Dear Colleagues and Friends:

Greetings from PAARL!

The Philippine Association of Academic/Research Librarians Inc. (PAARL) in cooperation with the Association of Booksellers for the Academe and the Profession (ABAP) cordially invites you to a Lecture-Forum on the topic “Valuing Library Services” to be held in celebration of the 13th Philippine Academic Book Fair on June 24, 2009 (Wednesday) from 1:00-5:00PM at Megatrade Hall 1, SM Megamall, EDSA, Madaluyong City.

The topic will attempt to meet the following objectives:

1. to assist the librarians in the assessment of the monetary value of their library services;
2. for libraries to have a leverage for increased priority in the hierarchy of importance of services and in allocation of budgets; and
3. to create one of the benchmarks in library services.

It is suggested that participants bring statistical data on the usage of library services together with the summary of expenses (or financial statement) for a brief workshop.

Our resource speaker, Mr. Nehemias A. Pasamba was one of the paper presenters in the recently concluded 14th CONSAL held in Hanoi, Vietnam and currently works as the Acquisition and Educational Media Librarian of Mission College in Thailand.

There is a registration fee of P300 for members and P350 for non-members. The seating capacity at the venue is limited to only ninety (90), so only reservations made in advance will be guaranteed seats during the forum. An accreditation of five (5) CPE Units has been applied.

For reservation details and other concerns, please contact the undersigned or any member of the Board by phone or email. Thank you and it’s a privilege to be of service to you.

Sincerely yours,

Christopher C. Paras
VP/Chair, Conference Committee
