Dr. Elisa V. Garcia, Chief Librarian, conducts Seminar-Workshop on Citations and Referencing on February 23, 2023 at the Main Library. Referencing covers literature search on online databases and Reference Management.
The seminar is attended by the third year college students of College of Business Education spearheaded by Mrs. Darlene Sabandal, a research faculty.

Students were updated on APA 7th format citations, instruction on how to access information on online databases like Proquest and EBSCO, which are the college’s subscribed e-journals, and other free open-online resources and the installation of Zotero, a free and open-source reference management program for keeping track of bibliographic information. During a tutorial on managing references with Zotero, Dr. Garcia explained to the students how simple it is to store, cite and manage references using this software.

If you need any help using Zotero or managing your bibliographic references, you can come to the Main Library or send us an email at You can also contact our virtual library assistant, ASK LISA , and visit our Website at for additional learning opportunities and information.

One of the library services provided to new students at the start of the academic year is library orientation. Due to new normal setting, the traditional way of conducting the library orientation was transformed into online library orientation. This is a new service that the library has developed in order to introduce library services and resources to students and faculty members, with a focus on the library’s accessibility to its clients despite changes in learning styles. The library provided this year’s orientation to students of all year levels via Zoom and MS Teams in collaboration with faculty members. From October 26 to November 4, 2021, students from the Colleges of Business and Education and Maritime Education participated in an online orientation, while Junior and Senior High School students attended an orientation on November 22, 2021.
