Here for you, come rain or shine 

Ms. Sharon Maria S. Esposo-Betan, Head Librarian of the UP College of Engineering Library, was awarded the Irmgard Lankenau Poster Award for winning the Best Poster during the 38th Annual IATUL Conference. Her poster“Advocacy Towards User Responsibility and Lifelong Learning”, presents the UP College of Engineering Library’s advocacy to promote shared responsibility among users in the care, upkeep, and maintenance of library resources and facilities through the “I Need. I Value. I Love My Library” campaign. It describes the eight-year experience and transformation of this library innovation – from a simple library awareness campaign to helping rebuild Philippine libraries stricken by natural disasters.

The International Association of University Libraries (IATUL) is a prestigious international library association that aims to provide a framework of support for library decision makers by conducting a series of workshops for leadership training and forums for the exchange of ideas relevant to librarianship. This year, the Conference was hosted by the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano University Library last June 18-22, 2017 in Bolzano, Italy.
