News BriefsRev-up energy!On Feb. 27, all library personnel along with other DLSU-Demployees took time out from a day’s work to rev-up energy in aseminar-workshop on “Employees Wellness thru Oriental HealthyLifestyle.” Dr. Alfonso Lagaya, certified medical acupuncturist,oriented the participants on how to live a healthy lifestyle whichincludes right food to eat, amount of water to drink, sleepinghours and best time to fast. He also indulged the participants in astretching exercises.According to British Columbia Healthy Families blog, theworkplace has a big influence on employees’ health where theyspend much of their waking hours. Hence, the workplace shouldsupport its employee healthy choices through the creation ofa health supporting environment. As noted by Jeff Klein, authorof Working for Good: Making a Difference While Making a Living(Sounds True, 2009), “When the people feel cared about, theycome alive. And that makes workers more engaged and moreproductive, and it becomes a virtuous — and prosperous — cycle.”For its part, DLSU-D’s Human Resource ManagementOffice thru its Training and Development Unit, aside from organizinghealth seminar also launched a series of health and fitness programfor DLSU-D employees from January to March 2014.

News BriefsWhat I’ve learned from Infolitby Edison EspineliInformation literacy is considered an important part of anyuniversity library program because of its role played in academicachievement. Thru information literacy, learners may be able toenhance their research skills particularly in concept identification,developing search strategies, evaluating right information sources,proper use of library online/web catalog, ethical and legal use ofinformation.On Feb. 28, three library associates namely, BenjaminMontallana, Jeenah Marie Galang and I along with my Section Head,Reference Librarian Mary Ann Jimenez-Salvador attended a halfday forum entitled “InfoSMART: Information Skills for Creatives”at The Learning Commons, Henry Sy Hall, De La Salle University,Taft Ave., Manila. Facilitated by DLSU Readers’ Services CoordinatorMarian Ramos-Eclevia, the forum specifically discussed the basics,frameworks and models, essential skills and values, awarenessraising and practical and best practices in information literacy. Ithighlighted the on-going InfoSMART program of the DLSU Manilafor its students and faculty members.From listening to the lecture, I’ve learned and concludedthat information literacy would help patrons deal with informationoverload, inspire and equip patrons to become lifelong learners,empower patrons to become independent learners, support thelibrary’s mission to provide lifelong learning, promote responsibleuse of information for problem-solving, decision making, andcritical thinking and help learner become more self-directed,presume greater control over their own learning. Therefore, Irecommend that information literacy should be 1) incorporated inthe university’s curricular offering in such a way that every student,faculty, and staff would undergo such a program; 2) Administrationshould commit itself to providing the facilities necessary for theimplementation of information literacy program on campus; 3)The university library should develop and provide comprehensiveinformation literacy program for all library users; 4) Resources andmedia which need to be available and accessible should meet thestandard required with the number of students in the university.BirthdayCelebratorsArlene ManzoFebruary 3Cristina NeraFebruary 9Felix Sarreal, Jr.February 12Jeenah Marie GalangMarch 142LibraryVisitorsSt. Mary’s of Minnesota(Dr. Donna Aronson, Dr. JeanneMinnerath, Dr. Moni Berg-Binder)Br.
