Mr. Chito Angeles gives lecture on the design and implementation of the UP Index to Philippine Newspapers Online

Mr. Chito Angeles, currently the Information Technology Officer II and Head of the Computer Services Section of the University Library, U.P. Diliman and Faculty member at the UP School of Library and Information Studies (formerly UP ILIS), was the guest speaker during the PLAI-NCR Lecture Forum Series on “Design and Implementation of a Web-based Online Database of the University of the Philippines (U.P.) Index to Philippine Newspapers (IPN)” held last April 23, 2007 at The National Library, T.M. Kalaw St., Ermita, Manila. Around 150 information professionals attended the said forum.

Started in 1981, the IPN is an index to nine locally published newspapers, namely: Manila Bulletin, Philippine Daily Express, Manila Chronicle, Philippine Daily Inquirer, Philippine Star, Malaya, Manila Times, and Times Journal. During the forum, Mr. Angeles talked about how the project was conceived, has progresses, up until it has become fully operational. He then gave an overall demonstration of the IPN Online’s main features.

According to him, indexers of the Filipiniana Serials of the UPD University Library indexed newspaper articles using 3×5 slips which are then arranged alphabetically by subject. He said that the initial automation of the newspaper index begun in 1991 and continued until 1995 wherein records were encoded in a CDS/ISIS database.

In 2001, Mr. Angeles attempted to develop a web-based version of the IPN using a proprietary database. Records were then converted from the CDS/ISIS to the new system. Finally, the development of the IPN Online was completed in 2006 as a requirement for the degree of Master of Library and Information Science. His thesis entitled “Design and Implementation of a Web-based Online Database of the U.P. Diliman Main Library’s Index to Philippine Newspapers (IPN)” is now the Best Theses for the Graduate Program 2007, awarded by the UP School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS).

The IPN Online is a complete automation software for newspaper management and article indexing. It includes the following major features: (1) Newspaper Management / Issue Management Article Indexing; (2) Online Public Access Catalog (search engine); (3) Online Request Interface (for reading/extended reading, photocopying, or printing); (4) Circulation Module (Lending of newspapers in print/microfilm); (5) Built-in Authority File (for subjects and author names); and, (6) Virtual Cart (book marking records).

Libraries here and abroad may now access the IPN Online for free at the UPD University Library Website. –MSRamos

The number of full text journals in digital format steadily increased. In 1999, the General Reference Section of the Main Library was servicing four CD-ROM databases, namely Academic Abstracts Full-Text, Social Science Source, Humanities Source and Readers Guide Abstracts. Said databases covered 402 serial titles. In 2005, the General Reference started servicing larger databases of full-text journals online to the autonomous campuses. First, there was Proquest Academic Research Libraries (ARL) with 1,500 full text articles and 2,500 abstracts; second, Info Host E-Psych covering 4,000 serial titles; and third, Proquest Digital Dissertations containing masters theses and doctoral dissertations from over 1,000 graduate schools and universities worldwide.

In 2005, the following are additional subscription databases available at the General Reference Section: IEEE Xplore, Litfinder on literature, Proquest Academic Research Library, Proquest Digital Dissertations, Science Direct (Business Subset), and Scopus on humanities, life, physical and social sciences. On trial is SpringerLink.
