Filipina Librarian Named
2007 IFLA/OCLC Fellow

Congratulations to Alicia Esguerra of Bulacan State University, Malolos, Bulacan!

For the first time since the IFLA/OCLC Early Career Development Fellowship Program began in 2001, a librarian from the Philippines has been selected as one of five fellows to undergo a five-week training program in the United States and the Netherlands.

The press release states that "the Fellows will participate in a five-week program of lectures, seminars and mentoring... [and] visit selected North American and European libraries, library organizations, and cultural heritage institutions."

The program guidelines and application form for 2008 will be made available by September 2006. Perhaps more Filipino librarians will be encouraged to apply for fellowships at OCLC—and other institutions, too!—with good news like this.
