The Research Planning/Scholarship Center, the Graduate School office, the Graduate School seminar room, the Graduate School library and the Instructional Media Center (IMC) were relocated to give way to the new Library office, the Multi-Purpose Room and the Internet Access Room. The IMC was converted to a Faculty Lounge equipped with computer units for the use of the faculty members. Just recently (2006), the Graduate School Library was relocated to this area.
A computer program, Library.Solution, was purchased in the second semester of SY 1999-2000 and was installed July 2002. This includes cataloging, circulation and the OPAC. This has been updated last September 2005 and will be updated this October 2006.
The library, as the very center of academic life takes pride in the institution’s achievements such as: the granting of University status in 1984, one of CHED’s Centers of Excellence for Teacher Education, one of the Centers of Development for Excellence in the field of Business and Management Education and the granting of the Deregulated Status to mention a few.
As of this writing (2006), the library has 14 professional librarians, two support staff and 60 student assistants.
With the administration’s all - out support, the Library reiterates its commitment to be truly responsive to the needs of the members of the academic community and to assist the University in attaining its avowed goal- Quality Christian Community- Oriented Education.
