About The Library

University Library

 

The University Library Diliman encompasses one Main Library and more than 40 College/Unit Libraries. It envisions global information exchange throughout the UP Library System. It is mandated to be the information resource center of excellence in the social sciences, humanities and basic sciences. It strives for full automation, a world-class collection and a staff of thoroughly modern information professionals.

The University Library was officially established by the Board of Regents in 1922, fourteen years after the founding of the University of the Philippines in 1908. The University Library, which was at the same time designated as the Department of Library Science was placed on equal level with other departments of instruction for the services of all colleges of the university. Between the years 1908 to 1922 University constituents made use of small libraries in the various units and colleges of the university and government libraries in Manila for their research and information needs.

The library collections of the University Library have been developed in aid of teaching, research and extension work in the disciplines designated to Diliman. Topping the list of choice collections in UP Diliman are the Filipiniana Collections, which come in print, non-print and digital forms.

Functions of the University Library:

  1. Learning Spaces: provide open, accessible, and engaging spaces, both physical and virtual, to support individual and collaborative learning and creative and critical thinking;
  2. Information Literacy: enhance information literacy and research skills through library instruction programs;
  3. Information Resources: collect, organize, and provide access to information resources in support of teaching, research and creative work, and extension work;
  4. Information Technology: modernize library functions and services, with particular emphasis on new information technologies; and
  5. Archives: ensure protection and longevity of the University Library's resources — digital, analog, and print — through effective archiving and digitization programs.

Main Library

The Main Library, which is the seat of library administration, is situated at Gonzalez Hall in the middle of the Academic Oval. In the light of the reorganization of the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs*, a new organizational structure has been adopted. There are four major divisions which covers the various functional sections:

(a) User Services Division, which lends books and provides reference, research and bibliographic services; undertakes user education programs;
(b) University Archives, which handles University records, UP publications, personal papers of prominent UP officials, alumni, faculty and staff, and 
maintains and preserve books, documents and archival materials;
(c) Technical Services Division, which formulates and implements standard acquisition and cataloging policies and procedures; and, 
(d) Information Technology Division, which 
provides digitization services and develops and maintains Library software applications, information systems and the Main Library computer network.

The User Services Division consists of five (5) readers services sections: Information Services and Instruction**, Filipiniana Books, Serials***, Special Collections, and the Social Sciences and Philosophy Library. The University Archives has four (4) sections: University Records, UPiana, Personal Papers and Preservation Services. The Technical Services Division has two sections: Cataloging and Metadata Services and Acquisitions. There are two sections under the Information Technology Division: Digitization Services and Information Systems and Network.

The Deputy University Librarian, a new assignment, was formed to mainly assist the University Librarian in the management of the operations in the Library on a day-to-day basis, and assume overall responsibility for the University Library in the absence of the University Librarian. Under the Deputy University Librarian are two sections: Administrative Services, which provides support to the functional sections/units of the Library; and, Strategic Communication, Research and Marketing Section to facilitate efficient internal and external communication; marketing of library collections and services, and, research and publication for the enhancement of Library service.

Bulk of the library collection in the social sciences, standard reference sources, local and foreign serials, UPiana and other special collections are found in the Main Library.

The Library’s print and non-book collection is complemented and updated by an extensive and multidisciplinary state-of-the-art electronic (CD-ROMs and online) databases which are accessible throughout the UP System. In the Main Library alone, there are OPAC terminals in the lobby and service sections. and over 40 Internet browsers in the Information Services and Instruction Section. These facilities are made available to library users from 8:00 AM to 12 midnight on weekdays and from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturdays during regular semesters. Several computers are also provided in the other sections for library clients and staff use as well.

To safeguard and at the same time facilitate the circulation of library materials, a library security system with its prerequisite barcodes, barcode reader, magnetic strips, sensitizer-desensitizers and a closed circuit television were installed in the Main Library and other college/unit libraries.

Brief History

Every University Librarian since the University Library was established in 1922 has grappled with four basic concerns: the book fund, staff development, library services and information technology.
 
Mary Polk (1922-1924) from Indiana, USA, was the teacher of several heads of Philippine government libraries.
 
Gabriel A. Bernardo (1924-1957) built the Library in Padre Faura, giving it the reputation of being the best in Asia before the War. He rehabilitated and rebuilt the Library in Diliman after the War.
 
Marina G. Dayrit (1963-1981) systematized library services and the staff training, beefed up the library collection through Ford Foundation grants, developed the Filipiniana Special Collections and Archives, initiated microfilming and computerization.  Atty. Myrna S. Feliciano, College of Law Librarian, was officer-in-charge from 1981 until 1984.
 
Filomena M. Tann (1984-1986) decentralized acquisition and cataloging processes in accordance with revised policies and reorganization of the University Library System as approved by the Board of Regents.
 
Belen B. Angeles (1987-1999) obtained a Ford-Mellon grant to develop the humanities, social sciences and general science collections and to purchase license to use CDS/ISIS. She opened Media Services, converted the Filipiniana Collection to machine-readable form, opened the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC), CD-ROM and INTERNET services.
 
Salvacion M. Arlante (1999-2012) launched the University Library Web site; purchased the integrated library system MAELISA; pursued and implemented the in-house developed Integrated Library System (iLib); adopted the policy of access versus holdings; promoted the welfare of the Research, Extension and Professional Staff; and is exploring alternative information technologies.
