The University Libraries in its mission to support the Louisian Academic Community by providing a sustained, well-balanced collection, recently conducted a Three-day Book Fair at the College Library on May 22-24, 2013. Fifteen (15) book publishers/vendors paraded their most recent collections, from among which, book- loving faculty members and students from SEAS, SBAA, SEAFA, SCIS, CTVED, CHAS, Elementary and High Schools evaluated and recommended materials that are useful and appropriate for their respective departments. An estimated PhP3.5 million worth of books were selected from the book festival. Interested outsiders also joined the event.
The fair was conducted simultaneously with the Three-day Training on Basic Processing of Library Materials by the Cagayan and Kalinga Apayao Librarians Association (CaAKAp) led by the dynamic USL Director of Libraries and CaAKAp President, Mr. Michael A. Pinto, in cooperation with the USL’s University Libraries and Student Organization of Library and Information Science (SOLIS). Dr. Juliet D. Villanueva, Mrs. Evangeline Cabello, Mrs. Arlyn S. Cristobal, Mr. Bilyson Alejo and Mrs. Venus Ibarra-Guyos were among the roster of competent speakers.
