I enjoy visiting SPH Information Resource Centre from time to time.  I think I am a frequent visitor of the Library, hence, Mr Idris, the Librarian said I may be able to help briefing the new members who are first time visitor.

Well, I do not think so as SPH Information Resource Centre had evloved from time to time to match the new demands of the organisation. 

Every visit to the library allow me to update my understanding of their roles and services.  This visit is extremely inspirating as we are invited to view not just the Information Resource Centre, but also have a glimpse of 90.5 radio station/studio, RazorTV, and meet some DJ who are on duties.

It is an eye opening experience to me and I appreciate this visit organised by LAS Programmes and Social Committee. For LAS members who miss this opportunity, you may view and explore it the e-way!
