UPLSAA Newsletter

The UP Library Science Alumni Association (UPLSAA) has released its May-Nov 2007 issue of the UPLSAA Newsletter. Click here for the e-copy.

PLAI-STRLC is honored to be mentioned in the article entitled “Open Access Resources @ the SLIS Lecture Series” because they were able to access Ms. Lawton’s presentation online. Its almost the same lecture given during the IRRI Seminar on Open Access.

Contributions to UPLSAA Newsletter

The newly elected officers of the UP Library Science Alumni Association (UPLSAA) would be releasing an online version of the UPLSAA Newsletter this November. In connection with this, they are inviting all alumni of the School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS) formerly known as the Institute of Library and Information Science (ILIS) and originally called Institute of Library Science (ILS) , to contribute any personal or professional article to be included in the issue they are preparing. Deadline for submission of articles is on November 18, 2007. Please see complete transcript of the information disseminated via email below.
Subject: [uplsaa07-08] Alumni Updates

Hello all,

Greetings fellow Pinoy Librarians!

We will be releasing UPLSAA newsletter (online version) this month. This year, the board decided to release just the online version of the newsletter for environmental and financial reasons. Doing so will allow us to save on publishing and mailing costs, and it will be easier on the trees. It will also allow us to release the newsletter more often (should the need arise), plus we’ll have a wider reach if we just published online.

Rest assured that it will still be the same newsletter (but I’d like to think it’s even better) because now, we are not hampered by page and postage limitations. We believe that this change is for the better both economically and environmentally.

Anyway, if you would like to have your personal and/or professional updates included in our upcoming issue (new graduates, new job, promotion, change of civil status, delivered a paper, published a scholarly article, received a grant/scholarship) please email us right away with the pertinent information. Please also include your full name, degree and year of graduation from the Institute so we can update our directory (sorry, us old-timers still refer to SLIS as the institute.

You may email your updates to us:
Eimee Lagrama (Pres) – emang796@yahoo. com
Troy Lacsamana (PRO) – troybdude@yahoo. com

Please send it on or before Sunday, 18 Nov. 2007. And feel free to forward this to other alumni.

We hope to hear from you.

Cheers,

Eimee Lagrama
President, UPLSAA 2007-08

P.S.

We are having a training session for the Marikina Youth Center Library Volunteers this Saturday at the Aklatang Pambata, Paltok , QC . We’ll begin at 9am until (about) 4pm. If you’d like to join us, let us know. See you this Saturday!


Promoting Research and Scholarship through Open Access and e-Publishing

The UP School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS) and the UP Library Science Alumni Association (UPLSAA) will be having its third lecture, as part of the SLIS 2007 lecture series, entitled “Promoting Research and Scholarship through Open Access and e-Publishing” on August 15, 2007, 10:oo am at the Computer Laboratory, SLIS, 3/F Gonzales Hall, University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City.

The speaker will be Ms. Fides Datu-Lawton (BLS 1971) who is currently the Director of the Library Resources Unit of the University of Technology, Sydney, Australia.

Below is an abstract taken from an email communication sent by Ms. Mila M. Ramos to PLAI-STRLC yahoogroups dated 27 July 2007 :

The lecturer will provide an introduction to Open Access (OA), the major OA initiatives worldwide and some key imperatives that underpin them. In addition, she will discuss its benefits to researchers, parent institutions and to the society in general by opening up research and scholarly outputs.

Drawing on her experience in developing their own publishing programs in the University of Technology, Sydney, the lecturer will demonstrate the ways in which OA and online publishing can facilitate access to research and scholarship. Also, she will discuss the impacts of implementing digital repositories and online programs on librarians, academic and research staff and editorial teams.

Key implementation issues and policies will also be highlighted to open discussion with delegates.
