    First of all, this is a free service for Singaporeans. So if you're a Singaporean, all you need to do is register on eResources at the National Library Board website and you can already access the many business research documents from Aberdeen Group. Their documents can be viewed from all our libraries and can also viewed from home. I'm not sure if this is also offered in other countries though. If you register on the Aberdeen site, 1 year access is $995.00.

    To give a brief overview of what it has to offer, please read below.

    That's a great resource Nazreen, thanks for sharing. There are some reports on the site that are free for all visitors, for others they are looking for a hefty fee.

    Aberdeen Group is based in Boston, what is the connection with Singapore?

    Our National Library Board probably has some agreement with Aberdeen Group. Aside from Aberdeen Group, we can also access a lot of ebooks here for free but I only mentioned Aberdeen's Research Library here because it's the only one related to business.

    It's cool to hear that libraries are embracing modern information delivery. I believe that Irish libraries focus solely on traditional hard back and paper back books. Hopefully they will become more innovative and start offering ebooks, to the benefit of the library members and also to the benefit of ebook writers.

    Why do you say that? This thread is about a service available in Singapore.
