Abstract: Building a platform for knowledge creation and engagement is a big task for librarians especially when incorporating social or new media. But, with the advent of new tools and open source technology, the librarians at Nanyang Technological University are able to sow the seeds in the library’s technology infrastructure. The initiative leads in the construction of a campus wide platform, adopting WordPress architecture to strategically align with its online information service. Subject guides are now able to reinvent the traditional reference services into a new way of seamless outreach and digital engagement. Seeds of engagement are sowed as the project team provides a platform of flexibility and interoperability for content creation.
