RL – Registered Librarian

Last September 26, 2006 the PLAI-STRLC (Southern Tagalog Region Librarian Council) General Assembly unanimuosly approved the proposal of using RL after the name of licensed librarian (e.g. Rene Manlangit, RL) to “level-up” so to speak the professionalism of licensed librarian. The GA viewed this initiative as a form of “community of practice” within Region IV (composed of 11 provinces) and hopefully to be adopted by other librarians in other provinces. Further, it was agreed to be on voluntary basis initially as some are not yet sold to the idea of using the initials.

The use of initials after our name was forwarded earlier by librarians in the government sector experiencing some form of “discrimination” from other professionals within their respective institution with similar PRC supervised board exams (e.g. Law, Nutrition, Nurse, Engineer, etc.) that have existing practice of appending initials of their profession before or after their name.

The PLAI- STRLC officers brainstormed on this idea several times during the monthly meetings and adopted the position of why not use similar initials to further drum beat awareness of the profession and as form of marketing our hardwon recognition as one the profession that requires examination before anyone is allowed to practice in the country. It was further agreed that the proposal be brought to the attention of the GA for approval and widespread adoption. Initially it was LL (for licensed librarian) and someone opined it could stand for “loko-loko” until the officers settled for RL.

This particular STRLC approved proposal/initiative in Region IV will be then submited to the PLAI-National and PLAI-HOD (House of Delegates) for appropriate action. (RBManlangit)
