A school library is a place for learning. Moreover, librarians are encouraged to inspire clients with their enthusiasm. As part of the school’s strong desire to become a learning hub for creativity and innovation, Information Specialists (librarians) of MDSF library Sir Mamerto Tubis, Jr., Sir Ardee Taruc, Ma’am Grace Bernaldez and Ma’am Maira Mirasol attended a whole day forum about “3T’s (Transitions, Trends, and Techniques) in Promoting the Library: Keeping Up with the Innovation and Technology in a Changing Library Environment” held on August 16, 2017 at St. Paul University AVR-Quezon City with the collaboration of Quezon City Library Consortium and Philippine Librarians Association, Inc.
The forum resource speaker Ms. Rhea Rowena U. Apolinario, President, PLAI-NCRLC enlightened the audience about how librarians can meet the expectations of every client/learner using different modern approaches and setting a learning environment that is age-appropriate and interest-based. It is timely because nowadays there is a high level of diversity among learners.
According to Sir Mamerto Tubis, HS librarian, the forum is very helpful, because it encouraged the team to promote library utilization and providing services with the integration of technology.
It is this school year that MDSF launched different online platforms for school research: EBSCOhost, an Australian based online collection of journals and studies and the Starbooks by Department of Science and Technology.
