Lib Science pioneer batch registers 100%

by Jairah Sheila Joy F. Hernani

THE FIRST BATCH of Silliman University’s Bachelor of Library and Information Science (BLIS) Program garnered a 100% passing rate in the November 2012 Librarian Licensure Examination.

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) posted on their website that out of the 812 takers nationwide, only 379 passed the examination. Among these passers are the four graduates from Silliman University.

“When the results were already in the internet, we (the faculty) gathered here (in the library) early in the morning and we hugged each other. It was reallty joyful for us,” Mrs. Rosalina Dinoy, BLIS Coordinator, said.

College of Education Dean, Dr. Earl Jude Paul Cleope, took a close monitor of the takers’ study habits. The BLIS faculty also gave the takers an intensive review class for free.
“After the review, they studied [even] harder. [They had] more sleepless nights. It was really a pressure for them. I told them (BLIS students) that this is a challenge for you. You should do good in your studies because nowadays the students don’t read books anymore, they rely on the internet and copy-paste,” Dinoy said.

Silliman University’s new licensed librarians are: Dela Cruz, Jaime Jose S.; Gallego, Budelia Ruth S.; Miramar, Crescenciana T. and Susada, Irmalyn L.
