Update: PLAI Regional Council Blogs

Last January 25, 2007, we noted the existence of PLAI Regional Council Blogs and today we would like to add to that list. The PLAI-Bicol Region Librarian Council blog was operational last September 28, 2007 during their Seminar Workshop on "Developing Competencies of Librarians / Information Specialists for Quality Service". We are glad to learned that new posts are available after a hiatus of more than one year.

The 5th Regional Council with blog presence is PLAI-Zamboanga Peninsula (Zamboanga Peninsula Region Librarian Council) which we learned of their existence thru its Council President Benhur Asid during the PLAI National Congress in Davao City. Just like PLAI-STRLC blogs, PLAI-ZamPen has blogspot and wordpress presence with October 23, 2008 as the earliest posting date of entries.

We hope the other eleven (11) Regional Council of PLAI will have their online presence soon.

Elected HOD & NBOT Officers, 2009-2010

Presided by Mrs. Susima Gonzales as Interim HOD Chair and by virtue of the new PLAI Bylaws of 2007 submitted to SEC in May 2008, she convened the House Of Delegates (HOD) on November 21, 2008 at Grand Men Seng Hotel wherein 33 out of 48 members [3 per Regional Council (RC) x 16 RC] were present in a general meeting to elect the officers of the House and NBOT.

In a motion by Rene Manlangit before the election of HOD officers, the body duly recognized the presence of three past PLAI President in that close-door meeting, namely: Atty. Antonio Santos (also the 1st HOD Chair), Prudenciana Cruz and Tess Moran whom Ms. Gonzales invited earlier to the meeting but failed to introduced their presence/official business in that HOD meeting.

The body then elected the 2 officers of the HOD with a lightning speed. Mr. Dante Perez as the elected HOD Chair clarified if he could already preside the election of NBOT officers to which the Interim HOD chair declined to yield power and proceeded with equal lightning speed the nomination for NBOT President.

Again Mr. Rene Manlangit raised an urgent motion to limit the nominee(s) of President & Vice President from among the elected Regional Council President & Vice President only thus preserving the harmonious and hierarchical order of Regional Council and prevent a 3rd member of HOD theoretically (e.g. Sec, Treas, Auditor or simply a member) being elected as NBOT President. The body approved the motion by a majority vote of 20 in favor and 10 against with 3 abstention.

The elected officers of the House of Delegates are:


Chair R. Dante O. Perez (IRLC)
Virgin Milagrosa University Foundation
San Carlos City, Pangasinan
Vice Chair

A Librarian's 2.0 Manifesto

I'm blog hopping until I was able to view Laura Cohen's site and reflected for a longest time I could remember. I think it is worth reposting this article for Filipino librarians to ponder. A mashup video prepared for this manifesto by other enthusiast is also available here.

A Librarian's 2.0 Manifesto

  • I will recognize that the universe of information culture is changing fast and that libraries need to respond positively to these changes to provide resources and services that users need and want.
  • I will educate myself about the information culture of my users and look for ways to incorporate what I learn into library services.
  • I will not be defensive about my library, but will look clearly at its situation and make an honest assessment about what can be accomplished.
  • I will become an active participant in moving my library forward.
  • I will recognize that libraries change slowly, and will work with my colleagues to expedite our responsiveness to change.
  • I will be courageous about proposing new services and new ways of providing services, even though some of my colleagues will be resistant.
  • I will enjoy the excitement and fun of positive change and will convey this to colleagues and users.
  • I will let go of previous practices if there is a better way to do things now, even if these practices once seemed so great.
  • I will take an experimental approach to change and be willing to make mistakes.
  • I will not wait until something is perfect before I release it, and I'll modify it based on user feedback.
  • I will not fear Google or related services, but rather will take advantage of these services to benefit users while also providing excellent library services that users need.
  • I will avoid requiring users to see things in librarians' terms but rather will shape services to reflect users' preferences and expectations.
  • I will be willing to go where users are, both online and in physical spaces, to practice my profession.
  • I will create open Web sites that allow users to join with librarians to contribute content in order to enhance their learning experience and provide assistance to their peers.
  • I will lobby for an open catalog that provides personalized, interactive features that users expect in online information environments.
  • I will encourage my library's administration to blog.
  • I will validate, through my actions, librarians' vital and relevant professional role in any type of information culture that evolves.
