Philippine eLib One of the World’s Most Comprehensive

Have you visited the  Philippine eLib site lately? 

The Philippine eLib is a collaborative project of the National Library of the Philippines (NLP), University of the Philippines (UP), Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Department of Agriculture (DA), and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

As lifted from the site, the site is funded through the e-Government Fund of the Philippine Government. The project aims to supply the information needs of all sectors of society in a convenient, affordable, and efficient way of delivery.

Available Resources include:

  • Union catalog of the 5 partners;
  • Digitized Filipiniana materials including theses and dissertations;
  • Special collection/researches of the 5 partners;
  • Online resources/subscription to electronic databases.

I’ve just done a token search on the subject “e-learning, elearning” .  Well, the first few entries on the list didn’t have anything to do with e-learning, just plain learning on a vast array of different fields.

I’m just rushing through the site, but for those who care to try it out, the eLib is a timely and valuable resource for today’s global, digital Pinoy.  Who can argue with 25 million pages culled from our very own Filipiniana and global databank resources, all at the click of a mouse?
