i-MAGBOOKS is a reading corner of UPM iDEC based on the ideas and discussions of its committee members. It is one of the projects under the 5S Committee. Taking the "Nature and ICT" concept approach, i-MAGBOOKS, was developed. The result of shared discussions, creativity and innovation has contributed to this reading.
Has two (2) bookshelves where the main bookshelves are made from pallet boxes that are transformed into small and medium sized boxes. Large pallet boxes have been made into shelves and wrapped in wooden paper wall in accordance with the natural concept.
FLOOR AND WALL
The installation of 'viynl' floors with a choice of bright colors gives a striking contrast to the reading angle with the existing workspace. To add more reading mood, the blank wall was previously adorned with 'wall paper' scenery, the main route to Universiti Putra Malaysia being the choice of iDEC staff through a 'survey'.
The book system provided by Mr. Mohd. Shafree Ahmad, is an ICT element implemented with i-MAGBOOKS (iDEC reading corner). With the menu accessible to the administrator, all contributed books will be downloaded into the system and labeled. All books are organized according to the labels that have been affixed to the book. With this system, iDEC residents will be able to find a list of available books and a synopsis. The system will be improved over time.
i-MAGBOOKS QR CODE
In addition to the system, a tablet is provided for visitors to view a list of books directly or browse through 'ebooks'. By applying a scan to the QR Code provided in the corner of the reading, visitors can also see the list of available book names.
iDEC makes full use of the space for weekly sharing sessions, reviews and reading materials, motivational sessions, discussion with external parties and sharing for 'Technology Update'. It will also be used for spiritual activities.
