Forum - -“The Value of the Library Profession in the Philippines”

December 7, 2011

Dear Colleagues,

The Bicol Region Librarians Council (BRLC) would like invite
you to attend a forum on the topic “The Value of the Library
Profession in the Philippines” on December 20, 2011 at 9:00-12:00
noon at the Instructional Media Center, University of Nueva
Caceres, Naga City.

This forum aims to discuss the current situation of the library
profession and education in the Philippines. The participants for
this forum are librarians and paraprofessional library personnel of
the region. Registration fee is P200.00 to cover meals and other

On the same day, we would like to recognize and award
distinguished librarians in Bicol. One of them is Dr. Perpetua S.
Porcalla, who has made a noteworthy contribution in the field of
librarianship particularly in Bicol. She was in the profession for
over 40 years. Under her tutelage, she produced numerous
professional librarians in the Region.

Also, we would like to give recognition to two librarians who were
in the 6th and 5th placer respectively in 2009 and 2010 examinations
for librarians. The same with the six (6) new librarians who
passed the recent board examination (November 2011). This is to
uplift the morale of librarians in our Region, as we played a
significant role in the field of education and information literacy.

We have invited Mrs. Mila Ramos, member of the Board for
Librarians to grace and witness the occasion, the first ever
recognition given to distinguished librarian of Bicol.

We look forward to your active participation to this event.

Thank you.


Edna M. San Buenaventura
