MIBF

The UA&P Faculty Library Committee trooped to the 30th Manila International Book Fair last September 16 to 19 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City to choose from among rare and interesting resources to add to the library’s every-expanding collection.

UA&P Faculty and Staff members also had a hand in the selection of books. Dr. Alfonso Hiquiana, Dr. Theta Ponce, Prof. Sofia David, Dr. Corazon Toralba, Ms. Asuncion Magsino, Ms. Nilda and Salazar, Mr. Romeo Venes, Ms. Boots Ruelos, and Ms. Josette Reyes were among the library’s advisers for the choosing of books.

All books selected during the book fair were simultaneously delivered to the Library. Materials were checked against the collection for duplicates and faculty members were notified through e-mail for the final evaluation.

About 200 book dealers and publishers participated in the annual book fair to exhibit their best and most recent publications.

In the publishing industry, book fair are held year round in various locations, similar to trade shows. The event gives publishers to interact with their customers, meet new authors and gauge their performance against competing press houses.
