12-12-12 Not The End But A Beginning

DSC_0503In line of a phenomenal day 12-12-12, which some would consider  as the "End of the World", the University Libraries took the opportunity to start a new beginning as it introduces the National Geographic Magazine Online last December 12, 2012 at the 2nd Floor, College Library. The event started with a simple program with Dr. Delailah Valencia, the VP PDQAA giving the opening remarks after which, Mr. Michael Pinto, the Director of Libraries had a simple discussion how the said online resource was able to be included in the library’s resources. A video presentation was also viewed by those present in the event featuring the National Geographic Magazine’s history and its contents and a presentation of other online resources linked in the University Library’s website. Also present in the event were the different Deans and Vice Presidents of the University. The National Geographic Magazine Online includes issues from its first publication in 1888 until present, except for the last two months. The acquisition of such was done through the CICM Consortium which includes the four CICM schools in Luzon. In fact, only the members of the consortium have this database on the country, making it a momentous event in the history of CICM schools in the Philippines.
