EAST Librarians Knowledge Sharing Workshop 2017 (LKSW2017)


Participants will visit four libraries in one day.  The starting point will be the UWCSEA East campus in Tampines (where the conference is being held).  Depending on the size of the group, the tours may be in mini-buses or taxis (all fares covered by the US$40 registration cost).

Delegates going on the tour should plan to arrive at UWCSEA East Campus in Tampines by 7:45am at the latest, because the buses will leave sharply at 8am. We will be providing a packed lunch on that day to ensure that you have plenty of time to spend in these great libraries.


On Wednesday afternoon February 15th the tour will finish at the National Library Board (Singapore) Library@Orchard and tour participants will have the opportunity to meet up with the people who have been attending the pre-conference for a social event (at own cost) if they wish.

On Thursday afternoon February 16th the tour will finish at the new library at UWCSEA Dover to meet up with the people who have been attending the pre-conference and delegates who have already arrived for LKSW . There will be refreshments provided at the Dover Library.
