EnggLib holds its 5th Kapihan sa Aklatan

Kapihan sa Aklatan is an annual event where new COE faculty members are given orientation on the services, resources, and facilities of the library.  To equip them with the basics on the use and access of some of Engglib’s online resources, a hands-on training was also facilitated by the subscription providers.

Now on its fifth year, the said forum and orientation is part of the library’s information literacy program. It is a venue for the new faculty to learn how the library can be of great help in their research and teaching.  This year’s Kapihan was held last August 13, 2012 at the Maynilad Room, Third Floor of Melchor Hall.

One of the highlights of the program was the Kapihan part wherein EnggLibrarians headed by Ms. Sharon Maria S. Esposo-Betan, were given an opportunity to meet the new faculty and discuss with them what the library has to offer.  In return, the new faculty will be enlightened with their privileges and queries on the library’s services, resources and facilities.

The awarding ceremonies of the winners of EnggLib’s Scavenger Hunt for Freshies 2012 and Elsevier Philippines Online Challenge for Scopus and Science Direct 2012 were also conducted in the said event.

As EnggLib’s little way of formally welcoming the new faculty as library partners, participants were served with free cocktails and freebies and exciting prizes were also given.  Raffle prizes were made possible through the generous support of LibTech, Springer Philippines and MegaTEXTs.

Participants included the new engineering faculty from the various departments along with some senior faculty, Library Faculty Committee Chair Dr. Florencio C. Ballesteros Jr. and representatives, and student winners of said contests.  Presenters were the sales and marketing executives of Springer Philippines, LibTech Source Philippines and MegaTEXTs.
