That one minute of video involved more than 5 hours of video shot and retake. But it was well worth it. Among the new features of OneSearch are:

  • Integrated login to all your library needs
  • Request for library resources and track the status from one integrated platform Integrated login to all your library needs
  • Personalise your searches under My Favourites Integrated login to all your library needs

KAUST Library Day 2016

It was a day of ‘bonding’ between the library and our community. Hosted people from different Research Centers, Core Laboratories, and Academic Division.  They were asking questions about our services, facilities, and our new discovery layer.  We had raffle draws, library quizzes, “Name the Discovery Layer” (aka search service) competition, library tours and our very own “coloring wall”.  One of the main prize giveaways was the “solar-powered  Bluetooth speaker”. Oh, not forgetting the fabulous food too.
