Tour: Central Library

How many libraries do we have?


Central library is the next stop up the road from FASS, and it is the largest library on campus. Although each faculty has their own library, I can't imagine why that is needed with the size of Central Library.

It is 6 stories tall, and has everything you could possibly need in a library: silent study areas blocked off with glass doors, areas for group meetings, hundreds of computers, areas specifically for printing/copying/scanning, and mile and miles of books.

The library uses the same cards as the MRT and Bus system for printing. You can fill your EZ Link cards at the library, and use them throughout the city. This system is amazing, and can even be used to pay off fines for turning in books late. While at NUS I decided not to buy any text books because I won't be able to bring them home with me at the end of the semester. Instead, I have been checking out textbooks before exams and anytime homework is due, so being able to use my EZ Link card has made this process very easy. This beats Clarkson's library by like 100x....
