a 1-on-1 session with the librarian. You will get to know the available resources relevant to your area of study, assignments, and projects.
  4. Last but not least, all the best in your education journey.
