The Library invited faculty members and assessors to visit the recent 31st Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) held last September 15-19, 2010 at SMX Convention Center at The Mall of Asia, Pasay City.

The invited faculty members and assessors were encouraged to be involved in activities to develop the library’s collection, which in turn can support their teaching and research.

Library materials are developed upon what students need to learn, adapt, and expand, known through the feedback from these advisors.

Among the faculty members who choose the best books for the least price were: Dr. George Manzano and Dr. Cid Terosa for the School of Economics, Dr. Yvette Camacho, CAS Dean, Ms. Ma. Asuncion Magsino for the Dept. of Philosophy, Ms. Cecilia Resurreccion, Director for Student Affairs, Mr. Victor Primo, for the Dept. of English, and Mr. Joel Pira from the Dept. of Information Technology.

The event also feature forums on various topics hosted by PLAI, PAARL and UPLSAA. These topics include Read, Connect and Innovate, Information Ethics and Copyright Lawyering of Information Professionals, E-books and the New Dynamics of Publishing and Knowledge Management Strategies that Create Value.
