PLAI-EVRLC Blog

December 15, 2008

Ooops … forgot to publish this post earlier as drafted. Better late than never! Thank you vhic for your comment posted last December 10, 2008 about the existence of PLAI-EVRLC blog. You see as of December 7, 2008 we have prepared the update of Regional Council Blogs but due to confluence of events this merry season of December, peer reviewing of draft articles (an internal blogsite rule we adopted as form of quality control) takes a back seat due to task of equal importance at our own individual institutions. Below is the abridged version of that draft article deleting the other paragraphs that requires colleague’s peer review before publication.

December 7, 2008

Received an email today informing me among others that PLAI : Eastern Visayas Region Librarians Council has a blog presence since January 2008. In view of this information, we are revising our post of of November 25, 2008 regarding PLAI Regional Council Blogs and PLAI-EVRLC is the 5th Regional Council with online presence and PLAI-ZPRLC as the 6th using the date of the first posted article as point of reference of online/blog presence.

The online presence of Regional Councils (RC) provide a real-time dissimination of their activities within and outside the region. Colleagues from other RC could benchmark their planned activities, duplicate/replicate/re-echo events based on what been done (or not being done) in other council. The accrued benefits of this horizontal approach (insted of top-to-botttom) to effecting changes in our beloved association is now bearing fruits. More & more younger & IT literate colleagues are connected at the grassroot level and in due time, its impact will be felt at the national level of our beloved PLAI.

Update: PLAI Regional Council Blogs

Last January 25, 2007, we noted the existence of PLAI Regional Council Blogs and today we would like to add to that list. The PLAI-Bicol Region Librarian Council blog was operational last September 28, 2007 during their Seminar Workshop on “Developing Competencies of Librarians / Information Specialists for Quality Service”. We are glad to learned that new posts are available after a hiatus of more than one year.

The 5th Regional Council with blog presence is PLAI-Zamboanga Peninsula (Zamboanga Peninsula Region Librarian Council) which we learned of their existence thru its Council President Benhur Asid during the PLAI National Congress in Davao City. Just like PLAI-STRLC blogs, PLAI-ZamPen has blogspot and wordpress presence with October 23, 2008 as the earliest posting date of entries.

We hope the other eleven (11) Regional Council of PLAI will have their online presence soon.
