Each of us has a favorite hangout in school. For some, it’s the cafeteria where food is readily available; or the open court for fresh air and fun bonding sessions with friends. But there are also moments when we want to be alone. And in those times, we search for something different to do, something that we would enjoy—like reading. For the non-bookworms, here’s the thing about books: they are great company during “me time”. Not only will they transport you to fictional worlds, but also infuse your mind with valuable lessons about life.
Great news to college students! The library has a lot in store for you this coming school year!
Mr. Roderick Ramos, Library Coordinator, shared the college library’s new programs for A.Y. 2015-2016 with the Office of Public Relations. He said that although major programs have yet to be approved, the library intends to offer a set of breakthrough library conferences and training sessions themed on Phil-ASEAN Library Tourism and Hospitality. There would be a book fair slated in October and a training called Library Management 101: Developing Competencies of Non-library professionals during Saturdays beginning July.
“Last academic year, librarians were successful with their attempts to embed links of e-resources to SISC WEBOPAC at no cost and that stimulated SISC libraries to adopt more digital age innovations and embrace Library 2.0 through the KOHA. The forthcoming academic year promises virtual shelves for professional e-book titles across all course programs as the library implements its Total Quality Management (TQM) project.” The framework of a network-based access to information objects and/or sources augments and enriches existing holdings of SISC libraries, print and in e-formats. It costs less since systems installed are free and open-source software.
