BTW, I noticed Dipankar linked to only one part of the NLB eCollection. While he wasn't wrong to use the term "Singapore Digital Library", technically it would be more correct to say "NLB Overdrive collection" (i.e. 'Overdrive' is the vendor from whom NLB paid money to subscribe to the digital content).
There are other "Digital Collections" at where I jokingly call the "eSection" -- because everything there is prefixed with an "e":
- eBooks (where the Overdrive collection is just one)
- eArchive (where mrbrown and team made a hilarious podcast about it)
It's nice to read comments from library customers like Dipankar, who wrote at the start of this post that "We in Singapore are fortunate because we have such a wonderful library system" and how he could "wax lyrical about the library until the cows come home".
But what's even nicer is to have library customers share information, tips, "How To" guides etc. for the benefit of others.
