October Happenings

We are posting as early as now other tentatively set events for October so as to guide us and possibly calendar them ahead of time as part of our first semester-ender activities and allot / re-allocate / request budget for our attendance. Details are still preliminary and changes are expected.

First, an email notice for a PTLS-Forum:

August 17, 2007

Dear Colleague:

Please be informed that the PATLS will hold a forum, tentatively set on October 31, 2007, at a venue that will be announced later. We shall invite the writers of the completed modules for the LIS curriculum to present their modules and suggest ways of making these interesting for our students.

We shall also report to the PATLS members the results of a discussion between the members of the Board and some stakeholders on how to improve the MLIS curriculum. We, likewise, hope to create a committee that will propose policies and standards for graduate programs in LIS.

We shall inform you of the details after our September 12 Board meeting.

Thank you very much on behalf of the PATLS Board,

(Sgd.) Vyva Victoria M. Aguirre
Chair, PATLS Conference Committee

From Ma’am Vyva Aguirre, PATLS Vice-President email:

The PATLS will hold a forum to present selected teaching modules for LIS. We shall be inviting some of the module writers to present significant portions of the modules and suggest ways by which these can be made more interesting to LIS students.

In the same venue, we shall form a committee that will look into the curriculum of MLIS with a view of standardizing this. Your participation will be a great help towards a better MLIS education.

The forum will be held on November 10, 2007, from 9:00-12:00 am at the PNU Library conference room. We shall be charging a token fee (to be announced later) for the venue and snacks.

Secondly, PLAI-STRLC will hold its seminar and 4th General Assembly, tentatively set this coming October 8-9 2007 in Pansol, Calamba, Laguna. The seminar is tentatively titled “Research Capabilities of Information Specialists : A New Outlook of the trade”. (Thanks T. Rose for sharing the info)
