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
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.
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.
