“Expectations of the Administration From The Library in Support of Its Institutional Objectives”

3 June 2011

Dear Colleagues:

Warm greetings from PLAI-NCR!

Library and librarians’ work is never ending and always changing. The nature and expectations of the performance of library tasks and duties have changed and evolved dramatically in the last few decades. It is now more than ever, that information professionals are being compelled to make their presence felt by their institutions and more importantly by the administrators and other stakeholders. It is based on this premise that the Philippine Librarians’ Association, Inc.–National Capital Region (PLAI-NCR) Librarians’ Council in cooperation with the Academic Booksellers Association of the Philippines (ABAP) invite librarians, information professionals, library support staff, teachers and students of library and information studies to attend and participate in a Forum on the topic “Expectations of the Administration From The Library in Support of Its Institutional Objectives”

This Forum specifically aims to:

1. Promote effective partnership between the administration and the librarian in the realization of the institution’s vision and mission.

2. To encourage involvement in the optimal utilization of library resources and services by:

a. Providing library updates to the administration and members of the faculty

b. Continuing to motivate clienteles to read and use the various resources in the library.

We have invited Dr. Benjamin G. Tayabas, President of Technological College and CHED Consultant, as our Resource Speaker.

This forum will be held on July 12, 2011 at the Megatrade Hall 5th Floor, Building B of SM Mega Mall, Mandaluyong City from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. This shall coincide with the 15th ABAP Book Fair. Fees to be assessed are as follow: PLAI members PHP200.00, non-PLAI member PHP 250.00, undergraduate students PHP 100.00. These shall cover the Registration fee, certificate of participation and snacks.
