The focus of these orientations were faculty members and REPS. Ms. Analiza G. Linaugo, University Librarian spearheaded the said activity with the support of the librarians and staff. Ms. Ann Vie Magbanua of C.E. Logic Educational Solutions Group was invited as resource speaker.
Likewise, two (2) graduate students of Master’s in Food Science, School of Technology (SOTECH) under Dr. SR. Luzette T. Teruel were also oriented on 07 February 2020 at the UP Visayas CFOS Library, Miagao, Iloilo. Ms. Anna Lisa M. Erazo, College Librarian and Mr. Jason S. Sedantes, support staff, discussed how to use the online resources, specifically the Science Direct and also the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) and iLib. These resources are very helpful in supporting the research needs of students, faculty and researchers.
The Anti Plagiarism Software is beneficial for faculty and researchers because it helps detect if the literatures cited have been copied.
