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

Are There Clear or Specific Standards on Reference Collections?

Samuel Swett Green stated that reference librarians should have four goals: teaching patrons about the library’s functions and resources, as well as how to utilize them; answering patrons’ questions; helping patrons select good reading material; and promoting the library to the greater community. In other words, the library has a duty to the community it serves and must respond to the needs of its patrons. To Green, people ought to feel welcome in their local libraries and librarians should facilitate this by being actively engaged with patrons and personalizing their service for each individual (Wikipedia). Based from these ideas of Green, it may be one of the reasons why Reference Services is one of the core subjects in Library and Information Science.


Green's advocacy on reference service is of little impact in the Philippines. I say this for the following reasons:

1. Reference Library/Section in the library is not given much attention in terms of services, collection, etc.

2. Only few libraries had reference section according to the idea of Samuel Green.

3. CHED Standards, PAASCU Standards, and other standards on reference collection are silent in terms of collection quantity unlike the Filipiniana, periodicals and professional book collection.


In my quest on this aspect, only the Policies and Programs for School Library Development (DECS Order No. 6 S 1998) has specific standard on the quantity of reference books.


I appeal to the different accrediting agencies (PAASCU, PACU-COA, etc.), government accrediting agencies (CHED, DepEd, Board for Librarians) and professional associations (PAARL, ALAP, etc.) to consider standards on reference collection as part of library standards.
