Introducing the League of Information Assistants (LIA)

In November 2013, the DLSU Libraries launched the League of Information Assistants (LIA), virtual subject librarians of different satellite libraries or sections of the Learning Commons. Library patrons may connect with LIA  for real time online help for discipline - and course-specific research assistance during library opening hours. Through chat reference facility, LIA answers ready-reference and research questions and provides online bibliographic and technology instruction. As such, LIA will not answer questions related to: (a) computer configuration, maintenance, and troubleshooting; (b) provision of investment, legal, or medical advice; (c) tutoring or homework help; and, (d) job interview preparation.

Aside from LORA (Library Online Reference Assistant) and TOM (Technician-on-the-Move), the following reference assistants complete the league:
