LIBRARIAN LICENSURE TEST
SAN CARLOS CITY — The Virgen Milagrosa University Foundation (VMUF) here reasserted its “supremacy in library education” when all its four 2017 candidates-examinees passed the Librarian Licensure Examination given last September 2017.
The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) identified the 100 percent batch of VMUF’s new librarians as Arjay C. Alano of San Carlos City, Pangasinan; Jay-Ann Mae C. Alano, San Carlos City, Pangasinan; Myra DG. Bautista, San Carlos City, Pangasinan; Irish Dyan P. Camba, Bolinao, Pangasinan.
The PRC announced that 545 out of 904 passed the Librarian Licensure Examination or 60.28 percent national passing average.
Dr. Ma. Lilia P. Juan, president of the VMUF congratulated the successful examinees for demonstrating the academic excellence of the University’s department headed by Dean Efren Y. Ignacio of the College of Information and Computer Studies and Program Coordinator Caroline L. Castillo and their faculty staff.
The VMUF has been producing board topnotchers and placers and has been obtaining 100 percent passing average in the medical and paramedical examinations and also excelling in the field of academics, cultural and even in sports competitions.
Program Coordinator Caroline L. Castillo said that Bachelor of Library and Information Science (BLIS) program is a priority course offering in the Philippines to cope with the country’s requirement of 50,000 academic librarians to run government and private schools that are operating without certified librarians.
Castillo said a BLIS program is an excellent career today for everyone’s future considering the competitiveness in terms of employability, salary and benefits. (NCC)
