5th Marina G. Dayrit Lecture Series 2017

Dear Colleagues and Friends:

The Philippine Association of Academic/Research Librarians, Inc. (PAARL) will be holding its 5th Marina G. Dayrit Lecture Series 2017 with the theme “Recognizing Best Researches: A Colloquium on Philippine Libraries and Librarianship” on 04 December 2017, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, at the U.P. Diliman Main Library Lobby, Gonzalez Hall, U.P. Diliman, Quezon City.

The lecture series, named in honor of our founding president Ms. Marina G. Dayrit, aims to provide a fertile learning environment for new ideas and enlightened discussions among library and information professionals in the country.

This year’s concluding lecture is a colloquium recognizing the best research papers submitted to PAARL in 2017. These research articles will also be featured in the 2017 issue of the PAARL Research Journal along with other accepted papers for publication. Authors of said best research papers shall present the results of their works during this colloquium.  

We therefore invite all interested librarians and/or information professionals to attend this forum and learn from the best researchers as they share their research experience and disseminate the results of their scholarly work. By highlighting the role of librarians as researchers in the knowledge society, we hope to further the library and information science profession in the country by cultivating the culture of research among Filipino librarians and/or information professionals.

As PAARL’s way of expressing gratitude to its members for their unwavering support to the Association’s programs and activities, attendance to this forum is provided for FREE to institutional and individual (regular and associate) members who have paid their membership dues for the past three years (2014-2016). However, due to limited seats in the venue, we will require advanced registration. To be assured of a seat, please register online at http://tinyurl.com/PAARL2017-MGDLS5.
