Refreshments provided by SLA-ASIST SC.


In July 2010, Erenst went to Southeast Asia to be the LIS Program’s first intern at the National University of Singapore Central Library where he was introduced to the inner workings of a premier university library in Asia.  There, he learned about a different library system and organization.  In this informal talk story session, he will share his experience in ‘finding a missing librarian’/being a junior operative, the library’s outreach and social media initiatives, KPIs and PMS, and Singapore’s favorite past time of ‘makan’.

Erenst Anip is a 2nd year LIS student from Indonesia. As a future academic librarian, he focuses on digital technologies and social media features to enhance the library’s appeal to the users while keeping abreast of (Southeast) Asia area studies.  He is the project manager of Hawaii’s Digital Newspaper Project, part of Library of Congress’ National Digital Newspaper Project (NDNP), and he is the treasurer of SLA-ASIST SC.
