The Philippine Librarians Association, Inc. (PLAI), in cooperation with PLAI-National Capital Region Librarians Council, will be conducting a forum with the theme Collaborative Learning Spaces in Libraries: Design Considerations by Ms. Ana Maria B. Fresnido, the Director of the De La Salle University Library. This event will be held at SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City on September 13, 2013 from 8:00 to 11:00 AM on the occasion of the 34th Manila International Book Fair.
The talk aims to
- make librarians understand the importance of having collaborative learning spaces in the library to cater to the increasing demand for learning opportunities by the library users;
- increase awareness of librarians on how to manage this service of the library; and
- plan for the possibility of adopting this practice to improve the library services based on the needs and demands of each institution.
In line with this, there will be a forum fee of P300.00 for librarians and library staff and P200.00 for students to cover certificate of participation, light snacks and other incidental expenses.
