How will people find out what's happening at the library or what librarians are doing if we don't tell them about it? The following are published by libraries or library associations in the Philippines:

  • The Philippine Association of Academic and Research Librarians has an unnamed publication whose first issue goes back to 1999.
  • The De La Salle University Library has its Newsette, which is available in pdf format from September 2001 onward.
  • Aklatang Emilio Aguinaldo of De La Salle University-DasmariƱas publishes The Bookshelf. Some articles in its latest issue are available online, but all other issues since June 2004 are available as pdf files.
  • The University of the Philippines Library Science Alumni Association set up a blog, UPLSAA Online, as the first draft of its newsletter. (Disclosure: I am the editor of the online and offline versions of the newsletter.)
  • The Philippine Normal University Library and Information Science Alumni Association also blogs at PNU-LIS Updates.
  • Xavier School has its XS GS LRC Blog, which has a lot of photos.
  • And then there's the latest: the International Rice Research Institute Library's What's New at the IRRI Library, which is devoted to current awareness.
What's going on? Could it be that a trend is starting? Blogs are free and easier to update than regular websites. Keep your fingers crossed.
