DLSU Librarian's research made it to a Turkish Journal

Joseph Yap, DLSU Librarian assigned at the Graduate School of Business, Makati Extension Campus (MEC), published his latest article titled, “Technical Competencies of Medical and Health Librarians in a Library 2.0 Environment” at the Information World Journal (Vol. 13, No. 2, 2012). The 22-page article was based on his Master's thesis at the University of the Philippines in Diliman.  The same research was also presented during the 4th Rizal Library International Conference in 2010, Quezon City, Philippines.

The research determined the acquired knowledge, perceptions and attitudes of medical and health librarians in the Philippines on the impact of Library 2.0. The study verified the level of awareness and revealed the gaps among medical and health librarians in the use, creation and adaptation of Library 2.0 tools especially in informing, educating and empowering their users.
