LABarkadahan : a Study Tour Activity

LABarkadahan – came from two terms coined together “LAB” and “Barkadahan”. The acronym LAB means Librarians Association of Batangas and while the word “Barkadahan” is a Tagalog term used to note a group of people going someplace, for fun or for educational purpose. It’s root word is “barkada” meaning group of friends.

Last January 30, 2009, the Librarians Association of Batangas (LAB) had a study/educational tour entitled “LABarkadahan” in pre-selected libraries and museums in Metro Manila namely, Ateneo De Manila University-Rizal Library; Lopez Libraries and Museum; and the Filipinas Heritage Library (FHL).

The activity aimed to expose librarians and library personnel to these state-of-the-art libraries in the country and to gain valuable knowledge on the latest trends in organizing their myriad resources and how these libraries are being efficiently managed.

It was participated by librarians and staff from the different libraries in Batangas : (2) from University of Batangas (UB); (2) from Casa Del Bambino; (3) from Golden Gate Colleges; (2) from Batangas Provincial Library; (1) from Regional Trial Court of Batangas; (2) from Lipa City Colleges; (1) from FAITH; and (2) from De La Salle Lipa. Many commented that they learned and discovered many things during the tour. (Lilian C. Rabino)

*LAB is the 4th Provincial Chapter (PC) organized and affiliated with PLAI-STRLC.
