It highlights the importance of developing the resources and collection in the library and providing the students with more balanced resources and materials.
According to Ms. Rhea Espina, MSLIS, “the essence of collection development is the collaboration among the members of the academic community.” The opening ceremony was led by Rev. Fr. Mamerto A.
