Background

READ@Academy (Resources for Education and Development @ Academy for Singapore Teachers) is a specialised library which aims to provide quality information resources and services to support the professional and personal development of officers in the education service.

Teachers, Allied Educators (AEDs) and Executive Administrative Staff (EAS) enjoy membership privileges at READ@Academy. With a large collection of books and multimedia resources, READ@Academy aims to provide our officers with ready access to useful teaching aids and education-related literature for continual learning in the profession.

READ@Academy’s predecessor is READ@TN (Resources for Education and Development @ Teachers Network). Formed in April 2001, READ@TN was expanded from the former ETRC (Educational Technology Resource Centre) to a full-fledged library that included both print and non-print collections. After the launch of Academy of Singapore Teachers on 6 September 2010, the library was renamed READ@Academy and its collection was henceforth developed in line with the vision and mission of the new Academy of Singapore Teachers.

In March 2013, the MOEHQ Library, located at the Ministry of Education Headquarters building, was merged with READ@Academy. The name of the merged library remains as READ@Academy.
