Wishing You a Happy and Prosperous New Year 2011

Jubli Perak 1986-2011 Silver Jubilee

By June 2011, Bolkiah Garrison will get its very own multi-million Archives Building at a cost of B$3.3 million. The two-storey building will have a floor area of approximately 2,000 square metres. The design aspires to a modern simplicity and timeless aesthetics to withstand the 21st century's changing place and styles. The initial design concept was derived from the building's overall form - a simple box-like profile. To make it more distinctive, modern design elements and local cultural identities were also carefully integrated. The building will comprise a lobby/reception and security, public reference section, general office, praying rooms, sorting zone, scanning area, index/cataloguing, an annex building (for temporary storage), fumigation and freezer rooms on the ground floor with the archives and storage room on top.

NATIONALLY RECOGNISED TRAINING FOR LIBRARY SUPPORT STAFF Since the closure of paraprofessional courses at Temasek Polytechnic some years ago there has been no formal avenue for skills development and recognition for support staff in Singapore libraries. More and more support staff undertakes responsibilities which are crucial to library operations and yet have few opportunities in relation to external training. LAS has, over the past few years, participated in the development of Library and Information Industry competency standards as part of the mapping of Singapore creative industries under the Workplace Skills Qualification (WSQ) initiatives of the Workforce Development Authority (WDA). LAS applied for, and has been granted the status of Approved Training Organisation (ATO). Last year a group of LAS members also undertook to complete the WDA approved Advanced Certificate in Training and Assessment (ACTA), which is a pre-requisite for all those who wish to develop, train or assess in programmes operating within the WSQ framework. This year the first entry level (WSQ Level 2) training programme was developed and run. Since August there have been four iterations of the first programme: Support General Reference and Information Enquiry. This programme, consisting of 2 days of training plus a short assessment at a later time has now graduated some 60 participants assessed as competent. The feedback from the participants has been very positive, with particular praise for the approachability and competence of the trainers. Also importantly, many participants thoroughly enjoyed the programmes as well as learning useful skills. The first WDA/LAS Statements of Attainment have been issued. From January 2011, the remaining four Level 2 courses:    

Support Collection Maintenance Support Acquisitions and Serials Work Provide Loans and Membership Services Support Bibliographic Control

will be delivered each month at training facilities at Toa Payoh by our ACTA recognized trainers. Anyone who has been assessed as competent and received Statements of Attainment issued by WDA and LAS for all five programmes will be eligible to receive a WDA Higher Certificate. LAS hope to “graduate” the first participants with the Higher Certificate just after the end of March 2011. Go to page 6

Information technology has changed the services that can be provided by the library. The demands of users currently is at par with the development of ICT where the services need to be quick, accurate and easily accessible. To meet these demands the Medical Library RIPAS Hospital has moved on to become an electroic library by subscribing to electronic databases of books and journals and medical databases. With it the Medical Library has created this website to ensure users are informed about its existence which provides them access to information from their desktops. Objectives a. to assisit users in the search for various medical information sources and related subjects; b. to disseminate services provided by the library;. Go to page 5

From page 3 To date the courses have only been advertised to LAS members but will be given a wider advertisement next year. The Training and Development Committee wishes to thank the developers, trainers and assessors and those who have contributed administrative support for getting the programme established. It has not been a simple matter. The future plans for LAS T&D are to continue and improve the Level 2 programmes so that, no matter where library support staff is, there are on-going opportunities to learn, share and enjoy entry level programmes such as these. Another group is working on developing Level 3 standards with the intention that the supervisor level of support staff may also, in due course, have access to recognised training.
