Research Made Easy @ Your Library – Staff Edition was held at the General Reference Section, Main Library, UP Diliman last April 11, 2012.  It was a hands-on training on the use of the electronic resources for all library staff who wanted to know more about UP’s online subscription and for those who have not yet attended any workshop on this.

Aside from the reference librarians from the General Reference Section, Sales Representatives from local provider or vendor were invited to speak and demo their products. Presenters on the morning session were Grace Garcia for UP Library website; Marian Ramos for Understanding Databases; Masaki Morisawa for Academic OneFile and Gale Virtual Reference Library; Carlos Eclevia, Jr. for ScienceDirect and Scopus and Josef Halos for EBSCOHost Product Search. The afternoon session presenters were Annelyn Lim for JSTOR and Emerald eManagement Journals; Carlos Eclevia, Jr.  for SpringerLink and ProQuest Central; Rizalyn Janio for UP Diliman Journals; Vincent Abrigo for WorldBank eLibrary and OpenData and Chito Angeles for Philippine eLib.

A total of 69 staff participated in this workshop including those from UPLB Main Library.  Before the awarding of certificate, the participants answered an online quiz (consisted of 34 multiple choice questions) and the 3 participants with the highest score were awarded with cash gifts.

Thanks to Ms. Connie Saul, UPLB University Librarian, for bringing extra iPad2 and Acer Iconia Android Tab.
