Two Silliman University (SU) Main Library standalone computers, holding thousands of Science and Technology research resources, were switched online last December.
Science and Technology Academic and Research-Based Openly Operated Kiosk Stations (STARBOOKS), also known as information kiosks, is a program that provides titles of digitized journals, serial publications, reference materials, annual reports, theses and dissertations, technical and project reports.
Upon free registration, students can access and save digital materials they need on their standard Universal Serial Bus (USB) drives.
STARBOOKS was developed by the Department of Science and Technology’s Science and Technology Information Institute (DOST-STII) and it has made available directories of DOST-STII’s library materials and videos from different DOST agencies.
The information kiosks are located on the first and second floors of the SU Main Library.
