ITE Library & You
ITE Library is expanding our scope in all three college locations to better cater to our users – You!
The new ITE Library vision – “where communities meet and knowledge is created” – will turn each college library into a hub for interaction and exchange of ideas, a hotbed for discovery and learning… and we can only do this with your involvement and support.

What's in store for you?
Simple, programmes that cater not just to students but to staff as well!
  • LIS3.1 “Delivering Info-Smart Lessons” is a hands-on course that gives you the know-how in sourcing for more interesting teaching and learning materials, and tips on accessing free, high quality databases! With 3 runs already completed, and the upcoming one on 16 Sep 2016 fully subscribed – look out for the next one on 22 Mar 2017!
  • LIS3.2 “Ethical Use of Digital Content” is a new course coming up with pilot runs in Nov and Dec 2016!
    A compulsory module under the PD Framework for ICT-enabled Teaching & Learning, you’d be learning how to deal with copyright and citation issues. Do watch for it!
  • GLEES activities for students help to enrich their learning and develop their confidence! Check out our highlights and events, and don’t let your students miss out. We work with external organisations as well as with you, to bring quality activities that would excite and educate our students.
LTs can use the Library as a platform for their students’ project assessments, awareness talks and CCA show-and-tell! By giving them a different environment to showcase their work and talents, students’ capabilities are stretched and honed.

What else in store for you?
The new Library Digital Portal should be ready by Aug 2016 and it will offer intuitive features like recommendations of similar titles you search, and more intensive search into even our digital resources!
 

We’re looking into making new purchases of online resources for staff and students, and are currently piloting a few.
Take a look at Lynda.com! With more than 4,500 quality training videos taught by industry experts, it makes learning 24/7 a breeze!


What else in store for you?
You must have noticed our new Logo design for the Library and we’re proud to also reached and exceeded our initial 7-year Library Development Plan with your contributions!
Some quick figures to show you how we’ve grown with you in the last 7 years…
And we can accomplish more with you…
  • Thank you for the continued support of the ITE Library and we’re excited to have you as our partner in supporting life-long and life-wide learning!
