KDC Nooks Updated

The SPUP-KDC Librarian/Knowledge Facilitator Mr. Ronaldo Sumait, and the two Knowledge and Information Resource Network Librarians represented by Mr. Santiago Tagacay III and Ms. Corazon Tumbali visited and updated the resources of the following KDC Nooks:

· Department of Interior and Local Government Unit Regional Office 02;
· Isabela Provincial Library and Museum, Ilagan Isabela;
· Cagayan State University, Lal-lo, Cagayan;
· Cagayan National High School, Tuguegarao City; and
· Tagga Barangay Hall, Tagga, Tuguegarao City

These KDC Nooks serve as a depository of World Bank (WB) publications, books, serials, posters/brochures and audio-visual materials. Most of the donated resources to the mentioned recipients are focused on environmental sustainability, good governance and economic development. Meanwhile, Mr. Sumait took the opportunity to introduce the Open Data Initiative (ODI) of the WB to maximize its usage. The City Library of Cauayan was visited as well and the librarians were oriented on the use of ODI.

The Librarians of the Cauayan City Library pay attention as Mr. Sumait converses the features of the Open Data Initiative and its importance to the research studies of their clients
