Ocular Visit at Queen Margarette Hotel

Last July 1, 2008, some members of the Organizing Committee made an initial ocular visit to Queen Margarette Hotel to finalize the venue reservation for the 2008 PLAI-STRLC Regional Conference. After the visit, we were treated to a sumptuous Chinese cuisine served at the Hotel*.Another ocular visit was conducted last 12 August 2008 being the first part of the agenda of the 7th regular monthly meeting of the 2008 PLAI-STRLC Officers. Majority of the Officers were able to join the Ocular inspection.

Below are some of the snapshots of the said visits.

Activities @ 29th MIBF

UPDATED as of 15 August 2008
UPDATED as of 07 August 2008
UPDATED as of 04 August 2008

We reckoned that a separate compiled posting of scheduled activities during 29th Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) as they are announce by various organizer/association is necessary for the general information of our colleagues as early as now so that they could make the necessary reservation/travel request, etc. It will also serve as a posting supplement to the Librarian Events for September 2008 we have been meticulously compiling.

We will collate all available information that come to our attention and in the absence of official MIBF activity schedule (hopefully will be distributed before the official opening), the listed activities here might be worth our time attending for our professional & personal growth.
