The De La Salle University Library called “The Learning Commons” is located at the Henry Sy, Sr. Hall as it occupies part of the 5th floor, as well as the 6th to the 13th floors of the building. Ms. Ana Maria B. Fresnido, the University Library Director welcomed and personally toured around the Josenian visitors. She shared that building strong linkages and partnerships with the alumni and varied sectors in the society contributed much to what made their library to what it is today. These things helped them to face challenges and adopt necessary changes brought about by technology and clients’ needs.
The next stop was at UST Miguel de Benavides Library, named after its founder, Fr. Miguel de Benavides. A short video presentation was done facilitated by one of their librarians, Mr. Edward Puzon. The library’s first collection 300 years ago were the private collection of the founder himself and from few contributors. This library is known for its rare materials especially the Filipiniana Rare and their Spanish Collections and among others. They are also recognized for their method of preserving, conserving and reformatting their rare and archive collections.
We envision the University of San Jose-Recoletos to be a premier Gospel and Community-oriented educational institution committed to lead in instruction, research, community engagement, and innovation in order to transform Josenians into proactive and compassionate leaders, creators of communion, and dynamic partners of society in the 21st Century.
