2018 Marina G. Dayrit Lecture Series

Dear Colleagues:

The 2018 Marina G. Dayrit Lecture Series (MGDLS) is one of the longest running lecture series offered to professional librarians and Library and Information Science (LIS) students in the Philippines. This year, the MGDLS’ theme is “The Push to Research and Publish: Reskilling Librarians towards Becoming Practitioner-Authors”. For this series, the PAARL’s Board of Directors would like to present a cohesive and integrated talks and workshops broken down into singular, independent topics that would provide an excellent opportunity to librarians and LIS students to hone their research skills (whether taken individually or collectively). Thus, making them more effective in conducting research. It is also one way of encouraging the culture of research to Filipino librarians and LIS students.

Participants in the 2018 MGDLS are expected to: (a) gain basic knowledge of scholarly research, publication, and academic writing; (b) demonstrate knowledge of scholarly research by formulating relevant research problems, research questions, data analyses, conclusions, and recommendations; (c) recognize appropriate use of research methodologies, data gathering procedures, and data analysis techniques, (d) discover avenues and opportunities for publishing research manuscripts; and (e) determine the importance of ethics in research and publication.
