The significant undertaking was initiated by the library staff for the students to be informed of the guidelines and policies in using various library resources such as print and non-print materials, e-books, e-journals and other online services, and proper use of the state-of-the-art facilities. Along with this, these new students were given warm welcome and they experienced virtual and actual tour in the different sections of the college library. On the other hand, they had acquainted with the library staff through a presentation. This is to let them identify library staff to assist them in their information needs. Before the students exit from the library, they were given flyers on Library Guidelines to guide them with the library guidelines and policies.
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.
