Comment: A seminar-workshop worth attending by our colleagues in the Bicol region. It is sponsored by the PLAI-Bicol Region Librarians Council (BRLC). Incidentally, to all my fellow Bicolano colleagues working in different institutions in the NCR and nearby provinces, this could be the perfect opportunity for us to be back at Bicolandia and be re-acquainted/networked with our beloved colleagues there. Last week of September and 1st week of October is normally fiesta time in our own hometown or barrio, why not make this a double treat for us -- professional growth and vacation (re-charging) opportunity. See you there!
