Published Articles in E-Prints in Library and Information

Here are some of my articles published in E-Prints in Library & Information Science:

Managing Public School Libraries in a Changing Environment . In Proceedings 2007 Division Summer Institute for Secondary Teachers in English & Teacher Librarians, Cavite (Philippines), 2007

This paper presents some key management issues concerning public school libraries in the country. Also, discusses standards such as the IFLA/UNESCO School Library Manifesto on the Role of the School Library in Teaching and Learning for All as well as the Philippine School Library Standards including issues that deal with innovation and the new information landscape.

Library & Information Literacy Initiative : the SSC-R de Cavite Experience. In Proceedings Regional Conference on Promoting Information Literacy for Lifelong Learning, Lipa City, Batangas (Philippines), 2006

The paper presents the result of the study conducted on the level of library and information literacy competency of engineering students of SSC-R de Cavite as basis for the development of an intervention programs. The study attempted to look into the following: 1) the level of library and information literacy competency of engineering students; and, the respondent’s strengths and weaknesses in terms of the identified competencies.

The researcher used the descriptive-normative method, using the CSPU (California State Polytechnic University) and the CREPQU (Conference of Rectors and Principals of Quebec Universities) Information Competency Assessment instruments. The reliability index suggests that there is a high degree of internal consistency among the items as well as there is a marked reliability of the instrument; hence, the instrument was valid. It was then, administered to 341 engineering students enrolled in a 4- and 5-year program with 87.38% (298) response rate.

Results revealed that the respondents have limited knowledge and have not acquired the desired library and information literacy competencies in determining the extent of information needed; accessing the needed information effectively and efficiently; evaluating information and its sources critically; and using information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose; and understand the economic, legal, and social issues surrounding the use of information.
