Filipino Librarian: Libraries as Buckets

Filipino Librarian: Libraries as Buckets | The Future Librarian | Scoop.it

"Libraries, archives, and museums are the buckets that allow us to draw the water from the well. Needless to say it is thus an absolute necessity that these be in good shape: no leaks, sufficiently large in size, and always ready to serve. For while available information is enormous, access to it is still quite limited. At this conference you have decided to look for better ways to provide access."  Words of wisdom from the Introductory speech of Fr. Jose M. Cruz, SJ at the 5th Rizal Library International Conference (RLIC) held at Ateneo de Manila University last 25-26 October 2012.
