ARKI Students are all smiles with the donated library materials.

The SCG (Siam Ceramics Group) together with the Mariwasa Siam   Ceramics, Inc., one of the pioneers in ceramic industry providing eco-friendly quality designed ceramic tiles in the Philippines launched its pioneering project, called the “The SCG Gallery of Sustainable Environment” at the College of Architecture Library on November 28, 2013 in celebration of its 100th year. The exhibit runs through November 28, 2013 to November 28, 2015.

The gallery displays 50 new titles of architecture books,  Filipiniana periodicals on architecture, interior design,  fine arts and brochures/catalogs of ceramic tiles with tile calculators that benefit the students in helping and guiding them in their studies.

These donated library materials by Mariwasa augments the library collection for its users.  An e-bulletin board for its collection supports the catalogs for easy access. The students, faculty, professionals and design enthusiasts can stay up-to-date on the latest ceramic tiles with the click of a button! The Mariwasa Siam Ceramics will update annually the book collections display as well as the brochures and catalogs. A two-year subscription of three Filipiniana magazines will also be shouldered by the company.

The tapping of resources from architectural firms, architects, building material companies is a project of the College of Architecture Library on a long term to augment the reference materials of architecture students.

forever youngThe University Library is honored to receive the biographical book about Major Maximo Purisima Young entitled, “Forever young : a soldier’s tale : a walk through the life of Maximo Purisima Young.” Atty. Walter T. Young, the author and executive editor, dedicates this book to his father Major Maximo Purisima Young on the occasion of his 90th birthday. This coffee-table book, written and crafted as a genuine labor of love, was published by Norma Tobias Young Foundation a couple of weeks before his Dad’s 91st birthday celebration in 2012. Atty. Walter T. Young is a UP alumnus (AB Econ 1974 and LLB 1980) and part of Young Revilla Gambol & Magat Law Firm.

Major Maximo Purisima Young (Ret) is a bemedalled soldier who earned 22 medals, notable of which are the Silver Star Medal during the Second World War and the Gold Cross Medal during the Korean War, in his 27 years of military service. The unusual circumstances of his childhood and the harsh events of the Second World War deprived him the opportunity to earn a secondary school diploma, as he reached 2nd year high school only. Despite this inadequacy, in 1947, he was awarded a scholarship to an armored force training at the Fort Knox in Kentucky, U.S.A., following his topping a competitive test where he bested other examinees who where college graduates. Efforts to obtain his well-deserved promotion from then established military hierarchy who plausibly perceived that his inadequate formal schooling would be a handicap. Amidst those trying times, with he help of  his late wife, Norma Tobias Young, he was able to send all his children to college. This book truly highlights the value of education which Maximo and the late Norma nurtured as their legacy to their children. Source: Atty. Walter Young’s donation letter to the University Library.

Atty. Walter T. Young turnover the book to Prof. Rodolfo Y. Tarlit.

Daddy Max’s biography, which has evolved as the story of our family, aims to give my siblings and their descendants, a panoramic view into our roots. It also assures us that an important life to all of us, would be remembered. For without knowing our roots; we will have not much buttress and bearings. -Walter T. Young
