Daily Tribune in the metro section and penned by Pat C. Santos bannered "Lim advises children to stay away from drugs by reading books".
In his desire to encourage children to appreciate reading, Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim will open tomorrow, Feb. 19, the city-owned library in Pandacan and another in Bacood, Sta. Mesa on Feb. 25.
The libraries are stocked with books that were donated by individuals and organizations.
Lim said he expects to open more libraries in the other districts of the city.
“We want to provide children with another form of entertainment while educating them through reading instead of wasting their time in worthless ventures like begging, or worse, even drugs,” the mayor told the department heads during the regular Monday DEHECHO meeting.
The mayor stressed the importance of reading and literacy, especially among the elementary and high school students, to increase their chances of improving their lives when they grow older.
He directed the Office of City Librarian chief, Maria Gracia Gargantiel, to conceptualize a program to encourage children to read and go to the libraries this summer for their full enjoyment and optimum use of their vacation.
He met recently with officials of M/V Doulos led by Felipe Bouchat, the only floating library in the world which is committed to bring new books and its crew to outreach missions in the poorest communities of Tondo, particularly Parola and the Baseco Compound at Port Area.
Doulos seeks to address the growing need to enhance the educational system so that students can cope with modern technology while enriching their reading comprehension skills.
Lim said children who can read well are able to grow up as skilled professionals and responsible citizens in the future.

Last January 30, 2009, the Librarians Association of Batangas (LAB) had a study/educational tour entitled “LABarkadahan” in pre-selected libraries and museums in Metro Manila namely, Ateneo De Manila University-Rizal Library; Lopez Libraries and Museum; and the Filipinas Heritage Library (FHL).
The activity aimed to expose librarians and library personnel
It was participated by librarians and staff from the different libraries in Batangas : (2) from University of Batangas (UB); (2) from Casa Del Bambino; (3) from Golden Gate Colleges; (2) from Batangas Provincial Library; (1) from Regional Trial Court of Batangas; (2) from Lipa City Colleges; (1) from FAITH; and (2) from De La Salle Lipa. Many commented that they learned and discovered many things during the tour. (Lilian C. Rabino)
*LAB is the 4th Provincial Chapter (PC) organized and affiliated with PLAI-STRLC.

From the JURN blog:
What’s not in the mix? The closed “paid-for” ejournals (on Muse, Sage, Blackwell, Intellect, etc) are not indexed. The “buffet style” article-banks, such as findarticles.com and similar, are not indexed. Flash-heavy websites have a hard time being indexed by Google even if they’re in the mix. Some journals are not yet indexed by Google, and some URLs “hide” the actual articles in various ways (e.g. hard image scans of journal pages). Journals in languages other than English are not heavily indexed, and JURN aims to cover only English-language journals. Full-text conference proceedings are not indexed, but may be added at some future date. About six sites were removed during my scrutiny of test searches, since they were of poor quality (dubious art sales sites, fashion mags, etc).
JURN is not accepting submissions, but will track and add new URLs from Intute, DOAJ, and other trusted sources.

Almost on a weekly basis before the said conference, officers alternately followed up via a long distance phone call & check of the DepEd website for the endorsement to no avail. We just consoled ourselves before the start of the conference that we have the CHED and CSC endorsement anyway.
Our lesson learned from that application are as follows:
1) sending the application for endorsement of the conference via "snail mail" works.
As agreed, I went to CHED Head Office at Ortigas only to be told by the lady security guard that the office I need to visit for the endorsement transferred to the new CHED building at UP Diliman yesterday. Before I went to CHED, I was earlier at UP-SLIS and nobody informed me that CHED had a new office building within the campus. I decided to follow up first at DepEd before returning to UP Diliman at the new CHED building.
3) file (or mail) the request for endorsement at least 3-4 months before the activity.
This will allow reasonable time for the concern government agencies to act on the application and enough time for the association to include in the invitation letters the endorsement(s).
