Accomplishment CY 2013

Our College Library is an integral contributor to the delivery of academic programs and in the pursuit of excellence. The library provides readily accessible resources, develops and preserves collections with emphasis on the college’ chosen area of focus, and offers a learning environment that pursues and creates knowledge.

Library strives to focus its efforts on providing instructional support for teaching, learning and research. The following reports present some highlights of its work and accomplishments in 2013.


Its collections development activities continue to focus on print, non-print, and multimedia resources.  Library staff processed several e-books and other digital resources to ensure links to the library web page.  Two hundred twenty nine (229) titles and four hundred twenty three (423) volumes of books, four (4) titles of journals and twelve (12) titles of magazines were acquired, processed, and used. The library also conducted an inventory count and weeded out twenty one (21) titles due to their physical condition and obsolescence.


The Library remains to be one of the busiest and most vibrant facilities on the campus. It serves sixty five (65) hours a week during the regular periods and nine (9) hours a day during summer. It welcomes and serves almost sixty seven thousand (67,000) customers throughout a year. In‐house services such as circulation, reference, and computer-aided research continually evolve to meet the changing information needs of its clients.
