Eco-city is a strategic cooperation project between the governments of China and Singapore. To promote regional development of social undertakings, in October 2015, the new senior vice premier chaired a meeting between the two countries, the two sides signed bilateral friendly cooperation letter of intent for the construction of library, and in February 2016, the main structure start venues, on September 28, 2018, in the ten anniversary of the establishment of eco-city construction, new formal completion.
China-singapore bilateral to build the domestic first-class, international influential book archives as the goal, efforts to build a green ecological breath, show wisdom science and technology, and rich in humanity's demonstration of public cultural services center. There are five main features:
First, to achieve a scientific and reasonable layout. The pavilion covers an area of 35,000 square meters and a building area of 67,000 square meters. It is composed of two individual structures, library and archives. Now it has 560,000 copies of paper documents, 110,000 files and 75 databases. The venue is divided into five floors. The first floor is mainly for parking and operating equipment rooms. On the second floor are various theme pavilions, archives service halls, archives exhibition halls and Shared atrium. The third floor is the multimedia service area, the book lending area and the archives warehouse. Four layers and five layers are only open the multi-function hall and office area, the appropriate space, can not only meet the actual demand, and leave space for future development, as the spread of the business, other area will also enable step by step.
Second, adhere to the concept of green ecology. Firmly grasp the development characteristics of eco-city green, low carbon, environmental protection, at the beginning of the project construction, is full of the national green building evaluation standard, dedicated to carry out the green book research of archives, and won third prize of scientific and technological achievements, won the national archives and the application of relevant research results to the venue during the process of design, construction and operation. Renewable energy sources such as geothermal energy and solar energy are adopted in the museum. Natural light and wind are introduced to the maximum extent, and the recycling of water and rain water is realized.
Third, it reflects the achievements of practical cooperation. Fully advanced management mode of national library of Singapore, in combination with the practical situation of area, set up with bilateral friendly library as the main library, community, enterprises and organs for branch area such as the "situation" service system. There are also 1,600 square meters of theme pavilions in Singapore and 1,000 square meters of eco-children's pavilions designed by a professional team in Singapore. At the same time, we have cooperated with the national library authority of Singapore to carry out multi-level training for librarians.
