Marian S. Ramos-Eclevia, Head Librarian of the University Library’s General Reference Section, recently presented her paper, Listen and Learn @Your Library: Development of Instructional Podcasts in the University of the Philippines Diliman University Library, at the Conference on GenNext Libraries 2012.

This international conference, held from 8-10 October 2012 at Universiti Brunei Darussalam, Brunei, is a gathering of librarians, archivists, information professionals, knowledge managers and related professionals from around the world to discuss issues that are affecting and will affect the library and information profession.  Participants’ sharing of knowledge, discussion of trends and issues, and informing each other of the developments and innovations  they are doing in their respective institutions is an ideal way of creating a database of knowledge and a synergy in the discipline that will advance and propel the library and information profession forward.

The conference theme, Emerging Technologies: New Direction for Libraries, perfectly reflects the dynamic between the advances in technologies and the library profession’s acceptance of the challenges these bring.  The conference was broken down into various sessions covering different aspects of the profession and Ms. Ramos-Eclevia chaired the session on New Trends in Reference Services.  >>> E.M.
