American Studies Resource Center opens

Having 8,000 more volumes of books is motivation enough to enjoy it and to boast about it. And at De La Salle University-Manila, we made a big event out of it.

A ceremony was held on October 18, 2000 to formally open the American Studies Resource Center (ASRC) located at the ground floor of the DLSU Library. To mark such a significant collaboration, Deputy Chief of Missions Michael E. Malinowski of the Embassy of the United States of America and DLSU System President Brother Rolando Dizon, FSC signed a Memorandum of Agreement, as a gesture of goodwill and continuing partnership in the area education. Before the signing, the ambassador surprised Brother Roly when he gave a substantial check donation to DLSU-Manila Executive Vice President Dr. Carmelita Quebengco was also at hand to render the warm welcome remarks.

The vast collection was part of the former Thomas Jefferson American Center. The US Embassy donated the books last May of this year, in support of the College of Liberal Arts’ American Studies Program.

Following the open shelf system, the books are arranged according to the Library of Congress classification scheme. The center also offers its Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) collection and is accessible on the internet and other computer facilities equipped with OPAC terminals.

Math Department offers free consultation to all students

The Math Department recently revived the Math Clinic for students who want to avail of free consultation on specific questions regarding a lecture or problems arising from their attempts to solve exercises.

Math Department Chair Dr. Jose Tristan Reyes said the Math Clinic is different from a tutoring program, which implies going through everything starting from scratch. The consultation addresses students’ queries that stem from class discussions.

To make the Math Clinic more accessible to both students and faculty, the Math Department now runs it at SJ 201. Reyes said the new location would hopefully encourage more visitors, unlike before when it was housed at STRC building.

Students may check the availability of faculty members and the complete schedule for this term at SJ 201.
