Ever wondered what librarians do? In this series of monthly talks, find out what makes our librarians tick as they share highlights of their work from the collections of the National Library.
In 2014, the National Library, Singapore became a member of the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL), the world’s largest open access digital library for biodiversity literature and archives. Since then, the National Library has built up a BHL Singapore Collection with close to 400 volumes of digitised books comprising selections from both the National Library’s Rare Collection and Singapore Botanic Gardens’ Library of Botany and Horticulture. Join Librarian Lim Tin Seng as he highlights interesting titles in the BHL Singapore Collection, which cover topics from the natural history of Singapore to the institutional records of the Singapore Botanic Gardens.
