raul roco's special library

back in October of 2014 where i returned as an active public librarian, after i my mother's death. i refocus more (as in more) in library programs, with naga city shelf project which i will post later. since january, during weekends, i went to senator roco's special collection of books at lavista. 

the opportunity is amazing for i was able to see the books that made the late senator intellectually brilliant. books that he love to read, and the favorite authors he liked etc.. interesting to note, these collections spoke of a lot of him. and yes,as of this time, i am here. 

again, with books and stuff here, and so with my staff, jelo, alex and johnpaul, at quezon city.

I’m back, naga library readers!

since november of 2013, i am always preoccupied with personal concerns. even before the last article i posted, i am hampered with so much of family matters that any profession like me, would decide to put more weight to resolve the problems than any other concerns. but. i did not regret it even i was out and drain for the years while all of my fellow librarians were so active in thier own turf.

and yes. i am coming, and this blog (hoping again)  to continue to inspire librarians in the public sectors.

thanks to all my frienda. fellow librarians who inspire me, always at the back and never lost thier trust over my potentials.

Library: a place for every Bicol piece

Keeping the naga library proactive while I have a personal reasons to attend to, last September 16 is the 3rd Raul S. Roco Library Lecture series and it bannered by the theme - library: a place for every Bicol piece. the event was a continuing advocacy of the RSR Library in promoting the Bicol Books. 

The result was a simple manual that contains the DDC numbers for Bicol terms culled from the National Library Cataloging Services. this manual will help Bicol librarians in determining the appropriate DDC numbers for Bicol subjects ( towns, terms etc). 
AGAIN, AGAIN, THANKS TO THE LIBRARIANS WHO ATTENDED. There are 48 librarians, 13 students in library science together with the Director of National Library Antonio Santos and speaker historian - Dr. Danny Gerona and the group of writers who have were kind to accomodate my invitation to launched their books - Prof Marvin Sambajon's  In light of reason, Lou Nierva's  Osipon, Zaldy Manrique's  The young Bienvenido Santos  and Randy Bacares'  Dr. Jaime Hernandez, a biographical sketch.  AGAIN, see you in the 4th Raul Roco Lecture!
